Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hands pictures


Anyway, go through the surgery where he cuts some stuff that he thought might be making my knee catch and think I am good to go. He showed me pictures he took while in my knee and said I had some mild arthritis on it which somewhat worried me but he said it didn't seem concerning. I was great for a few weeks then the locking and general pain came back. Not as often as it used to but still painful and such. Also, now my left knee which used to rarely ever lock or hurt is now doing both.
And the rheumatologist said that I have osteoarthritis in my neck, back, hands and feet. X-Rays showed Osteoarthritis in both hands, both feet, and that my patellas (knee caps) are spuriously elevated. The MRI of my spine showed degenerative disc disease at every level of my spine including neck, thoracic and lumbar, and multi-level hamangeomas and vacuum phenomenon! And the doctor said my MRI was normal!? Is it normal to have OA in so many places when I am a female age - 56?
I cannot imagine losing use or not being able to do the things I do. Osteoarthritis scares the hell out of me and as most pictures I had found before were very unlike this I had hoped to hear something else. Just seems odd they just all of a sudden were there, though I suspected as I said that they probably just came to my attention when they got larger. I will keep you posted on what the doctor says after my appointment. Thanks for your help.
I have numbness and pain in my Arms and hands, and my legs and feet but mostly my legs feet hands and fingers. I also get muscle spasms.
) Don't have a lot free time on your hands, make sure have lots things to do. I have a lot of active's that keep me busy. I take pictures all over place from people, things, landscapes, animals, etc. Scrapbooking, medhelp, groups, and helping others. 3.) Time with my animals (St. Bernards) breeding. 4.) A higher power and looking to him for help and strenght, courage and knowledge. 5.) My job I love it and enjoy going to work daily and I think that is a big plus.
The registrar today even said he couldn't see any arthritis, which showed I think his inexperience, I've had it diagnosed from a bone spot scan and senior consultants and osteoarthritis never gets better. What the report did show though in as far as the areas they were looking at, was inflammation, some in my right side trocjanteic bursa, my gluteus medius right insertion, and the insertions of both the hamstrings, in this case worse on the left.
Sudden redness appears on right calf with an accompanying line (see attached pictures) the line in the picture always accompanies the redness sometimes the line is lower towards the ankle, which is followed by numbness/a pins and needles sensation in my foot, that subsides within about five minutes both redness on calf and numbness in foot, shaking hands approx 4-5 months, joint pain particularly knees approx 6 months, Under my right shoulder blade I have a burning sensation which is almost tin
of Utah told me to take care with my calcium or I'd develop osteoarthritis and might end up in a wheelchair in my 50's...ok, 50 is only 11 years away....AACK. Prayers are with you!!
My symptoms have included, optic neuritis, temporary vision loss, tingling in extremities, a hot sensation in hands and feet at night while sleeping, occasional dizziness and fatigue. I was positively diagnosed with an MRI. My question is: Has anyone also been tested for Lymes Disease? I have been reading about this, and the symptoms are VERY similar (even lesions on an MRI). I was just wondering if anyone had been misdiagnosed in the past.
7 years and still kicking but this still wears me out when I have flare ups. I also have alot of osteoarthritis througout my body.I also have these little lump like noduels in several places on my stomach,chest and arms,tho I can roll or more them easily and they don't hurt. I believe they are either fat nods or colesterol nods but again I am not a dr. I have been down the rd thinking I haals and still wonder if it's ms tho i really don't stumble or drop things.
Hi guys, I have been suffering with weird burning feet when hot the edges are red, and my hands now are also troublesome, pain, burning, swollen and hot. I am so fed up with all this. Anyway out of desperation as I dont usually google symptoms I put in swollen hands, and came up with a site for Erythromelalgia. About Erythromelalgia EM is a rare disorder that can occur at any age and affects both genders. Most cases of EM are idiopathic (cause unknown).
I know you asked this question a while ago but it could have been dermatitis. I have contact dermatitis from paper and it causes red itchy bumps on the palms of my hands. I also lose my fingerprints and get itchy bumps on the tips and sides of my fingers. I use an emollient cream at night and throughout the day to protect my hands. Myabe this info is better late than never.
Most days my hands are cold too but not like my feet. I have the tingling in my hands as well, although not as much as in my feet. Warm socks, Ted stockings and electric blanket are needed to help warm my feet and legs yet they stay uncomfortable with some mild pain and tremors as well. This will let up just a bit and then the next day or two it will hit me hard again. Last week while driving to town I began to get the bad numbness in my right foot while it was on the gas pedal!
The surgeon that did my laminectomy in Feb recommended it, said he wasn't qualified to do a 2 level fusion, and wiped his hands clean of me. He treated me like a liar even after the new MRI and prrof their was a new herniated disk etc. Even went as far as to say the person reading it was wrong. Kept showing me WHAT he did in surgery rather than the NEW issues. Anyway, my family doc.
Honestly I don't know anything about Hepatitis C and don't want to get you all weirded out but I read the other forums when I'm bored and on the Hepatitis one there is a poster whom had a husband having several painful blood blisters on his hands. Like I said I'm sure it's nothing but I thought I would mention it.
After 2 rds. of therapy (48&52 wks.) and 2 rounds of maintainence dosages, I still carry the disease. It has been 6 mths. since my last maintainence dose & I am still having multiple sides. The worse is my legs & feet numbness. I have been diagnosed with Neuropathy, which could possibly reverse itself, but it seems to be getting worse. I use to get a tingling feeling in my legs prior to feet numbness. Now, my feet just go numb in an instant, resulting in many falls.
I love my 2 outdoor cats since I have respiratory allergies to them and get asthma from them. I give them some petting each day, then have to rush to wash my hands, but I'll still get rashes now that a Prolia injection I got many months ago still has my skin inflamed and I have terrible bone pain from it too. Wish I had never had that injection. Thanks for sharing the stories.
She has osteoarthritis. All the disks in her lumbar spine are herniated. She and I both have bad osteoarthritis, for some reason. We've both had the cervica; fusion surgery, and now she's having the lumbar surgery, when she's able. She just had a heart stent, so she has to wait to be off Plavix, a blood thinner. My ortho surgeon says I will need lumbar surgery at some point,too, but who knows when? So, I am happy to have "Steaksgiving" for my mom!
It started with tingling in my face, both sides, and both hands. Then, burning feeling on top of my head. Neck pain, arm pains, eye pain. Then, I had problems with TMJ on right side, I couldn't eat for 2 weeks. I went to massage therapist, dentist, doctor, chiropracter. They all said stress, anxiety. I had a nerve conduction test done and a Catscan. I haven't got the results back yet, but I am feeling a litte better. Do you grind your teeth at night? I do really, really bad.
( I;l be happy to answer ...
My dbl/blurred vision had returned and gotten worse. I started to have balance problems, headaches, cold hands/feet, numb hands/legs, and vertigo. The CT was clear, my eye's wern't traking. The LP showed very high protein levels. The doc called a neuro who said it was prob MS. He scheduled a MRI next week. He said I cannot work until this is resolved-due to what I do for a living. They said the MS would change my life forever, and I would prob have to change jobs.
Mornings: Topical consisting of Clindamycin, Zinc Oxide. It's in an alcohol base (Sebanil) but doesn't seem to irritate now that my skin is relatively calm. They said this is for the rosacea (Clindamycin is an antibiotic) but I think it also helps the seb derm. It was rx for face but I use it all over face, forehead, and neck. Even used it a little on uppper back when I had a minor breakout of something or another.
Iv been reading a lot of posts here and they all relate to me, Iv got Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve End Damage to my Hands and Feet) Very Painful without any medication, but all the medication I have tried gives me terrible side effects especially Tramadol, (I lost a stone and a half when I first went on them) Im on Fast and Slow release Tramadol at the moment and while trying to wean off the effects of withdrawal are hawfull.
When I got up this morning it was obvious that he had only minutes left. At least he died in the hands of his family. I can hardly believe he's gone after so many years. Nick, our quaker parrot has a cage only 3 feet away from Petey's. He's very upset and keeps shrieking for his friend. I wonder how long this will keep up? You know, I thought I was prepared for this. Obviously I'm not because I'm blubbering like a child.
Their are other not so wonderful side effects, such as mind blocks, tingly hands and dry mouth. Plus, I don't think people should be given a pill just for weight loss. It is a good benefit, but exercise and diet are a better way. It's fair to us because we need the medication to aid other needs.
These are the classic MS plaques and are considered old lesions. They show up as the bright areas most of us have seen in pictures and on our films. If the attack on the myelin sheath is too strong for the immune system to repair, more and more myelin disappears and the area of nerves eventually dies. Then it contracts and scars. The blood flow is decreased to that area and the body tries to reabsorb the dead area. It becomes "less dense" then the surrounding normal nerve tissue.
I am itching too... and I'm not joking!!! It's just everywhere here and there and it really does drive you nuts... I don't have any idea why... I came here to see what was wrong with everyone else. Ok so you have absolutely no answers. Guess I'll go to the doctor... LOL I will say, it started out with my hands and feet. When I wake up it is a horrible warm "desperate" itch that has to be dealt with NOW! feeling... Understand what I mean by that? Even my lips..
Now, since May 15th. I've been having fainting spells. My nose is numb my hands get ice cold. My blood pressure drops and my breathing in very shallow and slow and your heart just feels like it's not doing well. I've had EEG/MRI/CT and nuclear heart stress test/ Tilt Table Test and passed everyone with flying colors. To top it off I noticed on this sight. (Goozy) refers to a smell on they can smell. I have that same smell and it's almost metallic or a dusty(old attic)smell to it.
My b6 blood level was 81 - the maximum safe level in this test was 32. When reading about b6 toxicity one reads about tingling hands and feet and being "wobbly on your feet" and things of that nature. It can be much more than that. Be careful with Vitamin b6. It's not known if the neurological damage is reversible. Some studies show it is, some show it is not.
Just dropped in after kicking about 5 or 6 months ago. I started on tramadol for osteoarthritis pain and was on trammies for approx. 18 months before I wanted my life back. I was at 14 -20 pills a day (700 -1000 mg.) just to be "normal" and was going to 3 different docs to obtain that amount.
