Your husband is far from alone. I you read through here there is a lot of info and articles on MSK and chronic pain with no stone in the ureter and no infection shows on a standard UA ! I personally have lived with this and done extensive research on this
exact issues. I would be glad to send you via e-mails several pdf articles to help your
husband explain to his doctor what is going. I am currently working on a research paper though incomplete, i do have the information in a form for those who need it for their doctors. I know the desperateness of what your husband is feeling,,, and we want to help you. That is what this site is about. Read through the old posts, go to the healthpages on the top right, these have articles on this subject! Here is the direct link to this:
I also have some resources and article explaining about biofilm infections that many of us have...and it sounds like this maybe your husband issue with the chills etc. Biofilms are low level bacteria that set up with the calcifications in our kidneys... though they make us sick and have pain they do not show since the bacteria only slough off in low numbers and so rarely culture out! You can get to our MOARK IC
website(this is mainly to support IC patients in MO and Ark) BUT there is menu item for my MSK research.
Again pm me for my e-mail address also and I would be glad to send info to you to help you find answers as well!
