Just relax, do not panic, believe in yourself and your preparation. Lack of rest, anxiety, and improper nutrition leads to such problems. Moreover prolonged stress drains nutrients out of body. Have milk fruits and almonds. Go for 15-20 min walk. Do not sit continuously for hours, after every hour take a 10 min break by walking stretching etc. Enjoy the exams do not be scared of them.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

What is her hba1c level (average blood glucose test done 3 monthly) all diabetics should get it done every 3-4 months to keep an eye on their sugar control. Sugar 260 is whether fasting or pp or random have different meaning. You need to show your mom to a good specialist. As she has to follow strict diabetic diet from diet chart. Plus regular walk 30- 45 i'm daily. Plus correct insulin injection technique. Also if tsh is 47 then she need to be on thyroxine replacement. I don't know whether she is receiving that or not. Please see nice endocrinologist in your town for her problems.

If no swelling then do hot water fomentation twice daily. Google these exercises- 1. Knee isometrics/ static quadriceps, 2. Straight leg raise, 3. Vmo strengthening, 4. Dynamic quadriceps- sitting on a chair straighten the knee and hold for 5 counts. Do all the exs 10 times and twice a day. Avoid sitting cross legged esp down on the floor. Use western toilets. If this does not help then please get the knees examined by a physiotherapist.

if you are sitting continuously for long duration, there could be swelling on the legs. when you sit keep the legs raised, that is keep them on a chair or such height. it could only be simple problem as you are young. keeping bluish spots on the fingers get your blood tested for complete blood picture and see the haemoglobin levels and get urine tested for albumin and sugar including pus cells, any abnormality come back again
