re: How to tell if you have kidney stones


It's possible. It does increase your probabily, but is more case dependent. It's based on your body's ability to break it down.

I was told drinking lots of sweet tea was going to give me kidney stones. Truth???

I was told it was probably the root of mine. Drinking tea and eating ice cream.

Damnit. I drink shitloads of tea

I also drink lots and lots of beer though. Maybe I should lay off the tea.

Kidney stone pain is pretty sudden and believe me, no mistaking it. Well, unless you think one of your organs are in a vice grip. That is a potential feeling too...

I've had at least 3 kidney stones that I know about. Urologist told me to drink the cheapest beer I could find and drink a lot of it. Passed everyone of them.

I'm no doctor, but I think you have to have some kind of disposition to getting them. I drink A LOT of dr pepper and sweet tea, and I have gotten them just this one time. So I don't know.

Well that settles it.

Done drinking tea. Back to beer whiskey and water. I don't want to experience pissing out a buckshot

Buckshot is smooth. Most kidney stones are not.

Of course about 20 minutes ago I drank 1.5 liters of home brewed deliciousness. I figured it would help you not get them because it makes you piss.

When I've peed today it's been like I only have a little bit of the force I normally do plus the amout is smaller. I've drunk a ton of water and that hasn't helped. 24 year old never had one


I once told my doc that I thought I had kidney stones. He said that wasn't possible before examining me. I asked how he could know that. He said that I was standing upright and speaking in complete sentences.

True story. It was some kind of urinary tract infection--or advanced stages of the clap. I never really wanted to know which.

I think you have more of a prostate issue than a kidney stone one. If you had kidney stones.... you would know from the pain in your side/lower back.

They say it's as close as men can come to experiencing the joys of child birth. I've had 6 and they've all varied in pain and size. I had one that had to be broken up by the Lithotripsy machine. This broke it up into 6 pcs which was a joy to go through. The only time I had pain was when they were moving around in the kidney and making their way down the urinary tract. The passing part was more uncomfortable than anything. Prayers sent if you do have one.

Doesn't sound like a kidney stone. Definitely go get it checked out and be prepared to take a catheter if you are having serious trouble peeing.
