Why do my arms and feet get tired easily ?

I ve noticed after my last baby now 2 years old, hands not as strong as they used to be. Sometimes have problems opening a bottle of water. Wake up with sore knuckles. When I read a book, hold my phone to check messages, on computer with barely any typing; just scrolling page, my hand begins to feel very achy and tired. My arms also fall asleep easily if I sleep with my arms up. My feet also tire very easily and last a while feeling very achy. This has been going on for a while but seems to be more frequent. Could it be Rheumatoid Arthritis? Tested high on ANA a few years back.
