Kidney stones are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys. The kidney filters blood from waste that is produced in the body when you have too much waste and not enough fluid in your blood, these wastes can build up and stick together in your kidneys. These clumps of waste are called kidney stones. They are usually its an irregularly-shaped solid mass or crystal that can be as small as a grain of sand up to the size of a golf ball.
When a large or even sometimes small kidney stone can be trapped in your ureter (the tube that drains urine from your kidney down to your bladder). When this happens, it can cause bleeding, fever, excruciating pain as well as it will keep urine from leaving your body.
Common kidney stone signs:
- Pain in lower back or side of your body (colicky in nature).
