Does kidney pain go away on its own?

I just got random kidney pain right now, constant dull ache on lower left side of back, a lot of discomfort though overall not the worst pain I've had. It is the first time I experienced kidney pain though. Took paracetamol after an hour and it's calming down now. I hadn't been drinking much lately until just now. If I keep myself hydrated will it likely go away? Or does all kidney pain need treatment. Nothing's wrong with my pee.

    Please talk about those symptoms with your doctor.

    Your kidneys are high up your back under the rib cage, not lower back. So doubt it’s kidneys. But could be a number of other things, some less likely than others.
