What causes swelling on shoulder, hands and face?

I hope so. I know I have artritis in some joints. My question is how come my left leg from just above my knee down and my right shoulder and hands and face swell when I am laying down at night anf most of it goes away in the day except for my left leg and knee

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that this is not the arthritis but this could be non specific kind of symptoms and this is nothing to worry this might be age related symptoms but you have not mentioned your age and gender else I would have given some advise, take care and have a nice day.
