What are the symptoms of kidney stones?
Tiny stones may not cause symptoms. Stones in your bladder may cause pain in the lower abdomen (belly area). Stones in a kidney or ureter may cause back pain, usually in the area between your ribs and hip. The pain can also be across your belly and down between your legs. The pain is very severe and comes and goes.
Other symptoms include:
- Feeling sick to your stomach and vomiting (throwing up)
- Having reddish-brown or bloody urine
- Feeling like you need to pee more often
- Having burning or pain when you pee
