Hello Lisa,
Those are neuralgic pains and can be idiopathic in nature or due to compression of one or more nerves on your arms, back, buttocks etc. You can take carbamazepine or neucleo cmp forte to calm down the pain, then visit a neurologist for proper evaluation . Try to investigate yourself which positions can provoke or aggravate the pains.

Hope this helps
