Discomfort in abdomen, gastric like pain radiating to coccyx causing burning. Kidney stone?

I am a 40 yr old female and have had discomfort in the right lower quadrant of my abd, and would describe it as gas-like pain. this has been for 2 days. I am not constipated , bowels are normal. This morning the pain has seemed to change and move around, it feels like its in my coccyx and burns. I did have lapband surgery for weight loss 10/27/11. y only health issue at this time is pseudotumor cerebri which is getting better due to weight loss. Could this pain be kidney stone? I did go to the doctor about 3 weeks ago and they dipped my urine because i felt as if I was getting an infection, same type of pain as described above. There was wbc s no blood, no protein . I took cipro bid for a week, the culture came back normal

General & Family Physician 's  Response
the pain you mentioned arisies in the flank and moves forward resembles to renal pain and as u stated that you had urine analysis which contained wbc's which are actually dead white cells reffered as pus cells signify renal infection. however you didnot mentioned the actual no. of the wbc's as they may be insignificant to yeild a positive culture or if u had performed the culture and sensitivity test after using cipro and then u can get the false negative result. however for the current pain you are having which is more likely to renal pain i would recommend you to increase your fluid intake. repeat urine analysis and perform an ultrasound pelvis and ultrasound KUB,
with regards
