Back, Shoulder, and Waist Pain

Hi. I am 35 years old. For the past 2 years, I have often experienced back pain where the pain is more concentrated in the neck, shoulders, shoulders and waist. Lately, I have started to feel pain in my toes and hands. To the Doctor’s knowledge, I like to make my fingers, neck, waist sound like squirming or even tell my sister to step on my body. Lately, the pain has become more and more frequent until I need to apply hot oil or use panaflex to relieve the pain and make it easier for me to sleep. Plate pain, shoulder sert in hands and feet most noticeable. Please help explain from the Doctor about this. Thank you.
