Passing a kidney stone can be very painful (think giving birth!). You may feel pain that comes and goes in your side or flank, or radiating to your groin. Your symptoms may include nausea and/or vomiting, dark urine or even blood in your urine. What to do:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Try sitting in a warm tub
  • Take Tylenol or ibuprofen (Advil, etc.)

If you can’t stand the pain and can’t wait until our office opens (8:30 am, Mon. – Fri.), the nearest emergency room can do an x-ray to see if there is a stone and give you pain medication. Please note that practice policy prohibits us from calling in pain medication after hours.

If you have a fever (more than 101.5 degrees Fahrenheit), or so much vomiting that you can’t keep liquids down, proceed to the emergency room. If you can make it until the morning, we can see you early at one of our locations. All of our offices open at 8:30 am, Monday through Friday.
