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

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.
