Avatar f tn MSM is an herbal remedy. Methylsulfonylmethane. It is for joint pain/support, but it also helps regrow hair and is good for asthma, arthritis, allergies and Fibromyalgia. Some people claim that it helps with headaches and heartburn. Doesn't help my heartburn - but does help me with the inflammation from Fibromyalgia.
Avatar m tn The other possibility is that what you have is a simple case of arthritis. Though gout normally affects small joints, the possibility of it isolated affecting the knee joint cannot be totally ruled out. An X-ray of the knee joint followed by MRI of the joint may be required. Please consult an orthopedic specialist. Hope this helps. Take care!

Avatar f tn who showed me the x-ray film, pointing out two little bone spurs on either side of the knee cap, an indication of arthritis. (I had gone online when I started getting pains in my toes and found that gout often follows diabetes.) The P.A. wrote me a prescription for 500mg of Nabumetone, a pain killer. When I asked what the side effects were, she said upset stomach was the most common.
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 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 n tn however, recently my arthritis is really flaring. my hands and feet were recently x-rayed and both show arthritis. i have pain in the big joint of both feet--not gout--but it spreads up into the arch of my foot. my knees ache almost unbearably at times and i have to wear those tight sleeve things over them almost all the time. i started out almost 12 years ago with only daily headaches and neck pain. i could take one darvocet with an excedrine and be good for the rest of the day.
Avatar n tn This may seem a little off base to you and others. Cocaine and crack also depress pain. There was a doctor in my area about 15 years ago that used to prescribe cocaine to his arthritis patients because it made their pain go away and they felt better. I don't know where he got the stuff but needless to say, he is no longer practicing.
1110049 tn?1409402144 Apple cider vinegar, organic and unfiltered, has proven to be a great remedy for arthritis, as it improves PH balance-more alkaline- and increases digestive function. It also is one of the best sources of Malic Acid, to counteract the damaging effects of Tartaric Acid, a tissue toxin.
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.

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.

Avatar f tn My boyfriend was in a car accident about 18 years ago. He broke his femur in 6 places and had a metal rod placed from the hip to the knee. Every few years, he suffers from excrutiating pain to the point where he can't walk, has to sleep sitting up, it hurts to put any kind of weight on it (he describes it as like a Charley Horse that won't go away). Eventually, after about 4-6 weeks it goes away.
Avatar m tn t suggest arthritis to me, I have arthritis of the knee and I get pain in the knee, also in muscles that work the knee. I don't get numbness anywhere else. I'm not medically qualiified but a doctor should check this out, whatever it is you will be better off with treatment.
Avatar m tn I'll do my best to answer this, but it's best to consult a rheumatologist. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the knee joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci (plural for meniscus), and bones forming the joint. The complexity of the design of the knee joint and the fact that it is an active weight-bearing joint are factors in making the knee one of the most commonly injured joints.

Avatar n tn He sent me for an X-Ray which showed early arthritis changes. He sent for a course of Physiotherapy which I attended for 6months. In the end I stopped going because after the initial mild improvement in pain there was no further improvement. I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily. Despite this the symptoms have now spread to my right hip, right shoulder and slight symptoms in my right knee.
Avatar n tn However now since multiple joints are involved, it goes more in favor of associated arthritis. It can be osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or even reactive arthritis. You would need some tests and X-rays of the joints to diagnose this. The pain in the joints can also be due to overweight, hypothyroidism and diabetes. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult yur orthopedic specialist.
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.
