I was diagnosed with kidney stones in March in the ER.
Passed 1 there...not sure how big it was.
CT showed 3 more. 2 1mm and 1 3mm.
I passed the 1mm on my right side over the summer. Not too bad, ibuprofen helped as narcotics make me sick
My question is that I have been having symptoms of back pain (lower more so than flank) on my left side, lower abdominal/pelvic pain and just the past 2 days morning nausea. This has been going on for about 2 weeks now. I am just really uncomfortable and feel better with ibuprofen, a heating pad & rest.
I had this morning nausea thing happen over the summer and an upper GI showed no ulcer, only my remaining stones and lower back scoliosis.
Do you feel symptomatic for weeks at a time? It seems like everything I read addresses the excruciating symptoms as you are passing the stone.
I hate to keep running to the dr. but am always worried that what I am assuming is kidney stone related could be something else. At what point do you make an appt to be checked out?
