Nephrologist (Kidney Specialist) Questions Kidney Stones

Can kidney stone be the cause of my back pain?

I have been suffering from severe back pain that shoots towards my right side of the back. Someone suggested that I should undergo a CT scan to see if it is because of a kidney stone. Could this be possible that my back pain is because of a kidney stone? What are some other signs and symptoms I should look out for?
