Can kidney stones be the cause of FUO?

For 18 months I have had FUO, severe fatigue, myalgias, and kidney stones. Currently have a 8mm stone in the Left lower pole.. is there a chance that my stones are the cause of the FUO and will removing them help? Previous stones have been calcium oxalate, brushite and calcium apatite.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Fever occurs as a result of the body's inflammatory response that can occur as a result of the stones or any other inflammatory process in the body.

Removal may help so you can see if this works of you.

I hope this helps
