Thank you for your question, in my opinion these symptoms can be due to arthritis and connective tissues disease like SLE. your doctor needs to get blood tests including RA factor, ANA and DsDNA antibody test. In most cases this pain needs high dose pain killers like diclofenac and ibuprofen with our without steroids.
