QL Spasm?: If all serious problems have been ruled out such as kidney stones, tumors, appendicitis, etc., likely it's either a disc or nerve injury, or commonly, sacroiliac joint inj., lower rib or vertebral dysfunction &/or quadratus lumborum or psoas muscle spasm.A good history & physical exam, including an osteopathic hands-on exam can often find such problems which can be easily correct by manipulation.
