circulation issues?

wondering if my symptoms, together, mean anything.  I'm a 50-year-old male, a little overweight but fairly active (I play soccer once a week or so).  I've had asthma my entire life, pretty easily managed with meds before I exercise and otherwise not too intrusive.  My joints are very stiff--I'm extremely stiff after I've been sitting and feel like a 90-year-old man when I try to get up after sitting on the floor.  From what I gather, the symptoms don't seem to indicate arthritis.  I have rashes on my feet and hands that don't seem to heal, and a couple of my toenails are discolored.  I have heart disease in my family.  And I have gum disease, which I've read is linked to heart disease.

Could these things, together, be signs of early heart disease?  or a circulatory disease of some kind?
