I am no doctor or expert in anyway, but what I sure am, is a kidney stone sufferer.
I recall the first stone I got, a long time ago, back in my twenties.
A sudden and excruciating pain striking around the kidney area, making me roll onto the floor not knowing which position to take in order to alleviate the pain.
I was rushed to the hospital where I was kept under observation for three to four days. I was given heavy doses of a painkilling injection, as there was no other remedy available.
Eventually, the tiny stone traveled through the urinary tract and was finally ejected. What a relief!
On leaving the hospital, the doctor warned me that this is, most of the time, a recurring condition.
Knowing that this could happen again, I was determined to investigate further into the matter.
