: Hey there, I'm hoping someone here can give me some advice. In the last 8 months I've had 3 bouts of kidney stones, with multiple stones each time. My problem is that I'm still having severe pain in my kidney area. My urologist did a few tests and says my kidneys are functioning normally. I'm a 37 year old woman in otherwise good health. I've been to an orthopedic doc who said the problem is not with my back. I also saw a pain management specialist who talked to me for about ten minutes and then told me to do some stretching exercises for my back, that there was nothing wrong with me except that I'd been in bed almost constantly for 8 months. I did the exercises, but they didn't help at all. Now my family doctor is at a loss for what to do for me. It's a constant battle to get pain medication, and I'm in severe pain without it. I've been out of work since May and am in danger of losing my job. I'm scared and fighting off hopelessness all the time. I feel like I'm playing the game by their rules and it isn't getting me anywhere. I'm always afraid of running out of meds, and I want to know what's wrong with me. Any suggestions? Please...

Chris, if you really feel that it's your kidneys then continue to bother your MD about it. Twice now I have had sever kidney pain. The first time I thought I was really going to die,so I cleaned up the house and threw everything I didn't want people to see, etc. Then I wrote a letter to my daughter and put it in an envelope, and told my husband to give it to her if or when I die. Well you can see I didn't die.
