I can understand your concern.
Yes it could be a problem but we cannot say with just this much history.
we need a detailed history and need to do some tests also.
you can consult a orthopedician or a rheumatologist in person for further evaluation and management.

If it is started in this monsoon season then you need not to worry, this is very common in this season... If it really bothering you you must be evaluated.. Anyone can get this disease, though it occurs more often in women. Rheumatoid arthritis often starts in middle age and is most common in older people. Avoid pain killers..
Stiff joints are a common phenomenon in Monsoon/Winter, you are not alone. RA can be familial but will include more symptoms.
Many viral illness which are prevalent in this season can also cause similar symptoms.
Please visit a physician for first level check and investigations.
Pain killers will help for symptomatic relief until you see physician, long term pain killers with no diagnosis is not an option!!!
