The kidneys are bean-shaped organs that are about the size of a fist. Where they are can be found at the back of your middle flank. The kidneys' principal function is to remove waste from the body by filtering blood and producing urine, which helps the body get rid of waste more effectively.


It is possible for the kidneys to start hurting, which is a sign that something is amiss. In order to receive the appropriate treatment, you need to determine whether the discomfort is being caused by the kidneys or some other part of the body. I'd like to respond to some questions that are frequently asked about kidney stones.


1. Describe the feeling of having pain in your kidneys.


Because of your kidneys, you can feel a constant dull ache in either your right or left flank, or even in both of them (lower back). In most cases, even the slightest touch to the affected region makes the anguish significantly worse.

2. How do I recognize kidney pain?


Due to the fact that kidney pain frequently manifests in the back, many people confuse it with back discomfort. Back pain often originates in the lower back and creates chronic aches, whereas discomfort in the kidneys most likely manifests itself higher in the back, close to the ribs.


3. Is it possible that one of my kidneys is hurting?


Because the majority of kidney disorders only affect one kidney, the only side of your lower back that will normally hurt will be the one on the opposite side. On the other hand, you might feel discomfort on both sides if both of your kidneys are damaged at the same time.


4. What other signs and symptoms might you experience in addition to kidney pain?


You may also encounter the following indications and symptoms, in addition to the dull pains that you are feeling in your kidneys:


1. Urine that contains blood


2. discomfort in the urinary tract or a searing sensation


3. Continual urination


4. Having frequent bouts of sickness or sickness overall


5. What should I do if I am experiencing pain in my kidneys?


Because severe pains, if left untreated, could result in kidney failure, immediate medical assistance is required as soon as possible.
