I just found out I have Kidney Stones. Has anyone heard of any connection to IBS Symptoms?

I've not heard of any precise connection, but have often wondered myself if the "diets" and remedys some of us try don't promote kidney stone formation. Now drinking a lot of water, which a lot of us do, I think helps to retard stone formation. But Vitamin C megadoses, calcium mega doses, and some other kinds of supplements and eating habits probably put the individual at greater risk of getting the stones.

Any comments from any of our more cerebral or medical friends on the board?
