In brief: Could br kidney

Usually pain related to the kidneys is on the sides and travels to the belly if it is caused by a stone.
If you have fever or burning on urinating you may also have a urine infection and then you will need cultures and antibiotics. If pain is related to movement it is most likely muscular or due to bones.
