Swelling and pain in both ankle joints
It's been 3 months since this started that one of my mother's ankle joints started swelling...at first it seemed like sprain and hence the home remedies like soaking legs in hot water then massaging affected area with ointment were followed but nothing worked..then the other ankle joint also started swelling...The uric acid level in the reports was normal...whenever she stands and walks both of the ankles swell and pains a lot...other joints are normal like knee, elbow, wrist joint, etc...only the problem is with ankle joints...at present the area near the ankle joint appears swelled always and is very painful..the swelling and pain increases when she walks or stands...what might be the possible reason for this swelling and pain...what can be done..?? Thankyou.
