Glucosamine tendonitis treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Glucosamine tendonitis treatment


798555 tn?1292791151 I've had reoccurring tendonitis for years, witch I believe was brought on from Hashimotos thyroid disease. When my thyroid labs are at the levels that work best for me, tendonitis is minimal. It could be possible (likely) that I have scare tissue on various tendon areas (muscles too) from being hypothyroid for years, so I am continuously learning to improve this tightness condition.

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn Sounds like you could possible have arthritis or tendonitis. Tendonitis will not show up on an Xray, and im not sure that it will show up on an ultrasound. Just because you see a hand surgeon does not mean you will have surgery. They are just more knowledgeable than most doctors when it comes to the hand, because that is all they work with and what they have studied most of their lives.
Avatar n tn I have arthritis, and something called ITB tendonitis. It could be what you have, it's from overuse also. For the pain, the ice is a good idea, gentle stretching of your legs and calves, resting. Try taking Tylenol with the Naproxin or Advil. Also you can try to Glucosamine/Chondrointin pills for joint pain.
Avatar f tn I have a friend who is a NP and she doesn't think narcotics are the best treatment for arthritis or fibromyalgia. There are others who disagree. And there are other things that can be done to manage arthritis, none of which are a cure, but put all together can help significantly. I'm not sure how old you are, how long you've had the arthritis and tendonitis, and who diagnosed it? Also, what things have you already tried to treat it? Most doctors don't go straight to prescribing oxycontin.
168348 tn?1379360675 As long as you are not allergic to seafood or shellfish you should consider trying a Glucosamine (and Chrondroiton if you can because they work really well together but can be $$$ AND it is shark cartilage so some may have a moral objection) supplement for your athritis. It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks or more for the Glucosamine supplements to do their job so persist and be patient. These supplements help rebuild the cushioning between joints. Search it.
Avatar n tn Really it could be a lot of things, arthritis being a big one, bursitis, and tendonitis. I have all three in my shoulder, no fun at all. I'm sorry they haven't been able to find anything. Sometimes a skilled physical therapist can do some tests and give you a good guess as to what it may be. I know it's very frustrating when they can't figure out what it is. I hope you get some answers!
Avatar f tn I have tried using Ben Gay at night and when the pain is intense and it seems to help. I have also started taking a mix of glucosamine/ condroiten (spelling) this helps, but does not eliminate the pain. I take Osteo-bioflex triple strnegth. I have also wrapped my feet in a heating pad, which helps me to stay active. I feel like me hands/ feet are swollen (but not to look at) and cold.
Avatar m tn There are a few other prescription meds: Altace 10mg 2x for blood pressure (typically runs 140/80), higher than the theoretical "normal" of 120/70 Altace also has a certain quality that protects the kidneys in diabetic patients. GLIMEPIRIDE 4 MG TABLET 1X, for blood sugar control, LOSARTAN-HCTZ 100-25 MG 1X for blood pressure and fluid retention, VENTOLIN HFA 90 MCG INHAL 18 GM 2 PUFFS 4-6 HOURS AS NEEDED (Only used rarely @ bedtime and upon awakening, sleep apnea), Tamsulosin HCL 0.
Avatar f tn i am just trying to get up the stairs without leaning on the wall right now, so athelete uhm no!
3054080 tn?1358726456 I already take a women's multivitamin, Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, and zinc, glucosamine and Chondroitin, and Omega 3. He did not make any of those recommendations to me, and I looked up what Citolopram is and it is an antidepressant! So, I guess he is saying that depression is causing my problems in addition to a supposed lack of sleep.
1459410 tn?1285698605 Im in PT to help as well but if anyone would like to share a short summary of their story from pre-diag symptoms through successful treatment, I would really like to see how the different docs have handled your speciific case. The most effective thing Ive done on my own was recently bought an herbal cream that has capsicum in it whihc has done more than any of the other pharma routes. Its still kinda unbearable but Ive at least noticed it being somewhat alleviated.
Avatar n tn just wanted to add that i also get pain in left forearm and it feels as if i have developed tendonitis in my left elbow. had emg done about a month ago, and it came back normal too. these doctors make me feel like i'm crazy!
Avatar n tn While not generally well-known or understood, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause a variety of muscle or joint-related symptoms. Hypothyroidism can create a variety of muscle and joint-related symptoms. Most commonly, these symptoms are due to swelling of the muscles, or swelling that is pressing on nerves.
Avatar n tn Questions- What are my projected treatment options? If time is an answer; what is an estimated time of recovery? What should I ask the physician, and is surgery inevitable? When do you believe I will be able to resume normal exercise? Thanks, and I'm extremely frustrated.
Avatar n tn I am 2 years status post treatment, 2nd year in a row with no trace in my blood. Thank God for that. But-I still have joint pain every day, still have low energy and now have developed DIABETES. I saw a rheumatologist as I had a positive rheumatoid factor. She said I do not have rheumatoid arthritis, no damage to the joints. Can't take nonsteroidals because I have damage to my liver. When I ask for something for the pain, I get treated like a drug seeker.
Avatar f tn MRI should also be obtained to better evaluate the extent of injury. Arthroscopy is the gold standard diagnostic tool for meniscal tears but may not be necessary. Treatment plan could be like small tears may be treated conservatively with rest, ice, bracing, and physical therapy. Larger tears and tears in patients who are competitive athletes and wish to return to competitive sport may require surgery. Hope this helps you. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar n tn Lupus isn't a disease with a clear etiology and consequentially a functional treatment, so what would you make with a diagnosis of Lupus? know that your immune system will learn and change with time, it can be altered by the environment you live in and even the things you eat. you can't do a lot more than working on that.
211940 tn?1267884866 But leaning more towards an arthritic condition or tendonitis I think. I don't know but I'm not so sure. Personally I was thinking more bone cancer as my family is riddled with it but I'm no MD.
Avatar n tn The first one is labeled MSM/Glucosamine, and contains 500 mg MSM and 500 mg d-Glucosamine Sulfate. The second one is labeled TriFlex and contains 1500 mg Glucosamine HCL, 1200 mg Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, and 900 mg MSM. I take each pill once a day. I plan to do further tests to try to narrow down the specific substance(s) in these pills that are actually helping me, and I'll post the results. It's unlikely, of course, that these supplements will help everyone in the same way.
Avatar n tn It started in my shoulders and has moved all over my body. I also had testicular cancer, and one treatment of chemo and syphillis last year. Rheuamtology tests have comeup negative and doctors are at a loss for what is going on. Am fully recovered at this time from both. Also beginning to feel numbness and tingling in my hands and fingers. Also it is not just cracking, there is strange movement and sometimes I have mild involuntary twitching though it is becoming more frequent.
975514 tn?1325001538 We are in Fall here where I live and looking forward to Winter. A low pressure system has moved in, so my body aches very bad. I have to change my treatment plan which includes exercise ideas for these months, so I can keep my mind and body happy. Thanks again for joining us FMsufferer. It's nice to meet you!
Avatar n tn I expressed my discomfort with the cam and that it was twisting my ankle all over the place and he told me that a cam was the appropriate treatment for this type of injury but that a cam doesn't fit everyone properly. He told me I could actually walk out of the office with nothing on my leg but don't walk,bump,twist or jolt the leg. Like that will happen. He offered to re cast the leg if it was more comfortable.
Avatar n tn I have seen 2 surgeons and both recommended surgeries after first trying more conservative treatment. I have been prescribed by one surgeon to undergo a PT course for 6 weeks. While I didn't start it yet, it's unlikely to help in my view. The first surgeon recommended a laminectomy and the 2nd one microdiscectomy. Is it worth going through one of these surgeries given my age and somewhat nagging pain, should PT fail (as I predict it will)?
Avatar n tn My general practitioner said it was normal the first year. The second year she said it was tendonitis and sent my to a chiropractor/physical therapist. He said it was my posture and tried to massage the knots out and give me the electrode whatever you call it therapy. That only made it worse. Then, he decided it wasn't my posture/muscles, but sounded like my bone (whatever that means?). I had to stop going because the problem was now all day everyday as opposed to once a week.
Avatar n tn I don't find sleeping in a chair comfortable enough to start the night in the chair. - In terms of treatment, I've seen two orthopedic surgeons, two chiropractors, PT clinic, exercise physiologists. I get a lot of assumptions that I'm talking about a lower back problem/sciatica which is complete wrong. I did have sciatica which a little bit of PT cleared up. - I've been on NSAIDs (ibuprofen and naproxen), muscle relaxers, antibiotics, neurontin, percocet, vicodin.
Avatar n tn Hi, I think, for me, it is where do I hurt less. I have traveled all over the world. Right now I am in St. Louis Mo. Fibro is in a mild state but a couple years ago when I moved here it was horrible and I was unable to get out of bed. Before that I was in Seattle WA. There I didn't know I had Fibro and just thought it was the flu. I could still get out everyday. I thought about trying New Mexico.
Avatar n tn I'm 41 years old non-smoker No history of migranes Current headaches (again, docs say stress induced but I have mine 80-90% of time). Has anyone had success with a Home treatment? (heat? ice?other)?
