Abdominal pain: The CT is very sensitive and specific for right lower quadrant pain and a negative scan is reassuring not that. Other possibilities for right lower quadrant pain would be mesenteric adenenits. The pain could be associated with some type of colon problem such as inflammatory bowel, but that would likely show signs on scan. Irritable a possiblity. GU issue bladder, kidneystone possible too.
