Probably autoimmune: This is highly suspicious for autoimmune disease such as Rheumatoid Arthritis or Lupus; you need to see a Dr. for testing to further diagnose. Even if it's this conventional medicine offers inadequate/only symptomatic treatment so see an integrative Dr. for treatment.Autoimmune diseases are triggered by chronic infections/environmental toxins.
