Flank pain: I would think it highly unusual that kidney stones would become symptomatic simultaneously on both sides. In addition you would know what kidney stone pain is like. Your symptoms are probably musculoskeletal, related to the vertebrae or lumbar muscles. Three weeks is a long time to suffer and it's time to be examined by a physician for diagnosis and treatment. Xrays and/or referral to a specialist
