How to identify the type of pain I have ?
Psycogenic or psychosomatic
Peripheral neuropathy, if that's what you have with your hands and and legs, is something the neurologists don't know all the causes of and they can only identify the cause in a certain percentage of patients. See private message for more info on peripheral neuropathy.
The pains in your ear- if infection has been ruled out, have they considered a TMJ problem on that side? That can cause pain in the ear.
