Brief Answer:
Need more information

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear !! Thanks for your query to HCM.
Read and reviewed the facts of your query.I feel concerned about the unresolved stomach pain despite the Scan you had.
It seems you consulted your doctor for this problem.

More Information,please-
I would need more details like-
Since how long this stomach pains are there?
How these pains start -is it related with any particular food / or diet- like spicy/ fried diet?
How about your bowel movements?
What is the location of abdominal pain-upper / lower - and right / or left of abdomen?
Do you have acidity and reflux acidity?
Any blood / mucus in stools?
Any Fissure in ano / or piles you have?
What is the frequency per day and what is the color of it?
Any gases / bloated abdomen/ acidity with these pains?
Any other past illness you have with this?
Any history of similar complaints in the past?
Any chronic illness for which you take regular medicines currently or lately?
Was the CT or the USG scan done?
Any other tests- like stool -occult blood / ova / cyst test is done by your doctor?

My primary opinion-
Based on the limited facts of your query-
you seem to suffer from Gastritis - as most of your stomach pain comes after afternoon, where by that time you might be having your meals-hope so.Please clarify on this fact.
Possibility of EnteroColitis with Gastritis needs to be evaluated.
There seems to be some obstructive factor / or inflammatory factor, which is giving sever colicky pain in the abdomen.

I would be awaiting more detailed information from you, after which further suggestions would be planned.

Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Good Day !!
