Pain on the left side between ribs, hip & back

Hi I have been having left side pain on & off for about one year..its a stabbing pain between my ribs hip & my back it only last seconds but its bad enough to bend me down & takes my breath away... but about a month ago or so the pain got constant like a burning sensation & the stabbing pain I still get about 2-3 times a day it just depends the stabbing pain only last 2-3 seconds...So I went to Urgent care & they said I had blood & white cells in my urine. They gave me pain killers & antibiotics for 7 days..but the pain pain killers ibuprofen 800 mgs didn't help so I went to my pcp 6 days later & he admitted me to hospital thinking it was kidney stones, since I had also had chills, nausea, and a bit of a fever....They gave me antibiotics for 2 days at the hospital and morphine for pain. I also I got a CT scan without contrast @ hospital & it came back negative so I was released. I went back to my pcp the next day which the pain wasn't as severe anymore, he sent me to get a vaginal & regular ultrasound to make sure it wasn't ovaries cysts or anything like that. he gave me oxycodone & sent me to an urologist & I have the apt in 11 days but the pain comes & goes & Im tired of taking pain killers. What can this b? The pain sometimes gets worse by sitting..Im 32 female & exercise 5-6 times a day, I eat healthy & drink lots of water... but with this I haven't been able too exercise =(

Hi!
Since there are no kidney stones, the other possibility is pinched spinal nerves and colitis. IBS, Crohn’s and diverticulitis are the other possibilities. Maybe you should see a gastroenterologist and a neurologist. If you have had any previous surgeries then adhesions is another possibility. Hope this helps. Take care!
