Back Pain And Heat Radiating To The Arms And Knees?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. My mother has been sick for a long time around her back, upper arms and knees. My mother is also having trouble sleeping. They say his back hurts and feels hot. If you sleep on your left or right side, your arm hurts. I have taken it to the doctor at the hospital. He said it was normal because of his age. My mother was given medicine. But the pain disappeared briefly and reappeared. I was confused and sorry to see my mother’s condition. Do I have to do a doctor? Thanks.
