In brief: Definitely
Kidney stone pain may come and go but typically does not.
Abnormalities in the abdomen may have what's called "referred pain, " so gallbladder, bowel, female organs, and even appendix related inflammation or infection may radiate so that the pain is not localized. This should be evaluated by a health care provider.

In brief: Consider this
Sometimes it may take a ct scan with renal stone protocol to identify the stone.
Consider constipation as well which sometimes the cramping pain that comes and goes intestinal rather than renal.
