Hi Julie,
How are you? I'm sorry to hear about the symptoms that you mentioned especially the pain. What medications are you presently taking? The symptoms may be due to different conditions ( gastrointestinal, neurologic or musculoskeletal issues) but you may benefit also from a referral to a rheumatologist. Additional diagnostic tests may need to be done. You can also try complementary and alternative medicine such as biofeedback therapy or acupuncture for pain. Take care and do keep us posted.
