How do I know if I have a kidney stone?
Kidney stones can cause a severe cramping pain in your lower back or side. The pain usually moves down toward your abdomen, groin or genitals as the stone moves down the urinary tract. Other symptoms may include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Cloudy or bloody urine
- Feeling like you need to go to the bathroom more often than usual
