Kidney Stone (Renal Calculus); Renal Colic (Pain)
Calcium salts, struvite, uric acid or cystine may form stone/s in a kidney. If very small, stones may pass into an ureter and out of the body unnoticed; if too large to pass into an ureter, they remain in the kidney causing mild pain in the loins and/or infection; if a medium-sized stone enters the ureter, it gradually works its way down to the bladder causing severe friction and thereby pain, called renal colic. This pain is wave-like and of a stabbing nature, which starts when the stone moves and stops when the stone stops moving.
Check if most symptoms of any of these remedies match with most of your symptoms:
Berberis vulgaris 30 : For left-sided renal colic, with severe cutting pains starting from left kidney and then descending in a wave-like manner into the left ureter, the urinary bladder and the urethra. There is a bubbling, sore sensation in the kidney-region (loins). The urine is bloody, with thick, jelly-like sediment. The patient prefers to rest because jerky movements bring on or worsen pain.
Cantharis 30 : Violent, cutting or stabbing pain (in the bladder region), which shoots off in different directions. There is a constant urge to pass urine, but only a few drops pass out each time, causing such pain that the patient screams. The urine is bloody, containing thick, jelly-like mucous. Drinking coffee or cold water worsens pain but warm applications help.
Lycopodium 30 : For right-sided renal colic, with severe pain in the region of the right kidney and the right ureter, at the beginning of urination. There is no pain once the urination is over. Urine contains sand-like, red sediment. Attacks of colic usually occur from 4 to 8 p.m.
Ocimum 30 : Again for right-sided renal colic with cramps in the loins. Urine has musk-like odour and contains sand-like red sediment. Ocimum should especially be considered for stones of uric-acid salts.
Pareira brava 30 : Constant urge to urinate. Urine flows out after great straining and only when the person goes on his knees, pressing the head against the floor. There is great pain in the bladder region, which goes down into the thighs during efforts to urinate.
Sarsaparilla 30 : For right-sided renal colic, the pain shooting downwards from the right kidney (like Lycopodium). There is severe, unbearable pain at the conclusion of urination just as the urine ceases to flow (like Berberis). The urine only dribbles while sitting but passes more freely when standing. Urine contains sand-like, white sediment.
