    Hello mamamarisha, it's lovely to meet you and I am glad you have found us. We cannot diagnose you as we are not doctors, I think you need to go and see your GP and ask for his opinion about what is happening with you. If it is something like RA or another auto-immune arthritis then he must refer you to a theumatologist, they are the ones with the knowledge and expertise to help. Please go and see him, tell him your list of symptoms and let us know how you get on, yes? I wish you well. DD
