Thanks for the query.
If she has gone to all doctors and has also done all possible investigations then you will need to take her to a Psychiatrist.She might be most probably suffering from Psychogenic pain .Psychogenic pain is a pain disorder associated with psychological factors. Some types of mental or emotional problems can cause, increase, or prolong pain.Headaches, muscle pains, back pain, and stomach pains are some of the most common types of psychogenic pain.She will need detailed evaluation.
