I have had this problem for almost 30 years. I am almost certain it is caused by stress, at least in my case. I went to doctors for years who, like someone else said, treated me like I was crazy. One actually tried to give me orange colored coated aspirin to prove it was all in my head. I asked the nurse what it was and when I found out it was aspirin, I never went back to him. My friend's daughter has this. They just put her on Plaquenil and she says its helping. For me, the only thing that helps is ice. As I'm typing this, I can barely hold my head up fron lack of sleep. I have not slept through a night for 15 years.
