It could be a sign: Of a pinched nerve, muscle or nerve inflammation, physical exhaustion etc. Consider getting a second opinion if not satisfied with your first dr. Best wishes!

Listen to your body: A good history is often more revealing than blood tests or heart tests. Is the pain like a toothache which would be nerve related? Go back to what your were doing before you first noticed the pain. Did you use your body in ways that you were not used to? Where are you in your menstrual cycle.?S your position while sleeping playing a role? Experiment with eating an anti-inflammatory diet.
