Krista thanks for your input. I am so sorry to hear about your problem. Pain on lower right side is sometime confusing. There are many structures there. The cause can be a urinary tract infection, a urinary tract stone, ovarian cyst etc. Sometime there are concretions in the urinary tract and they are not picked up on CT scan. You are concerned that whom you should visit, so here is the practical suggestion for you. 1. You should visit primary care physician(MD) again for further workup.2. Get ultrasound abdomen, Xray KUB and Intravenous pyelography and (if doctor feel like), urine culture. 3. According to results, your doctor can refer you further to a urologist or OB GYN or most likely he may treat you himself. Going to GYN straight away is not good because if there is some cause other than ovaries, she will not be able to help you. Till you visit, OTC tab aleve (stronger than advil) can help you, it's to be taken twice daily. Drink lots of water and other fluids like cranberry juice.I hope this helps you, I wish you good luck that you get well soon, please ask if you have any question because our discussion always remains open so you can always ask more till you are satisfied, You can click the smiley to rate the answer.
