Please HELP, does anyone knows what is wrong with my grandpa's hands?

Hello everyone,

I am new here and I am hoping to find some suggestion, advice or direction for my grand father illness

My grandfather has been diagnosed with Addison's disease for about 4 years now. He has been given Hydrocortisone for daily medication by his endorine doctor. Recently, his hands got swollen pretty bad. The whole family is pretty worried about it. This is the second time it has happened and upon consultation doctors says "he just need to move more"? We are a little unsure of this response as looking at the swollen hands we can't help thinking something must be wrong...

Thank you so much in advance.
