Kidney stone: This could possibly still be a kidney stone that has not been picked up by the testing. Also a differential is problems with the uterus or kidney infection. I would recommend you see a urologist or a urogynechologist.

Not uncommon : You may still have kidney stone disease. Grains of sand can cause significant pain without seeing stones on CT. Watch out for other causes. Renal infarcts, ureter spasms, infection etc can all cause similar symptoms.
