Seven symptoms you will experience if you have kidney stones

According to healthline, a kidney stone is a hard, solid mass that forms in the kidney from substances that are normally found in urine. These substances can include calcium, oxalate, uric acid, and others. Kidney stones can vary in size, ranging from very small stones that may pass through the urinary tract without causing symptoms, to larger stones that can cause severe pain and complications.

Kidney stones can cause a variety of symptoms, depending on their size and location. Some common symptoms of kidney stones include:

- Intense pain in the back, side, or lower abdomen that may come and go in waves.

- Painful urination.

- Blood in the urine.

- Nausea and vomiting.

- Fever and chills (if an infection is present).

- Difficulty urinating or frequent urination.

- Cloudy or foul-smelling urine.

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to see a healthcare provider for evaluation and treatment. Kidney stones can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
