What causes kidney stones?
Waste products in the blood can occasionally form crystals that collect inside the kidneys.

Over time, the crystals may build up to form a hard stone-like lump.

This is more likely to happen if you:

do not drink enough fluids

are taking some types of medication

have a medical condition that raises the levels of certain substances in your urine

Yeah what Surnia said and if you keep getting recurrent kidney stones then you mostly likely are someone who:
eat a high-protein, low-fibre diet
are inactive or bed-bound
have a family history of kidney stones
have had several kidney or urinary infections
have had a kidney stone before, particularly if it was before they were 25 years old


Also the medicine's that Surnia was talking about were:
aspirin
antacids
diuretics (used to reduce fluid build-up)
certain antibiotics
certain antiretroviral medicines (used to treat HIV)
certain anti-epileptic medicines

and some other, but the above are the common ones
