In brief: See a Doc

If the pain is not going away or getting worse you should see your doctor for an evaluation which would include a physical examination.
Most of the time these things tend to go away on their own but if they don't it could signify a more serious problem and should be checked out by your doctor.

In brief: Must rule out kidney

Have your primary md be sure you do have have a kidney problem. Otherwise heat, rest, no lifting or rotation and make sure you recheck in with primary md.
