What causes backache along with pain and inflammation in the knees?

For many years I have been treated for arthritis. Today my doctor after taking blood tests said that I did not have that condition. What conditions cause back pain, clogging head, knee pain. Also inflamation of knees. The tests that I took show that I have raynauds. I also have dry eye and am being treated with restisis. Thank you for your help.

i have had some back pain for weeks and now the pain will run down my left leg on the outside of my thigh and into my knee. is worse after I get up from sitting or in a position for awhile. after I take 10-15 steps it subsizes but the lower back pain remains. on a scale of 10; the back pain is 3-4 and the pain in leg is 7-8 at first. I moved about 6 weeks ago and moved / unloaded a number of boxes, painted walls and trim, up and down stairs and even played a little golf. I m 60 years old and since I have only been in area for about 7 weeks I have not looked for a doctor yet.

My wife is experiencing severe pain that runs along her spine in the middle of her back. Hurts constantly, but worse when laying down. OTC meds don t help. It s like a severe bruise, but nothing is visible and it is progressively getting worse. More of a dull pain, not sharp. Has brought her to tears. She is going to the chiropractor tomorrow and they will do xrays, but I think it is more than a pulled muscle. More on the boney part of the spine than to the side where I would think it would be if a muscle sprain, plus it s been three weeks and getting worse each day. She does have a little tingling in one toe, so maybe a pinched nerve? I appreciate the help and any suggestions. I m pushing her to get in with her regular doctor.

Last Sunday I woke up extremely ill. Vomiting all day long. Couldn t keep water down. The previous night I had lower back pain. Along with the vomiting I had a migraine from hell located mostly in my right eye.... But I do suffer from chronic migraine and couldn t keep any meds down. The following day it turned into diarrhea and of coarse fatigue. But ever since I am still plagued with nausea which is resolving, however there is a pain in my left side mostly under my rib cage that will not go away. And when I do go to the bathroom now I get horrible cramps prior. Is this just inflammation left over from a horrid stomach bug?
