does eating spicy foods cause kidney stones

Would taking TUMS before going to bed (without food) cause kidney stones to form? I've done this 3-times over a 2-week duration & got a 3mm stone.

no. not likely causative for kidney stones. the risk factors for most types of kidney stones have little to do with calcium consumption. Especially short term as you've described.

Seems like you have a lot going on and it is mostly right sided, but these complaints are not likely related, especially the eye and the leg pains. It is best to see your primary care physician to help separate these pains and determine individual etiologies so a treatment plan can be made.

Ureteral stone


The size of the stone does not correlate well to the intensity of the pain. The nearly unbearable pain of "ureteral colic" is from spasm of the muscular ureter. Although likely to pass on its own within a few days, a 2-3mm stone sometimes will get stuck and fail to progress. Usually after 5 days, I recommend having the stone extracted with a ureteroscope as an outpatient.

Can excess calcium cause kidney stone?

Yes and no


Most kidney stones are due to calcium stones. For that reason, taking too much calcium increases your risk of a kidney stone. However, we cannot predict if someone will get a stone. Some people with higher calcium levels will not get stones while somebody with lower calcium levels can get stones, so it is hard to say if excess calcium will cause a kidney stone.

Yes, IF...


If you are prone to calcium oxalate kidney stone formation, peanut butter was one of the high oxalate foods to moderate or avoid along with beans, beets, berries, green peppers, chocolate, coffee, colas, and wheat bran. Consider almond butter instead if you are an oxalate stone former.
