Question: I am not doing any better. I still have so much pain in stomach and now I feel like I have pain in every nerve and joint in my body. Every doctor I've gone to doesn't seem to have answer as to what's causing the pain. Each day seems worse than the one before. I have even tried acupuncture with no results. I next step may be a neurologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.

Consultation with a neurologist should be done to look for any organic cause of the pain.
Organic pain implies pain occurring due to some disease process in the body.
There is pain which can occur in the absence of any disease process.
This type of pain is somatiform type of pain implying that pain is manifestation of some other stressor in body most commonly psychological problem.

A couple of investigations may be required.
Management can be instituted after clinical assessment and investigations.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

My MIR report reads: well circumscribed mass in the left paradoxical muscle at the level of c4_5 deep to the left semispinalis muscle belly . Marginally increased from 9x8x14mm to12x11x16 . There is a slight mass effect and deviation of surrounding muscles.Impression: previously noted mass along g left paraspinal muscle at c4_5 has very marginally increased from 4_17_13. It does show enhancement and could represent a small peripheral nerve sheath tumor or other soft tissue mass. My question is ? What s is the next step? From reading this report, is this something I should be alarmed about?
