    There are many causes of joint pain. The most important thing for you, is probably to establish whether the pains are caused by something individual to each joint (Like your walking pattern or your work causing pain in the knee, for example?), or are they part of a general inflammatory condition which is attacking specific or random joints around your body.
    It would be difficult to assess this yourself but your GP should be able to help. You may feel awkward feeling you just have a long list of aches and pains, but if you explain your concerns about these ‘attacks’ a simple blood test will easily rule out whether the different pains are connected. If they are, early treatment really reaps rewards.

    I echo Kerry. 

    Joint and bone pain can unfortunately be due to a multitude of causes. 

    The first point of call would be your primary health care practitioner who will take a further history and point you in the right direction to take the next step.
