See PCP: More information is needed to rule out any dangerous conditions. This will include a proper physical exam, including possibly a gynecologic/rectal one. Some of the symptoms you describe could be suggestive of a thyroid disorder, so bloodwork should be done.

Depending on the size of the stone, it may either stay in the ureter and cause obstruction (with pain & blood in urine) or passes into the urinary bladder. From the urinary bladder it may eventually pass through the urethra to the outside. ...Read more

Go to the hospital if you have fever, cannot tolerate the pain, or if you are vomiting and cannot drink. Stain your urine - you may use disposable coffee filters and save the stone. ...Read more
