Medication: First rule out a urinary tract infection or bladder inflammation. If no infection, treatment with a medication for overactive bladder may relieve your urgency. Pyridium (phenazopyridine) is sometimes given to relieve painful urination. An orthopedic surgeon should investigate your ongoing back and hip pain looking for hairline fracture, etc. And, if indicated, ordering bone scan, ct scan, mri, etc. ...Read more

Kidney stone.: Kidney stones up to 5mm in size will predictably pass on their own. Just drink plenty of water so you produce a lot of urine, dilate those ureters and allow the stone to pass. It may hurt while it's on its way out, but it'll pass. Bigger stones will likely get stuck and will cause tremendous pain and will have to be removed by lithotripsy or cystoscopy. ...Read more
A metabolic work-up: The best way to fight stones is to understand your metabolism. I believe that most stone formres should have a metabolic work-up. This should include blood levels of calcium, 24 hour urinalysis (looking at calcium, citrate, oxalate, etc). Good intake of water avoiding certain foods (high in calcium, oxalate) and medications (citarte, diuretics) may be necessary to fight stones. ...Read more
Yeah, that's big.: A stone up to 5mm in size will predictably pass, with variable degrees of pain. A 12mm stone is going to get stuck if it decides to move out of the kidney. You should get that stone managed before it starts to move. ...Read more
Metabolic issue.: Kidney stones are initiated by metabolic derangements in the handling of urinary oxalate, uric acid or calcium, for example. These derangements can be hereditary, and they allow for crystals of these substances to form. These crystals serve as a nidus for stone creation. ...Read more
Pain: Depends. Sometimes are symptom free for years but if they start to move from kidney down the ureter people can experience intense pain that can come and go but usually some degree of continuous pain. As the stone move down toward the bladder the pain may change from the midback area moving down toward the bladder. People say this is one of the worst pains. Go to er or see your doctor asap. ...Read more
Depends on site: If the stone is in the ureter (kidney to bladder tube), there is something call "peristalsis", which helps move things along. That would mean a periodicity to the pain: every few minutes. However, if the stone is in the kidney, and blocking the exit, it may be a constant pain; if it is in the urethra (exiting), it may be excrutiating and constant! ...Read more
ESWL, fluids, etc.: Whatever can dissolve or break down the stone is used to remove it. For example, eawl or extracorporial shock wave lithotripsy use shock waves to break up the stone from outside the body. Meanwhile patients are encouraged to drink plenty of fluids to hopefully pass the stone on the urine. If these and other things fail then surgery might be done, as a last option. ...Read more
