If the stone is stuck in the ureter, this is what would cause pain. in this case, a medication called Flomax can help to make the stone pass faster. This has to be prescribed by a doctor. You need to start by going to the ER or an urgent care center is you have pains they can do an imaging study to see if you are passing a stone. If you have one, then they can proscribe the Flomax. other that and drinking lots of water, there is nothing else that will help this pass.
