Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I recommend that your mother makes an appointment with an Internal Specialist, in order him/her to take x-rays of the affected joints, as well as doing the necessary blood tests, to make a diagnosis. There are many types of Arthritis (joint pain) and therefore, it is important to make the correct diagnosis and to start with the correct treatment.
