    The number of cases of kidney and gallbladder stones is increasingly becoming common. Kidney stones are caused due to the collection of salt,  calcium, uric acid and minerals. The stones may stay there or travel to other parts of the urinary tract. The size of the stones may be a great variant. It may be really small in many patients while it may be as large as the kidney itself. The formation of kidney stone occurs due to the accumulation of some minerals in the urine. A person who is not properly hydrated has urine which is concentrated with a high level of minerals in it. The high concentration of minerals can lead to the formation of kidney stones.

    We are going to enlist some of the common symptoms of kidney stones-

    • Pain in the back or belly

    Pain caused by kidney stones is one of the most severe types of pain experienced by the human body. It may be as severe as labor pain. It may be intense enough to land the patient in the emergency. The stone causes pain when it starts moving into the ureter, which is a narrow tubular structure. The movement might cause a blockage and subsequently exert pressure on the kidney. The pain often comes in waves and changes location and intensity according to the position of the stone. The severity of pain may not necessarily be according to the size of the stone as little stones causing blockage can also cause a lot of pain.

    • Pain or burning sensation during urination

    If the stone is between the ureter and the bladder, you will feel pain during urination. The pain or burning is a symptom of UTI as well.

    If you feel the urgency to rush to the bathroom every now and then, it might be a sign of kidney stone. This sign is symptom UTI also so be on the lookout for other symptoms as well.

    • Blood in the urine

    Also called hematuria, it is often seen in case of kidney stones. The presence of blood could be sensed by the red, pink or brown color of the urine. If you have microscopic hematuria, you will not be able to see the presence of blood in the urine but it will show after tests.

    • Cloudy or foul-smelling  urine

    The urine of a person with a kidney stone will have a foul smell and color while that of a healthy person will be clear and odorless. The odor may be a sign of UTI as well. A person may be suffering from both conditions at the same time.
