Health Tip: Know the Signs of Kidney Stones
Medical news


When mineral deposits build up in the kidneys or urinary tract, they're called kidney stones. When they become lodged in these areas, they cause pain ranging from moderate to severe.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says symptoms of kidney stones may include:

Painful cramps in the side or lower back.

Pain that radiates to the abdomen or groin.
Nausea, vomiting or fever.
Blood in the urine, or cloudy urine.
Urinating more often.
