AOA, I am writing regarding my mother s body condition. She s too over weight and has swelled up body.. specially her legs, thighs and hips.She always complains about pain in her legs. She never used to be like this. We have taken her everywhere in Pakistan where ever we felt we can get her treated but it did not work. If you can please suggest us something , it really will be appreciated . Regards, Raheel Raghib. (Kohat, KPK)

having over weight suddenly will cause leg pain ...perhaps due to arthritis.if treated systematically she ll reduce the weight and can return to normalcy.Steroid or other pain killers if given regularly will worsen the situation..she may be subjected for Ayurvedic therapies in India if possible.
