Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Fairy. Here are my thoughts but you need to see a doctor to check this out. First would be low thyroid. It could also be a kidney problem with low protein. Finally--although this isn't very likely, it could be the beginning signs of rheumatoid arthritis. You need to see a doctor and get blood work to check for all of that
