Have swelling in shoulder, lower back, hip and knee

Hi I have been in constant severe pain over 3 years now. My left shoulder by my neck is swollen and when I put pressure on it, it goes down my arm and be numbness. I have lower back pain on my left side and my hip and knee stays swollen. I fell on my left tail bone in 2007 and if I put pressure on it, I feel numbness down my leg. Also it is moving to my right arm and right calves. I be in constant pain every day and it hurts to get out of bed. I have fallen 3 times in 2013 because my left knee goes out on me. Please help. I have been going to doctor after doctor and no one seems to know.
