If you are concerned about a possible ectopic pregnancy then you need to be checked immediately.
Did they not do a pregnancy test before the ct scan? Other things like cysts, endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, hernias can all cause those symptoms but most are detectable on a ct or a pelvic ultrasound. A muscular strain or injury would not. Get it checked.

In brief: Pain/missed period
The above are most common signs of ectopic pregnancy, but they are highly nonspecific.
If you are concerned about possible ectopic pregnancy, #1 is to take a home pregnancy test. Obviously if you are not pregnant, you cannot have an ectopic. If you are pregnant and in pain, call or see your doctor, who may refer you to an emergency room based on your condition.
