History of kidney stone. Urge to urinate now. Reason?

I ve had a kidney stone back in Dec 2012, and I already passed the stone. When I was passing the stone I kepted feeling like I had to pee. Now at times I still have that feeling and I don t know why. I work in a hospital and talked to some of the nurses and they said maybe UTI but its not because I drink plenty of water and juice. Why do I feel that way? I don t have any pain.

Thank you for using health care Magic

The first step in evaluating your problem would be a urinalysis. If the urinalysis is indicative of infection, then the urinary tract infection is likely causing your symptoms. If a UTI is identified, reevaluate after treatment. If no UTI is identified and the urine is positive for microscopic hematuria [positive for small amounts of RBCs/blood), you may need to be evaluated for recurrent kidney stone. People who have had a kidney stone have a 50% or greater chance of recurrence. If your original imaging studies showed multiple stones and you passed only one, it is possible that you may be passing another. If the urinalysis is entirely clear then consider other causes such as overactive bladder

Take care and be well
