This is Dr. David

you should see a doctor about this

and get full blood testing for complete blood counts and complete metabolic panel
and thyroid hormone levels
and ferritin, iron levels, B12, vitamin D, magnesium levels.

and you should get blood tests for rheumatoid factor and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibodies to check for rheumatoid arthritis,

do you have a doctor you can see who can do some of these tests for you?
