How long has this been going on and have you had any tests or studies to evaluate it?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
9months or so. No tests
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Well this doesn't sound at all like a kidney stone problem

You've got back pain with radiculopathy--the pain/numnness goes into your right leg

At this point you need to have this evaluated with an exam, x-rays and an MRI scan of your lower back to check for a disk problem

Usually this isn't a surgical situation and it responds to physical therapy

Please let me know if you need any more information

The pain is not in my back, but in my lower right side
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

Where exactly?

My question: what causes kidney stones
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

OK

In general they just happen--sometimes after a period of dehydration

Usually they pass in two or three days

Sometimes high calcium or uric acid levels in the blood can cause them

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
