Can you experience physical pain with seasonal affective disorder? Or is that only with actual clinical depression?

In brief: Sure you can

Physical pain experience is a pretty bad symptom to suffer and it's not necessarily part of any kind of depression diagnosis - but it can become part of any mental health problem. Our most vulnerable systems tend to play a part in the expression of these problems.
If pain is your 'go to' - it will be a likely presence. Seek therapy - feel better.
