Lightbulb Pain while stone is still in kidney

I have a huge kidney stone that my doctor says has not ever moved but it is getting bigger and bigger. It is 11mmx13mm in size. I have sharp intense pain on my right side in the groin area and in my upper back. I need to know if you can have pain caused by a kidney stone even if that stone is still in the kidney and has not moved. I really believe that the pain I am suffering is because of that stone. How do I convince my Doctor of this. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of the pain.

Re: Pain while stone is still in kidney

I'm not sure why you doctor is letting stone get so big without trying to treat & get smaller. Even though you stone is in kidney it can still move & this will cause pain. I would try to talk to Dr again & get second opinion on treatment options.
Good luck!
