Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety...If stones less than 7mm generally pass through spontaneously without surgical intervention...I would suggest you to take plenty of fluids orally and over the counter analgesics for pain relief and antibiotics like levofloxacin for 5 days...if no improvements consult nearest urologist they will help you further.
