Kidney Stone..??
SamIam27 posted:
I am not sure if I am having a kidney stone or not. I have never had one but my husband is usually the one who gets them at least twice a year. So he thinks I might have one but I want to double check. The past few days I have been having diarrhea and I noticed that it was more of a red brown color more of the red than a brown color to it and I still had dark urine (because at first I thought I had a bladder infection and was dehydrated) but I noticed today that I have diarrhea still and the color as well as I described but I also noticed my lower back all the way to the front of my lower part of my stomach where my ovaries and all that stuff is at is hurting. Could this be an actual symptom of kidney stones ?
