kidney problem help ?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had excruciating pain in the lumber area of my back and I thought I had put my back out  and after the second day i started on pain killers

The pain has moved to my groin and my thoughts were mebe it was stones       i went to see my doctor he checked my blood presure and it was spot on he olso checked my urine and it was clear  

and the other thing he could'nt understand was that I only have thepain when I am up and walking around but when I sit down it disappears     He told me to give it a couple of days if its still the same he will send me for a scan      I was wondering if anybody on the site has had the same experience and be kind anough to pass on their experience  thank you

    It 100% sounds like stones to me,its very common to get pain in the kidney area first then have it radiating down to the groin area.Slightly strange that the pain goes when you sit but..hey... everyones different.

    Dont put up with the pain any longer than you have to.

    One thing we are all told is to drink loads and loads of water to try and flush the stones through and also hopefully stop them getting bigger.

    Good luck and i hope you get some relief soon...
