Thank you for your question. Given the fact that your gastrointestinal diagnostic testing resulted in unremarkable findings, it is possible that your pain could have another etiology. It could be due to abdominal muscle straining or spasms, or due to an in issue with an internal organ with referred pain to the abdomen. Please seek the consultation of a physician who will perform the appropriate testing to determine the cause of this pain.
