I am getting severe pain with stones in kidney. Did scanning and it seems to be the problem with small stones. After medication pain goes. However pain comes once in a while and i need to take medicine to get rid of the pain. Is there any permanent cure for stone's in kidney.

If stones less than 7mm generally pass through without surgical intervention...Medical treatment of nephrolithiasis involves supportive care and administration of agents, such as the following:
Excessive water intake or IV hydration
Oral/intravenous narcotic analgesics
NSAIDS (eg, ketorolac, ketorolac intranasal, ibuprofen)
Antiemetics (eg, metoclopramide)
Antibiotics (eg, ampicillin, gentamicin, ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin) to reduce possible infections
Alkalinizing agents (eg, potassium citrate, sodium bicarbonate): For uric acid and cysteine calculi
Alpha blockers (eg, tamsulosin, terazosin)
Stones that are 7 mm and larger are unlikely to pass spontaneously and require some type of surgical procedure, such as the following:
Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy
Consult nearest urologist they will help you further
