I have a kidney stone that is in my kidney and I feel like I have the constant need to urinate but only a little comes out. Is this normal?

Possible infection: Constant urgency to 'use the bathroom' is a sign of an urinary tract infection (u.T.I.). It is best to get seen, provide a urine sample (ua) and get treated. If a kidney stone is 'still in the kidney' it should not cause any symptoms. Only when a stone leaves the kidney and gets 'stuck' in the ureter (duct to bladder) then it can cause pain/bleeding. Hope you are better. ...Read more

Ct scan can also give information on the stone. ...Read more
