Every time I get a kidney stone it makes itself known with this pain in my hip. I get down on the floor, wallow around, it feels like a pinched nerve or badly pulled muscle. It always takes a while to remember "Wait. I've done this before."
I was at my M-I-L's on Christmas night, wallowing on the floor. Got dizzy, nauseous, finally kind of tearfully asked hubs to take me to the motel. Thought I was just overextended. The hip thing went on, and on, and on. We just came on home. Yesterday the pain started up my side and got to my kidney. Ah ha!
Why does the pain START in my hip? Is that some weird SCI thing?
A natural remedy for kidney stones = 2 oz olive oil, 2 oz lemon juice, mix and chug, follow by big glass of water. You have to be hurting to do this, it's foul. But I think it helps! I'm tender on that side today but the stabbing and burning is gone.
Also I finally read there is a connection between thyroid disorders and kidney stones. THAT explained a lot, to me. They both came on at the same time, for me. And the stones come when I'm stressed and over-extended.
