In brief: There are many kinds

Travelling pain can be pain that goes from one joint to another, which is a hall mark of rheumatic diseases.
The latin root "rheum" means "to flow" or travel. It can also be referred pain, which means the problem is in one place, e.g. The lower back, but is felt in another, e.g. The back of the leg. Fibromyalgia can be associated with travelling pain.
