  • It sounds like you have some kind of nerve compression, however I would strongly suggest getting checked out for multiple myeloma.. This and other bone disorders can result in nerve pain. I would consult a doctor that specializes in disease of the bone.Another possibility is Herpes (Zoster) related nerologic problems, however it would not be this bad and constant.The pain can also be caused by muscle tissue distruction: so look into Glycogen storage diseases and other related Muscle protein deficiencies which cause tissue destruction.

  • I recently saw a similar story on the show "Mystery Diagnosis" and it turned out to be something with the thyroid. Many doctors had seen the patient and had overlooked the lab results. I would have it checked, the person had a lot of pain and no energy.

  • This is a long shot, but I would investigate the possiblity of Arnold-Chiari malformation.
