    Feeling pains along the left side of my body.
    Categorically: mild headache, mild neck pains,chest pains, slight but uncomfortable arm pains, severe waist pain and unceasing irritating pains and burning sensation under left foot.
    After several tests, the MRI of the Cervical Spine is identified as the cause but one Neurosurgeon claims clean on MRI test.
    I’m confused but undergoing Physiotherapy.
    Doc. Corenman, please help me.

    The MRI image readings are but a small part of diagnosis. I would need to hear of your history and symptoms to have a better understanding of your potential disorder. Please see this hyperlink.
