Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.
yes, but it sounds to me like neurological pain so nothing wont be found on ultrasound. There can be also some urinary or testicle infection so do tests to rule this out. If nothing is found then there can be intraabdominal pathology and you should do CT scan to visualize this.
Wish you good health.
