Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
By the symptoms you have suggested, it appears either it could be due to polyarthritis or generalised myalgia.
For arthritis, you can get the following blood tests done: ESR, ASLO, CRP and RA factor.
For myalgia, you can get serum calcium and phosphate levels done.
You can visit an Orthopedician for further management.
