stomach/back pain please help

I am a 38 year old female with no health problems.  I have attacks in the stomach area  (solar plexis) that radiates through to the back.  It is an internal pain.  I have had an MRI, Cat scan, upper and lower GI , ultrasound and a colonoscopy done.   The doctors had no idea what is causing this pain, but it is excruciatingly painful.  They gave me a script for perks, and said retest in 6 months.  The pain in not constant, it is present for a day here or there,  weeks or even months apart. I now have to take 2 perks to even get rid of the pain.  They told me next time it happens to come in while it is happening, well I did that, and my doctor was off that day so they sent me home. And yes I have gone to the hospital too.   The pain doesnt radiate to the left of right, it is straight from front to slightly upper back.  It feels like a burning or tearing it's not a sharp pain here or there or a pulsing pain.     It is not heartburn, I've tried that route too. I have it again now, I took a perk and 3 hours later it was back, obviously because it never left.  I am sick of masking the pain, any help would be greatly appreciated.

well,all i can say is this,,,,i have the EXACT SAME THING,YOUR NOT ALONE!!!
mine does the exact same thing,in the same place and radiates to my back also.
i have had mine now for 9 years!!!
sometimes i dont get it for months at a time,sometimes i get it like 1 time a day for a week straight!!!
ive had every test too you can think of,,,ruled out gallbladder,hernia,pancreas,liver,ulcer,cancer,heart,,,all the bad stuff.
i do not get sick with it,just the pain.
i have not lost weight from it.
i guess after 9 years if it was going to kill me it would have done so!,,,but i know what you mean,it is a bad pain,,and feels like it comes from inside,not on the surface.
all i can say is hang in there,and if you EVER FIND OUT WHAT YOUR PROBLEM IS,PLEASE REMEMBER ME,AND LET ME KNOW,,,IM SURE IT IS ONE IN THE SAME!!!!!
