In brief: No

Pain is an uncommon symptom of diminished kidney function.
Diminshed kidney function typically has no symptoms until it is rather severe and even then kidney pain is unlikely.

In brief: No

Not necessarily. Many people with disease in the kidney have no pain.
An exception is kidney stones, which may be very painful if they block the ureter.
