Kidney stones are composed of small deposits of minerals and can occur secondary to a number of different conditions. Except for causing pain that may be quite severe, they usually don’t cause any permanent damage to the kidneys. Most of the times they can be managed effectively by simply drinking plenty of water and using pain medications. However, in other circumstances, you may even need to undergo surgery.
The stones that are located in the kidneys and are of small size usually don’t cause any symptoms. They may pass out on their own without any medication or surgery during micturition. The symptoms usually occur only when the bigger stones pass through the Ureters or urethra.
In general, the patient may experience one or more of the following symptoms in case of kidney stones.
History of kidney stones in the family, inadequate hydration and certain dietary patterns are found to increase your likelihood of developing kidney stones.
