What is causing my back ribs to severly ache?


Q: I have been suffering from bone pain in my back, ribs, and sometimes into my pelvic bone for about 2 years now. I had a bone density scan that came back fine. I have seen 3 doctors who all have had no clue what is causing the pain. It's a deep acheing pain. I am 24 years old, very active, healthy weight. I don't get sick often and my only known allergy is to milk. What should my next step be into finding the source of my pain. It is at a point where I am tired all the time and in so much pain it is affecting my everyday life.
