I often have joint/muscle pains, and I am wondering if they're all separate issues, or if there could be a condition that is causing it all. I have chronic tendonitis in both wrists. The pain comes and goes. Can get to the point where turning a doorknob is painful. I get shooting pains in my fingers. My knees hurt on and off and are weak. I often have trouble raising up from a crouched position and have to pull myself up with my arms. My achilles tendons get very sore and stiff, worst in the morning. I have had to crawl to the bathroom because it hurt too much to walk. I've also had painful arches. Sometimes I sleep wrong on my neck and am in excruciating pain, unable to turn my head fully for a few days. I recently got SIRVA from a flu shot, and have pain in my shoulder/neck as a result for 5 months. Sometimes my hips hurt or feel weak on the inside of the joint. I notice it when I get in and out of the car. I did once possibly tear something in my hip. Could these be related?

I also would like to include that I have jaw pain issues as well. I am only 28, and have been having these issues for the past 10 years. I would just like to know if there could be something greater causing these issues, as it feels like there always seems to be sometbing hurting.
