Is my back ache coming from my kidneys or just plain lower back pain? What's the difference?

It shifts as the stone makes it way to the bladder (unless it gets stuck). Low back pain can also be crampy, but may be more diffuse. Consult your doctor or urgent care if there is blood in the urine. ...Read more
