Symptoms of kidney stones

1) Pain in your flanks

Kidney stones are hard, crystallized formations of minerals, salts, and other substances that form in the kidneys and may travel through the urinary tract causing different types of pain, and one of the most common locations is in your flanks or lower back.

Flank pain is usually felt when kidney stones are still stuck in the kidneys or have not yet reached the urinary bladder. They are probably traveling down the ureters or lodged in the kidney calyx.
