In brief: Swelling/arthritis

Some types of arthritis are associated with swelling in the joints including four and rheumatoid arthritis.
However, it usually does not include the whole limb.

In brief: Yes, at times

Acute arthritis attacks cause pain and in doing so immobility.
Our movements help keep our extremities from swelling....So an attack can lead to some swelling if associated with immobility.
