Is it normal to have a severe headache and leg pain with kidney stones?

No, it's not: Kidney stone can occasionally cause some pain down the front of the leg, but not headache, unless you regularly suffer from migraines or other headaches. The stress of having pain due to a kidney stone can trigger a migraine in a susceptible person. Pain drugs given for kidney stone can also sometimes cause headaches.

Normal?: No it is not normal to have headaches from kidney stones. Have the stones been removed? If so you should see your doctor about headaches etc.
