Brief Answer: needs investigations Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I have read your query. I am sorry about your health concern. I also see that you have had an x-ray of the portion which is normal. One possibility for your pain could be low blood calcium and/or vitamin D levels. I would suggest you to get serum calcium and Vitamin D level tests done firstly. Second, it could be manifestation of arthritis that could be running in the family. Does any of your family member have similar complaints? In such a case, further testing for arthritis needs to be done. I would suggest you to drink a glass of milk daily, along with other calcium rich foods. Hope this helps you. Regards,
