A kidney stone is also called renal calculi, urolithiasis, or nephrolithiasis — are deposits of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys.

Kidney stones vary in size and shape. There are some that are small and some can grow so large that they can take up the entire kidney.

Kidney stones form when there is too much minerals in your body which can accumulate in your urine.

So whenever you’re dehydrated, your urine seems to darken because of its higher mineral concentration levels.

This condition can happen to anyone, but most especially common among men, people who are obese, and those who have diabetes.

When a person has higher mineral levels, it’s more likely that a kidney stone will form. The usual sensation for kidney stones is pain because most stones need operational surgery.

There are many factors that can cause formation of kidney stones. It may range from your diet to certain medications. These stones affect your urinary tract.

Here are several natural remedies for treating kidney stones:

Blood In The Urine

This is a common symptom in people with kidney stones or urinary tract stones. The blood in your urine may appear red, oink, or brown. This is in fact common for people with hematuria.

Nausea And Vomiting

These two symptoms are also common for people with kidney stones. These both happen due to their shared nerve connections between the kidneys and gastrointestinal tract.

Cloudy Or Smelly Urine

Having kidney stones will make your urine foggy or cloudy and foul-smelling. This can be a sign of an infection in your kidneys or another part of the urinary tract.

Fogginess is already a sign of pus in the urine. The foul-smell from your urine comes from bacteria.

Pain In The back, Belly Or Side

Pain caused by kidney stones is one of the most severe types of pain among certain conditions.

Some people who have experienced having kidney stones compare this condition with childbirth or getting stabbed.

The pain usually starts when a stone moves into the narrower ureter. This will then result in a blockage which will create a pressure buildup in the kidney.

The lain generally comes and goes, which makes it worse when the ureters are contracting, trying to push stones out.

Kidney stone pain may last for a few minutes which will disappear and then come back again. Larger stones are also more painful than small ones.

Fever And Chills

These are also both a sign for an infection in your kidney or another part of the urinary tract. Having fever and chills can be a serious complication of kidney stones.

Fevers that occur with an infection are usually high 38 degrees celsius or more.

Burning Pain During Urination

When a kidney stone reaches the section between the ureter and bladder, you’ll start feeling pain when you are urinating.

The pain you may feel when you are urinating is a sharp or burning sensation.

For milder cases of kidney stones without the need for an operation, the use of natural remedies may be the best treatment for you. Natural remedies for kidney stones include:
