I too am a kidney stone producer, but this most current episode is the worst. The pain just won't go away. I am on week five now. I went to a doctor in October he said he can't feel them unless they are in the ureter so I thought it was something else. I found out I had a cyst on my ovary but when I went to my OBY in massive pain he said it couldn't cause that much pain. I went to the ER. and the CT scan showed one on both sides in the ureter. I tried the usually flushing process but to no avail. I saw a Urologist last week and he told me that no way could I still be in pain. WHATEVER! He has obviously never experienced Kidney stone. I am going to see my OB again but what I really want is for someone to say. Let's get them out.

I have had kidney stones in the past and am currently fighting the symptoms again. I feel run down. My back is hurting and I ended up in urgent care again. They gave me Tylenol with codeine and sent me home. I am so tired of kidney stones.
