Flank pain may or may not be due to stretching of the renal capsule (the covering that forms the outside of the kidney), or to irritation of the muscle tissues surrounding the kidneys. This flank pain is usually reported as a dull ache. A very small percentage of patients seem to develop persistent, severe attacks of flank pain.
