Thanks for asking.

There are many possibilities for these symptoms, as you appreciate these are vague features, which can be present in many diseases, out of all the common reasons can be:

Anemia (less blood) reasons can be nutritional, blood loss, chronic illness like liver and renal dysfunction

Rheumatoid arthritis - leading to swelling of hands and tiredness
Other connective tissue disorders
Thyroid disturbances

I think you need to consult a doctor to arrange for some blood tests, as the conclusion can be drawn only after the required investigations and the examination.

Thanks, please let me know if you need further help.
