Welcome to e health forum.

The description of your pain appears to be due to renal or pelvic organ involvement.

Any issues like ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammatory disease, or colitis can also be the cause of your symptoms.

Pain that originates due to renal issues (Stones, infection) is usually episodic , spasmodic or colicky in ‎nature, ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎originating ‎in the flank and radiating to the lower belly, inner thigh. It is ‎associated with other ‎‎‎‎symptoms like ‎‎‎‎nausea, vomiting ‎and systemic features due to any infection. ‎

The exact cause of your symptoms need to be ruled out with a ultrasound or a CT scan of the abdomen. The ‎‎‎‎results of a Urinalysis, might also give a clue to the probable cause. ‎
Hence you might consult with your doctor for a proper physical examination and proper therapeutic advice.‎
