Brief Answer: MRI will help in diagnosis. Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case with diligence. As per your history there is possibility of polyarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis may involve small joints and early morning stiffness in joints, does she have such complain? Ankylosing spondylitis typically involve spine and hips with other large joint also. There is reduced chest function in this disease. Stiffness in spine is increased do you have such stiffness in spine?
