Kidney twitching

A year ago I was told I have Medullary Sponge Kidney. At the time I was passing a lot of blood in my urine but was able to pass whatever stones that were causing the blood without much pain. I have not had visible blood since.

About 4 months ago I noticed a twitching sensation in the area of my right kidney. Its not painful but it is annoying and is becoming much more frequent. I am wondering if I need to see a doctor about this or if there is a home remedy that could alleviate the twitching?

Seems every time I visit the doctor they run every test they can think of just to milk my insurance to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars and then tell me what I had already discovered online for myself.

Thanks for any advice,
Happy Thanksgiving!

Re: Kidney twitching

Numerous MRIs, CT scans, Xrays, Ultrasounds among various other tests quickly add up. I have had issues with herniated discs that have been the bulk of the billings, luckily I have great insurance.
