Muscle pain?: Pain in back muscles is more common reason for this complaint than actual kidney pain. But kidney stone possibility cannot be ruled out. Also, could be related to kidney infection esp if you have signs of of UTI e.g. Burning, frequency, or foul odor with urination. A visit to your doc will help differentiate this.

Colic or flank pain: Kidney pain can occur as a result of stones or infection. People who have kidney stones report colicky pain that comes & goes during which it's impossible to get comfortable. Pain can range from affected back down flank & around to groin area. Kidney infection is typically localized to affected back at 'costovertebral angle" where ribs meet spine. Muscles don't hurt but tapping gently elicits pain.
