Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Can i use a heating pad for a kidney stone?

You can

Kidney
but it will not work. The stone blocks and the smoothe muscles in the ureter work overtime to push it forward, and that sounds out alarm signals big time causing nausea, vomiting sweating and PAIN. The heating pad solves none of the cause or even any of the aftermath. Go to the ER.

Will a heating pad give any relief for kidney stone pain ?

It can but careful!

Heat can relieve the pain; have to be careful as it can cause burns. It may also cause some chronic changes in the skin if used for a long time. It is better to get treated.

Can drinking water help pass my kidney stone?

Perhaps

Diabetic_kidney_problems
One of the treatments for kidney stones involves increasing the flow through the kidneys, and water may help some, but an IV of saline (salt water) increases it much more. Drinking salt water is not usually well tolerated, but large volumes of oral or IV fluids that contain various salts and water may help if the stone is not attached or stuck in the ureter.

Please help! What is the best way to pass a kidney stone?

Hope it's small

Kidney
Stones greater than 5mm in diameter may be too large to pass without help. Drink lots of water & ask your urologist if tamsulosin, which can dilate ureter on affected side, would be helpful for you. Otherwise other options are ureteroscopic laser lithotripsy or shockwave lithotripsy. Good Luck
