The pain these stones cause can lead to extreme nausea and fatigue. Doctors can only do so much and pain killers are not everyone’s forte. There are many solutions recommended to those with this problem but only a select few do any good for relieving pain in the kidney.
What causes kidney stones?
Kidney stones form when excess minerals are not excreted from the kidneys and begin to form into a stone. Most stones are very small and can pass on its own while others are so big that a surgical procedure may need to be done. Some habits that lead to these stones are:
- Not drinking enough water
- Not getting enough calcium and magnesium
- Eating an unhealthy diet
Why do kidney stones hurt so much?
When bladder stones become solid enough to cause blockage within the kidneys extreme pain is felt. No matter how big or small the pain is it will hurt. The body uses the kidneys to filter any toxins through the urine when there is a blockage within the kidneys toxins are blocked from leaving the body.
How do I relieve my bladder stone pain?
Most stones 6mm – 8mm can be passed within 3 to 4 days. Stones 8mm and up may need hospital kidney stone treatment. When dealing with any kidney problem its always best to drink as much water as possible. Water will flush the kidneys and is the main substance to pass the stone. The more water that is consumed the faster the stone will pass and the pain will instantly decrease.
One of the best instant home remedies for kidney stone pain is to consume 1-2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar everyday until the pain decreases. Apple Cider Vinegar is good for breaking the minerals up so it is easier to pass as well as removing the toxins left over.
It can take anywhere from 5 to 10 days before the kidneys are flushed from any toxins and pain free. This will depend on the amount of water your body is consuming.
A good tip is to use a hot wash cloth and place it on the lower back area where the pain is present. This has helped for me personally and I couldn’t of imagined going through the pain without it.
Besides the prescribed pain meds from the doctor it is advised to take 3 tablets of Vitamin B as well as 300mg of fish oil.
