osteoarthritis

Now 10 years later, I have it in both shoulders, and pain when I walk, in my left arch and right ankle. Once my ring finger knuckle hurt for a year. the doc said the X-Ray showed no knuckle between the finger bones. Is this a case of disappearing joints? I've tried glucosamine chondroitin and shark cartilage but I can't see any noticeable improvements. Is there any way to resolve (aside from pain killers and drugs that have unknown or risky side affects)?
then eventually in June I was offered xrays and a CT scan which showed up slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span> in both hips. Would the osteo have caused the bursitis? Also have a burning sensation down the front of my thighs. then two months ago I started having pins and needles in my right hand quite a bit during the day. I was sent to physio but this wasn't any help at all and at present am waiting the letter from the physio direct to my doctor discharging me and suggesting what to do next.
Today I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and hip bursitis and tendonnitus in my elbow area. I've had pain in my forearm muscles and joint near my eblow for a few months.

Yesterday when it suddenly started up in my thigh, I thought enough, get to the Dr.
I have pain constantly, and it never eases off at all, unless I put the stickers/plaster on me that seem to go deep into the bone... their called " Vorwerk, Chilly Brand " - Porous cansicum plaster - I have since been told I have hip bursitis from a rheumatoligst, and he gave me 6 costizone shots in one day, 2 went in my hip bones, 2 went in my back bones, and 2 in the butt bones, the cortizone needles didn't work at all...

My name is Deb. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span> of the knee and am awaiting my first Synvisc 1 shot, 12/12/11. the past few days I have been getting an extremely sharp pain from the knee to the hip. Different cause each time. Each time successively worse. Happens about 10 times a day. By the 7th or 8th time I'm in tears. Today it happened when I went to apply the brake in my car. the worst pain is in the hip area, not the knee. Any idea what is going on and how to stop it?
the most common condition is a bursitis, greater trochanter bursitis. Rule out local herpes infections and also myositis. I would suggest you to go for an orthopedic examination if the pain does not subside with NSAIDs and rest. It can also be rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or gout. Infection of the bone called osteomyelitis or any nerve involvement are other reasons. Take care!

I would personally like to take a look as if its the one i think it is then i wouldnt give it much credit, ive scanned the site and there is so many spelling and grammer mistakes. It claims it is a Physicians desk reference but it reads like a 10yr old has written it. If you google paxil and arthritus it comes up as the first search option.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes stiffness and pain in the joints. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span> involves growth of bone spurs and degeneration of cartilage at a joint. It is very common in adults older than 45 and can cause joint pain. Joint pain may also be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the bursae). the bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone.
My concern is that I also have 4 herniated disks in my neck (had them for several years) cervical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span>, plus bursitis in my right shoulder with some swelling already present in the front of my right shoulder and neck. I have been in and out of physical therapy for my neck problems over several years with several trigger point injections but I am still dealing with daily pain, headaches and stiffness in my neck.
Ok so about a week ago my girlfriend noticed a minor pain in her shoulder, which is constant and never relents. the day after she noticed the pain her leg was in so much pain to the point she could not stand up but it eventually got better but her shoulder still hurts constantly even with tylenol. She is a swimmer and slightly overwieght, shes 5'8 at about 160LBs I thought it was just too much phsycial activity but she has a lump on her right shoulder just between her deltoid and clavicle.
This can be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span>, rheumatoid arthritis or even gout. Another possibility is bursitis and inflammation of small joints. It can also be pinched nerve and tendon inflammation. You will need X-rays and some blood tests to find the cause. Nerve conduction studies may be performed if nerve involvement is suspected. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral if need be to the concerned specialist. Take care!
You can have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span> or rheumatoid arthritis and not have Gout and vise versa. If you have either one of those and your Gout clears you will still be left with the pain of arthritis....just not Gouty Arthritis. Ppl with kidney disease are more prone to Gouty Arthritis. If your kidney's are diseased the are unable to remove adequate amounts of uric acid from the body, It can also make you more susceptible to kidney stones.
Tendonitis or bursitis of the joint too produces similar symptoms. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span> too is a possibility but less likely at your age, unless there is a hormonal problem like low estrogen. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
I have been looking on the internet and found a few things I am thinking it might be like bursitis, because i allso have a constant pain in my left heel as well for like two weeks now. I was allso thinking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span> which my dad and uncle have and they both had symptoms at an early age,but my doctor has done a blood test in november2010,and just did an x-ray of my hips and lower back and said that there were no signs but i really believe it is.
So I went to see my fifth doctor an ortho with a hip specialty who did x-rays and a gad MRI and found a moderate sized bone cyst and a labral tear. He is recommended 2 months of PT and if it's still painful to discuss surgical options. My issue is I am still in a LOT of pain and I work 10-14 hour days on my feet, very physical job. the PT can't get me in until the middle of this month.
SAM-E has also been successfully used for those with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>osteoarthritis</span>, depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, bursitis, and many more conditions. Hope I kept that simple enough...I tried awful darn hard...LOL the most important thing to remember is NOT to take either of them (or 5HTP or St. John's Wort) if you are currently taking an antidpressant unless you check out interactions first.

Over the years my hips have become more and more of a problem and now it seems as though I can't move at all without a sharp pain.

If you had any recent injuries then go for an MRI to diagnose any ligament tears or bursitis. Apply ice packs and take intermittent pain killers and follow up with an orthopedician. Treatment of knee bursitis depends on whether infection is involved. If the knee bursa is not infected, knee bursitis may be treated with ice compresses, rest, and anti inflammatory and pain medications. Wear a knee band and do not exert yourself till diagnosed properly. Take care!
I was diagnosed with arthritis in my knees more than 15 years ago and now within the past 8 years my hips and lower back have added to my constant fatigue, pain and sleeplessness. What can I do, what should I be saying exactly to my doctors, what tests should I ask for?
