Relationship between carbonated water and kidney stones

I have found conflicting information regarding the effects of carbonated water and a possible link to kidney stones. I have been drinking carbonated water through a sodastream device where I make it myself for about 7 years and have recently developed kidney stones. I have passed about 5 kidney stones in the last 6 months, and frankly I am tired of it. I am finding conflicting info on the internet regarding this and really would like to find some articles regarding this, written by medical professionals. The problem is that if water is not carbonated I really don't like it, and it upsets my stomach, so if I don't have to stop drinking carbonated water, I'd rather not. I'm afraid it will be very difficult for me to drink the recommended amount of water every day unless it is carbonated.

Many stones are calcium oxalate, not calcium carbonate.  Have you had your stone analyzed?
