7- Increased urination
Patients with kidney stones often describe they need to go to the bathroom too much. If they have a coexisting infection, they may also complain about an urge to urinate constantly waking them up in the middle of the night. The formation of urine might be increased, but this reported symptom is often confused with urinating frequently and in small amounts. In every case, both increased urination and urgency to urinate are more common as the kidney stone is passing down the ureter. Therefore, it is considered to be a temporary symptom, and it is not sustained over time.
Sometimes, patients describe an excessive volume of urine and frequent urination. In these cases, it is important to find out whether or not there’s a change in the normal function of the kidney or any other disease or drug that’s contributing to this. However, in most cases increased urination is just another symptom of kidney stones.
