Pain only on the right side of body

My daughter is 16 years old. She has a problem with
pain in the thoracic region of her back. The pain
radiates down her right arm into the ring finger and
little finger and into her right leg. Writing is very
painful because of the pain. Standing or sitting makes
the pain worse. This all started three years ago. For
about 13 month this problem appeared to have subsided
with the exception of the pain in her back, which was
there if she gave thought to it. A month ago it
re-appeared. She has been seen my many specialist, all
MRIs have been negative. She does however, have a 20
degree curvature in her spine just at the point of the
pain. I have been told by the ortho specialist that
her scoliosis is not the problem. This all seems to me
to be somehow related to how spine is resting in her
back. I would like some feedback of thought with this
problem. My daughter is a junior in high school and
this medical concern is affecting her attendence at
school.
Thanks,
Mother and Daughter
