Do people pass a kidney stone without urinating?

In brief: Need to see a doctor

Small (usually less than 5mm) kidney stones usually pass with drinking fluid, ie, urination.
If you can't urinate, it's possible that the stone is obstructing the urinary bladder or the urethra. It is better to get evaluated by your dcotor or a urologist.
