Kidney stones

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we discuss a medical issue that plagues many adults.

Dr. John Clay is on the case of kidney stones.

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 have pain medications.

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