In brief: Hard to say

Kidney stone are usually very painful.
Stones, gallstones and kidneys infections can all cause this kind of pain. See your doctor and get checked out.

In brief: Right side back pain

This syndrome could be either muscular or renal or gall bladder; gall bladder discomfort associates with fatty meals and can come and go; stone pain usually radiates down flank; if your flank is tender to superficial touch, then a muscle may be traumatized or strained.
Of course, ultrasound can evaluate GB and Kidney
