Kidney Stones Symptoms

Kidney Stones Symptoms - What could they be?

Many people do not know this but there are several different types of kidney stones. Among those types, the most common that most people get is calcium oxalate stones.

The others are "struvite stones," "uric acid stones," and "cystine stones." These types differ depending on what the cause is from and their characteristics.

Knowing what type of kidney stones develop in the body will also help you do the things that will prevent their formation in your body system.

Kidney Stones Symptoms

In order to determine if one is suffering from kidney stones, here are some signs and symptoms:

#1 Pain

Pain in varying levels is one of the major warning signs of kidney stones. The amount of pain a person experience varies depending on the size of the kidney stone and the length of time that it remains undiagnosed.

This is because as the stone increases in size and weight, attempting to pass the stone becomes more and more difficult to do. The ureter (the tube which allows the urine to flow from the kidney to the bladder) is designed to pass urine which is a liquid. It was never designed to pass any solid objects like a kidney stone!

Another form of pain due to kidney stones is from renal colic, which causes waves of severe pain that lasts for more than 10 minutes and can even last for about an hour depending on the location of the kidney stone.

#2 Blood in the urine (hematuria)

The presence of blood in the urine is quite scary but this is one of the most common sign of kidney stones.

#3 Nausea and vomiting

There may be the symptoms of nausea and vomiting which are associated with the pain of having a kidney stone.

#4 Painful urination and urgency

Pain during urination, and possibly, the urgency to urinate are usually seen in children and adults.

The importance of proper diagnosis

Almost 50 percent of the people who suffer from kidney stones would likely get it again in the next 10 years. Why is this? Many people do not make the necessary diet or lifestyle changes to prevent it from coming back again.

People who are likely to suffer from kidney stones can go to any hospital's Emergency Room or "ER" for prompt attention.

Diagnosis can be done through an assessment of the person's clinical history, a physical examination, laboratory evaluation, and x-ray for follow up. Having early diagnosis can definitely help you determine which type of kidney stone is present and would lead to faster and reliable treatments.
