See a rheumatologist: You need to be evaluated by a rheumatologist for an appropriate diagnosis and probable treatment.

Evaluation: At 19 years old, what you are describing is unusual. I am concerned that you could be having some type of rheumatic process or polyarthropathy. I would recommend an evaluation by a hand surgeon or a rheumatologist as soon as possible.
