In brief: Unknown
Rheumatoid arthritis is usually a more symmetrical disease with multiple small joints affected.
The more common condition, osteoarthritis, is more typical of your pattern. However, there are other important factors such as a detailed history and a physical examination that are necessary for an accurate diagnosis in your case.

In brief: OA more likely
The RA unless already established previously, is less likely than the plain old degenerative joint disease/ osteoarthritis - have a medical dr or a rheumatologist look at it.
