numbness pain in extremities

its been happening over the course of some weeks. I have pains throughout my hands and in the joints now random parts of my arms are hurting more. Some lower back and shoulder pain . I have bloodwork  results in a week but the pain seems worse every day and while I'm still breathing I worry every day gets worse and I'm both in pain and not taking action. My insurance covers emergency services, when is it an emergency?

Its Peripheral Neuropathy plus musculoskeletal pain. Do you have Diabetes? You are probably better off finding a neurologist for 300 dollars than an ER visit of 1500+ but if you are in that much pain, go to the ER.

Myofascial Pain Syndrome is a possibility. Anxiety is a good bet too.
