Thanks for posting your query.

Joint pains and swelling of feet at your age can be due to multiple causes at this age the commonest being poly arthralgia. Other causes can be rheumatoid arthritis, gout, inflammatory diseases like SLE, bursitis, fibromyalgia, etc.

For proper diagnosis, some of the blood tests are advisable like-
1. Serum calcium levels.
2. Serum Uric acid levels.
3. RA (Rheumatoid arthritis)factor
4. ESR and CRP (C-reactive protein)
5. Serum Creatinine
6. X-ray of affected joints.

You need a thorough clinical examination followed by investigations under the guidance of an orthopedician.

Till then for symptomatic relief, you can take over the counter analgesics, do hot fomentation and apply local analgesic gel on the affected areas.
