Symptoms of kidney Stones
What are the Symptoms of Kidney Stone?
Stones are produced from chemicals which have crystal lied in concentrated urine; the crystals can enlarge over time
The symptoms and signs may include:
- no symptoms of kidney stone – if a stone stays in your kidney, it may not cause any symptoms at all, and may only be found “by chance” (usually on an X-ray or scan done for another reason)
- aching in your loin (flank) Kidney stone pain often starts suddenly. As the stone moves, the pain changes location and intensity.
- non-visible blood in your urine – found only when your urine is examined under a microscope or tested using a sensitive dipstick
- infection in your urine – stones are a known risk factor for urinary infection
- ureteric colic – severe pain as a stone passes down towards your bladder from your kidney
When a stone moves down from your kidney into your ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder), you may get severe pain (known as ureteric colic). This can be very unpleasant, often with nausea and vomiting. It usually starts in your loin, and may radiate down to your groin or testicle/labia as the stone moves down (pictured right). Pain often comes and goes in waves, which is made worse by the ureters contracting as they try to push the stone out. Each wave may last for a few minutes, disappear, and then come back again. Above paragraph we study about Symptoms of kidney Stones.
When the stone gets close to your bladder, you may get a constant need to pass urine although there is nothing to pass; this is due to the stone irritating the base of your bladder and “fooling” it into thinking that it is full. A stone in this position can also cause:
- burning when you pass urine;
- pain at the tip of your penis or urethra (water pipe)
- Visible blood in your urine.
