Brief Answer:
maybe the stone had passed out

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Severe pain moving to the front with nausea, with history of kidney stones, is usually seen in stone moving down into the ureter.

So chances are there that the stone might had passed out. Thats why it didn't showed up on the CT.

So assuming the stone is out, with a normal CT, there isn't anything left to be worried about. As other causes of pain in that area like appendicitis, ovarian cyst or tube conditions, are all ruled out with a normal ct.

You may see the urologist, but i believe there is nothing left for him to do.

Hope i have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma
