Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include postural issues, neuro-muscular causes such as muscle sprain, nerve impingement, injuries to muscles/ ligaments etc. inflammations, spinal structural issues, fractures/ dislocations, bone bruise, micronutrient deficiencies, referred pain from other regions etc. While dynamic radiological studies can be done, I am not really sure where would these be available in Ireland. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician, preferably at a university/ teaching hospital for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.
