Can a kidney stone cause urgent urination with no pain?

I am male, 45 years old. I have had something going on with my urinary tract for a couple of years. The first symptom was frequent urination -- I get a sudden, strong urge in the DAYTIME ONLY, more frequently than normal (several times per day). Quantity is smaller than normal, color is clear and normal. The only other symptom at first was that there was some dribbling after urination. None at other times. After a few months of this I had a physical and prostate check up. Almost everything was normal, but my hematocrit was on the high side. Then one day I noticed burning. My physician took a urine sample and put me on antibiotics. The burning continued well after the antibiotics, then suddenly went away one day. I did not notice anything pass, and the only thing that came back from the lab was some crystals in my urine (there was no indication of infection). After this, the fruenent/urgent urination symptom went away. My doctor suspected a stone, but other than the burning, I had no pain, no tenderness, none of the usual stuff. Now, suddenly the frequent/urgent symptom is back, without pain or burning. My doctor thinks it is another small stone. But there is no pain, and I fail to understand how a small stone can cause the frequency symptom. Can there be something else going on?
