Eight months ago I lost my appetite and began having aching pain in my abdomen as well as constipation. It was not helped by laxatives or antacids. Recently, there have been other symptoms, including: a spread of pain throughout my torso; a tingling feeling in my chest as well as a sensation of fluid moving around between the ribs; burning pain in my arm; back pain; sensitivity to noise; muscle spasms in random places in body; and nerve pain like quick pinpricks. I've had a bunch of blood tests, an EKG, a few X-rays, and a upper GI cat scan, and the results were all normal. Next week I'm going in for an MRI and I'll be amazed if that doesn't come back normal, too. Any thoughts?
