Arthritis: Morning stiffness for >20min is associated with Rheumatoid arthritis.Most common cause of painful joints is vit D deficiency,especially if your hands is weaker that usual. Other cause is gout arthritis. Vit D 1000IU/d required. If you have morning stiffness, you need to do bloodtests.Pain worse at night with pins and needles, need to test for carpal tunnel syndrome
