    kidney stones or not?

    About 6 weeks ago while standing line for lunch with no warning lower
    right side began to hurt, then it spread to lower back too and within
    minutes had to go home could not eat, paid was so back had to walk in
    circles, it stopped in about two hours. I had done extra weight stomach

    crunches at the Y that morning so thought maybe pulled muscle, also
    had to do suddne jump away from car that almost hit me walking into
    restaurant. I had no fever and no tenderness at appendix area. Kept
    some very minor pains then about a week later had two more bouts of bad

    side, flank and back pain about two hours each. About that time I
    noticed that my right testicle was kind of sore too., not bad but
    tender. thought maybe kidney stones which is it may be. I also noticed
    the area to right of navel seem puffed out a little not much, can
    barely see it. I also noticed a few small blisters at same area and
    thought shingles as I am age 53 and male, very fit otherwise.
    The a couple weeks later had the big attack, 10 hours, most of the
    night, never felt such pain, at one point was urinating and pain in
    lower back almost knocked me out but just after that it winded down.
    Went to Urgent care next morning, still kind of sore for side to groin.

    Doctor did urine check and no blood all normal but said it sounded like

    stones and may have passed that bad time previous night. She checked
    testicle, pushed all over abdomen and back too and did not feel
    anything unusual, thought puffed out area may be normal for me but
    seems to feel strained and burning to me a little. gave me pain meds
    and said it come back bad go to ER. Drink a lot too which I had done
    from day 1. The about week lated had milder pain but bad enough for 1.5

    hours. Since then two weeks now no bad pain but feel some small ones
    when I move around or bend over, some shallow burning where area seems
    puffed out, urine flow is good and always clear,
    Not sure , guess need to go to urologist. I am worried puffed out area
    could be cancer or something but why would pain come like that out of
    blue and not be constant too so I pray not that. I wonder if the stone
    or maybe stone 2 is stuck in the ureter and making some swelling and is

    not hurting much since it is not moving. Might need that sound process
    to break it up. I am not good with medical things, have lots of anxiety

    and such. Right now I feel mostly fine but unsure.
