How is kidney stone detected and what are the initial symptoms of kidney stone?. Do we need to go for Ultra sound, Xray, CT scan blood test and urine test to conform the stone or any one of the above can be used to confirm the stone?

there is no symptom of kidney stone unless until it starts travelling down to urinary bladder or becomes too heavy in the Kidney itself. the early symptoms can include a severe pain in abdomen (depends which side the stone is) which resonates to Back. Lower back pain, vomiting includes other symptoms. If there is infection that you may have fever, cold chills and vomiting. It can be confirmed via urine test which may have RBC in the blood which indicates infection in the urinary system.


The stone can be detected via ultrasound in most of the cases as the Xray is not a full proof way to detect the stone. CT Scan anyway is the most accurate of the above but you don't need it unless until there is nothing detected via Ultra sound.


If the stone is small like less than 6mm there is high chance that you may not need operation but as the stone grow in size a operation may be needed depending on the size. there are several Auyervedic as well as desi medicine available so exhaust your option in alternate medicine before deciding on the operation.
