    Hi Priscilla,

    Pain can mean any number of things and it's impossible for me to give you any suggestions based on such a general question. Have you been diagnosed with a medical condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis? Do you have any other symptoms associated with the pain, such as swelling or heat in the joint, fatigue, fevers? Is the pain in the joint or your muscles?Knowing more about your symptoms would enable me to give you better advice.

    However, pain is usually also a sign that something isn't right, so I would recommend that you go see your primary care physician and talk to them about the problem. Even if I did know him more about what's going on in your life, I would still recommend that you see your doctor.

    Good luck! Please let us know what happens.
