In brief: Common

This is a common concern from people with mild arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, etc.
Typically it can be helped with strengthening the muscles around those joints, and continued activity. A short course of physical therapy may serve you well to teach you some exercises. For swelling, redness, warmth, or increasing pain....See your dr to rule-out more serious problems.
