Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

How to tell the difference between a kidney stone and lower back paIn?

Not always easy

Back
Kidney stone pain is generally unaffected by movement. Patients often bend and twist trying to get relief. Pain often radiates down into groin and may change in nature as the stone moves. Low back pain tends to be associated with an inciting event, tends to change with position and is often relieved by rest. Sometimes radiates to buttock or leg and may be felt across entire back.

I have back pain, had ct scan, they sure it was kidney stone but couldn't see it, no pain after but today I do?

Follow up

Pain
There are often residual changes in the urinary tract soon after a stone passes. However, they should normalize in a few days or weeks. If you still have back pain, that usually means there are other reasons, that you need to discuss with your Doctor.

I have kidney stone not blocking anything 9mm. Why do I have back pain and ovary pain? Had u/s & all good there too. Had X-ray and ct too.

In Kidney

Kidney
If the stone is in kidney and not ureter (would be a boulder for the ureter) stone is probably not source of pain if infection absent.

Dr. Wendy Askew answered:

nausea, dizzy, night RR trips, some sudden right&left lower back pain and right pelvic pain. Pain is 3-4/10. Does this sound like a kidney stone?

Maybe... but

Pelvic_pain_
Kidney stones usually cause more severe pain, closer to 7to 10/10. the nausea, low back pain could go with kidney stone, but possibly a kidney infection as well. Possibly appendicitis. Keep a close eye on your symptoms. Fever should prompt you to see a doctor.

On and off severe pelvic pressure and pain. Back pain as well. History of 2 kidney stones 6 months ago with surgery. Can this be another stone?

Yes

Pelvis
Blood in urine, colicky severe pain that slowly responds to increased fluids and Toradol (NSAID). would likely be another stone. Hydrate, drink, drink, drink. And not caffeine!
