They roll, sort of, but they are not the band. They are the ones that form up in your kidney or gall bladder and can wreak havoc on you. For me it is the kidney variety made of calcium oxalate. I suffered my first attack about 18 years ago and it was not pretty. The kids were small and got to see their big old dad roll around on the floor and cry and beat his fists in pain. Having been a Naturopathic Physician, I remembered that I had saved some articles from the 1950′s out of Harvard on treating them with Magnesium and Vitamin B6. So the journey began and it worked very well. I get a bottle of tablets from Solgar that contain those two ingredients alone and take two a day. Over the years I have experienced an occasional twang in the back and flank, pressure in my testicles, and rarely blood in the urine, all signs of a stone making its way down the ureter and into the bladder. Nothing extreme however until just 2009 when I suffered another severe stone. The only good thing about these stones is the treatment: morphine, intravenous. The first time I got the stuff my pulse dropped to forty something and the nurses at the hospital gave Anne quite a fright, dragging out the heart monitor and treating me as if I was approaching cardiac arrest. The morphine and its little sister hydrocodone relax the smooth muscle tissue and allow the stone to pass out without causing the pain causing stretch of the muscle in the ureter. Wonder drugs to be sure. So, kidney stones can be controlled with a simple magnesium and vitamin B6 supplement at pennies a day. Take my word for it, I’ve BTDT.
