This needs immediate exam.
Cellulitis or a blood clot can be going on in the leg.
Hard to close each hand can be for lots of reasons.
Inflamatory arthritis.
This could all tie together in heart failure, liver or kidney problems, or thyroid problems.
Sounds serious.
Go get an exam and testing.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
