Kidney stones occur when minerals and salts from your body collect in your kidneys, forming solid, pebble-like crystals. While kidney stones have many causes, they typically don’t have long-term effects on your body.
You may have a kidney stone if you have symptoms like:
- Changes in urination
- Foul-smelling urine
- Pain in your side and lower back
- Pain when you urinate
- Pink, red, or brown urine
