Arthritis knee cure

Common Questions and Answers about Arthritis knee cure


Avatar n tn The knee fluid is not typically ‘taken out’ but rather ‘injected in’ patients with arthritis. If fluid is taken out in arthritis it would need to be substituted with similar substances. The fluid is ‘taken out’ with other issues such as bursitis, infections etc. I would suggest discussing the situation and the appropriate management plan in detail with his treating doctor. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn I have arthritis in my knee and in my left foot - but think it is also now in my hip. I was taking percocet for pain but have tried to get off them as I feel I was getting addicted. Right now I am looking for advice - the bottom of my left foot hurts and aches... is there anything you can put in your shoes or on your foot to lessen the pain? It's not swollen, and I don't really want a store bought insert because then it makes it too high for my foot.
Avatar f tn Dear Friend, If you are still getting the pain, inspite of injections (which are costly also), then i would suggest you to go for a second opinion. What i am able to understand that you had small arthritis and due to the injury, the arthritis exaggerated and also resulted in a meniscal injury. Now this meniscal injury at this stage is crucial. Because it's the treating doctor's judgement.
11446628 tn?1418298480 You may not have rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune disorder, but your osteoarthritis can have flare ups. At the moment it appears that you are having a flare up (acute). Chronic means long lasting. You can have a condition that is chronic that may not be acute. Your doctor can send you for xrays to see how the osteoarthritis in your knee is at the moment and compare this to previous results.

Avatar m tn 3) I have also read it is possible to have mono-arthritis as the only sign of DGI. Assuming my tendonitis was not DGI, Could this current swollen knee problem by gonococcal arthritis or is 87 days to late for onset?
Avatar n tn How do I get rid of the chronic stiffness in my foot(right; & hand) ? Doc surmises(diagnosis) inflammed tendons( I ran for <20 years, now ceased). What's the cure for osteoarthritic inflammation, or does everyone cop out with, "there's no cure" & go enjoy life(while others suffer) ?
Avatar f tn I have had mild osteoarthritis in my right hand, of and on. Now I have knee pain, both knees, elbow pain, foot pain (orthotics (4 diff pairs) haven't helped). Not severe enough to take meds. Have been sleeping on a magnetic mat for 3 years. Doesn't seem to help. Have been going to osteopath, masseur, acupuncturist, nutritionist (treating inflammation). No real relief. Other issue (related?) is poor blood circulation (circulatory disorder). Not overweight (120lbs at 5'4.
Avatar m tn Last year I got septic arthritis in my left knee. Had 10 bouts of surgery on my knee to washout the knee. I still get alot of pain in my knee. I had had a recent MRI which no one can explain to me satisfactorely. Hope you can be of help. The MRI states: "Severe degeneration of the medial and lateral menisci noted with fraying of the articular surface and inner free edge of the menisci. No ligament injury is seen.
Avatar f tn About a month later my wrists started to feel better, but I started getting the same pain in my ankles, and my left knee. It really hurts alot when I walk or have to lift my knee. My knee almost feels swollen. I have never heard of a joint pain that moves around I am so lost. I am tired of taking Ibprofin and sleeping on a heating pad! I went to my primary DR. He took blood, x-rays and urine, but they all came back normal.
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm 14 years old and i have had pain in my knees, hips, and now on the side of my right shin. I started having pain in my left knee in December of '08. Then my right knee started hurting. Then both of my hips. MY hips are the ones that hurt the most now, not so much my knees anymore. I've been in ballet for 9 yrs also. I've had x-rays (sunrise, and lateral?), blood tests for arthritis but nothing came up.
Avatar f tn 4 weeks later, I developed a low grade fever and sudden onset severe pain in my knee joint and muscle aches in legs. It was quite severe and though i managed to walk about, was unable to stand for long. There were also pains in smaller joints of my toes and fingers. On movement there were clicking sounds, but no pain in shoulder and wrist joints. I also had pain in the skin of my soles and fingers, a left side tinnitus and weakness in the muscles of my left hand.
Avatar n tn Other factors that can contribute to developing knee arthritis include trauma to the knee, meniscus tears or ligament damage, and fractures to the bone around the joint. I think, it is the trauma and ligament tear, that have contributed to arthritis in your case. If the arthritis in your case is rheumatic or due to any other cause that should be treated first to prevent all these symptoms.
Avatar n tn Though she was all fine till last month. Then she has a minor accident where she injured her right knee. Since then it has swollen and she can not walk. Doctors said that she has Peripheral Arthritis as well. They gave her one Steroid injection and started her on sulfasalazine (1gm per day). Her pain has gone, but she still can not walk. She feel weak and stiffness while walking. It is 6 weeks since her accident and 2 week since her medication started.
Avatar m tn Hi, ‘bowing’ leads to increased load on the inner side of the knee causing further wear and tear. In this entire process, the outer side of the knee joint is virtually intact. Osteotomy is now available for patients who have not reached the last stages of arthritis. This involves realigning i.e. straightening the bowed knee the knee in such a manner that the load on the inner side of the knee is transferred to the outer side of the knee.
Avatar m tn Hi, I need some suggestion. I am 32. I have been leading a relatively inactive life for the past many years. I am slightly overweight ( 5'10" & 84 KGs ) and I suspect I have some symptoms of arthritis in my knee joints as I can't keep my kness bent for more than 15-20 minutes without feeling some pain in my knees.
Avatar n tn There are so many different reasons that could be the cause of your knee pain. Arthritis, Ligament issues, Cartilage or Meniscus tears, Chondromalacia Patella (knee cap) Bursitis and the list goes on. I don't know your age but my first guess would be arthritis, especially because of the way you describe it. Often when arthritis begins it will be after you rest an fairly active knee. And yes you can have it in just one knee.
Avatar f tn Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling). So as you can see, arthritis can cause an overall knee pain. Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee.
Avatar f tn Am age 65. Diagnosed with tear in posterior horn of medial meniscus extending into inferior articular surface, plus some arthritis. Ice, heat, NSAIDs, hydrocodone don't help. Cortisone shot helped a little. Pain puts me in wheelchair if I walk much, and walking was my life until 12/08. Had recurrent C. difficile colitis for 8 months in 2005 - 06, so am at risk of another recurrence if I need antibiotics. Are there other treatments besides surgery?
Avatar m tn Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling). So as you can see, arthritis can cause an overall knee pain. Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee. Meniscii too if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint.
