Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. As per your description and tests done so far, the likely cause can be an ulcer in stomach, muscular pain or nerve compression. All these causes are never picked on a CT scan. For ulcer, we do endoscopy and for muscular strain and nerve compression we do MRI. You can give a try to OTC capsule omeprazole 20 mg twice daily and Tylenol thrice daily for 2 weeks to see if helps. If symptoms persist, see your doctor again for an evaluation as suggested above. I reassure you that as per your symptoms and tests done so far, nothing serious is possible. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards
