Brief Answer:
Can be polyarthralgia.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Repeated joint pains can be due to multiple causes at this age the commonest being polyarthralgia.

Other causes can be rheumatoid arthritis, gout, inflammatory diseases like SLE, bursitis, fibromyalgia, etc. The raised sedimentation rate suggests an inflammation. I'd suggest consulting a Rheumatologist for proper treatment.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
