Thank you for writing to us.
Purple stretch marks can be an indication of Cushing's disease which is a disease in which the hormone levels are increased causing the pain and stretching you have described. See a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis.
This is nothing to be shy about and if you are, you can see a female Doctor for help.
