Kidney stones

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

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

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

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