Brief Answer:
it depends on the cause

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

kidney pain may be constant or intermittent depending on the cause. The most typical cause of intermittent pain is renal colic. In such cases obstruction of the urinary tract causes severe pain usually accompanied by vomiting. The pain varies in intensity and usually comes and goes. Other disorders may cause constant pain like acute pyelonephritis, cancer or injury.

I hope you find this information helpful!
