never ending arm pain

pain in the upper arm, right in the middle. No shoulder or elbow pain. Left is worse than the right, if I bump my arm or if someone sqeezes my arm, even lightly it causes me more pain.  My arms hurt all the the time, I wake up in pain.  I am 19 yrs old and have been having this pain since I was about 11 yrs old.  I have been to a Rheumatologist, Orthopedic, Muscle specialist and Surgeon.  I have had MRIs, Xrays and an EEG...nothing!  The pain is always there, please please help.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The pain in the middle of the arm on both sides could be due to fibromyalgia if nerve compression of lower cervical nerve and first thoracic nerve is ruled out. It could also be a muscle problem but it has been ruled out in your case. Fibromyalgia is usually generalized but at times it can be felt localized.
Vit B12 and Vit D deficiency too should be looked into.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
