In brief: Stiff joints

Joint stiffness can be caused by many things, including calcium imbalance, arthritis, thyroid conditions, dehydration, auto-immune conditions and medications.
I would seek medical evaluation of this presentation. It is not possible to get a test of all your hormones, but a good history and physical exam can identify most problems.
