I am actually concerened about my b/f

he is actually working 6 days this week and his job is stressing him out to the point that he is hurting all over
every muscle in his body hurts
i told him he needs to go to the doctor and have a checkup and see what the doctor says
was i wrong in that?

It seems that your boyfriend needs to lead a healthier lifestyle. The human body has its limits. Too much stress (both physical and mental) render the body's immunity less effective. This can lead to all sorts of disease.
Please advise him to exercise, even if once a week. You could take long walks together. I am not about to tell you the hazards of smoking which I am sure both of you are aware of.
If his symptoms continue or increase at any stage he should consult a physician.
