My son is 1 year old, and since having him I have experienced a dull-like constant ache in my legs. This has progressively worsened, however never to more than a 2/10 pain. The issue is more that it is constant and now in my arms too. I also get a tingling sensation in my feet and hands from time-to-time. My knees, lower legs and arms also feel weak.

I had bloods take and prescribed vitamin b12 injections are a result of a slight deficiency. These haven't made a difference. More blood tests next weak.

Any ideas what this could be? My GP seems rather perplexed, and I am left wondering if it is the result of lifting/carrying about my son.

Ahh too many errors!

I should also mention, with regards to the weakness, my GP tested and no issues evident.

Vitamin B12 deficiency can be due to an autoimmune disease 'pernicious anaemia' so you need antibodies checking (though not 100% accurate so a negative result is not conclusive.)
Also could be fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue - they include the symptoms you describe.
Some of the best advice going is on forums that specialise in these specific illnesses.
