osteoarthritis

Avatar m tn I have also had very itchy testicles. I have been tested for stds so its not that. The pain in the groin is constant and get pretty severe at times. The testicle pain is horrible. Any idea what this could be? Could it be some type of infection?
199980 tn?1233801004 My orthopedic surgeon told me the classic symptoms of a degenerated hip joint is pain in the groin. I couldn't cross my legs and the groin pain was quite constant.. As it turned out, after x-rays, I had a badly degenerated bone on bone hip joint, After a total hip replacement the pain went away. Unfortunately the trauma involved was what, in my case, apparently triggered my MS. Not all groin pains are related to the hip though.
Avatar n tn In January I went to the doctor for groin pain and it was discovered that I have several kidney stones. Since then I have been to the ER several times for intense flank pain. The groin pain\pressure that I have almost never disappears. My urologist says that the groin pain\pressure that I have is not from the kidney stones. However, the groin pain is worse a few weeks before and a few weeks after the intense flank pain. It is seriously affecting my life.
Avatar f tn I would say your groin pain is probably over use of your legs and upper thighs were your groin area is. My recommendations to get rid of the pain would be to take a break from the leg exercises for about a week or two, so you don't strain it even more. Use a warm heat compress to help and you can also use some muscle rub too. Also over the counter ibuprofen would help with the groin pain. If it doesn't get better within a week or two, I would suggest going to your doctor.
Avatar m tn He had a cortisone injection which seems to be helping somewhat. He never really had hip pain but instead had groin pain which apparently is common. While the pain has lessened, the lymph node or swelling in the groin area has increased significantly. It looks as though someone inserted an egg under his skin in the groin. Is that ever going to go away or will is just stay swollen until he finally has the hip replacement?
Avatar m tn I meant to add that hip deterioration is often mistaken for pelvic pain because the hip joint angles in toward the groin/pelvis at the top of the thigh bone. If you're having pain in the "leg crease" between your thigh and pelvis, that's your hip joint.
Avatar f tn About 1 and 1/2 years ago I was told I had osteoarthritis this was after several tests X-rays, ultrasounds and the experimental cortisone injections in the joint and in the tendon. The decision was then made to have a total hip replacement. The recovery went well and I progressed fairly quickly, however I always seemed to have a pain in my groin, I mentioned this but it was always put down to the procedure it's self and that it should settle.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Sharp groin and hip pain with limited and painful internal rotation of the thigh along with tingling can be due to several causes (not cancer) such as: osteoarthritis, tendonitis, muscle pull and strain, femoral neck stress fractures, sports hernia or hidden/occult hernia of oblique aponeurosis, or Obturator or ilioinguinal nerve entrapment.
Avatar n tn The first time this time had to take time off, couldn't lift my leg, and the pain went into my right groin area.. Dr thought it might be a hernia, because the pain returned after lifting at work, and is triggered everytime I do heavy lifting. Had a CT, only said I had some osteoarthritis in hip, but not that bad. Had a sling put in to hold bladder. When I have the pain, it is painful to have a bowel movement. Have had two heart caths, both on that side. Getting very frustrated.
Avatar n tn It is difficult to assess the cause of pain. Pain in the front portion of hip (groin), thigh and knee can be due superficial nerve compression (lateral femoral cutaneous nerve), that comes from the hip area and gets pinched. This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts. Losing some weight or wearing loose clothes and belts often helps relieve the pain/numbness/tingling.
Avatar n tn Some before and now more intensly after I had an abdominal hystertomy 9 months ago. I have had a terrible time with back pain, hip and groin pain, pain down my legs and slipping of the knee and both hips. I can not walk or move quickly, turn, sit, stand or bend without severe pain and locking of my hip. After two steriod injections (pirisformis and bursa) ,months of PT and about 20 Chiroptactic appointments, my knee feels better and my back only hurts if I overdue anything.
Avatar n tn When my left leg goes back it hurts. When I go to sit down and stand up it hurts. 9/10 pain. very sharp, stabbing pain. when I am lying down and move my body to a certain position it hurts. It doest hurt when I cough, and my PA was feeling around down there and didnt feel anything pop or move around. When I was getting xrays done....the lady had me lay down and drop my left leg to its side and it was extremely hurt. Do you have any ideas on what is wrong? My PA was sure what was wrong.
Avatar n tn guy, my chiropractor, and he said he didn't have any reason to believe I was having joint problems and says I really pulled something in my groin. Now, it seems I'm having some pain in the outer parts of my butt, and pain down my leg when I put pressure on my leg. I sometimes have to hold on to the wall just to walk. It will loosen up a bit after awhile. I'm having to tak 4 advil in the morning and 4 at night just to get through the day. sitting is, no real pain there.
Avatar n tn The symptoms you describe of neck/arm/leg pain, proximal muscle weakness and numbness in the middle/ring/pinky are more extensive than would be expected in carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve entrapment at the wrist). Given your pain and proximal muscle weakness, I would evaluate you for an inflammatory myopathy (inflammtory cells attacking muscles).
Avatar n tn I WAS UNABLE TO CROSS MY RIGHT LEG OVER THE TOP OF THE LEFT KNEE.WITHIN A FEW MONTHS IT PROGRESSED TO PAIN IN THE LOW BACK AND GROIN, PARTICULARLY WITH STANDING. X-RAYS, MRI, AND BONE SCAN WERE NEGATIVE. HOWEVER, MRI OF THE L4-L5 INDICATED SPINAL STENOSIS. I HAD EPIDURALS AND INJECTION OF CORTISONE IN THE RIGHT HIP JOINT,BUT NEITHER RESOLVED THE PAIN IN THE BACK OR GROIN. AFTER A YEAR OF PALLATIVE TREATMENTS,I HAD A MICRODISECTOMY . IT DID RELIEVE THE SPINAL STENOSIS.
Avatar m tn If the pain is in your groin, this is the location of the true hip joint, and the common causes of pain are a torn labrum and osteoarthritis. It the pain is outside on your side, this is not really a true hip problem. Here the the likely causes are trochanteric bursitis, pyriformis syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, and low back pain. Problems with the joint are often treated with surgery; outside the joint is more likely to respond to physical therapy.
Avatar n tn it sounds like you have bursitis. Arthritic hip pain usually gives you groin pain, not lateral hip pain, worse when laying on it. I'd go to the doctor and ease your mind.
Avatar f tn I get a pain around my right side groin area and my skin hurts too. It only lasts for a couple of days and then it goes away. It happens about once a month. I've had a hysterectomy.
Avatar m tn Tai chi is a tame form of martial arts, but it's your best defense against pain. Since pain and stiffness can worsen with either excessive movement or inactivity, this gentle movement strikes the perfect balance. In a University of North Carolina study, people who performed a tai chi program regularly for eight weeks saw significant improvements in arthritis pain, stiffness, and sleeplessness due to pain.
Avatar f tn QUITE A FEW MONTHS AGO I STARTED GETTING ACHES IN BOTH LEGS, I PUT IT DOWN TO THE MENOPAUSE, ANYWAY 6 WEEKS AGO THE PAINS SEEMED TO BE GETTING WORSE I HOPED IT WOULD GO AWAY, 3 WEEKS AGO I NOTICED MY LEFT KNEE WAS PAINFUL AND SWOLLEN, MY DOCTOR SENT ME FOR AN XRAY I HAD GOT MODERATE OSTEOARTHRITIS OF MY KNEE, UNFORTUNATELY AT THE MOMENT I HAVE TO HOLD ONTO SOMETHING TO GET UP OUT OF A CHAIR AND A STRUGGLE TO CLIMB STAIRS, WHILST SITTING I GET PAIN IN OTHER LEG I AM ONLY 55 BUT I FEEL ABOUT 70, I
Avatar f tn I have hip pain in my left hip and front pelvic area. About a week now. Sometimes going down my left leg. When I try to stand it is worse. If I am sitting still it sometimes hurts a little. I have tried heat, that doesn't help. I have tried aspirin, that doesn't help. As I start walking it sometimes eases a bit. When I turn over in bed it is painful.
Avatar n tn In females, menopause or menopause like condition caused by PCOD is often associated with Vit D and calcium disturbances and hormonal disturbances causing multiple joint pain. Al these can make you fatigued and tired too. Chronic fatigue syndrome can also cause visual symptoms. Since you have multiple lymphnodes and joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis should be ruled out. The best thing would be to consult a general practitioner or PCP and try and assess what is the cause of your problem.
Avatar f tn It feels very lumpy round the top of my thigh, and occasionally when walking I have a shooting pain in this area and my leg gives way from underneath me.
Avatar n tn If it persists, see your doctor, or find and orthopedist. FYI, the hip joint itself is located in the groin, pain out to the side, or in your lower back, are not usually from your hip.
Avatar f tn It may also be worth getting an xray done to find out if your lower spine and hips are OK. Osteoarthritis in the hips can be felt as groin pain.
4251682 tn?1351733043 I have a pain in my knuckles, wrist, elbow, shoulder, groin, knee, ankle and toes, all on my right side tonight. What could this be?
Avatar f tn i have bad hip pain in my right side, it sometimes goes down my leg and into my foot and when this happens it is hard to walk on. it has started to go over to my left side now. can u help?
Avatar n tn If this is an acute pain then it can be due to any injury, fall and involvement of muscles and ligaments and for this you would need MRI for diagnosis. If you have this since long then rule out bursa involvement. Wait for your lab results and rule out Rheumatoid arthritis, Rheumatic fever, osteoarthritis and go for a spinal X-ray and MRI of lower spine and hip. Take care!
