RA : Symmetrical stiffness of small joints of hands wrists fingers and feet raise concerns regards early rheumatoid arthritis which in addition causes extreme fatigue and swelling of above mentioned joints. Diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis is made on clinic exam followed by blood tests and x-rays which may or may not show changes in early stages. Consult a rheumatologist.
