Urinary or Kidney stones are hardened mineral deposits that gather on the way from the renal pelvis in the kidney to the bladder. These originate as microscopic particles and over the course of time develop into stones. Medically this condition is known as Nephrolithiasis, or Renal Stone Disease.
The kidneys filter waste products from the blood and adds them to the urine. When waste materials in the urine do not dissolve completely and the kidney is unable to evacuate them, crystals and kidney stones are likely to form. Some stones may pass out of the kidney or get lodged in the ureter (tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder), and cause severe pain that starts from the lower back and radiates to the side or groin.
Kidney stones can provoke a severe, sudden pain if they move along the ureter, the tube leading from the kidneys, and they can cause a lot of health problems if they block the flow of urine. The pain can often be accompanied by vomiting. If they move into the ureter (the tube from the kidney to the bladder) they cause intense pain and blood in the urine. A lodged stone can block the flow of urine and build a backpressure in the affected ureter and kidney. Increased pressure results in stretching and spasm, which cause severe pain. If left untreated it can lead to temporary or permanent kidney failure and or pus in the kidneys.
