How do you know if you have a kidney stone?

I don’t drink water, just other stuff like Gatorade and Propel tea and juice and all that. But how can you tell if you have one??

    Colicky pain: "loin to groin". Often described as "the worst pain ever experienced".
    Hematuria: blood in the urine, due to minor damage to inside wall of kidney, ureter and/or urethra.
    Pyuria: pus (white blood cells) in the urine.
    Dysuria: burning on urination when passing stones (rare). More typical of infection.
    Oliguria: reduced urinary volume caused by obstruction of the bladder or urethra by stone, or extremely rarely, simultaneous obstruction of both ureters by a stone.
    Abdominal distension.
    Nausea/vomiting: embryological link with intestine – stimulates the vomiting center.
    Fever and chills.
    Hydronephrosis
    Postrenal azotemia: when kidney stone blocks ureter
    frequency in micturation: Defined as an increase in number of voids per day (>than 5 times), but not an increase of total urine output per day (2500 ml). That would be called polyuria.
    loss of appetite
    loss of weight

    You will know if you have a kidney stone. It is some of the worst pain I have ever been in.

    To be sure, you would need a CT scan.
    You can have stones and be symptom-free until they are large enough to get stuck in your ureters, then the pain is extremely severe.
    Why not just start drinking water?
    Save yourself the trouble.
