Hello, I am a 20 year old female, the past month or two I have had random bouts of stomach pain and/or back pain. The back pain is usually on my left lower side above my hips but can be on the right occasionally. The stomach pain has never been localized. I had urine test done to check for infection and it all came back clear. The past two days I have had a low-grade fever that comes and goes. Any ideas?
