Kidney Stones: The pain that occurs as a result of kidney stones comes from one thing and that is obstruction. So, the answer to your question is no. Non-obstructing kidney stones can not be felt at all. However, a stone can sometimes move in and out of an obstructing position. Imaging studies may catch a previously obstructing stone when it is no longer causing blockage (obstruction). ...Read more
I had a kidney stone on christmas it was tested and it was bc of oxaltes I was put on special diet, is this serious? Is this hypoxaluria?
Many paths to CaOx: While your stones are made of calcium oxalate, the cause for why you make stones is best assessed by undergoing a 24-hour urine collection. This, paired with blood work, can help to show why you make stones. The answer could be elevated urinary oxalates.... Or not. Other causes include low levels of citrate or magnesium in your diet (easily replaced), low urine output or high urinary calcium. ...Read more

Hi! Is it normal to still have severe pain that increases when you walk/move at all after passing a kidney stone?
Possibly: The kidney may still be inflamed/swollen after recent stone passage and therefore be sensitive to movement. In addition, if the stone caused irritation during passage, some blood clots may have formed and are now trying to pass through the ureter (kidney tube), causing pain. Key question is how many stones you had on the affected side (maybe another one is passing). If pain continues see doctor ...Read more

Why does my teenage daughter keep getting kidney stones? She's just gone to the hospital for her third kidney stone. Is this a sign of something more serious?
Children that form kidney stones, especially multiple, usually have one or more of a variety of problems. For children that have normal urinary tracts (normal kidneys, normal ureters, and normal bladders) most of these children that do not have known syndromes or medical conditions will have underlying metabolic disorders that affect the way the kidneys filter and process minerals. Some children have low citrate levels, some have high oxalate, and some have other conditions. It is critical to evaluate the stones composition and the 24-hour urine studies on a child with kidney stones and especially with a child that has multiple kidney stones.
It must be determined that the child has normal urinary tracts and any other syndrome or conditions that predispose to stones. ...Read more

Hi. I was put on a med for the last mth to hopefully help pass a kidney stone.
I've experienced some severe pain at times but now I have quite a bit of blood in my stool .... is this expected to happen

It's important whether it's bright red or dark/tarry. Regardless, it is worth getting seen by your primary physician as soon as you can. If the amount of blood increases or your feel dizzy/light-headed, go the to the ER. ...Read more

I went to the hospital because I was severe pain and I was told that I am passing a kidney stone. The doctor sent me home with medicine. My doctor said it take up to 48 to 72 hours of passing the stone is that true? I am a teacher so I am standing all day
Partially true: It can take a week or more or you may not pass it. .or it can pass while you're reading this. If the pain goes away for a few days, it probably passed.
