Understanding Kidney Stones Causes and Symptoms | All You Need to Know!

5) Pain when trying to urinate

Another common type of pain in patients with kidney stones is a burning sensation when trying to pass urine. This type of pain is triggered by abrasions caused by kidney stones in the internal lining of the urethra and other urinary tract structures. These abrasions undergo inflammation, mainly if the patient also develops an infection in the urinary tract.

Thus, when we are trying to void, even if a stone is not moving through, the urine flow against the irritated internal lining of the urinary tract causes significant pain. But we can also have a kidney stone already exiting the body through the urethra, in which case the pain will be even more intense while urinating.
