My question is whether anyone can tell me if osteoarthritis in the lower spine can cause grabbing, debilitating pain that causes the patient to cry out it is so severe. These pains act like pinched nerves, but MRS and Neurological testing shows no nerve damage from the spine. The regular arthritis pain increases gradually when the patient is walking and prevents walking altogether after about 15 yards. The grabbing pain is additional to the regular pain. The only relief for the pain is sitting.
Bending forward my neck and very worst tingling in my hands (A electrical sensation was moving from my fingers of my hands towards my arms), it was lasted for one month 2. Blurred and uncomfortable vision (sometimes) 3. Weakness of my legs 4. Cramp of the muscle of my lower leg (left) 5. Jump of muscle (arms) BTW, I had fever (38.8 oC) because of tonsillitis, so my hands started to tingle for a short time! The following symptoms ARE with me (May-...). 1. Tingling feet 2.
In a nutshell, osteoarthritis is wear-and-tear on the joint. It can happen at any age, not just to "old people". It can be brought on by an injury, a congenital deformity, overuse in a sport or job. RA is a malfunction of the immune system in which it mistakes joint tissue, mainly the cartilage, as something that must be attacked and eliminated. This causes the typical swelling, redness, heat, and over time, damage that causes pain and disability.
I have been recently having severe lower leg pain in my right leg, feels like the bone is broken but I know its not. My question is does Osteoarthritis cause this much pain?
so RA or osteoarthritis can increase your risk of development... I had it on my leg after a car accident and after physical therapy for it I finally got through it... the bursa was absorbed by my body is what the doctor told me... it hurt like fire burns! I hope you feel better soon and it clears up quickly. Good luck!
My knee and lower leg have been in pain for a few months now. I believe the pain is from jogging and putting too much pressure on my leg in general. It hurts mostly when I walk or put pressure on it. Resting my leg and taking naproxen and ibprofen to reduce inflammation does not seem to be healing it. Is it possible that this injury will require surgery? What should I do?
For about a month I have had a redness on the lower right side of my right leg and ankle. There is NO pain,swelling or itching just the redness. My thoughts are that it could be from the shower cleaner spray that I had been using. I am a 63 year old male with osteoarthritis in the right hip. I have made an appointment to see a dermatologist but that is not until March 1st. Is it safe to wait another month for that appointment ? Thank you for your answers.
For the past 2 days I have a very slight heat sensation in my lower left leg (no other problems). Is this some thing I should be concerned about now, or wait for my drs. appt in a few weeks?
What could cause my leg to hurt so bad?? I have always had a little hurt in my legs even when I was little. I just turned 40. My lower calf used to hurt really bad. Now it hurts but now my upper back of leg hurts worse. I am going to go ahead and have an MRI like my doctor recommends. But, I have to addmit I am a little scared. I also have alot of joint pain lately. Thumb, shoulder, elbow.
Hello, There are many causes of lower leg pain chiefly dehydration or low amounts of potassium, sodium, calcium, or magnesium in the blood, muscle fatigue or strain from overuse, too much exercise, or holding a muscle in the same position for a long time, strain, stress fracture, tendonitis, Shin splints, claudication, osteomyelitis,osteoarthritis, nerve damage etc. Exact diagnosis can only be made after a detailed evaluation and investigations.
I have CHF, cardiomyopathy, MVP, diabetes, hypothryodism, osteoarthritis, neuropathy. I am experiencing a new pain in my right leg where the neuropathy is the worst. I have one spot on the side of my lower leg that is constant pain. I can not get it relieved no matter what I do. Usually it hurts when I stand or walk for a few minutes. I have to sit down to get it relieved, but since yesterday, I can't get it relieved. I take Neurotin.
I was wondering if you have ever considered that their might be either some arthritis involved or possibly a herniated disc in your lower back? I had the pain in my left leg to start with and that turned out to be Osteoarthritis in my left hip and I've had a hip implant back in 1981 at the age of 35 years of age. Then I suffered pain again in BOTH of my legs and that turned out to be DDD ( Degenerative Disc Disease) in my back.
I have fallen a few times, but this is usually down stairs, so I avoid stairs altogether. The muscle, only in the left leg, painfully contracts, even when the leg is at rest. The pain is deep in the bones, so rubbing muscle medication on does not work - aspirin and cortizone give me the best results. I periodically have foot pain, where I am unable to put pressure on the food for approx a day and night, then it subsides.
The pain also goes down my left leg and is now in my lower left back. When I don't have shooting pains in my groin, there is a dull ache. Went to the DR. today and she thinks I may have kidney stones. Could this be ovarian cyst? The pains increase during ovulation and during my period. I have had them for the last several months and my periods have been irregular. I have no constipation. Has anyone had these symptoms?
Hi Welcome to the forum! You could be having severe osteoarthritis of the right hip joint. This causes inability to move the leg after a period of rest. Another possibility is compression of the sacral nerve roots of the spine causing sciatica. The level of pain will vary with the type of activity you are doing. Osteoarthritis itself can cause pinched nerves. You should ideally consult an orthopedic specialist and neurologist both.
Pain in the buttocks radiating into the thigh and upper part of calf could be due to damage to the nerves, strained muscles, obstructed blood supply to the muscles of the lower limb and also due to certain degenerative diseases in the bones. In your case, as it is already diagnosed as osteoarthritis, there is a possibility of increased inflammation in the hip joint, that could happen due to stress, infection etc.
Unremarkable MRI lumbar spine. -Could the arthritis in L4 and L5 cause compression that can lead to my bilateral leg weakness? Anything would be greatly appreciated.
I got relief from my leg pain and arm pain etc with the new FDA approved product called Immune 26. My doctor in Tulsa has had great results with it as it rebuilds your immune system and thus your body can fight off different diseases and pain itself. If you are interested you can email me for the link to their website.
I had the numbness to my lateral leg, and on my last 3 toes, with no achilles reflex present on my right lower leg. After surgery, the pain was not as extreme. For the first 2 weeks after surgery, I was having that "restless" leg sensation to my right leg, cramping (Charlie horse!) It would wake me up at night, stretching the extremity relieved the cramping. Every day seems better, although I still have some numbness to my right foot and leg.
I have recently been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, but have been suffering with a pain in the upper part of the back & inside of my legs, it is painful but can only be described as cold & painful to the touch, or rather I cannot bear to touch it or for anything to touch the area. The easiest way to describe is is if you put your hand on the ice in your chest freezer for a while it becomes painful to the touch.
The only thing that seems to alleviate it at all but is only temporary, is stretching my right hamstring by putting my right leg up on a high bench or table and bending forward towards my foot and touching my right foot with my hands and holding it for about 30seconds and repeating several times.
I saw a lot of responses re: Lyrica/Methodaone. I'm a 60 year old male with FMS (20% are) disabled for 4 years, on Tramadol, Methadone, Trazadone, Ambien, Gabitral, considering Lyrica, and wondered if some of you or others you know have tried "stretching machines" that work on either a gravitational or hydraulic basis or the "peanut as seen on TV" to stetch our necks, arms. backs and leg nerves out longitudinally as well as lateraly?
I do have osteoarthritis and have a pinched nerve on right lumbar area. I have been experiencing cramps on both my calves and upper and lower extremeties involuntary movements more during the night then the day. Can someone let me know what can that be.
I was a professional dancer on Broadway for 10 years and now suffer from Degenerative Disc Disease. I have pain in my lower back, but the pain down the ciatic path of my right leg is often unbearable. After two years of trying EVERY other option (epidural injections, nerve ablasions, massage, accupuncture, muscle activation technique, physical therapy, even a 3 level discectomy (8 weeks ago)), nothing has helped releive the pain. My pain management doctor (Dr.
Finally we tried injections (cortisone and a caine drug I think) in the sacroiliac joint and low and behold it worked. I had two days of no leg pain, no pelvic pain, no hip or lower back pain. My walking improved to normal!!! Instead of hobbling across the living room and having to sit down from standing position every 10 minutes to recover, I went to a hobby store, a big one, and walked all over the store. For an hour. No pain. It was a joyous occasion.
I have had lower back pain for around 10 years. At least once a year I have what I call an episode, which simply means the back pain, worsens. The strange thing is when it does get worse the pain always radiates up my back not down. In 10 years I have had 2 MRIs on my lower back and they always find nothing. I am a very active person stretching everyday (because of my lower back) and using an elliptical machine for 30min/ 3 times a week for 6 yrs around 480 calories each time.
I would be sitting and all of the sudden I would get this very sharp pain in my upper (front) leg near my hip. (upper thigh area) The pain only last 1/2 min to a min. I can go a week without a pain, then it will happen a couple of times a day, for a couple days in a row. I haven't had any injuries. I am over weight, but I have lost 75 pounds. ...So I don't beleive it is weight related. I have been exercising, but I haven't been doing anything too strenuous.
