    Since you have seen the urologist and clarified that it is not related to the kidneys or urinary tract, you can exclude that as a possible cause. Pain on its own without other symptoms is quite non-specific. Your account is a bit confusing because I am unsure if you mean that the pain is extending from the abdomen running down to the pelvic area or only associated with the hip alone. And I am also unsure what you mean by acidity – are you experiencing heartburn? Also not sure what the word ‘shull’ means.As you can see in this article, there are various causes of right side abdominal pain –

    It would be difficult for us to isolate a cause without knowing other symptoms and given that your urologist did not detect any abnormalities, apart from the kidney and urinary tract. Muscular pain is a very common cause and tends to cause tenderness and so on with pressure. So if this is what your doctor has diagnosed, it is difficulty for us to dispute this. If you are seeing other symptoms developing then it may be useful to report it to your doctor as it will provide a better clinical indication. Pain near the right hip could be due to gynecological problems (women), appendicitis, and other gastrointestinal conditions. Your doctor will have to reassess you again.
