Varies: Kidneys stones usually don't hurt unless they move around or go down into the ureters. When they obstruct the ureters, pain can comes and goes, usually in the flank & fluctuates in intensity. Pain may worsen with urination. Fevers & chills may occur with infection. Nausea and vomitting may happen.
