Joint pain in elbows, knees, hip. Having lump in the elbow. Suggestions?

I have been having bad joint pain in both elbows, knees and left side of my hip. At night it is worse and I wake up hot and now I found a lump on the inner left side of my elbow. I have had low white blood cel count for 3 years in a row and the hemotoglist did not find any abnormalitiies. She said it could be just a normal low for me. The pain is so intense and I did have a infected lymph node removed around 8 years back. Sometimes I can hardly get up and walk or use my arms without pain constantly. I do have arthritis and my OB gyn can hear a heart murmor but not my Family practice doctor now 2 years in row. My age is 53 and I have not had any weight loss. Email is YYYY@YYYY . Also, they thought I might of had cat scratch fever when my lymph node was removed but could not reevaluate my blood since family pracice doctor described me antibodtics as precautionary measure

Thanks for writing to us.
You are having multiple symptoms which are difficult to put togather to a single diagnosis in the absence of a proper clinical examination and appropriate investigations. Do consult your physician for the same.
