Hi there.

It is very hard to evaluate through this medium regarding the exact nature of these sores.  These are most commonly due to musculoskeletal strain brought about by stress.  Also, a condition called fibromyalgia can present with multiple sore areas which can be compatible with your presentation.

The irregular periods may be a complication of your treatment especially if you have received chemotherapy for your disease.  This is likely to normalize after a few months but if persistent, this may have to be evaluated by your gynecologist.

I would suggest that you have this examined by your doctor as there can be a lot of possibilities.

Regards.
