Hand swelling problem

My mother's right hand is swelling, she is suffering for 3 years. We were consulting a number of hospitals. They specified cervical spondylitis c5 c6, they told me it doesn't have any result. The left side of the hand and upper arm size seems big. Please give me a solution.

Hand swelling is generally not a neurologic problem. Cervical spine issues can cause pain, numbness, and weakness, but if there is swelling you should go see a rheumatologist or vascular specialist.
Great question! There are over 100 types of arthritis that can cause joint pain and swelling, so to further determine what type you might have, you need further evaluation. Historically, key blood tests and X-rays will likely need to be done, too. In either case, I would advise you to follow up with a rheumatologist for further evaluation, as there can be many different causes for your symptoms and it should be evaluated by a healthcare professional.
