Keep haveing mild kidney pain like a dull ache had catscan doc said have kidney stones in kidneys bloodwork can't fig out why alway aching doc  stumped?

likely not kidney: In general, a stone in the kidney will not cause pain. Only if the stone leaves the kidney and either travels down to the bladder or worse, if it gets stuck in front of the kidney and obstructs the kidney, would a stone be a cause of pain. A dull ache in the back, especially if related to certain positions, is likely musculoskeletal and you should try motrin/advil, heating pads and rest. ...Read more

Wakeup freq with nasuea, mild stomach n kidney pain and shivering scan showed nuttin shivering makes pains worse what's th best way to stop the shaking?

Quinine may be effective in controlling this, but the answer here is to find out what is going on. I hope that you are seeing a pcp, possibly a general internist. If not, would make an appt and take a full detailed history and all records with you. Best. ...Read more
