My mom is 49 years old. She's having body pain in left side of her body from head to toe since 3-4 years. We got an MRI and CT scan done a couple of years back, but it all showed positive report. Then an year back, we consulted a heart doctor, but he also said that it's not related to heart (which we doubt). So please tell me what can be the possible reason for left side body pain. Can it be related to nerves? What tests should we go for now? TIA.

Pain is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. It works as an alarm system, a signal to tell us to stop doing something that may be harmful to us, and in this way protects us from dangerous situations. For this reason, pain should always be taken seriously.Our ability to withstand pain depends a lot on the mood we are in, our personality and the circumstances under which our pain occurs. In the heat of the moment (e.g. during an exciting foot ball match), we may be able to override our feelings of pain to get the job done.In the FA cup final of 1956, the Manchester City Goalkeeper, Bert Traut man, broke his neck 15 minutes before the end of the match, yet he continued to play and saw his team clinch victory.
OUR NERVOUS SYSTEM
Pain gets on our nerves, quite literally.Our perception of pain is controlled by our nervous system, the part of our bodies that records and distributes information throughout the body. Our nervous system is in two parts, the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.The smallest unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell or neuron. These are highly specialized structures that are able to conduct massages to and from the brain as fast-moving nerve impulses(electrical signals). Nerve cells communicate with each other via their dendrites, spindly extensions that act as antennae and gather information for the nerve cell to deal with. Nerve themselves are made up of bundles of the axons of the nerve cells. They transmit electrical nerve impulses between the peripheral and central nervous systems. To look at it another way, nerve are the electrical wiring of the body and the brain and the spinal cord are the nerve centre-the mission control of pain perception.
