Study group discussion: Referred pain

Can someone please give me regions of referred pain areas?
Eg. Pain in the shoulder could infer problem with diaphragm.

Right shoulder pain - problem with gall bladder (eg. Cholecystitis)
Left shoulder and ulnar border of left arm and hand - myocardial infarction.

Knee pain can refer to hip.

Renal colic pain is referred to the back.

Splenic rupture can refer pain to left shoulder - Kehr's sign

What is Kehr's sign please?

Splenic rupture or hemorrhage irritates the diaphragm on left side and that refer s the pain to the left shoulder. Same like cholecystitis on right side.
