Anneule,

The best diagnostic technique is a thorough history and examination. Medical students are taught that 90% of diagnoses are made from the H&P, with testing used to confirm their suspicion.

You might see a physiatrist, who is a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). Hope you find your answers. Good luck.
