Kidneys?: Are you sure it is your kidneys? Kidneys have no internal nerves for pain and only have nerve fibers sensing stretch on the outside of the kidney. Typical kidney pain is crampy, unrelated to position or activity. It is not improved by heat or massage. It may radiate to the groin. Most people i see for "kidney pain" actually have musculoskeletal pain for a variety of reasons.
