Hi!
Since you have had years of anorexia, these aches and pains can be due to low iron, hemoglobin, vitamin B12, vitamin D or electrolyte deficiency. Please ask your doctors to test for this. Since you have started eating (and kudos for that!), slowly increase your physical activity level. Start slow so that you do not tire easily. This will also help build your stamina. Eat healthy so that adequate nutrients reach your body. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
