feet hurt when I walk and my hands hurt when I make a fist

I am a 22 year old female and have been experiencing joint pain in my hands and feet for the past 2 weeks. It started out in just my right hand so I thought maybe I was just sleeping on it funny but now the pain is in my feet also. It seems worse in the mornings but it persists throughout the day. The pain isn't unbearable but my feet hurt when I walk and my hands hurt when I make a fist. I have no idea what this could be from or if I should be concerned? Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the joint pains in your extremities without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. If the symptoms have been persistent, and if you are not having relief with over the-counter medications and rest etc, then you should consider visiting your doctor/neurologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. If needed, and if neurological evaluation turns out to be normal, an opinion from orthopedic surgeon would also help to rule out joint related issues. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. Consider being in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating doctor and report any abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
