Not at all..: Acute kidney stone as it is passing down can cause some bleeding, thus urine testing for presence of blood and not stone.

A spiral ct is an excellent test these days and can help detect where and how big the stone is. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a kidney stone that is in my kidney and I feel like I have the constant need to urinate but only a little comes out. Is this normal?

I have a kidney stone that is in my kidney and I feel like I have the constant need to urinate but only a little comes out. Is this normal?

Possible infection: Constant urgency to 'use the bathroom' is a sign of an urinary tract infection (u.T.I.). It is best to get seen, provide a urine sample (ua) and get treated. If a kidney stone is 'still in the kidney' it should not cause any symptoms. Only when a stone leaves the kidney and gets 'stuck' in the ureter (duct to bladder) then it can cause pain/bleeding. Hope you are better. ...Read more

I m suffering nocturnal urination all the time. I urinate for every 15mints before sleep. Is this due to my kidney stone or something else?

Stones cause pain and usually not urination. Hopefully your doc will find everything normal. Good luck. ...Read more

I had blood in my urine could it be that I'm taking calcium? I also had pain on my right upper back I was told it was kidney stone. Is this true?

Is that so?: If an imaging study was performed that showed you have a kidney stone, then that's probably why you have the blood in your urine. If there's no imaging study, you don't know if it's a kidney stone or not, and getting imaged would probably be worthwhile. Why are you taking calcium? I can't recommend it as a general 'women's health' measure especially if there's a question of nephrolithiasis. ...Read more
