Brief Answer: Can be due to many causes. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. I can appreciate that you are very concerned regarding the symptoms which you have noticed recently. The constant pains all over the body can be due to a recent viral infection, metabolic disorder like diabetes , irritable bowel syndrome a hormonal disturbance like thyroid imbalance fibromyalgia, nutritional deficiencies or any kind of inflammatory bowel disorder. If you have history of anxiety, it may be a factor responsible too. I would advise that you start supporting your body with good hydration, adequate sleep, a well-balanced diet and a moderate exercise regimen. Exercise is actually good for the immune system which is why I suggest it here. In addition you can supplement your diet with some Vitamin C - 1000 mg daily and consider drinking some immune boost type of tea such as Echinacea which is readily available at most supermarkets. If you do not find any changes with the aforementioned regimen say in the next 2-3 weeks, you can visit your local doctor who can start investigating for those conditions. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
