Thank you for your prompt reply.
The pain is mainly in the upper arm and is tender when pressed (when blood pressure monitor is applied). As I said before, the pain in the left arm is more severe (the same side as the fractured hip).
She she only has mobility in her hands due to the severe pain in her arms. It could either be in the muscle or the bones but doesn't appear to be in the joints.
She is not on any chronic medication and only take a low dose blood pressure tablet.
I am leaving now to go the hospital so won't be available to answer further questions until later.
Thank you for your help.
Thank you for that information.
The hospital have taken x-rays of both arms and my mother has had her operation for her fractured hip. Hopefully the problem with her arms will be addressed when she has made a recovery from the operation.
Thank you again for your help.
Just to let you know I reviewed you advice and response as excellent.
As as postscript - my mother's x-rays of her arms reveal that both are fractured and as with her hip, there is no explanation for either!
I am very reluctant to allow her to have further operations as I really don't think she would survive.
Thank you again.
