Abdominal pain: Abdominal pain can be tricky. It can be kidney stones or constipation or other conditions .Severe pain needs to be evaluated by your pcp or urgent care.

Pain syndrome: Your pain pattern is not typical of kidney stones. Kidney stone pain is typically flank and not mid back nor mid abdomen. This appears to be something else - like intestinal pain, intestinal colic, and/or muscle spasms in your back. What triggers pain? What relieves pain? When does pain appear? What work up have you had?
