    Also consider diverticulosis (small pouches is the intestinal tract) which is very common in men over 40.
    Just have to hope it doesn’t develop into diverticulitis.
    Stay very hydrated, (which you would be doing anyway if kidney stones are suspected.)

    Having had 4, all different, one blasted by sonic waves, one by laser, the other was pulled out, and one apparently passed. There was nothing pleasant about any of them. All were horrifically painful. I fell your pain. I'd see a doctor.

    Get them all the time. One thing that helps is Squeeze lemon juice into water. Drink lots of lemon water! Acid from lemon juice helps break them down/dissolve them at least to passable size.

    Have a good one

    I think I had one a few months back. Not to sound odd but my "member" starting tingling at work and shortly after I got a pretty stout pain on my right side, near my kidney. It was very very unpleasant and just kept building, then it sort of went away. About 10-12hrs later it hit again, while I was trying to sleep. I drank water like a fish and basically curled up on the floor, no position was comfortable. That one went away but was worse than the first time for sure. It hit a third time, not as bad but it's like I could feel something wanting to come out as I pee'd, and I think it did, but it after that, I was fine. It was very unpleasant, not sure if it was a stone, but I think it probably was.

    Well now that everyone has given him signs and symptoms, he will have a better memory of the pain. Google Factitious Disorder.

    That is the most common description of a gallbladder attack. 60-90 bad minutes and then fine. For now.

    Wife had a gallbladder attack 8 years ago. Took her in to the local ER, pain went away, they discharged her & we went home. Only to have the attending Resident call us back in after reviewing her case. Turned out she had an inflamed gallbladder that needed to come out. Don’t wait too long to go see your doctor.

    The “gall bladder attack” has a different clinical presentation than kidney stones. The former has upper middle and/or right sided abdominal pain that gets worse with palpation, aka “Murphy’s Sign”. There is frequently right sided shoulder pain and/or upper back pain between the shoulder blades. Almost universally, the pain is rapid onset and following a meal high in fat.

    Had surgery to have a handful removed from my R kidney back in 2014. Have drank tons of water every day since and never had an issue. Worst pain of my life, no question.

    "Gallbladder attack" was over 40 years ago, and never a problem after...so it probably wasn't gallbladder...but stones that ??? (I did pee into a strainer, but never found anything, not in the shower...)

    Reading this while drinking my morning coffee is giving me sympathy pains. I too now drink lotsa water, but keep a few pain pills ready in the event a big one comes on a weekend night when all the pharmacys are closed. So far mine have passed with no drama.

    My every day drink is one part Simply Lemonade to two parts Deer Park sparkling spring water. Makes a nice refreshing beverage that I drink all day, pretty much every day. Straight lemonade has a bit too much sugar for me in the quantities I drink.
    I like to stay hydrated.
    Usually add a couple ice cubes made from frozen spring water, I don’t care for our tap water.
