Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community, but you must contact your primary care physician.

How old are you? Have you been diagnosed with any medical conditions, such as arthritis or cardiac disease? Are you currently taking any medications? Have you recently had an insect bite or tried an new food or medication?

The swelling appears to be in your joints-wrist, hands, knees, feet and legs. This along with pain could indicate arthritis.

Is the pain constant? Does it increase with activity? Is it worse in the morning or evening?

When did the symptoms first start?

Regards,
Maryann
