Hello Chaky, thanks for asking.
Pain in the joint area can be caused by disorders of the joint structure, bone structure, muscle structure, or the nervous system and blood vessel system. Are your mother's symptoms accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, redness, and stiffness or difficulty moving? Some possibilities that can happen to your mother include:
osteoarthritis (inflammation of the joints due to joint degeneration, especially in the elderly)
rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to an autoimmune condition wherein immune cells attack the body's own cells)
rheumatoid gout (inflammation of the joints due to a pile of uric acid crystals)
inflammation or injury to the ligaments, tendons, or muscle fascia
inflammation of the bones or cartilage
peripheral nerve disorders that supply the knee and hand
blockage or narrowing of peripheral blood vessels
You should bring your mother to consult with an internist. Your doctor will probably do a blood test in the lab to look for possible infections. Radiological examination such as x-ray or CT-scan and MRI can also be done if the doctor feels the need. You can help your mother with warm compresses on the painful area, apply topical pain medication, take pain medication labeled green, help your mother to stretch at least 2-3 times per day. Hopefully this answer can help your mother. Regards.
