I'm a 26 year old female with a family history of kidney stones
In Jan 09, I experienced a dull aching pain in my side that lasted for a couple weeks and then went away.
I experienced something similar in late Feb 09 and after a week of this pain, I went to the clinic (I'm in the military). The dr couldn't find anything wrong and said I must have pulled an abdominal muscle. However, since I mentioned my dad has had over 40 stones
in his life, he sent me for an x-ray.
