Brief Answer:
Connective tissue disorder

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

It is possible you have inflammatory disease like SLE, Seronegative arthritis and Connective tissue disorder.

You need to get few more investigations like CRP, Thyroid hormone levels, RA factor, ASLO, Anti dsDNA, RBS, Serum electrolytes.

Eat healthy, avoid strenuous activity. Take pain killers for now.

Kindly get these deleted and review with me.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
