Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problen I would like to tell you that please attach the prescription of your primary doctor so that I will know what medicines she is taking and type of arthritis they have labelled because treatment will be different . Only after seeing them I will be able to guide you what to do next . I feel that she is having osteoarthritis knee but still would confirm first . Also please tell if she is having swelling also over her knees.

Take care.
