I have swelling to the left side just below the ribe cage,and its very painfull to the touch from the left side of my bellybutton around to my back. I have had CT scans and a MRI. Its very painfull to wear a shirt or have a blanket on me. I have no rash I will have another MRI for the middle back soon (Dr is looking for a pinched nerve). If the MRI shows no pinched nerve any idea what the cause could be?
