Sometimes, when motility is acute affected it can take time for things to normalize.

How soon does the pain begin when you have a kidney stone stuck somewhere?

Depends: Kidney stones can form anywhere in the urinary outflow tract.

X-ray or CT scan: Stones are of different chemical composition. Whether a stone can be seen on a plain x-ray of the abdomen depends on the size of the stone as well as it's composition. A ct scan without IV contrast is more sensitive for smaller or less dense stones. Even a large stone in the kidney that has not moved into the tube that drains the kidney (known as the ureter) usually does not cause pain.
