Kidney Stones Symptoms

Initially, a person who is suffering from kidney stones will not experience any severe symptoms of the disease.

These stones are hard masses of substances, which may include the foreign substances, as well as those from the body itself as dead tissues.

Until the size of these stones is small, they do not create any problems. However, if they grow in size and start blocking the passage of the substances through the kidneys. Therefore kidney stones give rise to some problems, which may be either simple or they can be very serious too.

However, in the initial stages the kidney stones do not show any symptoms. On the other hand, the symptoms may be very mild or only one of them may occur. If just one of the kidney stones symptoms appears, the people do not take it too seriously. Some other reasons are accounted for it. However, when some of the other symptoms too, start appearing then the people become aware of that something is wrong with them.
