    Kidney infection /pain question

    Hello- I am a 30 year old female with recurrent kidney infections and stones. I also have interstitial cystitis (was diagnosed two summers ago) I have a neurogenic bladder and have to self cath. I was just in the hospital for 3 days because of a kidney infection.

    My question/comment is- the pain. I am in constant pain. My kidneys hurt all day, every day and it's sucking the energy out of me. Even when I don't have an active infection or passing a stone my kidneys hurt. I just had a scan done and there are 7 stones on my left side, 9 on my right. As I was being discharged yesterday, I was trying to explain to my urologist that my kidneys HURT. He kept saying the infection was gone, the stones are in my kidney, there's no explanation for my pain.

    This makes me feel like I'm going insane. Anyone else deal with chronic kidney pain??? What can I do??? I'm so tired of doctors telling me my kidneys shouldn't be hurting because stones IN the kidney don't hurt. Something in me is hurting- and I need some help. I'm wiped from the pain. And so frustrated.

    Thanks for any advice you can give me!
