Posted on Mon, 30 Nov 2015
Question: Hi Doctor. after a few weeks of niggling pain in back and groin/abdomen I finally passed a number of small kidney stones today. very uncomfortable sensation! I have noticed a marked reduction in the level of discomfort since I passed them. I went to my GP who saw the stones and confirmed they were kidney stones, and she prescribed Antibiotics incase of a resulting UTI.

just now, I have passed urine and it is very cloudy. no foul smell or anything, but cloudy enough for me to notice. Could this be connected
to the stones I passed earlier? Also, are Kidney stones ever indicative of an underlying conditions? thanks
