im an active 21 yr old guy. i could really use some diagnosing what i have.

some help* alright so here's the deal, i am a healthy and active 21 year old guy. my problems have brought me so much anxiety and sadness. i try to have a positive outlook on life, but its getting so hard with the following problems:

2 years ago in a football tackle i bent my spine backwards too much and have been dealing with a strange pain behind my right shoulder blade ever since. i have tried everything to help. mri's of my whole spine showed nothing besides mild swelling in my t6-t8.(i believe i could have a pinched nerve in this spot from the football tackle) the doctor(specialist) said no and doesnt know whats wrong.... chiropractors, massage, acupuncture, nothing helped for more than a few hours. now this pain affects my neck now, specifically on the right side causing a decent amount of discomfort. it sucks because this pain in my neck makes me feel so weird. ridiculous at times, hence the possible radiculopathy i self diagnosed myself with. being my neck is attached to my head, i feel weird just trying to stand up straight because i feel pain. I forget what its like to feel normal. i just want to feel normal again. im sick of this pain. it rly hasnt gotten much worse or better over the past 2 years. this past week i started taking steroids because my family doctor thinks i could have a pinched nerve, but they only help slightly.
a couple of weeks ago my right calf has been bothering me. its like a mild aching pain, even when i am lying down... ?
these pains make me feel very insecure, i dont feel normal...
i believe i could have a possible tmj too because my jaw on the right side pops(clicks) when i open my mouth. and lately i feel a subtle pressure in my right ear...?
this all sounds so crazy i know... i feel hopeless. I pray hoping God will help.

how can i live the rest of my life like this? i try to stay postive, but these problems bring me so much grief. i am in college and trying to pursue marketing, i have the intellectual capability to attain great grades, but if i was healthy, my life would be so much better.
