thank you for providing the brief history of you.

A thorough clinical examination is advised.

As you get joint inflammation and pain it relates to weakness of the muscles leading to reduction in joint space and compression on soft tissues.

Also, during cold weather there is vasoconstriction of the blood vessels leading to reduced blood supply and venous return.

Also, fatigue occurs due to less of the oxygen supply and increase in the glycolysis cycle leading to production of lactic acid.

In my clinical practice such cases are referred to undergo physical therapy and by which the muscles become stronger, pain reduces, metabolism improves.
