My symptoms: arthritis in right hand, left foot, and neck; ankles sore when sitting on for a while, sharp outer chest pain. Are these connected?

In brief: It's possible

You have "asymmetric" arthritis.
There are some systemic illnesses that can cause this. Gout comes to mind. Osteoarthritis is another. Consultation with a rheumatologist would lead to an accurate diagnosis.
