You have had a pretty comprehensive evaluation.  The negative ultrasounds would make a gynecological etiology less likely.  

It is possible that the calcium deposits in the kidney can be causing the discomfort.  There would be no specific treatment for this, aside from hydration as you are doing.  

A musculoskeletal cause is also possible.  If this continues to be suspected, a physical therapy referral can be consider for further evaluation and treatment.

You can discuss these options with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
