My fifteen year old daughter has had right side lower quadrant pain, pain when bending or twisting, pain when riding in a car, pain if you press a certain spot, reduced appetite, and extreme fatigue. The pain has not moved or gone away since May 15th. May 15th she was treated for a UTI but the culture came back nonspecific. May 18th we went to ER, they did blood work (normal), urinalysis almost normal (gave antibiotics through IV with follow up pills), xray (nonobstructive bowel gas pattern), ultrasound (negative exam however appendix not identified) Also stated that a very small amount of fluid in the cul-de-sac. CT scan with oral contrast (No acute process identified). We have been to the OBGYN who doesn't think it was a cyst she did a urinalysis and said it was clear, pediatrician ordered more blood test and stool sample - both came back fine. She was ending her period on May 15 and has just started her next period on June 8th. Periods have been normal and with no pain or cramping. She says the pain is constant and has many sharp knife stabbing pains. Still in pain on June 10th where should we go next? She has had no pain when urinating or when having a bowel movement. Both are normal for her and the side pain doesn't get better or worse with elimination.
