Swelling legs, face

It had started before five years, first my mother had got the swelling and etching on her all nails cuticles. Later it has got transfer into blanking and rigidness of nails. In order to cure this we have shown her to homeopathic doctor but instead of getting relief all her nails (palm and tow) had became black in color. While we were taking this treatment for this the new problem pops up that is continues cough and watery nose which is continuing till now as well and recently she has got very bad swelling in her both the legs. All the necessary test has been carried out (Like, Blood, Urine, sonography) but all results were within proper limits except the TSH which was slightly higher than the normal level and for which treatment is going on. Now she is having swelling on her face and legs. Doctor was telling all this are consequences of menopause but i dont foresee this all. please clarify.
