Chronic pain: Sometimes it's not easy to diagnose the cause. You may think it's one thing and it could be another. MRI can't pick up nerve damage, vitamin deficiencies, genetic issues, etc. If after a very thorough assessment if nothing comes up than consideration may be given to things like CRPS or fibro.
