387767_tn?1345875627 Knee pain has many causes, including pathologic processes in the knee and disorders in distant locations with referral to the knee area. Can you tell me when this pain is more? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms?
11446628_tn?1418302080 I have osteoarthritis in my spine, from neck down. I also have pain in my knee and hands, and my fingers are twisting and have knots. My right knee has had pain and swelling for weeks, and this morning it's too painful to walk. I haven't injured it. Recent blood test didn't report rheumatoid arthritis. So what's going on with my knee, and with my hands?
Avatar_m_tn LAT report is reduction in the patellofemoral and medial tibiofemoral joint space formation of osteophytes seen at articles margins and for right knee reduction in the reduction in the patellofemoral and medial femoral joint space formation of articular margins. the visualused bones are normal in architecture and alignment. no bony lesion or break is seen. surrounding soft tissues are normal in appearance. Impression of left knee: Osteosrthiritis and for right knee: F/S/O Osteoarthiritis.
Avatar_f_tn There are moderately large osteophytes in the patellofemoral compartment. Postoperative changes of lateral patellar release are suggested. There is focal full-thickness cartilage loss in the medial compartment with large marginal osteophytes and some reactive subcortical marrow signal changes. Lateral compartment demonstrates focal full-thickness cartilage loss with large marginal osteophyte formation and some reactive subcortical marrow signal changes.
Avatar_m_tn Early chondromalacia in mid thirds of medial patellar facet) Dr advising Orthoscopy surgery, Now I forwarded MRI report etc to my INSURANCE COMPANY for a pre approval to undergo this surgery, the INSURANCE COMPANY have refused for same citing the reason that this is a pre existing disease i e Osteoarthritis. My query is the pain in knee I am having after falling down i.
Avatar_f_tn Mild tricompartmental osteoarthritis manifested by loss of joint space,marginal osteophytes and mild cartilage loss. No full thickness cartilage defects.4.Knee joint effusion with no osteochondral intraaticular bodies. 5. Bilobed popliteal cyst.Cortison injections were given I have had problems since I had syvinal injections which worked for 7 months. Pain in knee and the gel injections a second time in April. Knee pain has returned. I also have RA and have been on Plaqunil for a few months.
Avatar_f_tn Osteoarthritis, the worse overall chondrosis in the laterial tibiofemoral compartmentn where the abnormalities include a relatively well-defined approx 1 cm AP dimension high-grade chondral defect along the more posterior weightbearing lateral femoral ondyle with an adjacent less well-defined segment of high-grade partial thickness cartliage loss along the lateral tibial plateau (without subchondral bone marrow edema); and an approx 1 cm segment of partial-thickness cartliage loss and fissurin
Avatar_f_tn Hi glammagee. You story reads very similarly to my good friend in Quebec, who was last year in India and sends me a message that she's in severe back and shoulder pain, diagnosed with bone spurs/osteophytes. I told her to get boswellia serrata, which actually comes from India and is one of the best herbal anti-inflammatories. This kept her going till she returned to Canada where she verified the osteophytes, was given a cortisone shot and was waiting to see a specialist.
1475492_tn?1332887767 ) As a person with lots of osteoarthritis (not auto-immune related rheumatoid arthritis) I have heard a lot of reporting of osteophytes on the parts of joints where joints rub together. It's the reason I ended up turning my natural knee in for an artificial replacement. I think bone marrow signal abnormalities are about as non-specific as lesions.
Avatar_m_tn I gave up downhill skiing and snowboarding years ago because of knee problems and now concentrate on road biking and XC skiing. The pain started out as a sharp sudden pain if I moved the wrong way mostly involving hip flexion and rotation. Cycling was not painful at all. I was being treated for a groin pull and was told that it was OK to to continue with my routine of cycling around 225 miles a week. I did 8 weeks of physical therapy which helped with range of motion.
Avatar_n_tn It sounds like you need a second neurosurg opinion. Bear in mind that osteophytes (bony spurs) can grow into the spinal canal and cause serious pressure on the spinal cord also. Did the neurosurgeon disagree with the seriousness of the compression or just with what was causing the compression (disc versus bony growths)? Did he feel that surgery was indicated? Are we all talking about severe compression and just dickering about what is causing the pressure?

Avatar_f_tn Would you mind sharing with us the type of arthritis you have and where it is in your body? I have Osteoarthritis thru out my entire body. I have severe DDD (Degenerative Disc Disease) thru out my entire spine. Plus many bulging discs from my neck all the way down to the Lumbar region. I've.had the RFA (Radiofrequency Ablation) done on all 6 of the areas in the Lumbar and that has taken away the pain there. HUGE relief.
623944_tn?1244039090 I have Morphea scleroderma, since @ age 7 with a large morphea patch on inner left knee and hyper-pigmentation on lower face, neck ring, forearms and lower back. Have a positive ANA – don’t know the numbers. I have osteoarthritis in lumbar region. This was discovered in Nov 2007 when I injured my back.

Avatar_n_tn Fatigue comes and goes in intensity, but overall awful. Finally, years ago diagnosed w/osteoarthritis in hip. Now experience constant pain in hip, knees, right shoulder and occasionally jaw, wrists, knuckes. Vision seems blurred, even with glasses - tho' usually if I concentrate can focus.
552681_tn?1215136132 1) Mild Posterocentral disc protrusion at C3/4 and C4/5 Levels indenting the thecal sac. 2) Broad based posterior disc bulge at C5 /6 level which along wih bordering osteophytes and hypertrophy is causing canal narrowing indenting the thecal sac and bilateral exiting nerve roots. Please tell me what it means and what will be the treatment for the same.can it be cured with medicines or will it need surgery? can this problem increase impacting the other limbs or part of the body......
Avatar_n_tn Some levels worse than others. Plus the wonderful osteophytes. I'm having a discogram next week to see if my screwy discs are what's causing my grief. If it's discs, my surgeon will be using the ProDisc-C...which was FDA approved last year. Even though they are now approved, the trouble lies with insurance coverage. Not too many carriers are covering it yet.
