    I am 28 years old and a mother of three. My youngest is two months old, and during my pregnancy I started to have pain in my lower left side. Come to find out I had kidney stones. My doctor told me that they would pass after I gave birth. Well, I'm still in pain, and now my blood pressure is very high. Is it the pain causing the high blood pressure or something else?
