with your history you might be having some kind of neuro muscular disorder,
like myasthenia gravis or mitochondrial disease like Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy .
you should undergo thorough physical examination to rule out any disease.
if you have any disease related to mitochondria or muscle, you have to take proper treatment
take care. i hope i answer your query

Thanks for your question.

Before I come to a diagnosis,I need to ask certain questions:

What is your age and occupation?
Which joints are involved?
Is joint stiffness maximum in the morning?
Do the the joint stiffness aggrevate or relieve with rest?
Are you on any medications?
Any history of trauma?

Untill we confirm a diagnosis you can have following medications:
Stool softner

Kindly answer the questions as soon as possible.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
