Hi Nicole! Thanks for your kind words and for reaching out with this question! Because there are so many sources for referral patterns, there is undoubtedly some conflicting information. My advice would be to do a Google image search and find the most commonly reported referral patterns for the major visceral organs (https://www.google.com/search?q=visceral+pain+referral+patterns&tbm=isch&ved=2ahUKEwiI8qrp7qL2AhVJtVMKHZIJAXQQ2-cCegQIABAA&oq=visceral+pain+referral+patterns&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQAzIHCCMQ7wMQJzIHCCMQ7wMQJ1C9C1i9C2C5DWgAcAB4AIABNIgBaJIBATKYAQCgAQGqAQtnd3Mtd2l6LWltZ8ABAQ&sclient=img&ei=r_4cYsjeA8nqzgKSk4SgBw&bih=937&biw=1920&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS927US927).

I did find this tutorial from a PT that is helpful: https://jmcafeept.com/visceral-pain-referral

Hope this helps!
