Thank you for the quick reply.
The symptoms you have described of having pain in kidney area & diagnosed with kidney stone over a year ago needs to be treated now.
Exactly what causes a stone to form is not known.Whenever there is a disharmony or breakdown between the two functions of the kidney(to conserve water and to eliminate the body's waste substances) it leads to the formation of stones.
Urinary tract infections, kidney disorders such as cystic kidney diseases, and certain metabolic disorders such as hyperparathyroidism are linked to stone formation.
You need following tests:
-Complete urine examination
-Ultrasound of KUB area
-Other blood tests
Very small stones (like those that are less than ¼ inch or about 5 mm in size) usually can pass through the urinary tract and out of the body on their own with little or no pain.
Exact diagnosis can only be made after physical & clinical examination.So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor for these tests & examination to know the exact size of kidney stone & then treatment will be done accordingly.Till than take tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly in pain relief at back.
Hope this helped.
