Hello. How old is your wife? Does she have any medical history like rheumatoid arthritis. Would you say looking at her swelling that it is hot and warm and red, if you touch where it hurts specifically with your index finger, is it pulsatile? Get back to me to discuss this further and we can continue by chat, or I can also call you, but JA charges extra. If interested in a phone call, put your number in the offer box and a time to call if not now. Or just reply here with text and I will answer.
