Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You haven't mentioned your age. Do you have any stiffness in your backbone as well. You could be having symptoms of a connective tissue disorder arthritis like Rheumatoid arthritis which typically presents as joint stiffness and pain in the morning and gets relieved on moving the joints. Joint swelling will not usually be seen in early stages. It is better to consult a Rheumatologist/Orthopaedician to get evaluated completely and get appropriate treatment.
