Thanks for posting your query.

I have read your query, the human body often communicates through inflammatory signals called aches and pains. It uses signals to warn of existing problems or possible problems about to occur. Causes of redness and pains are virtually endless, occurring anywhere in the human body.

Unexplainable aches and pains that continue longer than three days require medical attention. Joint pain is the bane of arthritics and fibromyalgics and can be chronic and unrelenting. Women who are menopausal may be plagued with increased joint pain because they no longer have the joint protection provided by the hormone estrogen.

In addition, joint pain increases with age, often the result of osteoarthritis, which is the wear and tear form of arthritis.

I recommend you to consult your clinician to understand the underlying cause.

Please do write back in case you have follow up queries to ask.
