Im passing a kidney stone!!!!! I am a 21yr old female and this is like my ummmmm 9th time to pass a stone in the past 4 years.... and this is the first time I am trying to do this alone. I had a KUB done yesterday and my right kidney is loaded with small stones and I have some pain medication from my dr, but OH MY LORD IM IN PAIN.... i didnt want to go to the ER and still dont... but im about to die.... i have drank at least 6 glasses of water and i cant seem to urinate.... the dr assured me that the stones are small enough to pass but my GOD I WANT TO DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have the feeling like I need to urinate, and have had that feeling for the past 5 hours but just cant do it..... ANyone have ANY suggestions that might help make the pain any less???? Thanks!
All I can say is that I am "lucky" im passing one this week instead of next when classes start back up....

Pain meds, which you need to go to the ER for.

PLEASE go to the ED and/or contact your PCP now. We cannot advise you for it is against the TOS of the site to offer medical advice.
I know these are VERY painful and you need treatment from your healthcare provider.
