In brief: Possibly

The kidneys are just below the lower ribs on both sides.
Kidney stone pain is usually a several cramping type pain. Pain here could also be from the large back muscles on both sides. Other internal organs could be a source of pain. If severe or persistent see your primary provider or even urgent care/emergency room.

In brief: Yes it could

Extremely sharp pain that is one sided could be your kidney but it could also be your back.
See you internist to determine if a kidney specialist consult is warranted. If that is cleared and you continue see you orthopaedic spine specialist.
