Herniated Discs in Back and Costochondritis

I have the exact same symptoms - I have had many tests (including CT, MRI for Abdomen & Back, and Xrays) which showed Liver FNH and Liver Hemangioma which would not cause pain supposedly, as well as 2 Herniated Discs in Back and Costochondritis. Still however the doctor wants to do one more test now, just to get a better idea because of the fact that my pain is so severe and I am not responding to Physical Therapy... Does this sound familiar to Anybody??

Hi Welcome to Heath Care Magic

What is the major symptoms? Back pain? Abdominal pain?MRI abdomen is rare to do? For what disease the doctor searching? Give me your complete history. I will suggest tests which are appropriate. Laboratory tests can be ordered but Images are expensive. There should be solid reason to do the test.
