Is it possible that kidney stones can move out of your kidney without pain?

In brief: Yes

If they don't block the kidney, then you may not notice until it's in the toilet or on the way.

In brief: Kidney stone pain

"colic" from kidney stones is only related to the degree of obstruction - the only nerve endings in the lower urinary tract are "stretch" fibers: any stone(s) not associated with obstruction will probably not cause any pain!
