Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You may be having symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis. There will be same problem in both hands, same joints affected. Morning stiffness of the joints. Hypothyroidism is significantly more common in female patients with Rheumatoid arthritis than in women in general due to the increased association of these two conditions. Kindly visit the Rheumatologist/Orthopaedician for proper management of your condition.
