What is the remedy for kidney stone?

I have been diagnosed with a kidney stone yesterday at ER was told that it was just above the bladder. I have pain meds but nothing helps still painful & burning. on my 7th day originally diagnosed with UTI. How long do I wait for this to pass? I have missed so much work and still miserable. Will I just get really sick before it passes? How do I know it is ready to pass

Thanks for writing in.

You might be having a stone at the vesico ureteric junction or VUJ. This is where the ureter just enters the urinary bladder and is a frequent site of obstruction. Alpha blocker medications are best suited for a stone in the VUJ. These medications inhibit the muscle tone and enhance ureteric contraction in the ureter. As a result the stone is pushed forwards and is exited in to the lumen of urinary bladder. When this happens you might experience severe sharp pain for few days and require pain killers for sometime. Please continue drinking lots of water at that time. Since you also have UTI it is important to take a course of antibiotics after urine culture and sensitivity testing.
