Thanks for writing in.
Pain radiating from back to abdomen is more likely to be renal colic or biliary colic. But as ultrasound has come normal, those possibilities become zero.

Again hepatitis can cause raised liver enzymes but sever pain will not occur. Even cholecystitis can cause similar pain.
I would recommend you to get CT Scan abdomen to rule out above conditions as ultrasound can miss few things.

I hope I have answered your query. Feel free to revert back for further clarification if required.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
