It could definitely be your kidney's if the location of your pain is on the left flank. This pain may move towards your groin. You should see a primary doctor who can test you with a renal ultrasound to look for kidney stones, and with a urine analysis laboratory test to look for blood in the urine (suggestive of a stone) or a due musculo-skeletal reasons such as ribcage inflammation or muscle spasms. In that case. maintaining a proper posture and applying diclofenac ointment will help
