I am not expert but I personally recommend you to take your pediatric care as much as possible.

Update! It took a urologist to figure out that the kidney stone has never passed, never moved, it's just a sleeping volcano hanging out in my kidney for some future date. I just got misdiagnosed over and over again because I went to the doctors having back pain, and most recently intense muscle spasms (ouch, ouch, ouch!) they do the x-ray and see the stone hanging out in my kidney and instantly ascribe that as the reason for the pain. It took a CT scan to find that have bulging discs in L4 and L5. I have no idea how that happened (I don't recall any serious flailing with the spasms anyway). My only clue is that I have floating knee caps which do occasionally make me limp, so I'm wondering if that's slowly but surly effected the structural integrity of my spine. I don't really know what I'm going to do now (I just found this all out last week). I've got an appointment to see a nerve doctor that I noticed also is involved in yoga progams (I like doctors that are able to look at problems and treatments from more than one angle) next week. In the mean time, I've noticed I feel better when I go on walks, and I'm trying to strengthen my stomache muscles. I'm going through the same confusion, and depression, and anger I went through about 5 years ago when my knee pain started. Any advice or extra thoughts are very welcomed.

I'm no expert, so my opinion shouldn't matter. I just had an aquaintance go through the same thing and he said it was the worst pain in his entire life. He wanted to bite the bullet. He was immobilized on the floor for 2 hours until the stone passed.I'm wondering if during that intense pain you that maybe you tweaked something if you were writhering around in pain?

I'm 24, and I'm experiencing sciatic pain for the firt time in my life.The background on my backpain is that in April, I passed my first kidney stone (hopefull my last too).Since then every menstration has been painful on my back (around the kidney), only this time the pain didn't subside with the cramps as normal, it has continued on for about two weeks now, and has radiated down into my right leg (as far as my ankle) for about a week. I don't really know what's causing this. I had a sonogram which ruled out another kidney stone, and my doctor's assitant called me and said I should see the doctor again if it's still hurting after a while. The only thing is I couldn't get out of her what the time frame of "a while" is. If this were as simple as a strained ligament, or muscle agitating the nerve, when would I expect the pain to subside? When should I consider contacting the doctor again? Could this be related to the kidney stone? I appreciate any advice you might have.
