Any # of things: Joint pain can result from a number of different reasons. I would seek the attention of an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. One in your area can be found at www.Aofas.Org.

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.
