Osteoarthritis and tendonitis

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis and tendonitis


Avatar f tn I've had mri's of my spine and shows osteoarthritis with bone spurs in cervical thoracic and lumbar. This was done in 2007 (i was 35), now i have this horrible tendonitis in both wrists and i'm on prednisone. Could this be related to the arthritis? i'm seeing an ortho but he doesn't know about the osteoarthritis (i was just rereading my reports and it jumped out at me). What should i expect with this diagnosis? I have terrible neck pain and headaches and numbness on left side of body.
Avatar f tn said it's dequervain's tendonitis. I have redness, swelling, and slight bruising, but no pain in my wrist. ( also there was no injury ) I have been wearing a splint and taking nsaid's for 3 days now with no improvement. Does anyone know what is wrong with my thumb?
1459410 tn?1285698605 I have it at a relatively young age, and was prescribed celebrex, which I hate the headaches from and stomach pain (and its not all that effective) which irritates my stomach ulcer. All my doc said was to up the protonix.

900662 tn?1469393905 PRP therapy offers a solution to accelerate healing of tendon injuries and osteoarthritis naturally without subjecting the patient to significant risk so your orthopedician is trying to heal your tendoachilles and as he had said surgery is the last option for you. There are many growth factors present in your blood, however cumulatively they accelerate tissue and wound healing so platelets rich plasma is given to accelerate growth. Take care!
203342 tn?1328740807 I really don't want this to get worse and am worried because my grandmother and mother had osteoperosis and osteoarthritis and I just want to do what I can to get stronger and maybe even reverse things or at least keep things from getting worse. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!
Avatar m tn I've used it on my knees before and after surgery and it didn't work for that. However, my dentist used it on my jaw for TMJ pain and it worked for that. So to answer your question, I think it really depends on you and your body. Some people may have some success, while others may not. I hope that makes sense....
1550149 tn?1340004330 One of the major causes of arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis and other related diseases and disorders are high toxic levels, from toxic drugs and foods, toxins the environment, etc. A common finding in arthritis is bacterial and candida overgrowth in the digestive system, which is called "gut dysbiosis.
415109 tn?1304893782 I had similiar episode 3 years ago with (L) that eventually required surgery and has never bothered me since. I did go through 3 injections prior to the surgery and each time it helped for a short time. I am leery of getting steroids as I know they can do more damage than good but I am oh so tired of this. I have not injured it that I know of although in Feb 07 I fell down a flight of stairs and broke 2 fingers in that hand so I am wondering if it is just arthritis from that??
203342 tn?1328740807 The last couple of months I noticed pain in my upper right arm and some limited motion so I went to the doctor last week and he thinks I have tendonitis in my rotator cuff and put in a referral for Physical Therapy.

272434 tn?1228610809 I also have carpal tunnel and I have osteoarthritis. Both very painful, and I also need surgery, and I told them not right now. I take a long time to heal, and that alone is enough for me not to have surgery. I also use splints at night, and I have had to cut back on my quilting, but I refuse to stop all together. The osteoarthritis I have in all of my joints as well as RA, I have a triple whammy.

Avatar m tn live with severe chronic pain; Osteoarthritis and Tendonitis. I've been in recovery and sober for years. I have P.T.S.D. and have been told by doctors it's what causes my hyper-sexual ability that my girlfriend hates. With the exception of my pain my physical/ sexual health is fine. I don't like taking anything except vitamins, supplements for health benefit & Tylenol/Motrin for pain, but sometimes when the pain gets to the extreme I need to take a Norco or Vicodin.
Avatar n tn There are two conditions which cause pain while at rest or sleeping. One is arthritis, preferably osteoarthritis and the other is tendonitis. This is typically seen in osteoarthritis in initial stages. Being overweight also adds to the strain on ankle joint and hastens the wear and tear of cartilage. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.

Avatar n tn This means getting up, showering, going to my job (same one I have done for 27 years), coming home, preparing dinner and normal household chores. It has become more and more difficult just to get out of bed and by the time I take a shower I feel totally exhausted. Some days are worse than others. I have chest pain and on May 29th went to the emergency room because I became light headed while in the store with my chest hurting.
Avatar f tn They tell me everything from osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and just from being overweight. I had an MRI. I put ice on it after walking or exercising and take Tylenol or Advil.
Avatar f tn Im a 29yr old female and have severe pain in many of my joints. Mostly hips and ankles but the grinding happens in my wrists often and sometimes my elbows. Funny that I wake up feeling worse than I do at the end of a long work day. After sitting in a comfy chair to long I cant stand up straight til after a few steps. Long car rides kill my hips and ankles because I cant keep them moving. Sometimes I feel like I am locking up.
Dinosaur First off, you need a diagnosis. Most likely this is osteoarthritis but other types of arthritis or even tendonitis are also possible. Discuss this with you physician and if you do not get the answer you are looking for then request a referral to a rheumatologist (a specialist in joint and autoimmune diseases). Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn Hi there and Welcome! I suffer from RA and a few other shoulder/elbow tendonitis issues. So, I can understand some of your pain. You are in a good place here at MH as there are many others who suffer serious pain. If you are ready to get off your opiates (or other meds) you are at the right place. You are on quite a few different meds and have many health issues, have you discussed this with your Doctor?
Avatar n tn i have pains along the waistline and the knee especially when it is cold .
Avatar m tn Another cause can be extensor tendonitis or inflammation of tendons that lead to the toes. Trauma and tight shoes and osteoarthritis are other causes. The spurs from osteoarthritis irritate the deep peroneal nerve. Gout a metabolic disease can cause pain across the top of the foot due to intense inflammation due to deposits of monosodium urate crystals in soft tissues and joints. Consult an orthopaedician for detailed assessment. Take care.
