When To See A Doctor For Kidney Pain
Kidney Pain?: I would like to ask what you mean by "kidney pain". Quite often, disease involving kidneys are not associated with symptoms. If you mean having low back pain, it may not be related to your kidneys unless there are other associated symptoms such as blood or odor in the urine. I do encourage you to see a primary care physician. Hope you feel better soon.See 3 more doctor answers

My dad had kidney pain. Went to a doctor, he said there's a 2.7mm stone in it. Is there any way to braek the stone naturally? Pain is less with pills.
Depends: The stone & urine composition would need to be evaluated to assess the possibility of medications to dissolve it. For example, small uric acid stones can be dissolved with hydration and medication to change the ph of the urine. A stone 2.7mm in its greatest dimension would have a reasonable chance of passing on its own as well without any medications.See 1 more doctor answer

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.See 1 more doctor answer

Go: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
Kidney doctor: Depending on one's problem, one would see either a nephrologist (N) or a urologist (U). A N deals with kidney diseases while a U deals with problems with urination due to obstruction or bladder problems. If you have hypertensive disease of the kidneys, a N would be your choice. If you have a big prostate or urinary stones, a U would be the physician you go to.
