Since you've had all the testing, I assume you have seen a neurologist. If not, that's who you need to see for an evaluation.

Find a neurologist with experience in peripheral nerve disorders, as EMG does not exclude all varieties of this type. Don't give up as there are more ways to proceed.

Sinus infection?: The muscle aches, headache, and fever suggests some infection. It sounds like it might be a sinus infection. If fever is over 100.5, then seeing a doctor is wise. Otherwise, trying some decongestants and/or antihistamines to open up the sinuses and let them drain; and add some Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) for the muscle and head aches. See a primary care doctor if symptoms don't get better or do get worse.

Lung scarring: It most likely will not cause a problem but it depends on the extent and location of the scarring. Long term scars of the lung may be associated with an increased risk of developing into carcinoma particulary with a history of smoking but this is relatively low incidence.

Kidney stone?: There is definitely something going on. Are you on anbiotics for a specific diagnosis? Your symptoms are suggestive of kidney stone. Pain from a gynecologic source isn't ruled out. See your doctor for follow up soon.

I have had chest xray and throastic spine MRI with no contrast. I have this back pain in my upper back that comes and goes. If I had lung cancer would they have saw anything?

NO: To assess lungs for masses, cancerous or not, need cat scan thorax. Chest xray will consistently miss small potentially curable tumors depending on location in lungs , size and density.Mri of the spine has a limited view of parts of the lungs and you can not rule out the presence of a lung lesion with an MRI of the spine and a chest xray. Mri of the thoracic spine is not used to find lung nodules.

My 5 year old daughter is complaining of "stomach" pain. No nausea, and her whole abdomen seems to be tender to the touch. Last bowel movement was yesterday. Normal appetite. Sleeping more than usual. No fever. It's hard to tell what's real & what's

Abdominal pain: Is there a histaory of abdominal trauma? What has she eaten or drank today? Regardless, first order is to induce a bowel movement since she hasn't had one today. Observe for another hour or two. If the stomachache worsens, a shift in the location of the pain occurs and/or she develops vomiting or fever, it will be best to have her evaluated at the ed tonight.

I would agree. If she's tender all over it could be something serious like a ruptured appendix. Get her to the Emergency Department.
