In brief: See answer

Most common urological cause of bladder pain, in the absence of infection (uti), is interstitial cystitis (aka painful bladder syndrome) which is a non-bacterial inflammation of the bladder. Usually also associated with a variable degree of increased urinary frequency and painful intercourse.
Would also be important to rule out other causes of pelvic pain from urinary, gyne, and GI tracts.

In brief: RU sure Bladder pain

Some minor inflammatory markers, which are non-specific.
May not be the bladder with all other normal testing so far. Possible a uterine issue or bowel issue. Continue with seeing the dr. And be persistent with the diagnostic work up. Possibly a pelvic us or ct of the abd/pelvis would reveal something. Any problems with bowels-then get colon eval, etc.
