    you can be like Kramer from Sienfeld and go to the circus. I also heard to move around of course how can you sit still with all that pain.

    how about walking yourself down to your doctor or phone and ask what they think?

    Nope, keep still. Any physical activity with kidney stones is dangereous.

    With a kidney stone you can do light exercise such as walking or slow jogging but it is important to not strain yourself or be as energetic as usual because you wouldn’t want to make it any more painful than it already is.

    You have to see the doctor. But I guess you did that already, because you *KNOW* your have kidney stones, right? If you don’t, go see the doctor. If you are waiting for treatment, just relax, and don’t hop around much.

    Get well! 🙂

    I don’t think it really makes a difference, ur gonna have pain either way. Just stick to your normal things.

    good luck with it

    I don’t think it actually matters as far as helping/harming the situation… But some people do find movement to help the pain. When I had a kidney stone, I had to stay still for the most part, but I couldn’t lay straight – I spent most of my time curled forward, sitting on my legs. It did kind of help to rock a little bit. Wow, that sounds pitiful… Haha.. good luck – kidney stones aren’t fun 🙁

    You definitely want to move around. Walking and light jogging – even jumping up and down – can help to shake a stubborn stone loose. You wouldn’t want to “work out” because this can cause dehydration (although kidney stones are so painful, I can’t imagine you wanting to work out!). My family and I are sufferers of chronic kidney stones. This sounds totally crazy but when I feel the first pains of a stone, I take ibuprofen immediately (to help with inflammation) and chug a beer or two (yes, beer!). I then take a very light jog for a few minutes and then drink as much water as my stomach can handle. This has helped me numerous times with small stones.
