Was a CT scan performed? This would be fairly standard for a suspected kidney stone.

It is unclear as to the best specialist to see. There are abnormalities that could be evaluated by a urologist as well as others by a gastroenterologist. The GI doc would probably be the best next step.

Had my ct scan done this is results.. Ct scan of abd & pelvis w/ intravenous no ionic contrast n oral contrast.. Left n right lobes of liver,spleen,pancreas, distal common bile duct, aorta n inferior vena cava are normal. No dilatation of the intrahepatic biliary tree noted, both adrenals n kidneys are well seen, no hydro nephrotic or hydroureter noted. The urinary bladder, ureterovesical junction are normal . The aorta and inferior vena cava are normal. A few mm sized para-aortic n mesenteric lymph nodes are thought to be inflammatory in nature. A tiny umbilical hernia with the presence of omental fat noted.  The uterus is bulky in contour. The presence of cyst in the right ovary measuring 3.3*2.8cm in size noted. No left ad exam mass seen. The rectum n sigmoid colon are unremarkable. The remaining colon is not opacified and is grossly unremarkable. The small bowel showed no obstructive pattern. Bone windows are normal. Both lungs are normal....                                                     So what is a few mm sized para-aortic and meds enteric lymph nodes thought to be inflammatory in nature. Means

Inflammation of any type can cause lymphadenopathy so likely mean nothing. Have you done a pregnancy test? Is the pain associated with your menstrual period?

For years my mom would complain about the same pain. We saw many doctors and visited many er's that would prescribe nexium and tell her it's all in her head. Finally she was tested for hepatitis c and wham we had found the cause. She underwent 6 months of treatment and is now cured. I just don't understand why none of her doctors ever checked for hep c.  She spent a good part of a decade wasting away and complaining about these same symptoms until we took here to a kiensiologist who asked for the blood tests that found hep c. Don't stop searching because it is something right under your nose causing this.
