Painful joins and swelling feet


We visited a female patient aged 59, and taking ARVs treatment. We asked her for how long was she taking treatment and told us that it is 4 years. She complained of painful joins and swelling feet and told us that she is not working and depending on neighbours.

We advised her to elevate her feet on a pillow to reduce the swelling of feet, and gave her painkillers and to practise passive exercise. We promised her a food parcel the following week, and we encouraged her to continue with treatment, and prayed for her.
