Having kidney stone, blood in urine, pain in urethra. Solution?

I was in the ER on Oct 9th this year with another 4 mm stone . I believe it has not all passed. I have strained my urine and only got a few tiny stones. I went to the Urgent care a week later with very bloody urine and he gave me antibiotics in case I was getting a bladder infection . That did not help, so I went back to the ER about a week and a half ago and that doctor did nothing for me except tell me I did still have a lot of blood in my urine and gave me pain meds. I have a lot of stones as it is in my kidneys, most of them 3 mm or larger, total of about 17 in all. I feel as though this stone is still lodged in my ureter because I feel it sometimes and still have pain and blood. The worst issue is my urethra pain, especially on the left side. It feels like I have to urinate round the clock. The only relief is to take pain meds or put heat on the area. I have no insurance because I lost my job and it is really worrying me due to the fact it has gone on so long and this pain in my urethra is not an infection, and I have tried Azo over the counter and that does nothing. Help me.

Nephrologist 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
If you have multiple stones in your kidney they can definitely cause blood in the urine. Also as the stones pass down the ureter into the bladder they often cause severe pain.
I suggest that you should see a urologist as early as possible for definitive therapy for the stones
Meanwhile drink lots of water.
Good luck.
