"Kidney pain" ?'s: Persistent right flank pain "only in the AM" for "two years" may not be arising from a kidney. Positional elements in sleep can cause muscular pain on one side. See your primary care physician, who may order appropriate imaging studies, labs to confirm this diagnosis, or refer to a renal specialist.
