6- Urgency to urinate a small amount
Patients with kidney stones often report urgency to urinate, and if they already suffer from incontinence, their symptoms may worsen even more if they have an overlying infection of the urinary tract. The urgency to urinate is often described as a sudden and unexpected urge to go, and sometimes patients may even experience a leak, even if they do not suffer from incontinence.
However, during urination, most patients report they are only able to urinate a very small amount. This is even more prominent in patients with known prostate enlargement. In some cases, patients report difficulty passing urine, and this is common when the kidney stones are halfway out, blocking the way. In these cases, it is very important to search for immediate medical attention.
