Yes: Kidney stones induce pain by causing obstruction. Even if the stone is small and but still in the kidney, it can still obstruct the flow of urine out the kidney and cause significant flank pain. The pain can also be intermittent as the stone moves around and shifts within the kidney.

Pain, blood in urine: You might have no pain, but notice some gravel in your urine. You might have blood in your urine. If you do have pain, it usually comes and goes. It can be mild or very severe, and it can occur in your back, abdomen, or even in your testicles or labia. The pain can move as the kidney stone moves. Nsaids (ibuprofen or ketorolac) are good for the pain, or morphine if it is very severe.

Yes: Pain causes stress, stress causes release of epinephrine, Epinephrine will raise your pulse. Are you sure the pain is related to your kidney problem? Stones in the kidney don't usually cause pain unless the get into the ureter and cause irritation and blockage. Just be sure the pain isn't something else!
