Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

Kidney stones, when they stay in the kidney, typically do not cause pain. But, when they travel out of the body through the tubes of the urinary tract (including the ureters, which connect the kidney to the bladder, or the urethra, which leads outside the body), their movement may cause:

  1. No symptoms, if the stone is small enough (silent stones)
  2. Sudden, severe pain that gets worse in waves.
  3. Stones may cause intense pain in the back, below the ribs, lower abdomen, groin, or genitals.
  4. Nausea and vomiting
  5. Blood in the urine (hematuria), which can occur either with stones that stay in the kidney or with those that travel through the ureters.
  6. Frequent and painful urination, which may occur when the stone is in the ureter or after the stone has left the bladder and is in the urethra.
  7. Pink, red or brown urine
  8. Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
  9. Fever and chills if an infection is present

Pain caused by a kidney stone may change for instance, shifting to a different location or increasing in intensity as the stone moves through your urinary tract.

I was getting constant headaches and daily nausea... And then I heard my diagnosis - stage 3 kidney disease. I tried a lot of different medications that my doctor prescribed to stabilize my kidney function, but got no real results. However, one day I scrolled through facebook and accidentally found an alternative treatment method. It was an ebook created by former kidney disease sufferer. He claimed that he reversed his impaired kidney function and cured his kidney disease with only natural remedies. Of course, I was skeptical about it, but I had nothing to lose, so I gave it a go (by the way, you can find it here - http://healthykidneys.info/getreport ). After reading it, I didn't believe that some changes in my nutrition could help me to stabilize my kidney function, but I started to follow it... My doctor was surprised next time he saw my blood test results - they improved!! my kidney disease decreased to stage 2 and my kidneys are getting better every day :) After all I went through - I wish I tried alternative treatment methods earlier...

Is it possible to have high creatinine and urea, due to kidney stone, or kidney infection?

June Green McPherson Thanks for sharing. It's so strange to get them undetected!

I have a large stone in my ureter right now that was discovered with a CT scan. Never any pain . This mystery began with swollen calfs and ankles that I thought was shin splints. Going to have the blast this Thursday.
