doubtful: You are describing diffuse arthralgia. If there's visible swelling, it would be termed polyarticular arthritis. There are many causes. Some are nasty -all are treatable. Rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are just 2 examples -there are many more. You should see your family doc - you may need a rheumatologist's consultation. Good luck.
