Plenty: Having a kidney stone can be painful. However having meat with abdominal pain could be due to a stomach or intestinal issue. Without any history or physical exam we will not be able to identify the exact cause. It will therefore be best to have you see your doctor or if you are in severe pain to go to the emergency room as soon as possible. Good luck ...Read more
