Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your symptoms.

When was the late time you had a general physical exam with your physician? If you have not been seen since the body ache and stiffness began, please call to schedule an appointment.

How old are you? Do you have any medical conditions, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia?

A person with generalized aches and pains has discomfort in multiple areas of the body. Usually, the discomfort is most prominent in the muscles and joints. Aches and pains are common during viral infections, such as colds. Generalized aches and pains are one of the most common symptoms of influenza. Additional common causes for aches and pains include exercise, stress, depression, and drug side effects.

Symptoms of generalized aches and pains depend on the underlying cause. Symptoms may include muscle aches, muscle tenderness, and muscle cramps. Those with generalized aches and pains may also experience joint pains, joint stiffness, neck pain, and back pain.

Treatment for generalized aches and pains depends on the underlying cause.
