Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain differential diagnosis


1225331 tn?1333365769 I scheduled an appt with my neuro for early April to discuss a differential diagnosis with him. It’s on the list for MS mimics. Several reasons why I’m kind of wondering if it is: About 2005 I started going to my doctor for shortness of breath. She thought it might be asthma & gave me albuterol. Since a little after that (about 2006?
Avatar m tn Is there a differential diagnosis for genital herpes that someone can do at home? Just for those cases where it's clearly not obviously herpes, with classic oozing sores, prodromes, etc. For example, I have a patch of skin about the size of my thumb that's red and sore, on the shaft near the glans. Been there a week. I thought it was poison ivy due to the way it felt (patchy, itchy mild bumps in a line, irritated, slight oozing from the skin), but it wasn't that bad.
Avatar n tn Aching pain at and below the patella. Difficulty straightening the knee. Pain is most servere when putting weight or pressure on it. Pain can be felt when climbing up the stairs, jumping, running and standing for prolonged periods. In addition, pain can be felt behind the knee cap. I've had blows to the front and side of the knees before when playing soccer. The Orthopaedic diagnosed me with having Patella Tendonosis. However, I'm seriously starting to doubt the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn In such a case there may be (a) strain (b) a partial tear (c) a full separation and the location must be determined by MRI. Differential diagnosis in an ER is to withdraw fluid from the area and examine this under a microscope to determine if there is blood present. Blood indicates miniscus damage. If not fluid is withdrawn and a period of immobilization is prescribed, usually with a velco bandage that attaches to the thigh and lower part of the leg with a metal hinge at the knee.
Avatar m tn About a month ago I was playing foot ball for my high school knee and upon trying to make a tackle I fell on the inside of my right knee. This was very painful and was hard to deal with the first day. My knee hurt all the time and was numb. I was evaluated by our school trainer, and she said there was no tearing of ACL or MCL. My concern is that at some points it still hurts like an immense burning pain. I don't get a lot of pain, but his is terrible.
Avatar f tn No not like I should. It goes as far as my knee, but most of the time , the pain is in my upper thigh. It just started 2 days ago. Thank you so much for responding. I went to seethe doctor about it , and they think that I pulled a muscle. But I am not sure if it is a pulled muscle or not. It kept me awake last night.
Avatar f tn Also the FLAIR technique adds little to the differential diagnosis. The calculation of magnetisation transfer ratio (MT ratio) may be useful to better characterise some entities, such as vasculitis, from multiple sclerosis. Differential diagnosis of multiple sclerosis: contribution of magnetic resonance techniques.
Avatar f tn (essentially partially blocked blood vessels) and only after an in-person evaluation by a physician can there be a true differential diagnosis.
Avatar n tn While the differential diagnosis would range from annular lichen planus(unlikely,no itching) to lyme erythema migrans(does not persist for this long), and vasculitis(leaves behind pigmentation), it would be prudent to get a biopsy for more clarity on the condition. Regards.
Avatar n tn This type of headache may cause pain on the head and face as referred pain from the neck. This may also be a headache secondary to an underlying musculoskeletal or arthritic pain. Do you have other associated symptoms like eye redness or tearing and nasal discharge? For how long do the headaches last? How would you describe th headcahes? Are they throbbing, stabbing or sharp?
Avatar m tn 1. Impingement syndrome and rotator cuff disease. 2. Rotator cuff calcific tendonitis. 3. Biceps tendonitis. 4. Superior labral anterior posterior (SLAP) lesions. Before we discuss further I would like to know few things; Where is your pain exactly if you have to point out with your index finger? What movements, if any, exacerbate your pain? Does your shoulder ever give way? Did your shoulder previously have pain, but is now only stiff?
Avatar f tn i'm a dancer and I can't extend my knee anymore. I don't know what I did to mess it up. but even laying down i have to force myself to extend it. every time i get it extended it sends sharp pain from the lower part of my knee up to my hip bone. I'm only 20 so the thought of knee replacement scares me half to death. I can't start my career in dance until my knee is back to normal.. i've tried icing it, stretching it, biofreeze you name it i've probably tried it.
Avatar n tn Scattered nonspecific bilatral supratentorial white matter lesions. Differential diagnosis includes sequelae of vascular headaches adn demelination from multiple sclerosis, although the lesions are not in a pattern that is particularily suggestive of multiple sclerosis. Anyone have any ideas what this means?
Avatar n tn X rays are images and can show radiolucent or opaque shadows. And only a differential diagnosis can be obtained from this. Lung nodules can occur due to local causes like recurrent lung infections and sometimes due to cancer of the lungs. They can also be seen in systemic diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis and scleroderma. Further evaluation will be based on whether the nodule is changing in size and systemic symptoms.
Avatar m tn I went to a new doctor tonight as I am beside myself with pain. She brushed me off and said it would only be urgent if one knee was giving me problems but becaues it was both I would be ok with time. At one point they said it was viral arthritis but I am just wanting some help. The blood tests said I do not have arthritis. I am allergic to anti histamines and wonder if the fluid is a reaction to something. Can anyone think of what might cause this issue at both knees at the same time.
