Question: I have had kidney stones before but just this weekend i had a very strange occurance it felt like I was passing a kidney stone but also felt as if my kidney was shutting down it was horrific pain more than a kidney stone and it lasted for 15 min. Went to dr and he sent me for CT scan which shows nothing, since then I have had two more episodes of this pain which the pain shoots from my kidney through my vagina any suggestions?

Brief Answer:
Possibly you have kidney stones.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you are having kidney stones.
Using flexeril can help release muscle spasms of the ureter and help you pass the stone out through urethra to bladder or outside.
Most of the time they can be detected in CT scan but there is a possibility that the CT scan may have missed them.
This can be the only cause of shooting pain from kidney to vagina.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
