In brief: Many possibilities

For the pain you describe- most of them benign.
Health anxiety is epidemic in the population between 18 and 30 years old. In fact your peers worry more about health than the baby boomers, most over 60. No one knows why this generation has such a high prevalence of anxiety about health. Best thing for you to do is see your doctor and ask about the pain you are having.
