After 6years of BP meds I am now getting rheumatoid arthritis; my bones are aching and a bone on the back of my hand has begun to get larger: at the end of the big thumb between the wrist and the end of thumb. what could be causing this arthritis; i am health savvy meaning that i take vitamin supplements and eat the five a day too with moderate exercise: stationary bike.
If not relieved then possibility of polyarthritis needs to be considered

There is reduced chest function in this disease. Stiffness in spine is increased do you have such stiffness in spine?
