May be PMR: Or poly myalgia rheumatica. You can be diagnosed with a blood test and treated with cortisone pills. It would be important to get checked soon, as if it isn't treated, it can also cause inflammation in the arteries leading to strokes or blindness. It could be lots of other things, so you should definitely get seen.
