Does kidney stone pain come and go? *edit*
I'm just trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with me!
Last night I got intense, excruciating pain in my back on the left side out of the blue. The only thing that really helped was a hot bath. I was also having trouble peeing for a couple hours. I took a Tylenol PM (the only thing I had) and eventually fell asleep for a few hours. Then woke up around midnight and was in pain again. Eventually fell asleep for a few hours again.
Now today I have not has as intense pain but it feels like it's in my back and around my front. I thought when you have a kidney stone you were just in pain until it passed.
Just trying to get an idea of what this could be. It's not like I can go to the hospital or doctor until my husband gets home at 5 because my car is in the shop.
*edit* The pain is not as intense as earlier now. I'm not sure if this is what I have. Maybe I just hurt my back. I decided to wait until tomorrow morning to see how I feel. Money is tight and I just can't justify going to the ER for something that might be ok in a day or two. Thanks for all the info earlier ladies!
