Just another theory, some forms of depression can heighten the pain senses. Are you on any anti-depressants? Some can help with these symptoms maybe talk to your ob or pcp about this and what is safe during pregnancy. At this point the ER isn't able to do much to help you and I really don't think it's for lack of wanting, I think you are running the risk of affecting your baby from all these meds.
Kidney stone pain is on another realm. Someone would be depressed from the pain not in pain because of depression when it is kidney stones. I know I couldn't function at all when I had an attack and did need the IV pain meds and it wasn't because I was depressed. It had nothing to do with that. I even had unmedicated births and found those MUCH less painful then kidney stone attacks. Anti depressants have risks too and they don't help the pain of kidney stones.
