Hi, the knuckles could be due to lymph glands, or lipoma, and they are not suggestive of any thing. The fatigue and aches may be due to infection, as you said it may be the urinary tract infection, causing systemic problems.
You may need to get the culture and sensitivity of the urine to find the organism, causing the recurent infection, and get treated accordingly. So i advise you to consult a urologist for diagnosis and treatment. Thank you.
