? Kidney Stone: Side or flank pain may be from a kidney stone. Typically pain may move from the back toward the front and toward the groin. The pain may also cause nausea or vomiting. You may or may not have blood in urine.
See your doctor and explain your symptoms in detail. They may check your urine for blood or get a ct scan. But there are lots of other causes for pain, so you need to see your doctor.
