Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Kidney stones if very small may not cause any symptoms. If they are big and causing obstruction, the you might have severe pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, blood in urine, increased frequency of urination, burning or painful urination, fever, chills etc. Visit your doctor/healthcare provider at the earliest if you are having these symptoms or if you suspect to have kidney stone.

Take care.
