In brief: Common finding

The stones you have can rough up your urinary tract and result in some minor protein loss in the urine.
Some folks shed a little protein while they are upright but not if they are asleep, a benign positional loss. Your doc can decide if the amount you are losing should be assessed further with more extensive kidney studies.
