Hi this is mos probably due to musculoskeletal causes. I suggest a neurologist and orthopedic consulting.

Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer... Detailed Answer: Hi again, Thank you for sending in your additional medical data. If you have already done MRIs, ultrasounds and ct-scan,etc, and they resulted normal; then, the pain you feel is idiopathic in the nature (according to medical classification). If this is your case, should consult psychologist for further treatment. However, first must be excluded prior trauma, and arthritis. Wish you health! Dr.Benard
