Kidney stones are pesky in nature. They typically cause a pain that is frequently described patients as the “worst pain ever felt in there lives”. This pain also radiates from the sides all the way to the groin and abdomen. Sometimes, you may feel the pain to be increasing in intensity and occurring in waves. However, the story does not end there.
Kidney stones can also cause other symptoms like burning pain while passing urine, fever and the sensation of ‘wanting to throw up”. In the most worst case scenario, if you do not get a kidney stone removal treatment, you may end up chronic kidney disease. Sometimes, a very large stone that is untreated can also result in renal failure as well.
Thus, it becomes extremely crucial to get a diagnosed kidney stone removed as it is a medical emergency and also since there is a real risk of long-term kidney damage.
