Change in position moves stones?

Has anyone ever experienced if they move a certain way it seems to make their kidney stones start to move? When I bend forward I can feel my stone start moving. It's like it's literally pushing it along by moving that way. Curious if anyone else has had this happen.

    Wow. After dealing with a stuck stone, if I were you, I would try to see this as an advantage. I drank several gallons of water over a 3 day period. I did this twice actually. Then I found out that my stone only moved 2cm along the ureter. I was so disappointed....I don't know how big your stone is, but if it's able to pass on it's own, I would chug the water, and get it out since it likes to move anyway. Just my opinion. In any case, I hope it resolves for you soon.

      Thanks. I actually have quite a few in both kidneys, so doesn't really help to get them out. More just keep coming along and it takes me so long to pass just one. I envy the people who have one bout of pain and the stone comes out. That has NEVER happened for me. I hope your stones resolve as well!

      I am so sorry you have to deal with so many stones. I hope that improvements in medicine will come along soon that help people like you who have chronic stones. I'm hoping that mine was my only stone. Although, thinking back, I think I may have passed smaller ones spontaneously. When I read about people like you, I just feel so badly for your situation. My ordeal lasted about 5 weeks, and it was the worst time of my life. I am terrified about the possibility of more stones. The pain was so excruciating because of one little stone that wouldn't pass. I couldn't work and after the stent was put in, it was uncomfortable to wear pants because of the dang string protruding. It's more like fishing line! I will be keeping you in my thoughts.
