  • gave me three shots of pain killer cuz thats how bad it hurt, gave me one of them things you put on the toilet just in case the stone passes and a prescription for pain killers and told me if I pass the stone to take it in for testing, told me to drink like a gallon of water a day so it would pass, I never past the stone and the pain went oway.
    But I've started having these pains again and it's been about 15 months since last time

  • sounds like kidney stones. I had them, depending on the size they may give you meds to help piss them out and something to catch them in, its like you have to litterally piss in a cup till they come out. They may do surgury.

  • Try having someone putting there hand in a fist over the kidney have then tap lightly the top of there fist if it hurts on the kidney then you probably have a kidney infection or stones, also drink lots of water, and crandberry juice. (turn there hand side ways)

  • I had a kidney infection when I was pregnant with my oldest, drink lots of cranberrry juice and if it doesn't clear up, you will HAVE to go to the doctor. Believe me, it's worth the $60 office visit and $30 antibiotics.
