I don't know if this will help or not.  Muscle pain feels like if you have strained or pulled a muscle kind of like when working out excessively, lifting too much or shoveling snow/gardening.  It is more of an acute burning sensitivity.  Bone pain feels as if your bones are caught in a meat grinder.  It is a deep throbbing disintgrating ache, like a tank has run over you a few times and then parked on you. Muscle pain can also be tender to the touch, whereas bone pain is too deep.

That does help a lot.  Would bone pain hurt with movement?  ie to lift something heavy up over head?

Typically, if mine worsens due to something I am doing , it is due to muscle or tendon pain, not bone.  Tendons can also be very sore at their insertion point into the joint which some people mistake for bone/joint pain.  This is also kind of a deep throbbing ache that sharpens when the joint/muscle is used.
