If the doctor, who apparently examined you, and who ordered chest x-ray and scan was not able to figure out the nature of your condition, it is not reasonable to expect anyone in this forum to be able to do better. You may take acetaminophen for pain, no more than 4 g/day, no alcohol. A supervised program of exercise would be worth try.
Wish you good health!
