Back pains related to kidney ?

I'm a 15 year old female. I'm relatively skinny. Normal height for my age. As for being healthy, I'm not perfect. I'm trying though!

Anyways, I get this pain and it comes and goes annually like a shopping sale. You know those two dimples on your lower back? My pain is basically "in" the right dimple. I often press on it and the pain eases. But it hurts every time I move! To walk, sneeze, and anything in general that requires me to move my body at the waist.

I've heard people saying it is a kidney problem.. well my father has had kidney stones over 5 times.

It usually goes away after a few hours, but this time I've had it for days.. it's unusual. Suggestions?
