Symptoms of Kidney Stones varies. Kidney stones form when the levels of salt and some minerals in the urine are high for a long time.
These salts begin to accumulate into small stones, which may come out on their own when urinating, or they may remain in the kidneys or stand in the ureter to hinder the flow of urine and cause pain and harm to you.
Here are symptoms and signs that may indicate that you have kidney stones:
1- Backache or one of the waist
Kidney stones cannot be detected until symptoms and pain begin to appear.
People describe that the pain caused by kidney stones may be worse than birth.
Sometimes the pain of kidney stones begins to be a minor pain that can be tolerated, but it can quickly escalate into a sharp and painful spasm, the pain can be severe for a minute and then it completely subsides, and so on.
The disease usually feels pain in the back, one of the waist or under the rib cage, and it can spread to the lower abdomen or thigh.
Kidney stones in men can cause testicles or penis pain.
2- Changing posture and discomfort
When the stone is mobile and unstable in a place that may cause its owner to rest in no position while moving or sitting, you will find him changing his position to find which one is more comfortable.
Nausea or vomiting
You can feel nausea or vomiting when the stones block urine flow, which can lead to inflammation and kidney swelling.
