Differences between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

Common Questions and Answers about Differences between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis


211940 tn?1267884866 I can't believe so many people have the same pain and so few have been diagnosed. I have been tested for Rheumatoid arthritis and PMR (polymyalgia rheumatica) but the blood work came back negative. I am having pain in all joints but the nights are unbearable - especially with the upper arms. Last night I slept sitting up and had a better sleep that I have had for months. It's difficult to do but I cannot believe what a difference it made - 5 whole hours of sleep! Anything is worth a try...

Avatar n tn This pain would intensify which would cause me to wince in pain and then release and then repeat all over again every 5-10 seconds for about a minute. This pain did not radiate anywhere but only within a specific point. Then this same stabbing sensation occurred half way up to the first knuckle of my right middle finger about 30 minutes later. Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe.

Avatar n tn I have bulging discs and osteoarthritis and the avascular necrosis. The hip pain has been the worst of what I have experienced. The Dr's tell me having my hips replaced will cure most of the pain. I am now bone on bone , no cartiledge with cysts. I am just worried I have waited too long as now I have lost my muscle tone am not able to exercise at all now, sleeping more than an hour or so at a time is not possible most nights. My legs have a weird feeling now are numb and my feet and tingle.

Avatar n tn It happened on and off over long periods of time between each one.I have not had it for about 5years anyway it has just happened again I picked up the mop done two stokes across the floor and the pain in my thumb there it was the dark blue vein and the thumb swelled up and has now gone all red.
Avatar f tn Fine tremors can also be caused my mercury poisoning. Do you have amlagam/mercury fillings in your mouth? have you ever had a heavy metal test? I have started to get my fillings replaced and my "fine tremors" have begun to lesson, although not gone. They started about 3 years ago. ALSO if you are undiagnosed hypo or hyper thyroid..a sigh of hyper is tremors as well. And you can 'swing" back and forth between hyper and hypo. What have you deduced since you first posted?
Avatar f tn When I had my MRI, it was noticed that I had a bulging disc between C-4 and C-5 and C-5 and C-6. I am absolutely convinced this is not related to the sun (though I AM a sunworshipper) but is a nerve thing. I was on Lyrica for a while and it helped a little but did not take care of the itching totally. I found out about ice last year and it was a life saver (though it’s not fun to get up in the middle of the night and go sit in one’s family room holding ice packs on one’s arms for 20 minutes!!).
Avatar f tn I know that sounds weird, but it wasn't a typical twitch, but a pulse that occurred intermittently for awhile and moved back and forth between one eye and the other. The first time it happened I became totally alarmed and ultimately went to my ophthalmologist who could find nothing wrong. It happens every once in awhile without warning and I have sort of become used to it, but I have no other explanation. And yes, my mental focus has dwindled significantly.
Avatar f tn I am having the similar problems. I feel dizzy and then my heart starts racing and I feel like I need to have a bowel movement. It is very scary. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/235578'>VAGUS NERVE and STOMACH or HEART LURCHES (spasms)</a>.
