Is there a link between kidney stones and Crohn's? about
15-20 years ago I had gone into the ER because of a sharp pain in my back. They said I probably had a kidney stone. Never had the pain again and I don't think I ever passed it. During my Cat-scan a few months ago, they found kidney stone(s). Both my GI and primary doctor told me to have it checked out. I wasn't in any rush because of Christmas and have scheduled an appointment for tomorrow. I was just curious why they were so adament about
me going to have it checked out if I don't have any problems with it.
