Our expert says:
It does sound as if you have some wear and tear changes in the joints and this may or not be as a result of the MVA. remember we all seem to start getting a bit of wear and tear changes in the joints as we age. I do know that the more active you are, the better it seems to get. Have you tried gentle mobilising exercises like pilates? You have had all possible tests done and it doesn't show any structural abnormalities, but the more pain you experience, the less you move around and the stiffer and more painful your joints become. You can also try some heat packs when the pain is bad and try to get up and move around every 15 minutes or so when you are at work. Anti-inflammatories shouldn't really make you feel lethargic and you can take a course of 5-7 days when your pain is more severe. The only thing I can really recommend is exercise, but go to an expert and don't do too much high impact. Stretching and muscle strengthening exercises are better.
