Kidney stones

HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is treating cases of kidney stones at Primary Health Group-Hopewell.

Kidney stones are painful, uncomfortable and difficult to manage.

Typical symptoms include back pain radiating around to the abdomen and groin, blood in the urine, nausea with vomiting.

Increase fluid intake, strain the urine to potentially catch the stone for analysis, and take pain medications

See your doctor if your pain is intolerable, fever, vomiting, or poor urine output.
