Hello there... you should definately go in for blood test first to find out heamoglobin

Calcium,vit d3,B12,HLA b27(RA factor)....also at this age a routine screening of Thyroid should be done along with xrays for knee & wrist

Pain killers & conventional physiotherapy would give symptomatic & temporary relief....the actual reason for joint pains should be found out first.

Regards & take care.

Advice... Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold). Back Pain. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily. Bhujang asana.

Hello.... She seems to have multiple joint pain.... Which could be because of many reasons ranging from rheumatoid arthritis to osteoarthritis to high urea content..... Proper evaluation is necessary before something is suggested.... Please visit an orthopaedic consultant for further clinical evaluation....
