Will drinking extra water temporarily reduce the pain form a kidney stone?

Will drinking extra water temporarily reduce the pain form a kidney stone?

With more fluid, the ureter dilates and the stone may pass through more easily. Most of the time, narcotics are necessary to control the pain and may help relax the ureter to get the stone to pass too. ...Read more

Does barley water help with kidney stones?

Does barley water help with kidney stones?

It may, but the idea: Is to pass more fluids through kidneys to wash particles away. This may be achieved by just drinking excess of 2-3 liters (quarts) a day.

I prefer the latter drinks. If chf, fluid intake needs doctor supervision. ...Read more
