Thanks for writing to us.
From the symptoms that you have described, it seems that you are having an advanced arthritis with considerable limitation of the movements. You need disease modifying drugs after consulting a rheumatologist for treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
