Muscle fatigue: If pain is from kidney, it will hurt regardless of time of day. You maybe experiencing some muscle strain/fatigue of the paraspinal muscles (muscles next to spine), thus feeling aching/sore when overworked/used. Since resting resolves the pain, physical conditioning/back exercises will likely help that after several weeks. If persistent, consult doc. Good luck.
