See a doctor: Yes, this could be stress, along with a dozen or more other things. You need to be seen by a good clinician who will spend the time and effort working this out with you. Good luck.

Pain: There are multiple reasons for your pain and you have either ruled out or are treating two of the most concerning. Another cause of pain you are describing is musculoskeletal, so follow with your primary physician for further evaluation.
