Your mother has multiple joint pain, esp. in the knees.
This can be due to arthritis of aging, or due to inflammation of joints (can be due to high uric acid, rheumatoid,etc.)
You need to consult either an Orthopaedic surgeon or a Rheumatologist, who will examine her thoroughly and ask for Xrays and blood tests.
Het further treatment will depend on the results of these tests.
