How to tell the difference between a kidney stone and lower back pain?

Not always easy: Kidney stone pain is generally unaffected by movement. Patients often bend and twist trying to get relief. Pain often radiates down into groin and may change in nature as the stone moves.

Sometimes radiates to buttock or leg and may be felt across entire back. ...Read more

Also, kidney stones can become infected from pyelonephritis (kidney infection - not a typical urinary tract infection (uti)) and be challenging to treat. Please see your health care provider and consider a referral to urology. ...Read more

Had l spine xray and CT scan for kidney stones, all clear. Low back pain..Would l spine xray have shown lower back tumor? No stones, uti, etc.

Consider requesting an MRI which shows the bone, but also shows the nerves, discs, and other soft tissues of the back and is therefore much more sensitive than an x-ray. ...Read more
