Severe low back pain. Blood & protein in urine with dehydration. Walk in clinic stated kidney stone?

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

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

I passed a kidney stone a few weeks ago but have continued to have odd smelling urine as well as lower back pain (on the side of the affected kidney.)?

Nausea, dizzy, night rr trips, some sudden right&left lower back pain and right pelvic pain. Pain is 3-4/10. Does this sound like a kidney stone?

Maybe... but : Kidney stones usually cause more severe pain, closer to 7to 10/10. The nausea, low back pain could go with kidney stone, but possibly a kidney infection as well. Possibly appendicitis. Keep a close eye on your symptoms. Fever should prompt you to see a doctor. ...Read more
