User avatar Hello,
Multiple painful and stiff joints in the hands and feet warrants x-rays and blood tests for rheumatoid arthritis (rheumatoid factor, sed rate, CRP, anti-CCP, CBC).

For pain relief use NSAID's until testing is complete.

Obviously, this will be coordinated through your family physician as he/she will do a thorough history and physical to better define and treat your condition.

Take care.
