No. I heard that it is quite painful. However, I read that consuming too much carbohydrate-rich food and beverages, such as those containing a lot of sugar, has been shown to have a bearing on the formation of kidney stones. The same is true of eating many dairy products. And that it appears that people in hot and humid climates who do not drink sufficient water to compensate for their profuse sweating are more likely to have kidney stones than those living in moderate climates. So one of the simplest and most effective preventatives is for one to drink a lot of water. In fact, when suffering from a kidney stone attack, the first thing to do is to drink plenty of water. 

That, together with rest and the use of pain killers, will often bring relief. But in extreme cases, when a ureter becomes blocked by a stone, surgery may be necessary.

I'm the King of Kidney Stones. Ever since DRs gave me Lipitor in 2005, I have dealt with hundreds of those damn things in every which way one can think of. I've had two at once, huge ones and little ones, but only have had 3 surgically removed and now they pass thru without much notice. 

I've seen just about every ER in west Central Florida over the past several years because of these damn things.  I have urich acid ones on my left and calcium on my right side and take Allupurinol now to control these damn things. My worst experience with one was right after I had my construction accident over 5 years ago where I broke my back and everything was so swollen inside and here come a huge stone pressing against my broken back and since everything was so swollen, Drs couldn't get thru to remove it. That was pain beyond belief and above any number scale.  

I wouldn't wish these things on my worst enemy
