Multiple joint pain: and swelling without previous trauma can be a sign of polyarthralgia caused by rheumatoid arthritis or lupus syndrome, along with PMR and a host of other rheumatological diseases. It can also be articular gout. Please see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.
