Detailed Answer:
Hi and Thanks for your query.

Seems you are suffering from multiple joint pain -polyarthritis. Possible causes could be Vit D deficiency, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, inflammatory diseases like SLE, bursitis, fibromyalgia, etc.

I would suggest you to get yourself examined by an Orthopaedician for multiple joint pains . You would be asked to undergo few blood tests like Hb, RBS, TLC, DLC, ESR, RA factor, CRP, serum uric acid, vit D3 level These investigations will help us find out the exact cause. Discuss with your doctor.

You can take Vit.D and calcium supplements. Pain killers like acetaminophen/ibuprofen can be taken to reduce pain and inflammation.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries
Take care.
