In brief: Need tests,,,

These symptoms are characteristic of an inflammatory autoimmune type joint disease, most likely lupus.
It might be another kind like rheumatoid, or part of an autoimmune syndrome like scleroderma. But there is little or no way of knowing without tests for antibodies, like ana, to find out what this is, so it's wise to see your doctor for tests and an exam. Best of luck.
