Back pain/stones: It is possible. Drink fluids to flush ( water apple juice /grape juice/ too much Vit C could precipitate certain stones) , Consider follow up with doc as an ultrasound could tell if there is a stone,size location and if there swelling of the tube from the kidney to the bladder due to obstructinoofrom the stone
