In brief: Yes
Dysuria simply means that it is uncomfortable to urinate.
This can be caused by many diseases or disorders. Kidney stones are several different problems, mostly distinguished by the makeup of the stone (calculus). Since this is often an acute problem, it should be considered urgent for diagnosis and treatment.
