Brief Answer:
degenerative wear and tear ,osteoporosis

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case with diligence.

At age of 70 there can be degenerative wear of muscles and ligament and loss of elasticity of muscles, due to deficiency of VIT B12 and carnitine these symptoms can be aggravated .so supplements of these nutrients can relieve pain.

Another associated factor can be due to osteoporosis of bones there can be diffuse pain all over body.
Check your bone strength with DEXA SCAN and you can start medication according to level of osteoporosis,
I will advise you to do regular physiotherapy and exercises as my patients find much relief by these therapies.

You can continue your already prescribed medications. Though muscle pain is a side-effect of some of your medicines, it is less common. Moreover it will not have muscle weakness.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care
