Kidneys?: The region you describe is the left kidney. If were a kidney stone you would likely have commented on a very intense pain. Fever and feeling sick would be aroused by kidney infection. Again the pain can be severe and induce an er visit. You probably have a back muscle strain and spasm.

More info needed....: Your one symptom (pain) can be caused by so many things, it is next to impossible to diagnose without more info. Could be gas, could be a kidney stone, could be blockage. The internet does not replace your local physician.. Please call for an appointment and a full examination.

Waist pain: hmmm. hard to say. not sure what "wind" pain means. if it's over lower left abdomen, it could be diverticulitis. if it's front of hip it could be hip flexor tendonitis. if there is rash it could be shingles. these are but a few of hundreds of possibilities.
