If you are having problems urinating there could be a stone blocking ureter. You need to have it checked out at a doctors office or the ER. My husband passed 3 huge stones ( the doctors could not believe he was able to pass them) & 2 small stones in one week. He was feeling better but when he went to our doctor & told her, she had him go in for a ct scan. The scan showed a 12 mm stone blocking his ureter. We are trying to get him into a surgeon a.s.a.p. We know he can't go to long because it could result in kidney damage or kidney shutting down. He has had 9 surgeries 2 through the back, 3 up the penis & the rest shattered & then had to pass all of the fragments. Please don't wait but get to your doctor & have it checked out.

Hi whiz - I wrote before but I wanted to tell you that you can also drink plenty of lemonade.! It is also very good at helping to pass the stones. Also you can take some Azo to help with the spasms. Make sure that you that you don't have a kidney infection though. If you take the Azo it could cover up an infection so make sure you find out if it's just stones or an infection. Good Luck.
