In brief: Lots of symptoms

Flu? Do you have any history of autoimmune disease such as lupus or any type of migratory arthropathy? Is there any history of gout? Have you been exposed to tick borne illnesses or a area endemic to tickborne illness is? Do you have any infections, rashes, skin lesions? Do you have weakness or numbness in any extremity?

In brief: Multi-joint pain

This should be evaluated by your primary care physician with basic xrays and possibly a rheumatology consult.
A series of labs to rule out several different joint disease possibilities would be helpful.
