Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
After going through history of your mother, she is suffering from Polyarthritis she needs to consult Internal medicine specialist or Rheumatologist and usually causes are Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis or some kind of connective tissue disorder.
She also had Thyroid issues which could be autoimmune in origin so a good work up is required treatment depends on exact diagnosis.
If severe osteoarthritis is there apart from medical treatment total knee replacement can really help to get over pain.
If other type of arthritis is there there are good treatment available so please take care and do not ignore her health.
I can not comment about ayurvedic treatment.
Please take care.
Good Luck.
