Bone pain since I was a child...

User Profile
Hello... I am a 27 years old Female, caucasian from Portugal.
I am really concerned about something. Since I was a very young child I had these bone pains on my legs (minus the joints) that actually feel kinda like a massage, when I was little I thought it was just "growing bone pain" as many people in my country call it. The problem is that the pain never stopped reappearing, every year it comes back and now in different places and stronger, I can't even step my foot out of the bed with tranquillity because this pain is starting not to feel like a massage anymore, a bit more intense than that. I now have in my legs and arms/hand... I searched and searched and it is not normal in fact for "growing bone pain" to still be a thing when you are already an Adult and I never grow in height btw. I am still 1,68 CM since I was 15. This pain occurs like 4 times a year or more.

Thank you for the attention and to try to make me come up with theories if what this might be. Of course I will be looking for a doctor who can xray me. But I had xrays before and nobody noticed anything wrong.
