Hi darsh

If you haven't yet had these done, you should consider having a complete, general medical evaluation with your internist or family doctor, and if this fails to uncover anything, a psychiatric evaluation; these might help to suggest possible causes to your pain. Pain conditions can sometimes be associated with psychiatric conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, people with trauma histories, and what are called somatization disorders. Of course, many medical conditions can cause generalized pain such as yours. Get yourself thorough evaluations before you reach any conclusions, though. Good luck!
