Nerve pains: The fact that this has been occurring for 2 months suggests a medical,work up is needed. Either high spinal cord (neck area) or brain would be suspected to be involved when the whole body is involved like this, or a peripheral nerve disease caused by thyroid, vitamin lack or pathology such as Diabetes. Please discuss with your FP or request a neurological consult. Good luck
