Is it Gallstones or Kidney Stones?

I've been experiencing minor pain sensations underneath my ribs on both sides, and lower back. Sometimes, I feel the sensations right down my spinal cord and between my shoulder blades. The pain isn't bad, it's just annoying and bothersome. The best way I can describe it is like tiny shards of glass poking around my body, especially my backside (I know, it sounds silly). I had these same sensations about a month ago when I thought I was trying to pass a kidney stone. Is it possible that it may be trying to pass kidney stones, or maybe gallstones? Thanks.

This does not sound like passing any stones. It is more like nerves from your spine playing up for whatever reason. Go and see a neurologist, or back doctor. Usually you don't "think" you may be passing a stone, you are lying in a heap while it goes thru or gets stuck.

I had kidney stones a while back, and the pain was great on the one side of my body, it would make me lay down and curl up. I don't think your pain has anything to do with a kidney stone.
