Right flank pain and pain in right groin and back. Variable chest pain (non cardiac) as well. Is this more likely from gall bladder or kidney stone?

Both. Get blood work and urinalysis. An abnormal parathyoid could lead to both.

Pain due to gallbladder disease (e.g.Stones), is located in the right upper quadrant/epigastric area and the onset usually follows a fatty/greasy meal (pain is constant and goes away in a couple of hours).
