Pain in the knee can also be the reason of chronic joint pain. Taking the whole weight of the body there might be the case that the joint may have become damaged.

Inflammation

If you have recently met an accident and you have been feeling pain in the joints, then most probably the reason might be that the joints have become inflamed creating redness in the injured area. If this is the case then first try treating them at home by anti-inflammatory or ice-pack.
