In brief: Need eval

I would first get full clinical eval with blood test (including esr, rheumatoid factor) and xrays - then try a combination of anti-inflamatories such as advil/motrin in conjuction with exercise regimen that includes stretching.
There are different types of arthritis so make to have a complete evaluation first.
