Chest and abdominal : Can a T7 problem cause chest pain and abdominal pain yes. The T7 sclerotome refers pain to the upper abdominal region and the T7 nerve can cause pain in the chest. The question are your problems related to T7. I can't be sure without examining you. If it possible that your chest and abdominal pain are not related to T7, yes.
