Customer Question
Do you think I might...
Do you think I might have pulled a muscle or have kidney stones?
Since this afternoon I have this flank pain that is rather colicky- comes and goes but the intensity is maybe a 2-3 on a 0-10 pain scale.
I noticed that when I bend a certain way it hurts more and I know that mYbe with stones position change doesn't do anything
I had exactly 1 year ago a full abdominal ultrasound nd no kidney stones were seen but I guess they can form in 1 year right?
I am drinking lots and lots of fluids now

Thank you for your question.

Pain with kidney stones can vary in intensity from 1-10.

So, it could still be a stone regardless of the fact that you had a scan previously that was negative.

Sometimes stones are missed on ultrasound so the best test to pick up a stone is a CT scan.

So there still is a possibility that you could be having a stone and I would recommend that you should have a CT scan to have this diagnosed and ruled out.

Do I need to get this done even if the pain goes away and does not come back?
It seems like the two ibuprofen I took did not do anything
Doctor: Dr. SH, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

If the pain does not go away in the next 12-24 hours you must have this done.

If the pain worsens you should have this evaluated in the ER.

If you start having other symptoms like fever, vomiting etc you must be seen in the ER.

Let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
