My 20 year old son was diagnosed with multiple kidney stones bilaterally (in both kidneys) over 5 years ago. Since then, he has not had a day without some sort of "kidney" pain. The pain is flank pain, located on both sides, and radiates to the front. The pain is much different than when passing a stone, more of a dull ache which gets worse when he eats lots of carbohydrates, sugar or caffeine. The pain gets better, but does not go away, when he drinks lots of water. Kidney specialists are puzzled by this dull pain and state this is not typical for one to experience pain when not passing a stone. He has had multiple CT scans, KUBs, and will be having a renal scan soon. Is there anyone with any idea of what could be happening? please help my son
