Brief Answer:
Gall stones as first possibility

Detailed Answer:
Hi, the pain she has seems to be due gallstones based on site and type. Other possibilities could be renal stones, which could have been ruled out by scan. If you think it’s because of babysitting, let her take good rest for 4 days by sleeping well. It will reduce if muscle related. Otherwise, it is gallstones as first possibility.

Regards, Dr. Mahesh
