In brief: Nerves

Did your MRI include the upper spinal column? Have you had any blood test, specifically calcium levels? The differential includes: Over-use injury (over use causing local inflammation and irritation of the nerves); a "pinched" or impinged nerve, or it could also be an electrolyte abnormality like low calcium causing the nerves to be more prone to tetanic activity.
