What caues swelling in hands and legs? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
Hi, my mother is suffering from legs and hands swelling. When she sits by bending in knees after a while her legs swells and she feels a pain in legs and knees. In case of hands when she does even a small amount of household works her hands swells.
She is 47 years old.
I would like to know few more things before advising you
Since when is she observing these symptoms?
last couple of years
she had tried several treatments but didnt work for her
currently she is undergoing ayurvedic medication
What did the doctor diagnose the condition as?
Well they told its because of old age
Did you see an Orthopedician?
nope, need your advice regarding the same.
Were any investigations done?
Any family history of similar symptoms?
no she is not.
The swelling is only observed in joints and no other regions?
she feels pains in joints
but swelling on legs
The pain in joints is present throughout the day or observed in morning and decreases as the day passes?
it is through out the day whenever she walks or does some legs movement
Thanks for the details
oh no problem
But need to differentiate the type of arthritis.
For this X ray of the joints with few blood tests like sr calcium, vit D3, sr phosphate and RA factor is required.
I would advise you see an Orthopedician who will advise all the above along with general health checkup for liver and kidney conditions.
ok, do you suggest any hospital in Pune?
I practise in XXXXXXX so would be difficult to suggest a hospital in XXXXXXX But any multispeciality hospital would do.
Alright, thank you so much for the advice!
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
