Pain that originates due to renal issues (Stones, infection) is usually episodic , spasmodic or colicky in ‎nature, ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎originating ‎in the flank and radiating to the lower belly, inner thigh. It is ‎associated with other ‎‎‎‎symptoms like ‎‎‎‎‎nausea, vomiting ‎and systemic features due to any infection. ‎

Treatment of urinary stones usually includes pain medication and increased fluids (to drink) until the stone is ‎‎‎passed. Over the ‎‎counter pain medication (eg, ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin) may be helpful. If the pain is not controlled, ‎‎‎a stronger ‎‎medication (narcotic) may be needed ‎
