Had a herniated disk, urine test showed RBC, painful on lower thoracic area. Do I have kidney stones?

I had a blood test review for my thyroid last week. The doctor kept looking back at my urine test RBC 8 and kept coming back and asking if I had Kidney stones . I would tell him no but he asked me as if he was expected me to change my mind and say yes. Today I m on my back because I herniated a disc which is not uncommon for me in the L4& L5 area. However this pain is different. It is in the lower thoracic area and the diaphram. Looking on the computer I see that there is a possibility that it may be the kidneys. I will have it looked at on Monday unless you think I should go right away. Thanks, Lynn -female age 55 It s not the gal bladder as I had it removed already.

Welcome to HCM,.
To me, the pain does not seems to arise from the kidneys.
Nevertheless, any pain if severe needs to be treated urgently.
If there is no severe pain and if the bladder and bowels are ok, You may wait till Monday.
Best regards,
