Re: 3mm kidney stone - can it cause pain for several months?
Hello - I am new to the healthboard and wanted to reach out for some help. After reading 2+ response - "I had 2 2mms stones for over a year and was treated for back pain for that year until it was diagnosed. So yes it can go on for months and the stone may hurt even when you are not passing it. Good luck!" - I had to ask for some help. It is now 1 year and 7 months for me being treated for "back pain". Long story short, I have been to every doctor under the sun and just last week I was told by a medical intuitive to get my kidneys checked. I had an ultrasound done and just got the results yesterday - bilateral kidney stones. One 3mm stone in the right and multiple in the left, the largest one measuring 7mm, all nonobtrusive. My lower right back pain is excruciating and constant and doesn't go away. My question is do you think that the doctors will take into consideration the horrible pain before they say that they will not be able to break it up because it is too small (3mm)? Also, if all of my pain is on the right, why do you think the bigger and multiple stones are on the left? Does the pain of kidney stones transfer from one to the other? I sincerely would appreciate any help! Thank you in advance!
