Pain on right side, chest pain, lumps. Had kidney stones

I am a male, 31yrs of age, and having pains on my right side starting from the lower back to the front of my right side, but not past the oblique area . I noticed the pain for about two weeks now, and it seemed to have happen around the same time I started having more pains in my chest from the lumps that I have been seen for. Not sure if the pain is coincidence. I have had several kidney stones when I was 18 due to my high calcium diet and hard tap water I used to drink. The pain is not the same. It doesn t not seem to be worse when I touch it, twist, or do any activities.

hello.your pain appears very typical of what is called a renal colic (due to kidney stones)

your chest pain may have a different origin as i dont know what kind of lumps you have been investigated for.

generalised pain and aches ,bony pain along with calculi (stones) may be a part of calcium metabolism disorder as in hyperparathyroidism but you need thorough investigations to come to a diagnosis.

get yourself eveluated for renal stones by a urosurgeon and investigated and if required he might ask for a physician opinion.

otherwise kidney stones is a very common problem to have and recurrence and associated symptoms and signs need. thorough eveluation.

all the best.

Nephrologist Dr. Rakesh Madhyastha's  Response

The pain you are describing sounds more like a musculoskeletal pain rather than a pain of the kidney stones. However the description also indicates a plueritic kind of pain (of the lining of the lung). I advice you to follow up with your physician for an x ray to rule out pleural pathology.

I hope I have answered your query
