OK, first off stones start off in the kidneys, most are formed from oxalate, not from a urinary infection. Now, kidney stones can make you feel like you have in infection, or may indeed cause an infection in the area (ureter) they are, if they are in the ureter, that is one of two tubes that come from the kidneys, one tube for each kidney about 6m or so in diameter, in females they are about 50-70mm long each one empties urine in the bladder and then pass through the larger diameter urethra.
most stones that are 3mm or less pass easily, but some some can be very painful and cause you to feel the constant urge to pee or even diarrhea. Best to see you're Dr or if you are in that much pain or worried to where you are losing sleep go to the ER at the hospital.

Get It but ,Usually, an imaging test and an analysis of urine are done to diagnose stones. Tiny stones may cause no symptoms, but larger stones can cause pain in the area between the ribs and hips in the back. Sometimes stone formation can be prevented by changing the diet or increasing fluid intake.so infar take we can't say that urine infection can be cause of kidney stone however it may be possible that urine can be causes of kidney disease bt not kidney stones

UTI may be cause of Bladder cancer but not manually kidney stones . A history of urinary tract infection significantly elevated the risk of bladder cancer, particularly in individuals who reported three or more infections .

Bacteria are the most common cause of UTIs. Normally, bacteria that enter the urinary tract are rapidly removed by the body before they cause symptoms. However, sometimes bacteria overcome the body’s natural defenses and cause infection.
