Swelling and body pain

There is swelling in my mother's feet and hands(especially from the thumb to wrist area) and severe pain. It earlier started with 3 days fever. Now it's been almost a month. Can it be athritis? Nothing has been confirmed by the doctor's yet.

A good way to diffuse general body pains: 1.take a long hot bath in water in which a few cups of Epsom salts have been added. 2.If you suspect your body and pains are due to stress-get plenty of sleep and try to reduce or eliminate the cause of your stress. 3.Meditation, deep breathing and yoga.

It can be a case of Tenosynovitis or Arthritis but can be diagnosed after proper examination and investigations. So consult the nearest Ortho-Surgeon where you can follow up easily and You have faith on him. God bless her.
