There is no evidence of stones per se and you are refusing narcotics by mouth and asking for IV medication. He really doesn't know you and your history and what you are presenting when you come to the ER and ask for IV pain meds, isn't good. What I would do if you have another attack is call the urologist's office. If he wants you to go to the ER for pain relief, then he needs to call the ER and let them know you are coming and for what reason.
My only issue with that is I was judged at ER visit #2 before he even saw my labs, my urine results, or my U/S. The doc from last night was there at #2 and acted the exact same way. But that time I had an advocate and needed oxygen because I was hyperventilating and holding my breath so much due to the pain. He had me judged before he even talked to me (tone indicated as such)
