Brief Answer:
MRI scan will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The radiating pain in the hands can be due to a nerve root compression at the level of cervical spine. MRI scan of cervical spine will help. The swelling of feet can be due to arthritis or increased salt intake. You need to start with oral muscle relaxants and methylcobalamin supplements to control the shooting pain in hands. Do consult a neurologist for proper prescriptions.
The swelling of feet will reduce by keeping these elevated on two pillows while resting.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
