Kidney Stones QuestionMale-35 Years old
This past Saturday I was standing in the Living room. I was completely fine one minute and the next I was in terrible pain. I thought I had twisted my back as I was putting on my shoes. I waited for the pain to subside, and it didn't.
I went to lay on the bed to try and find a comfortable position, but that wasn't happening either. I was hurting very bad on my right side. In my back below my ribcage right above my hip. It went from there to the side back and forth.
I tried to wait and not go to the hospital, but after about 10 minutes it must have hit me very hard. I immediately told my wife that we have to go now. I couldn't even get my shoes on. On my way to the car I felt as if I was going to vomit, and pass out. Once in the car I had broke out into a cold, clammy sweat. It only takes about 5 minutes to get to the Hospital from my house, but I really thought I must be dying. It scared me so bad.
Once at the hospital I told them I needed to get into a bed immediately. You know how that goes. Anyway, by the time I saw the triage nurse I was completely fine. No pain at all, except for this uncomfortable feeling in my back. Kinda like a bruised feeling.
I decided to come home. She said it sounded like Kidney stones, and to stay if I wanted and wait ( there was about 14 people in the ER, I knew it would be about 4 hours at least) I decided to come home. She did tell me to drink plenty of water and cranberry juice.
All that night I had this uncomfortable bruising feeling in the right side on my back in the same spot I mentioned earlier. It didn't hurt, It's just that feeling you get when you know somehting isn't right back there. I finally went to sleep and woke up the next morning feeling fine. It's been two days now, and I am terrified each time I have to urinate. I am so scared of this, and have been since I was about 17.
What should I do? What should I expect? Is this pain going to return? What hurts the most, The actual passing of the stone or the pain I had in my back? I just don't know what to expect. I don't like this waiting at all. I am terrified not knowing what is going to happen the next time I urinate. Since I didn't stay at the ER that night I really have no diagnosis. Someone please advise. I am so scared. I worry a lot anyway, and this has gotten me down in the dumps.

A single dose should deal with the pain.
Of course you could get some 3x potency and take once a day for 5 days every 8 weeks -- this may ensure that you dont ever get the pain again.
