Kidney stones please help

Ive had many kidney stones but this one seems different. I got that familiar pain in my back sat and knew instantly what it was and decided to not go to ER. By mon I decided I could take no more and went. Dr. Said I have multiple stones and I had one passing right now. Well in the past the pain is excruciating then goes away once it reaches my bladder,not this time I have been in the same excruciating pain since sat only to have relief if constantly popping the pain meds ( over the recommended 1 every 6hrs. I have told the er dr that something is wrong and it's not moving but they keep saying oh its passing. To me it feels stuck my pain has gotten worse and it is making my stomach hurt too also getting harder to move around unless I have 4 pain pills in. What is going on? Has anyone else had this experience?
