I think I have kidney stones... anyone here able to offer any advice?

I was/am a heavy drinker, however on Sunday I had to stop due to excruciating pain which is in the lower left of my back. It gets worse at night, when I say worse I mean incredible pain... It wakes me up around 4am and from then I have to walk around the house looking for various positions which make me feel comfortable for a minute or so until the pain increases.

When I cough it really hurts, when I breathe in the kidney area hurts.

I can handle this pain, even though it is pretty god damn intense. However... I have read that passing these babies is WORSE than giving birth? Please, no. I am a man, I was not meant to experience this.

So Doctor's appointment in a couple of hours I think he will confirm what I think.

Can anyone offer natural remedies which they have had experience of?

It sure sounds like stones. Starts in the lower back then moves to the front just before you pass them. I'm not going to lie, passing them sucks badly. But it's such a quick pain, and immediately after, your other pain is gone. If you can save the stones, you can take the with you to the doctor and they can analyze them to see what caused you to have them. With me it was sweet tea.

I now get them a few times a year, and passing them is old hat. I hear others aren't so lucky.

Go see the doc though. He will give you some stuff to make it all not hurt so much and once you pass them, you will feel like a new man. (but you will be a bit gun shy at the pisser for a few weeks)

I don't have any personal experience with kidney stones, but I have heard that Dr. Miller's Holy Tea can make a huge difference. Just look up what other people have said, and give it a try if you think it might help. It is expensive. 8 gallons worth costs about $30. You only need to drink a couple of cups a day, and more will make you run to the toilet. That is the only natural thing I've ever heard of that might work. I use the tea for other reasons, but I can say that it is good stuff. Contrary to the thread that said the human body cannot be detoxified, you try this tea and it will detoxify you. It might not make you feel very good when you are detoxing, but I will vouch for it and say that it helps. Like I said, see what people say online about that tea and kidney stones. Good luck.

Welcome to the worst pain you can get.
Passing them is a nightmare and once you get them you get them for the rest of your life.
A tip olive oil and plenty of lemon juice...helps break them down and pass them.

Drink lots of coke, it can dissolve them. I had kidney stones in the past, the star shaped ones which are the worst, I spent time researching options- destroying them with ultrasound etc and found that drinking loads of coke Can get rid of them.
Good luck. Mine hurt like hell!

As Boymonkey said,drink lots of fluids. When you start to pass them, you want them out. If they stop half way, you will walk around for hours holding your wanker. (not a good look if you are in public)

And as was also said, on the bright side, once you pass them, the pain will be gone.

The stream will be flowing and all of the sudden it stops for a second and then continues. That brief pause was the stones finding their way to the outlet. First one is the worst.

It's true, and people at work will find you passed out on the floor in the toilet with your doodle out laying in a puddle of pee. Then the crowd will gather and workmates will start taking pics and you'll end up on Liveleak or 4chan. Then when you walk your dog down the street, the neighbourhood children will point and laugh saying "Hey, there's that guy!"


With that though I'll leave you a picture of waterfalls.

If the pain gets to an extreme level, dont bother with a&e, call an ambulance, i was advised that by a doctor, ive been taken to a&e before for stones pain, there was a long wait, i ended up passed out on the floor of the waiting room before i was seen, they do take kidney stone pain seriously, my friend compares the pain to child birth with no meds!!a reply to: and14263

I had to have kidney stones removed twice now.

One was stuck in a ureter and removed by crushing it with a laser.
The other one never left the pelvis of my right kidney and it was an inch in diameter. They had to go through my back and the kidney itself surgically to remove that one.
If you have calcium oxalate kidney stones, be prepared for a restrictive diet that sucks. No potatoes, chocolate or peanuts/peanut butter.... that's just for starters.
