Bladder stones

rennyro posted:
I am awaiting an appointment to have a sonogram done to see if I have stones present in my urinary tract. My only indicative symptom for stones is urinary frequency. No lasting pain is involved...only infrequent and very mild discomfort in my pelvic area or middle back that comes and goes very quickly. I always thought that if a stone was problematic it would cause pain, and also would also cause nocturna which I also do not have. Anybody know?

Stones in your urinary tract can cause some of your symptoms and they should show up on an x-ray. A urinary tract infection can also cause your symptoms.
