Renal stones

I have 2, 2mm sized stones 5 cm away from my bladder. Two nights ago I had horrendous pain, frequency and vomiting, which lasted for about 7 hours. My question is, could the stone(s) have passed without me seeing them, even though I am checking for them after each visit to the loo! Also, I know they are painful when passing through the ureter, is it possible that I wouldn't feel them when they leave the urethra?

Thanks for your response. Yes I do have a follow up with a Urologist, I have not had pain since, so I am assuming I have passed at least one of the stones!

stones that small can pass through the urethra usually fine. The pain you are experiencing usually itsn't from the stone itself its usually from renal colic or hydronephrosis or swelling of the kidney/ureter. Its possible they could also be in the bladder. Do you have a follow up with urology to check progress¿
