Symptoms of Renal colic
Symptoms of Renal colic: Introduction
The hallmark symptoms of renal colic are a severe sharp, stabbing pain in the flank area on the same side of the lower back as the location of the underlying kidney stone. Renal colic often comes in waves of very intense pain that can be accompanied by sweating, pallor, nausea and vomiting. Episodes of renal colic can last from hours to days.
As the kidney stone moves down the ureter toward the bladder, the pain of renal colic moves from the flank area to the lower abdominal area and into the groin. Pain may also radiate into the testicles or the labia. If the kidney stone is able to pass into the bladder, renal colic generally resolves.
The underlying cause of renal colic, a kidney stone, can occasionally lead to complications in some people. If the kidney stone becomes lodged in the ureter, it can block the flow of urine from the kidney resulting in dysuria (difficulty urinating) and potentially serious, even life-threatening complications in some people. These include kidney infection, sepsis, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, hydronephrosis, kidney damage, and kidney failure....more about Renal colic »
