By any chance are you taking any statin drugs. I ended up with terrible joint pain when I was on them. My doctor kept telling me it was the flu, but when the flu went away and the joint pain inceased I knew something else was wrong. At first I thought it was Fibromyalgia because I know a lot of Diabetics get it. But with some research I found the connection to statins. Now my joints are about 95% better.
