Dear lybrate-user. I think you have a referred pain from spine. It is unusual to have pain for so long and it will not show up locally if there is some local cause. You need detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Once diagnosis is made we can treat you accordingly.

Numbness in hands especially numbness that is relieved by shaking hands vigorously or wringing hands can suggest carpal tunnel syndrome. If, in addition, she really has tingling in the legs then other conditions including thyroid problems, b12 deficiency, and paraneoplastic problems etc need to be ruled out. In my experience usually these turn out to be two different problems (carpal tunnel + back arthritis, neck + back arthritis etc)

Ankle and pain in other joints in older females can be due to many causes most commonly Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and can be associated with Osteoporosis and Vitamin D Deficiency. Need to investigate her before starting proper treatment. If the joints are not swollen and not associated with pain in fingers or morning stiffness then usually indicate OA. Better get an X Ray and for heel pain start following treatment 1. Vitamin D Supplements along with calcium 2. Hot water fomentation using salt water 3. Ankle exercises can be done in hot water at the same time 4. Heel raise and soft footwear Consult with X Rays if needed
