In brief: Yes it can

We see people with widespread body aches.
These are usually people with fibromyalgia. Things that can make it worse include poor exercise and /or poor sleep and/or poor control of stress and psychological issues. When sleep is improved, by correctly idenifying the cause of the poor sleep and sometimes a sleep study can help, the body aches can improve. The muscle pain needs exercise!
