Renal colic : The pain of a renal colic can be excruciating. You may experience pain on the opposite side if there is an associated kidney infection as well which is common with kidney stones. There is also a possibility of another tiny stone passing through the right side but it was not picked up on a kidney scan. If the pain gets worse at any stage you will need to visit your nearest urgent care clinic
