Terrible bone pain?

Firstly, I'm 15, I don't know if you knowing this helps.

For around 3-3 and a half weeks, I have had truly awful pain in my bones. At first I thought it was 'growing pains' (well that's what my mother said it was as she was telling me to shut up about it) but it doesn't feel like that and has been going on for a while.

It has woken me up several times, and has stopped me getting to sleep at a normal time nearly every night.

It started out in my arms and legs, with a constant ache, and sometimes random sharp, stabbing pain to top it off. If it's worse when I'm in bed, I've noticed that putting pressure on the particular bone (arm, for example, yes?) makes it hurt more. Sometimes - but not all the time - it hurts more at my joints too. Now it's in all these other bones too...

The bones this pain is in are: legs, (all bones) arms, (all bones, inc. hands and fingers), lower back, shoulders, jaw, hips (one more than the other) and my ribs and collar bones. Uh, most of them really, then.

Since Saturday, I have been taking paracetamol as many times as you can, and this hasn't helped at all. On Friday I am going to the doctor's, I'm asking about people's opinions here because I am going out of my mind with this pain, and would appreciate any thoughts.

I have some other symptoms too. I have been feeling generally ill lately, dizzy and sick. I have a liver condition called Gilbert's syndrome, which is asymptomatic in some people, but affects me a lot, and most of the time sickness and sometimes dizziness can be attributed to this, but lately my sickness medication has not been shifting the nausea. I have been actually vomiting recently too, that is rare for me. I have also been very tired lately, but this can also be put down to Gilbert's.
This bit is gross, sorry, but also sometimes after I have been to the toilet there is blood on the tissue, and also my gums bleed every time I brush my teeth, even though I brush my teeth every day.
I also have hypermobility (I score 9/9 on the scale, LOL.) and I know that joint aches can be a symptom of this, but it doesn't mention bone pain and I don't think this can be put down to that.

Any help/ideas whatsoever are very much appreciated, honestly. I have been Googling some of these things, but Google tends to come out with the worst case scenario, and has only served to make me feel worse through worrying. Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings. :)
