Muscle,joint pain: When you notice muscle and joint pain that affects both upper and lower extremities or your back or a large area of your body, it is important to check with your doctor to investigate other possibilities like viral infections or other diseases that can present themselves with muscle and joint pain. A basic history and physical examination and laboratory testing can help with this evaluation.
