i have had about 4-5 kidney stones since 2012 and i am now 20. ive been so paranoid recently about what i eat because im scared of getting another one. i was finally able to see a urologist earlier today hoping this would give me some answers so i could start eating again. he did an ultrasound and told me i have a 2 mm kidney stone on my right side. im pretty sure it is still in my kidney. once it moves out will it hurt really bad? the one i had before this was april 2016. im so scared im going to end up back in the ER most of the times when i get them i wake up with pain in the middle of the night and have to go. could this be because i was dehydrated? does this mean at some point ill be in excruciating pain again and have to go to the ER im really scared of eating anything now since i dont know what kind of stones i have had in the past i assumed calcium oxalate because i drank a lot of iced tea. but i stopped right after i had one in 2016 i might have had it one or two times since then but im not sure. i suffer from anxiety/panic disorder and just feel very scared. its at the point where i dont want to eat because im terrified of it getting bigger and needing surgery. any advice? 😞
