I don't think it is a wise idea to go to work when the pain often sneaks up and becomes very sharp.

Especially when most kidney stone symptoms include fever, nausea, dehydration and of course the constant throbbing pain in the lower back which I disliked to the fullest.

Make note to let the boss know that way they are aware of you condition and take it easy a little on you.Also don't forget tha…
