1175033 tn?1492204828 I went to Shriners hospital when I was 13ish, and one of the doctors there told me that I could need hip replacements by the age of 35. I didnt want to believe him, but now I starting to realize why he said that. I also have noticed reoccurring pains in alot of my joints along with stiffness and muscle spasms. I also have weird bone growths, on my ankle, heel, toe joints, finger joints, Im too young for all this. My sed rate always comes back normal.
Avatar n tn I have osteoarthritis and the only thing that I can do is walk and I can walk too fast or about an hour later I feel like my hip, sacreil joints, and knee's are so swollen that I can bend them or even get up and move around. Good Luck, this is some very awful stuff and I wish I knew how I ended up with it.
Avatar n tn Hi a year ago I visited my GP with left hip and upper thigh pain. 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.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I recently got an MRI after years of suffering and learned about disc displacement, one of them displaced all the time and it's torn. Pool exercise might help you some if they are joints that go underwater. And if you have knee arthritis, I saw on tv where I scientific study was done proving acupuncture can be a help.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Well, arthritis is a wide diagnosis and covers a range of etiologies. Degenerative or osteoarthritis can be worsened by physical activity but is unlikely to be caused acutely by a short term physical activity; though there is a possibility of this being occult for sometime and getting aggravated y some trigger factor. As for your symptoms it would be difficult to determine a cause without a detailed clinical evaluation.
Avatar m tn The last 4 years I was doing a lot of cycling and playing tennis too. However the doctor told me to try and stop these and only do some swimming and light walking. I am feeling that I cannot do much now and I want an opinion from an expert. I started going to gym , which has also a pool, thus I go one hour for weight training and one hour to the pool. However is cycling ok for what I have? Or can I still do? Of course as i understand i have to stop soccer and tennis...
Avatar m tn I was put on oxycontin for pain (with no help at least at the dose I am on) and given a cortisone injection in the bursa...this helped immensely for a bt 5 weeks than the hip and thigh pain started slowly returning after a lapse of approx 3 months my pain is WORSE than it was originally.....a NSAID helps somewhat but was told by my pain specialist NOT to take these, but when in pain I do what I can even with the risks...
Avatar n tn Well, pain and stiffness just after you get up after sitting is a sign of RA or osteoarthritis. You said you are very active and a cyclist, perhaps you injured your hips somehow. Resting while taking the anti inflamatory might work. Make sure you take the anti inflamatories with food as they can do damage to your stomach. If it comes back then have it checked out by a Dr. if you have insurance, x-ray, blood work for RA factor, CRP and Sed rate.
Avatar m tn This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
Avatar m tn Because I haven't taken care of my spine with stretching and exercise in the past decade - (due to MS and SSc etc.) it has worsened greatly, with my C-spine in danger of permanent damage. And believe me - I understand not liking the injections - I've had every type there is and nothing has helped.and now I can't even get physical therapy due to having medicaid - :( Try his suggestions (after consulting with your MD), and never give up.
Avatar m tn X-rays showed degeneration of both hips. I also have degeneration in the lower spine and in the neck. and osteoarthritis in both knees, but my right leg is worst. Osteoarthritis in other joints too (fingers and feet). The more I stand and walk about the worse it gets. I also get the pain in the lower belly as if things are pulling down. The pain radiates down through both legs. Doc says this is reffered pain from my back.
Avatar f tn He doesn't understand why I have pain in this spot and that spot when I do something and it gets better and I do the same exercise and the pain gets worse and/or moves around and the type of pain gets worse and changes. He is sure it is now soft tissue and he has changed my appointment to next week instead of 2 months. I will mention about bursa and ask about tendons but he seems sensitive to the idea if I mention it.
Avatar m tn Hello Everyone. I want to share my hip problem ordeal with everyone. Each person and each diagnosis is different, but maybe someone out there could benefit from what I have learned from my pain experience. I am a 25 years old male. I have been dealing with hip pain since I was a child on and off. I ran cross country and track in high school. Every season that I could remember, I was plagued by a nagging pain deep in my left buttocks.
1448748 tn?1312959808 --- or if not something that would have changed in 5 months something that would progress and be causing low back and hip pain, respond to some anti inflammatory and then suddenly cause severe leg pain that could be generated in the Hips or lower(because I never had any imaging of the hips or lower) oh yeah and yesterday my knee also.. and I have done no strenuous exercise at all Sorry for such a long post.. dont know if anyone can help or not but any help is appreciated.
Avatar m tn The bursae in the hip is the largest in the body and when inflamed can be extremely painful. When mine flares up the sharp pain in my hip can bring me to my knees. A quick injection of a corticosteroid can produce miraculous results. Your PCP can refer you to a specialist that can take care of this for you. In the meantime ice may help relieve the inflammation along with rest and NSAID's taken as directed on the label. Sometimes I can avoid an injection if I follow that routine.
Avatar f tn All this leads to cartilage damage, inflammation and osteoarthritis. Hyperflexibility and hypermobility inturn would lead to arthritis and destruction of the joint.The classic diagnostic technique is with appropriate x-Rays and hip scoring tests. Treatment initially involves non-surgical approach.Non-surgical interventions include three elements: weight control, exercise control, and medication. Carprofen and meloxicam are the most commonly used NSAID's. Prednisolone can also be used.
Avatar f tn I have pain constantly, and it never eases off at all, unless I put the stickers/plaster on me that seem to go deep into the bone... Their called " Vorwerk, Chilly Brand " - Porous cansicum plaster - I have since been told I have hip bursitis from a rheumatoligst, and he gave me 6 costizone shots in one day, 2 went in my hip bones, 2 went in my back bones, and 2 in the butt bones, The cortizone needles didn't work at all...
Avatar n tn When it is bothering me (2-3 days/wk), I can have weird numb/tingling feelings all down my right leg and dull achy pain in my hip joint. It has not really been severe enough to warrant taking pain meds...but I don't really like medicines. When I was younger (age 8-10 ish) I remember my parents getting on to me about laying with my feel pointed inward toward each other when I slept. I am only slighly pigeon-toed now with no externally visual twisting....
Avatar m tn o Engage in regular weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercise. o Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol. o Talk to your healthcare provider about your bone health concerns. o Have a bone density test and take medication when appropriate. Lactose Intolerance and Osteoporosis Calcium is a mineral that is essential for life, yet the majority of Americans do not get adequate calcium on a daily basis.
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I have some osteoarthritis and have had a hip replacement 4 yrs ago, in the last year I have becomed very fatigued, muscle pain especially in arms, shoulder area, hands and feet, I have very little energy to go to gym anymore, I heard that 50% of people with fibromyalgia also have low thyroid, even though my thyroid test shows normal, could thyroid medication help?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if there is anyone out there who has had surgery for SCFE as a child and is now suffering from early onset arthritis and constant hip pain. I am 29 years old and has two surgeries to repair SCFE when I was 10 and 13. I was slightly overweight (not obese) as a child, which I have been told was a contributing factor. I was told to resume normal physical activity shortly after the second surgery, which I had done and continue to do.
Avatar m tn That means that there is no major damage in any of the joints for you to be offered joint replacement surgery at the moment. The condition that you have is likely to be osteoarthritis and this is due to ageing, wear and tear and can happen if you had any injuries as a young person. Don't stop moving because you will get more stiff. If you experience acute pain, then you will need to take more rest and take things slowly.
Avatar n tn i have been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis b and also experience joint pain the rhuematism test came back a low positive and my knees are filling with fluid and hurt to stand up and down and throb and i also have other joint pain i am assuming this is caused by the hepatitis b the rhuematologist said it could be but wasn;t sure. whats up with you? do you have hep b? i need the liver biopsy as well i was told i have an 8mm tumor and that it was probably a hemangioma.
Avatar n tn Hello, Your mother seems to be having osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that is caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. Cartilage is a protein substance that serves as a "cushion" between the bones of the joints. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis. Treatment includes reduction of weight, exercise and support devices like splints, canes, walkers, and braces.
Avatar n tn Today I read where psoriasis and Crohn's can be related. I am a borderline Crohn's patient with psoriasis and severe arthritis in my hip and pelvic area, causing night pain; excrutiating pain in the groin, pelvic & hip area. Have to flop over in bed because it hurts for the mattress to touch that side. Also, with having DDD, do you think that nerve entrapment could be causing this or just arthritis?
Avatar n tn I've been tested for Ra, lupus, and I have osteoarthritis in my spine.I am having all these joint problems and don't know why. I have bee seeing my physiotherapist for all of it and she thinks That if I get on some thyroid med, things will help to get straightened out. My Dr. doesn't think its from my thyroid. Anyway, my physiotherapist is sending me to a muscoskelotol doctor to see what he says. I don't know why I am not being treated for my thyroid and what about my hashi disease.
Avatar f tn It's been 6 weeks since I last posted and my doctor is now giving me 50mg 4x a day for my neck pain. It really helps my pain, but I have 0 appetite. I like the way I feel pain wise, but I can't do this anymore....gonna try an Osteopathy Doctor.
Avatar n tn I have since gotten worse and still not returned to work. My neck and shoulders, arm and hand all hurt worse now. My middle, ring and pinky finger all go numb at times. I drop things without knowing my hand opens or can feel it do so. If I lay on my side to sleep it hurts, if I sit too long in one position it hurts and if I walk with my arm to my side it hurts. I also have muscle aches in my hip pelvis area. My leg muscles are weak. I can not climb stairs without stopping after a couple.
Avatar n tn I've seen suggestions for fish oil, daily exercise, chiropractic adjustment, hip replacement, blood diseases, fibromyalgia, and more. It doesn't appear that the condition is understood by the medical profession yet. Anyone come up with a reliable course of action?
