Ugh. I feel your pain - had two before I was 24, and a kidney infection.

Yep, my cousin's wife had a stone while she was pregnant (she has two kids now) and she said the stone was FAR worse. Prolonged pain, no epidural, and no light at the end of the tunnel.

...Still not as bad as yours, though.
Hope you are feeling better....

I am told he shattered the stone with the soundwaves.

Straining my urine now....drugs are helping.

I heard William Shatner sold his kidney stone to Golden for $70,000 dollars and used the money to build a house for Habitat for Humanity. It's true. I saw him on Oprah.

Look into it.

My husband has had kidney stones. I remember him writhing in pain one time, obviously when it's moving through your insides. We have the basket & stuff here. Last time he felt bad, he captured it on his own (with cup) and brought it in. And he suffers from headaches too. I wonder if there's a correlation I think he takes Maxalt for that.
Back in '93 we were in Vegas for a few days. He wasn't feeling well, and we ended up in the ER all night. I think they gave him a shot of something & then he was feeling no pain (Demerol?). When they released him in the morning, we ended up checking out & flying back home. What a trip

And I believe the kidney stones run on his side of the family, with either his sister & brother or both...

Hope you are feelin' alright now

Dread, is there anything that predisposes you to this type of occurrence?

Global warming may raise kidney stone risk

By Dan Vergano, USA TODAY
Global warming could do more than hurt polar bears: It could force a rise in kidney stones, scientists warned Monday.
"We see a relationship between kidney stones and temperatures everywhere," says study co-author Margaret Pearle of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. "Even in places with air conditioning, warmer temperatures mean more stones."

Kidney stones result from salts crystallizing in the kidneys, often triggered by dehydration, causing famously painful blockages. Nationwide, kidney stones strike about 12% of all men and 7% of women over their lifetime.

Warm southeastern states get 50% more cases than northeastern ones. The new research says global warming will drive this so-called kidney stone "belt" north triggering at least 1.6 million new cases by 2050.
