At a loss

I am a 24 year old female. I developed a bump on the back of my hand about 10 years ago and was told by the pediatrician it was nothing to worry about. A few years ago a second bump devoloped right in front of the first. The bumps are hard, do not move, and are not tender. About 4 months ago I began to have pain in the fingers of the same hand. Since then the pain has been rapidly progressing. I now experience it in both arms from the shoulders to the fingers and in both legs from the knees to the toes. I get very sharp pains in my jaw that have been causing me to grind my teeth. I've had loss of appetite, fatigue, and now painful abdominal cramping and bowel movement. I've seen 6 doctors and had a clean NCS, EMG, and MRI...blood work is pending. I just don't understand if such a wide variety of symptoms could even be related. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
