Sounds an awful lot like fibromyalgia, hard to diagnose...but no matter what the cause may be, try cutting out red meat and pork and artificial sweeteners (I do believe they are detrimental to the health), also (if possible), cut out candy, pastries and soft drinks. Eat lots of grapefruit and grape juice, fruit, veggies and salads with olive oil, soy products. If you are able to keep a diet like this for at least three months, maybe the pains will abate, and then it would give you a pointer as to some of the possible causes of the ‘rust' in your joints. Good body therapy and/or detox regimens along with this should help tremendously. If they don't help, well then, you've at least eliminated that as a suspect. Good luck...
