Hi Christina...stones in the kidney can cause intermittent pain/acheness. So, that's probably what you are experiencing. Don't ever
let a doc tell you that stones in the kidney cannot hurt! That's BS!! These stones just don't sit there. They move around tearing stuff up. That hurts!! If you are having pain that's intolerable then talk to your doc about some pain meds to have on hand, since the pain is usually intermittent. I'm sorry you are going through this right now, but you are not alone. I'm right there with you going through the same thing with my remaining kidney. Please take care and keep me updated, ok??
