Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The description of the symptoms indicate the possibility of inflammatory joint disorder.

The causes include rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus , psoriatic arthritis, seronegative arthritis.

You might consult a rheumatologist for an examination and evaluation with necessary tests to diagnose the probable cause.

In the mean time, use of NSAIDs, like Advil or Motrin, Heat application and stretch exercises might be helpful.

I hope this helps.
