Therefore, it is possible to have a UTI coming on. See your physician and have a urinanalysis done with a culture and sensitivity. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I passed my first kidney stone 1 1/2 months ago. Once in a while, I feel a pain in my kidney, but it goes away. What does this mean?

If no other stones then pain is not likely related to urinary tract. If symptoms continue see doctor for a renal ultrasound to check kidneys and if family history of stones may need 24 hour urine to check risk factors ...Read more
Depends: The site of obstruction by stone determines where the stone is. Upper ureteral/ renal pelvic obstruction leads to flank pain or tenderness.
