About renal colic

Back to the top

Renal colic is the medical term used to describe the pain caused by kidney stones blocking a section of the urinary tract. Kidney stones (or nephrolithiasis) are small, hard deposits of minerals and salt that form in the kidneys. Kidney stones are most commonly made of calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate. Kidney stones can cause severe pain, urinating difficulty, blockage in the ureters (the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder), and an increased risk of kidney disease. Small kidney stones may be passed through urination. Large stones may require surgery for removal.

Kidney stones can be caused by a wide range of risk factors and health conditions.

Factors that may put you at risk of kidney stones include:

  • Obesity
  • Family history of kidney stones
  • Low fluid intake (not drinking enough water may concentrate urine in the bladder, leading to kidney stones)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diet (diets high in salt and animal protein can raise levels of sodium and acid in the urine, leading to stone formation)
  • Bowel conditions (Crohn's disease and IBS can increase the risk of calcium stone formation in the kidneys)

Renal colic produces symptoms of intense pain on the side of the body - between the hip and rib - and in the abdomen. This pain may also spread to the lower back and groin.

Along with these symptoms, urinary stones produces symptoms such as:

  • A persistent need to pee,
  • Pain during urination,
  • Bloody or cloudy urine
  • Cramping in the back, stomach, or side
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • Low flow of urine (small amount of urine during urination)
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever

These symptoms are also common with a urinary tract infection (UTI). Both kidney stones and UTIs can be dangerous if left untreated, so if you are experiencing the symptoms listed above you should get in touch with a doctor right away. Kidney stones can lead to serious kidney damage and blood poisoning if they are allowed to remain in the urinary system.
