Swelling of feet and hands. Ankles and Knees in pain.?
Hello I'm 19 years old 6'3 and about 270 pounds. I've gone to the clinic and thus required two kinds of medications for Anemia. Prednisone 50MG Ferrous Sulfate 325MGTaking the Prednisone 50MG completely removed all the symptoms yet once of the pill they slowly started to come back. Here is a list of the symptoms.1. My hands and feet get pretty swollen up sometimes I can't even move my fingers. When my feet get swollen it's hard to walk as I feel awkward and unbalanced.2. My knees and ankles hurt real bad when I walk, stand down and stand up from the bed, chair etc. 3. I get small red dots on my hands, feet, arm, and thighs. They are not itchy whatsoever and some have been increasing when I pressure my body to much. Before I went to the clinic I was out with friends at midnight. After walking for a couple of hours (ankles and knees hurt and couple of fingers swollen up) I went home and took of my sock and noticed that my small red dots have increased 4x the size.4. My hands and feet as well my joint pain mostly happens at night and decreases on morning and during the day almost no swollen or pain whatsoever.5. Lately I've been discovering during night (when my joints ache and my feet/hands get swollen) that there is weird looking ball-like on around my knees, legs, and elbows. I've felt a bigger ball-like on my thighs too. Most of the time they are gone when I wake up thought. It's strange since how they feel when I touch my skin. :DThat's pretty much i. I'm going back to the clinic in 3 days but I really want an answer from someone experienced in this kind of stuff. I was thinking of first it was a kind of Arthritis since most of symptoms seem to match. I'm really starting to doubt it's Anemia since the Iron supplement hasn't even shown to help me. I will talk more to the doctor if it can be arthritis or any other inflammation diseases.Thanks for any help I can get :DEdit: I've been experiencing this for almost 2 months.

about it you can get information from here
You should try freeing up your back muscles to see what happens then. With everything else flowing through those muscles it's easy to have something tight to press on something else to cause the problem in your arms and legs. If nothing else you will know it's not caused by anything in your trunk area, that it is more to the arms and legs themselves. Here's how to free up your back muscles to do that:Back: (do from a sitting position)Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side. For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.

What is Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. This is followed by chronic inflammation of the joint lining. Healthy cartilage is a cushion between the bones in a joint.
