Suggest treatment for kidney stones

My husband is suffering from Kidney stones which started about 2 days ago. He has been drinking lots of water with lemon but nothing is helping. This morning he threw up and is having hot and cold spells. Should I take him to the hospital? or do you have some suggestions for me?

Good day and thank you for being with healthcare magic!! I am very sorry to hear that your husband is suffering from acute kidney stone attack.

If he has fever, intractable pain and intractable vomiting then it is time to rush him to the emergency room.

Spontaneous passage of stones depends on stone size and as a general rule if it is smaller than 0.5 mm it has a 80-90% chance of passage.

Let him drink plenty of fluids around 2-3 liters. Pain medications will surely help (any NSAIDS) during this very painful episodes.
