In brief: Viscero-somatic

1. If the pain is persistent, it could be a viscero-somatic reflex whereby the nerves that feed specific organs become painful in response to a dysfunction in the organ or organ system. Mid back pain is frequently associated with dysbiosis, an imbalance of the bowel flora.
How are your bowels?
