If the pain i have in area just below the ribcage on the left side is indeed a Kidney stone, can I use a heating pad for immediate pain control?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Maybe

It will not hurt you more but may not help.
If you have a kidney stone fluids and management for pain and possible vomiting/infection may be what you need. All the best.
