Kidney Stones – What are the Symptoms?

Kidney Stones – What are the Symptoms?   Kidney Stones , when they remain in the kidney, do not normally cause pain. But when they pass out of the body through the tubes of the urinary tract (including the ureters, which connect the kidney to the bladder, or the urethra, which leads out of the body). Here’s what  moving Kidney Stones  can cause:

  • Absence of symptoms if Kidney Stone is small enough (silent stones).
  • Sudden, severe pain that gets worse in waves.
  • Kidney Stones can cause severe pain in the back, below the ribs, lower abdomen, groin, or genitals.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Blood in the urine (hematuria), which can occur with either Kidney Stones that remain in the kidney or those that travel through the ureters.
  • Frequent and painful urination, which can occur when the Stone is in the ureter or after the Stone  has left the bladder and is in the urethra.
  • Pink , red or brown urine
  • Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
  • Fever and chills if there is an infection

The pain caused by  Kidney Stones can change for example by shifting to a different location or increasing in intensity as the stones  move through the urinary tract itself.
