Brief Answer:
It is possible due to arthritis

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

it is possible that this may be due to arthritis, as it is related to the musculoskeletal system.
I advise you to check your crp also, and tests for arthritis like rheumatoid factor and anti CCP.
it would be a good idea to see your rheumatologist to check for any swelling and tenderness also.
till that time anti inflammatory medication is fine.
