Traveling Pain

For the past few days and also in the past I've had times where my pain will travel from one area to another within a short amount of time. Does anyone else experience this? Pretty much most areas of my body albeit not at the same time. My head, neck, shoulders, arms, back, knees, and other parts. I don't even know what to call this but I'm sure there's a name for it. Anyone have an idea or been diagnosed with a similar issue and find relief from it besides just waiting for it to go away?

This sounds like fibromyalgia, tends to jump around to different joints. I always try to think what I did to cause the pain, usually there isn't any.
Doctors Dx this by first eliminating any other similar disease, then they test certian tender points on the body with light pressure, it it is very painful they dx for FMS.

What is your pain Diagnosis? There are several different things "painwise" that can affect different parts of the body at different times. I'll be honest, I'm not a big "throw a fibro label" on any different pain. RSD can affect differnt parts at different times. My RA effects different parts at different times all the time, and much of it is atmospheric pressure driven both outside and inside office buildings. My right elbow and forearm will be okay and I can pick up a soda and the pain shoots through my arm so intensely it takes my breath and then that elbow and lower arm are done and painful the rest of the day.

Osteo can move from 1 place to the other throughout the body. There are a couple others, but my brain is not working at this late hour. Have you talked to your Dr. about this and see what he has to say about it?

That seems to be the case but I really would like to find out for certain.

@OlderCPer
Well that's what I'm trying to find out, I already got checked for RA before and my doctor said the results came back fine so that's not the case. I have other issues as well but they're not the root cause of all this pain from what I'm told.

    I recently was told that I was no longer being prescribed my anxiety medication, but without it I feel as if I'm going to relapse into cutting again along with restricting my food to be in control again. I don't understand why this is happening. Even when I'm feeling fine and on top of the world, my anxiety kicks in and causes me to want to hurt myself or end it all.

    I was recently discharged from inpatient and everything was going great until they didn't prescribe my one anxiety med. I quickly began to fall apart, but I haven't gone back to self harming and I hope I don't because then my family and friends will all be disappointed in me once again. Without this med, my anxiety has increased and so has my depression. I just don't know what to do here, I've...
