Our expert says:
If the local causes of the pain were excluded ( tendonitis, arthritis, injuries, bursitis and sprains) one should start looking at metabolic causes (gout) or referred pain (lower back problems causing a pinched nerve). Are you seeing an orthopedic specialist and have they done some blood tests? A solution may be to go to a pain clinic and have a nerve block of the area?
