Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your Mom needs a detailed physical examination and a repeat X-ray, to determine the nature and cause of her recent symptoms. The possibilities could be an osteoarthritis (damage and inflamation of the joints) or a ligament or lemniscal injury (damage to the soft tissues in the joint).

It is very difficult to pin-point a diagnosis without a proper physical examination. I would advise you to take her to an orthopedician for a detailed evaluation and for planning furher treatment. If she is overweight, then reducing weight will also help in decreasing the pain.

Wish you all the best.
