Flank pain is common and often associated with stone colics. Similar pain characteristics can, however, be observed in other diseases. Stone colics have all the characteristics of visceral pain. The pain is diffuse, often referred to the body wall and accompanied by autonomic reflexes. In patients with recurrent stones, the colics may be more intense due to sensitisation of the nervous system. Furthermore, painful diseases in the reproductive organs can enhance stone colics. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the first choice for stone colics because they act by reducing the renal pelvic pressure.
