2) Pain in the lower abdomen
Pain in the lower abdomen is a symptom of kidney stones, but it can also be a symptom of a urinary infection in your bladder. The pain associated with kidney stones can be severe and range from a dull ache to more intense pain that can start in the lower back and radiate to the abdomen.
The pain is usually accompanied by nausea and vomiting, as well as other symptoms such as changes in urine color, blood in the urine, and a frequent urge to urinate. When pain is located in the lower abdomen, it probably means that the kidney stones are traveling down the urinary bladder or already in this structure. It may also be triggered by a secondary urinary bladder infection due to kidney stones.
