What’s been your experience with kidney stones?

Kidney stones can be very uncomfortable and painful regardless of what’s causing them, but did you know that there are many causes of kidney stones? Gender, ethnicity and genetics can all affect how likely a person is to experience kidney stones. Some health conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, can also increase a person's risk. Another health condition that can cause kidney stones is primary hyperoxaluria type 1, or PH1, a genetic rare disease that mainly affects the kidneys.

If you or a loved one has ever experienced (or are currently experiencing) kidney stones, we encourage you to talk to your doctor about what might be causing them.

P.S. For more information and resources about PH1 in particular, follow our #PH1 page (or make a post of your own!), or join our PH1 Support group to connect with others who understand.

Ureter surgery #Kidneystone

Worried and ureter surgery next week. Not in pain anymore and wondering if I passed the stone and didn't see it. What can I expect with recovery, stent, etc?


Can’t remember the last time I woke up without pain #ChronicPain #CheckInWithMe

I’m so tired. I’m not good with pain anyways!! My sister got a tattoo on her rib cage and said it was nbd. I’ve had several and I keep forgetting how painful they are. Back of a hip, shoulder cap, between the breasts (hurt ssooooo much) and trapeziums? #Tattoos

Now I hurt regularly other places because of the tight effin connective tissue and how I’ve been compensating for my #RangeOfMotion #RunnersKnee #ITBand I don’t run 😭😣 hurts to do anything, hurts to do nothing. The cracking and popping of joints grosses people out, but it’s one minor, brief relief for otherwise incessant pain.

Taking so many nsaids. I’ve had a #Kidneystone (Now Eating better usually 👍) this isn’t helping my #Anxiety and #Depression
