As we age, it's not ununusual for callcium deposits to sppear in various parts of our bodies. Usually they are not painful. It does sound like you have many painful issues which have very much impacted your life. For these reason I would suggest you be seen in a pain clinic. The doctors there may be able to cme up with a number of treatments to help get you back on your feet.
