Hello,l Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, it is not a normal condition that you have to live with.

Here urgent intervention is necessary.

You have to consult with urologist for removal of the stone.

If you neglect it, then many disease can be caused by this like profuse anemia, pain in abdomen, and many more.

So, do not waste time. Consult with urologist immediately.

Thank you for the query.
Generally kidney stones are harmless if are small enough to move down through ureter. It can be serious if it will obstruct urine flow so the kidney urine pressure increases. If it last long enough can lead to kidney destruction and degeneration.
The other danger which kidney stones bring is urinary tract infection. Urologist consult is a very good idea, as some stones might need medical attention to get rid of them.
In a meantime you should drink plenty of mineral water (like 2-3 l/24 hours). Hot baths and muscle relaxing medicines should ease the pain.

Hope this will help.
