Hi kat.woodward,
Thank you for your question and for joining EmpowHER.
Are you taking any pain relievers for your stiffness and pain? Are you on any other medications? You may want to give your doctor a call and have them check your uric acid levels and see if you have some kind of arthritis or other condition.
For more information, check out this information so you can better advocate for your own health:
Arthritis Advocacy Sheet
Good luck and let us know what you find out.
