Pain in hips, fingers, shoulder and elbow

I ve been waking up for the past few days with really bad pains in different parts of my body. It started out with my right hip feeling like it was bruised on the inside, then the next morning it was the joint in one of my fingers, and my left shoulder . The pains continue throughout the day. This morning I woke up with the inside of my right elbow really hurting. It just keeps adding on.

Hi tiamiia,
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You should not wait for the pain to subside by itself because it may be due to some serious underlying pathology which if not treated early may lead to long term negative sequelae.
Such joint pains may be due to rheumatoid arthritis, connective tissue diseases, a fleeting arthritis of rheumatic heart disease or a viral syndrome.
You should get a physical examination and get investigated by a physician of your locality.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
