Have history of kidney stones, having sharp pain with movement in left kidney area. Reason?

Hi, My name is Lucy. I m a 23 yr old female. I have a history of kidney stones but this feels nothing like anything i ve experienced with them before. Around 10am I started having sharp pain with movement in my left kidney area. Then all of a sudden a had a major movement feeling in the same spot. At the exact moment that happened I felt like my stomach dropped to my feet . Should I go to an emergency room?

Hello Lucy ..
Thanks for your questions.

I understand your concern and It seems that you are likely to have sharp pain because of restriction or passage of calculi from kidney down ureter .
Its quite emergency to go to ER and get scanned for KUB .
Drink plenty of water
NSAIDS will not releive pain therefore its mandatory to go to ER and get treated.

Hope this information is useful.
Take Care.
