Avatar n tn Got all the pills and drained right knee. If its not better he has to cut.
Avatar n tn In addition, poor forefoot cushion and poor balance support of footwear can excentuate the pain. Try wearing runners whenever possible and avoid heels anytime.
Avatar m tn An orthopedic sx preforms a knee arthroscopy and debrides or cuts out the tear/smoothing the area. Popping,clicking and pain are symptoms of a tear. OTC anti inflamatories and elevating the knee reduces the swelling and pain.but will not heal the condition. If tear/damage is severe enough arthritis develops as menisci acts like a cushion between the knee joint.
Avatar f tn I would purchase one of those lumbar support cushions made for vehicles that go over or wrap around the seat. I had and have sciatica from scar tissue from my back surgery hitting my nerve. Before my surgery I had a herniated disc and a few bulging discs. Bulging discs aren't as bad as the herniated but when in certain body positions they could bulge out just a tad bit more which in turn could be enough to put pressure on your nerves.
Avatar n tn If I leave my knee bent too long It starts to ache. then I try to straighten it out it hurts a bit then I feel and hear a pop. Then the pain and ache goes away. What could this be?
Avatar n tn Seering pain shoots through my knee joint and down the sides of my knee. Have I dislocated my knee? Or is it something like a severe strain?
Avatar f tn I purchased a used carseat, drove over two hrs to pick it up, and when I got home I realized the head support cushion is missing. I really don't want to purchase a replacement just for the head rest. Does anyone have the a keyfit 30 head rest cushion?
Avatar f tn You should be fine i fell.
Avatar f tn Now as a 62 female, I find myself walking with a cane and my left knee is extremely painful. I consulted with 2 orthopedic MDs. The first one wanted to do joint replacement surgery. The second one said I am not a candidate for joint replacement surgery since I don't have kneecaps. He prescribed diclofenac potassium for the pain. What other options do I have? The MRI shows the beginning of arthritic changes, but I still have a good cushion between the bones.
Avatar f tn It acts as a cushion, shock absorber if you will - of the knee joint. In my opinion this may be the reason for your knee pain. You've required a lot of surgical intervention on that knee - it shows in your MRI. It's my guess they will try to treat your symptoms with non-invasive measures before preforming another surgery. Have you had steroidal or other types of injections in the knee? They may be a beginning treatment.
Avatar f tn HA is the natural substance found in the fluid that surrounds a healthy knee joint and helps cushion, lubricate, and protect the knee as you move throughout the day. You should not receive treatment with EUFLEXXA if you have: A known allergy to hyaluronate preparations, or knee joint infections, infections or skin disease in the area of the injection site.
Avatar f tn I will be doing a lot of traveling this summer, lots of airports; does an orthopaedic boot support both knee and ankle? I use Voltaren gel and take Tramadol twice a day.
604489 tn?1220023514 It can be tendonitis(irritation and inflammation of the tendons),bursitis(inflammation of the bursae i.e small sacs around the knee which cushion it),rheumatoid arthritis(diagnosed by ESR,CRP and Rheumatoid factor in the blood) and gout(a disease created by a buildup of uric acid in the joints). Without physical examination,it is difficult to confirm a diagnosis.Pls get yourself evaluated by a rheumatologist(joint specialist) as soon as possible.
Avatar m tn However, if your quality of life is poor and all other options have been exhausted. Knee replacement can be extremely effective. Whether, total knee, partial knee, or patellafemoral replacement is best can only be determined ny examining you and reviewing your xrays.
Avatar m tn sudsha One of the most common knee problems an Orthopedist sees in the office is a degenerative meniscus tear. A meniscus is a cushion inside your knee. It aids in stability of the knee and minimizing the stress across the knee, thus minimizing the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Meniscus tears are incredibly common. Although meniscus tears occur in all age groups, they are most common in adults over 50. There are many different types of meniscus tears.
Avatar m tn left knee has partly bone on bone degentrative disease almost no cushion left CAN U STILL HAVE THE NERVES FROZEN TEMPORARLY & FOR HOW LONG OR PERMANETLY?
Avatar m tn I'm afraid I don't have any experience with cod liver oil, so I can't comment on the benefits or risks/dangers it might have. As with any supplement or medication, I would definitely check with your doctor or pharmacist before trying it to make sure it won't interact with any medication you're on or medical condition you may have. Remember - just because it's a "natural" supplement, doesn't necessarily mean that it's safe or good for you.

Avatar n tn I know that I have some arthritis in my right knee which does seem to be more irritated since the pain in my buttock started. Is there an anything that I can do to help this situation as I do not have insurance? I should add that I am thin and in decent condition for my age, mid 50's.
Avatar f tn I lived in flip flops.
Avatar n tn Hi all, I am not sure why I am writing down all this. I guess I am looking for some support. It's been almost 5 months now since my high risk exposure. The anxiety gets worse and worse, so I finally decided to go back to my home country to do the final test. I've been tested negative after one week and 39 days. It didn't really give me much relieve. rather the opposite: I got so anxious that I couldn't go to a further test.
Avatar f tn Ok so bad knees run in my family and ive recently started getting pains in my left knee. I would get them occasionally kneeling on hard floors before i was pregnant but lately if i bend down to grab something they hurt and im a waitress so if im cleaning a booth ill kneel on it and i get shooting pains. I dont understand why because im kneeling on a cushion. Im 30 weeks pregnant as well and im just wondering if this is normal in pregnancy or if its the family history catching up to me??
1069378 tn?1255215132 , but my knee never healed and in fact the pain has spread to other parts of my knee and my knee swells very easily when I do anything (upright, sitting, sleeping). The MRI shows that my lateral meniscus is torn again and x-rays show I have osteoarthritis. One of the orthopedic surgeons I saw suggested trying Synvisc injections before resorting to surgery, especially since the surgery will involve removing the rest of my lateral meniscus which will in turn worsen the osteoarthritis.
587778 tn?1261397118 In the last two months, I began having pain on the inside of my knee that is tender to the touch. Even when I palpate the bone it hurts. My doctor sent me for an X-ray and it reveal mild osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn Because of the atrophy in my leg, I will have to wear a brace for the rest of my life and this brace seems to be the one that gives me the most support. I hope your knee is better and you do not have to wear a brace indefinitely but if you do, I recommend the Donjoy Defiance III. It is a custom fitted brace. Your doctor should be able to help. Best wishes to you and stay positive. You'll be fine...
