    Answer:

    D. Rheumatoid arthritis

    Explanation:

    Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disease that affects the synovial membranes (thin layer of connective tissue) of multiple joints (hands, wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, cervical spine) and internal organs such as lungs, heart and kidneys (for this reason the individual may have fatigue, fever and weight loss) of genetically predisposed individuals. The progression of the condition is associated with deformities and changes in the joints, which may compromise the movements.

    Ken demonstrates these symptoms, so we can state that he may be suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
