Hi, yes I have experienced muscle pain lately. I'm coming off Effexor XR, and I have noticed as I gradually decrease the dose that my neck and shoulders, in particular, are very sore. I'm not feeling stressed, so I don't think that is the reason. I can only suppose that muscle and joint stiffness is a part of the side effects. I agree with Vincent1905, that this is a very difficult drug.
