Arthritis knee pain symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Arthritis knee pain symptoms


Avatar f tn What if arthritis doesn't run in the family? Can the cause of your joint, knee, feet and bone pain plus the chills, sweats and fatigue be caused by Arthritis?
Avatar f tn I have knee pain and swelling that comes and goes. I have been to an Orthopedic and have had x-rays and MRI. Nothing specific was noted in the x-ray and scan. The Dr suggested orthoscopic surgery to see what he might be able to do. I have not had the surgery. He also suggested I may have osteoarthritis. The pain will come with walking, sometimes very quickly and sometimes not much at all.
Avatar n tn And when this bone participates in movement severe pain is caused. Knee arthritis typically affects patients over 50 years of age. It is more common in patients who are overweight, and weight loss tends to reduce the symptoms associated with knee arthritis. There is also a genetic predisposition to this condition. 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.
Avatar f tn I have just started having a dull aching pain in and around my left knee. It has started waking me up at night. I am already on Celebrex 200 twice a day. Could this still be arthritis?
Avatar n tn Hi, at this age the cause of knee pain are arthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, reactive arthritis, bursitis etc. As you don't have history of recent trauma, it is unlikely to be ligament or meniscus tear. Investigations like MRI, blood tests like ESR, RF, ANA etc are done to find out causes related to autoimmune diseases. Try cold compression, crepe bandage and pain killers like diclofenac etc.

Avatar n tn i have pain under both kneecaps and is painful to walk on but there is no pain when i bend either knee I have suffered no injury that would cause this and pain was in right knee first and now its both
Avatar m tn I am sure there is a variation of the processes depending upon the individuals severity of the specific condition, There are treatments for knee pain that are very effective compared to when my knee pain originated, There are injections for treating arthritis of the knee that I could have had before my arthritis became so severe, I have pampered my knees for years. Started with knee cracking or crepitus when I was 21.
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 The knees are at the stage where my doctor says the only option is knee replacement surgery, and that I should let him know when the pain is too bad to tolerate. So, any walking is painful, as is driving, getting out of a chair, etc. Even worse is the lower back pain. If I stand or walk for more than 3-5 minutes, I develop back spasms so bad that I feel nauseous, get sweaty and even feel sort of panicky. The only thing that shows in x-rays for my lower back is the arthritis.
Avatar m tn I have several chronic symptoms that collectively have lead me to suspect reactive arthritis. I have had heel pain (left foot) for 5 years, sacroiliac joint pain (rt side) for 10+ years, eye inflammation/dryness (left) for many years and had psoriasis on palm of right hand about 7 years ago (currently fine). None of these is debilitating but they are painful, annoying and they limit activities (running, hiking, biking, etc.).
Avatar f tn I am feeling pain in my right knee for 7 years now and all the doctors say they don't know the reason. One of my doctors did say I have bruising on the inside of my knee and gave me medication. After a few days, it wasn't working and the pain kept coming. I have a pain on the inside of my knee. It's constant unbearable pain. It hurts to where my whole leg gets numb and my feet gets cold. My knee also has this stingy feeling and they give out on itself.
Avatar f tn I am 27 year women, my mother having rheumatoid problem from before six month she 55 years old, my weight is 36, now i am having knee pain from one month , i am having breathing problem, very diet, from 10 days some times my left chest is paining, from 4 days i am getting vertigo sometimes. this problem for my weakness or any symptoms for arthritis .pls explain me.
510679 tn?1265668267 post op surgery in august 2009(lateral release, torn meniscus repair and scraping of knee to get arthrtiis cleaned out), still no better actually more pain since but different pain. I am in severe pain most days dr wont give me no pain meds, i have tried ibuprofen so much to the point my stomach burns, so that is out. Tylenol, aleve doesnt help. I got an appt to a new dr tomorrow, so maybe he can help..was just wondering if anyone had any advice on injections..etc..
Avatar f tn Now my entire leg hurts when I try to walk. I went to my doctor and he said it is arthritis of the knee. Can arthritis of the knee affect the leg this badly, to the point that I cannot put all my weight on the leg and am limping? He ruled out any clots in leg. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
Avatar m tn Those are very exactly some of the symptoms I have because of severe arthritis in my right knee. Get it looked and and start working the thigh muscle. It will help support the knee and lessen the damage you do when standing, sitting walking etc... You need to have an x-ray and see an orthopedic knee guy. Without insurance though you might try just paying for physical therapy.
Avatar n tn I have pain behind my knee and my leg is swollen in the calf. I was checked for blood clot and it was negative. I feel heat coming out of my knee when I place an ice pack on it. It warms the ice pack quickly. My thigh is swollen too, but all the pain is in my knee. It hurts to touch the bones in my knee. My ankles are a little swollen and also the calf on the other leg. I have had a meniscus tear and arthritis in one knee and baker's cyst in the other.
Avatar f tn With the symptoms you mentioned I feel it could be tendinitis or arthritis or bursitis. Arthritis can be secondary to many diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, gout, injury, infections etc. Bursitis and tendinitis can occur due to over use and injury to the knee. As pain subsided with ibuprofen it could be some inflammation like bursitis, arthritis or tendinitis. Take rest, elevate your limbs while sleeping, take ibuprofen if necessary.
Avatar f tn t walk up or down stairs or hills without more pain. There is also pain when I inadvertently twist my knee (if I turn while walking) or if I try to get up from a sitting position by placing most of my weight on that leg. My confusion lies in the usual symptoms of meniscal injuries - I've had no swelling, my knee doesn't lock completely. Is this a meniscal tear? Could it be that an old injury is starting to cause this years later?
632407 tn?1263210713 Dear Angryt, To be frank, after your detailed description of the problem, i think we can just go a step further to rule out "other bony diseases" excluding arthritis because of your age. Please get the following blood checkup done and tell me about the report - 1) Complete Hemogram. 2) ESR 3) CRP 4) ASO 5) RA factor 6) Sr Albumin and Sr Globulin 7) Alkaline Phosphatase Once these investigations are done, please post the results.
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.
757973 tn?1234458769 s cyst is an accumulation of joint fluid behind the knee. Most cysts do not cause symptoms, but, occasionally, large cysts may cause discomfort and/or stiffness. In fact, most cysts are recognized only after they rupture, a process that can cause pain, swelling and bruising. Baker's cysts can occur in anyone of any age. The most common cause in older people is arthritis. Your cyst has probably been there for a while but was worsened by further injury.
