Hi, many thanks for using HCM!

You should do- USG KUB (look for if there is any hydronephrosis/hydroureter),
RFT, Sr. uric acid, Urine (R & M).
Drink that amount of water so that 2 litres of urine is voided in 24 hrs.
Till then take antispasmodics, analgesics, antacids with your doctor's opinion.

You haven't mentioned your age, size of the stone..
also do blood sugar level to look for DM.
Wish you a healthy life.
With warm regards.

Nephrologist Dr. Deepak Sharma's  Response
You are having kidney stones on one side but are ahving pain on other side in the back.The cause of this pain does not appear to be originating from kidneys.
Continue to maintain 3-3.5 litres of liquid intake.
Ensure that you get rid of constipation if you have it.
All these measures are likely to help you be free of symptoms
