The symptoms of passing a kidney stone, acutely consists of a number of things. The most common is flank pain or pain in your side or in your back, on the side where the stone is passing. Blood in the urine is frequently seen and occasionally nausea and vomiting. The location of the pain might change as the stone drops down the ureter tube. The pain can move around the front, down to the lower abdomen or groin. And even in the testicles in men. As the stone goes near the bladder and starts to irritate the bladder wall, a patient might experience urinary frequency, having to go often, with strong urges in spite of seemingly no urine in the bladder. If the urine that's trapped behind the stone is infected, fevers and chills might occur. And this turns an urgent situation into a really emergent situation and immediate medical attention should be sought.
