My feet swell and so do my hands with join pain and rashes

I m 19, and I was usually active and did everything I could to keep myself healthy as a teenager. I ve had a lot of joint pain now in my shoulders, knees, and elbows.My feet also swell and so do my hands. I have had some rashes too. I often experience headaches and feel extremely tired with a lack of energy, this isn t at all normal for me. My mother and I were talking and we think I should probably get tested for lupus, because my aunt (( blood related)) also was told she had lupus when she was only 22. Do you think I should consult a doctor about this and have tests ran to be on the safe side ?
