So for months now I have started to get increasing pain in my left hand side back and some (not much tenderness) around belly.

I have an ultra-sound on Friday and really hoping the discover what is causing this.

Up again at 3am (only got off to sleep at 1am) to take more pain meds - then awake not much alter for work.

Miserable existence at moment - this sucks.

    I feel for you.

    I am having trouble with a kidney stone.

    Have 2 appointments with 2 urologists.

    Really just want it sorted as I'm sure you do.

    Thinking of you, especially on Friday.

    Take care and keep in touch

    I meant to say/ask "Is it worse for others when the go to bed - in terms of the increase in pain" ?

    I dread going to bed because the pain that almost immediately takes hold.

      Yes mine is sometimes worse when I go to bed.

      It's strange, if it is bad during the day and I go to bed it settles down.

      But if I go to bed at night it is quite often worse.

      Hope you get on OK today, let me know.

      I saw a urologist yesterday and I have an enormous kidney stone.

      No chance of either passing or blasting it so it will have to be surgery.

      The sooner the better as far as I'm concerned.

    I am fairly sure you have a kidney stone,  In the meantime, drink a lot of water with pure lemon juice in it. I changed my diet and make sure I drink a lot of water.  Be aware of high oxalate foods if your stone is calcium-oxalate based.  I have not had a recurrence for four years.   I am sorry you have to go through this.

      Thanks for advice. I saw a urologist a couple of days ago and have a huge kidney stone. No chance of either pass or blasting it, so it will have to be surgery.
