Do you consume caffeine or alcohol? Your muscles may just be dehydrated from all the exercise. Make sure you drink at least 2 liters of water every day. I would do this for a couple of weeks while eliminating caffeine and alcohol just to see if it makes a difference. It sounds like you're overexerting yourself. Take a break from it for a while and let your body repair itself before you do some irreversible damage if you haven't already.
