Blood may be visible in the urine because the stone has irritated the ureter. Blood in the urine, however, does not always mean a person has a kidney stone. There may be other reasons for the blood, including kidney and bladder infections, trauma, or tumors. Urinalysis with a microscope may detect blood even if it is not appreciated by the naked eye. Sometimes, if the stone causes complete obstruction, there may be no blood in the urine because it cannot get past the stone.

i dont think will not be..stomach pain....The pain is intense and comes on suddenly.It is usually located in the flank or the side of the mid back and radiates to the groin. Those affected cannot find a comfortable position, and many writhe in pain.

kidney stone cause loin pain than stomach pain. the pain is so severe it makes you to rush to ER, you may also have vomiting, sweating. not able to pass urine and also blood in urine. diagnosis is by ultrasound examination.
