Cause #4: Kidney Stones

Kidney stones occur when there is a solid material that develops in the urinary tract. It usually occurs in the kidney and exits the body via the urine stream. While a small stone may not cause any symptoms, a stone more than 5 millimeters can result in blockage of the ureter leading to severe pain in the loin, groin, and lower back. It can also cause blood in the urine, dysuria, nausea, and vomiting.

Risk factors of kidney stones are obesity, high urine calcium levels, certain medications or foods, inadequate fluids, hyperparathyroidism, and calcium supplements.
