May be RSD: Which stands for reflex sympathetic dystrophy. It is kind of when the nervous system goes a little haywire but often involves a lot of pain. It can cause the other symptoms you describe. There is treatment, but no specific cure. If you have pain with it, you could try seeing a pain specialist.
