Having major cramps. Prescribed painkillers, anti-inflammation medication. Root cause of problems?

Hi, I m a female almost 55 years old ... For the past 3-4 weeks I have had pain - I can describe the pain as major menstral pain / cramps..... Pretty constant. I had a co poets hysterectomy about 20 years ago because of Fibro tumers. - my doctor first treated me as if it was a UTI - with antibiotics - did not take care of my problem. - next they did a CT scan of the abodomon and pelvic area..... Found nothing. - my Dr prescribed pain pill and anti-Inflation medication.... Which I really don t want to take either .... I just to know what the root cause of my pain. I don t want to mask the symptoms. What could be going on with my body??? For the most part I am very active and very healthy.... What could be going on with me any suggestions?

Thanks for the query.
As your CT abdomen and pelvis is normal, there may not be any major problem.
You didn't mention any thing about your bowel habits, if you are having any constipation etc., take laxatives which can relieve the symptoms to some extent.
You can go for culture and sensitivity of the urine, to find out any residual infection and take treatment accordingly.
Take analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs prescribed by your doctor that can give some relief.

Take care.
