Having pain in elbows. Experiencing pain in hips and knees as well. What could it be?

Hi. Six months ago began to experience a dull ache in both of my elbows, one more-so than the other. Not every day, but was particularly in the mornings. This has slowly increased and is now constant but particularly noticeable upon waking, and when carrying weight (eg. shopping bags) and lifting heavier objects. The pain feels like it is deep in the bone, but also the surrounding area i.e not on the surface; bruising on the skin's layers. Times when it is particularly bad the pain refers to my wrists, and I also seem to be experiencing aching in my hips and a little in my knees. Weird?

Hello, it seems u have multiple joints pain which has developed into a chronic one. Please mention your age and whether u have any family history or are you having other symptoms like burning sensation in urine or pain in small joints of finger. I advise you to go through basic blood test like CBC, ESR, RA factor, urea, creatinine, FBS and CRP along with a X-ray of both elbow AP and lateral view. Feel free to consult me back at
