It can be a urinary tract infection. Finally, neurologic problems can cause this. You really need to get evaluated by your physician and have a thorough exam and urine test. ...Read more

Indirectly.: The pain caused by obstruction of the urinary system by stones can cause the blood pressure and heart rate to rise. This can also occur if there is an associated infection. In the absence of symptoms like pain, we don't commonly associate stones with cardiovascular signs. That being said, there is evidence that obesity, high-fat diet, & sodium are risk factors for both hypertension and stones. ...Read more

Plan for each: You have a variety of symptoms, some of which may be related ... others not. I don't think there is one diagnosis that explains all of your symptoms. You need to work closely with a doctor you have confidence in to diagnose and properly treat all of these. Don't get discouraged .... wonder about smoking with the high neutrophils. If so, this is a good place to start. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I have a 7 mm kidney stone will it pass on its on or will it get stuck ? I'm due to fly in aweek scared with the stone !

The chances of stone passage for stones 5-7 mm, 60%; for stones 7-9 mm, 48%. Good luck. ...Read more

How painful is it to pass a 1mm kidney stone?

Almost none, but...: A 1-mm stone is most likely still attached to the papilla of a calyx and its odd to detach and drop into ureter is very low. If happening, a 1-mm stone should have an almost 100% of chance to pass with no discernible pain.
