Hand Bruising

I'm not sure if it's arthritis or not.
I have had general achiness and pain in my left hand for about 2 weeks.  I attribute it to the onset of arthritis.  I am 45 years old, female, overweight (by about 50 lbs).  The problems is, I have bruising and discoloration on my knuckles but I haven't hit my hand anywhere.  It started with the baby finger and it was a very purplish bruise and only around the middle knuckle to the end of the finger.  It went away in 2-3 days.  Then the middle bottom (closest to the hand) of my middle finger has turned very purple/blue/yellow in 1 day.  I have not injured it.  The left hand aches quite a bit.  There is puffiness and swelling in the knuckle areas of the rest of the fingers, but it's only the knuckles closest to the hand, not the entire finger.
