Are You Suffering From Severe Back Pain or  Burning Sensation During Urination???

It is may be of kidney stone or due to other urology infection. Kidney stones (or calculi) are hard stones that can form in one or both of your kidneys. They can cause severe pain, known as renal colic. Kidney stones are common – five to 10 in 100 people are affected by pain associated with kidney stones at some point in their life. Most people who get kidney stones for the first time are aged between 20 and 50. Most kidney stones (about four out of five) are made up of calcium salts (calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate, or both). They can also be made up of other substances,including uric acid, cystine and struvite. They can range in size and may be smooth or jagged in texture.

Many kidney stones are too small to cause symptoms. But if a kidney stone causes a blockage or moves into your ureter, it may cause symptoms, such as: 
  • severe pain or ache on one or both sides of your back
  • sudden spasms of excruciating pain – this usually starts in the back below your ribs, radiating around your abdomen, and sometimes to your groin and genitals
  • blood in your urine
  • feeling sick or vomiting
  • needing to urinate often, or feeling a burning sensation during urination 
Men are more likely to get kidney stones than women. About half of people who have had a kidney stone go on to get more within 10 years. In most people, there is no obvious reason for what causes kidney stones, although you may be more likely to get them if you:
  • have a family history of kidney stones
  • are aged between 30 and 50
  • are taking certain medicines – for example, protease inhibitors (such as indinavir) and certain diuretics (such as triamterene)
  • are taking too many vitamin C or calcium/vitamin D supplements, or antacids
  • have a condition affecting the shape or structure of your kidney
  • have a lot of salt or protein in your diet
  • don't drink enough fluids
  • have certain conditions, such as hyperparathyroidism, high blood pressure or Crohn’s disease
  • have cystitis – the bacteria that cause this infection can break down the a substance found in urine called urea, which can lead to kidney stones.
Treatment of kidney stones
If your kidney stone is less than 10mm (1cm) and doesn’t need to be removed immediately, your urologist may offer medicines called alpha-blockers to help the stone pass out in your urine. This is called medical expulsive therapy (MET).
