Not sure if this is the appropriate area to post, but:

I've been having joint pain in my elbows, my shoulder, and wrists. It has kept me from progressing and
I NEED to resolve it, but I feel like I've tried almost everything but going to the doctor.
I have great form, I stretch ballistic and dynamic and warmup properly (no static stretching before)
I don't limp wrist. I really think that I just have joint pain from overuse but I could be wrong.


My program(ish):
I have been lifting consistently at least 3 days a week for the past 2 years
I lift 4-5 days a week
usually heavy compound lifts sets of 6-10 reps for 4 sets
I limit my isolation exercises and in between lifting days I do yoga

What I've tried to fix it:
Epsom Salt Baths
Taking a Week off
anti inflammatory lotion
I currently take Animal Flex every day (~ 25 days)
Just started taking 4 TBS of Flax oil a day (2 days)


Edit: *This is a chronic injury as it's been awhile and has persisted and there was no singular event*

I'm 5'6- 174lbs- ~13% BF
Max Bench =265lbs (I never do my max, I use the 1rep max calculator)
Max Squat = 275lbs
Max Deadlift = 265lbs
Max Leg Press= 425lbs
BW Chinup Max= 16

Joint pain as in cartilage & bones or joint pain as in soft tissue; muscle and tendons?

I believe muscle and tendons, maybe cartilage though.

The shoulders consist mostly (it feels like) the anterior deltoid.
The elbows are front and back, when lifting a weight in a curl motion.
The wrists are posterior of the hand below the knuckles and the anterior/posterior wrist halfway up the forearm.

Does it hurt just when you lift, or all the time?

"I've tried almost everything but going to the doctor." Well, I guess you know what I think the next step should be!
