The cause for the pain can be due to the fact that she is on her feet the whole day. I do however, suggest that she consults a doctor to exclude a vascular reason for her pain, as well as a neuropathic cause. She should be examined thoroughly and blood tests will have to be done to exclude diabetes militus, vitamin B12 deficiency, as well as hypothryroidism. It will be wise for her to take short breaks of approximately 20 minutes, in order to elevate her feet, to lesson the swelling and pain.

Unfortunately, I am unable to suggest any medication, as it is imperative that she examined.
