Causes for multiple joint pain ?

User Profile
I am 25 years old mother to a seven year old. I am having severe Migraines (very recently started) My body hurts all over my joints and muscles are very weak. My WBC (white blood cell) keeps going up instead of down. I am always tired and have no energy. I had a CT so nothing there and my doctor is not seeming to eager to find out what the problem is. I can't keep going like this day to day I am even starting to gain weight from always just laying around. I am normally a very hyper and full of life. PLEASE HELP I CAN'T LIVE MY LIFE LIKE THIS . do you think going to a hematologist will prove to be effective?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Apart from fibromyalgia multiple joint pain is seen in hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hasimotos thyroiditis, gout (can sometimes cause multiple joint pain), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE, electrolyte disturbance particularly those involving calcium and magnesium, parathyroid gland problems, chondrocalcinosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.

All can increase the WBC count. Most of these will also cause tiredness and fatigue. You should consult a rheumatologist for this. Hope this helps. Take care!
