It may be a musculoskeletal pain.

You can take analgesics like Acetaminophen or Tramadol for symptomatic relief.

If symptoms persist, better to consult an orthopedician and get evaluated.

You might require an MRI scan in that case.

My husband is 52 and very active. He works outside cutting grass and weed eating at work. He has been complaining of his ankles, elbows and shoulders hurting. Now his ankles are swollen to the size of softballs and he is having a hard time walking. He is usually very energetic. The last week he has been exhausted and sleeping a lot. No fever. last night it was 77 in the house and he was cold.

Hello! I started with heel pain about a year ago. This lead to swollen ankles and I am unable to walk most days. It s that painful. My elbows, shoulders and hands also swell and hurt awful. I see swelling in the tendon area on my palms. Aleve helps a little as long as I take it 2x a day. I was given prednisone last spring for my shoulder and it does help but it s not something I want to take all the time. Doctor said arthritis but I m only 45! Help!!

I have had swelling and pain in my knees, ankles, elbows for about a month now. I can hardly bend my knees, making it very painful to sit, stand and walk. Now I m beginning to experience some soreness in my shoulders, as well. What do you think is wrong?
