Urinary lithiasis may have no symptoms. However, if it is symptomatic, the most frequent way it presents is through renal colic, and indeed, the most frequent cause of this symptom is urinary lithiasis (90%).
The main symptoms are:
Colicky lumbar pain (with peaks and troughs of intensity) that can radiate to the front of the abdomen and even reach the genital area (vulva and penis).
Nausea and vomiting.
Irritative urination when urinary tract obstruction occurs at the end of the ureter, like in cystitis.
If feveroccurs, this is a warning of possible associated septic shock.
