Have had Kidney Stones problem. On medication. Pain in lower back. Sprained?

Hi, I have had Kidney Stones problem about 6 months back, I was given medication and the pain reduced & was discharged. The doctor advised me Lasilactone and Urimax .4 to continue for a while and asked me to take lots of fluids. I have done the medication. From yesterday I am having a mild pain in lower left back and I am not able to understand if it is a sprain or due to stones. Could you please help me how to distinguish

Thanks for the query.
Pain due to kidney stones is usually colicky (i.e severe pain in episodic bursts).
It is present in the loin and may shoot down into the groin.It may be associated with blood in urine. On the other hand pain due to muscle sprain is constant, and worsens on movement.
It is difficult to ascertain the cause accurately without physical examination.
So I suggest that you see your doctor if the discomfort persists.
Hope this helps
Good luck

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Last time when you had stones problem, after taking medication, you should have had scan to confirm weather stones have been expelled out or not.
You can get ultrasound abdomen.
If pain is due to muscle sprain, you can take muscle relaxant like chlozoxazone along with pain killer.
Take lot of fluid and citrus juice.
Hope I answered your question. Consult your doctor for further examination and management.
Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.

Dr. Vidya
