Dear sir/madam. These symptoms and signs seems very serious and evaluation shoud be done as soon as possible. Ill-defined masses on all quadrants?? What did doctor that diagnosed it recommended? This kind of pain associated with fever is a sign of intraadbominal infection and some of imaging tests should be done,US or CT scan. You need to do inflammatory markers. vital signs are ok but it sounds like intraabdominal infection( appendicitis, colitis, diverticulitis, abscesses,tumors) and surgical and gastroent. work up should be performed.

Wish you good health.Dr. Ivan Romich
