What are the symptoms of kidney stones?

If you have a very small kidney stone that moves easily through your urinary tract, you may not have any symptoms, and may never know that you had a kidney stone.

If you have a larger kidney stone, you may notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain while urinating
  • Blood in your urine
  • Sharp pain in your back or lower abdomen
  • Nausea and vomiting

If you are having any of these symptoms, contact your health care provider.
