Osteoarthritis causes of pain

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis causes of pain


Avatar m tn My question is whether anyone can tell me if osteoarthritis in the lower spine can cause grabbing, debilitating pain that causes the patient to cry out it is so severe. These pains act like pinched nerves, but MRS and Neurological testing shows no nerve damage from the spine. The regular arthritis pain increases gradually when the patient is walking and prevents walking altogether after about 15 yards. The grabbing pain is additional to the regular pain. The only relief for the pain is sitting.
Avatar f tn New study proves that pain is not a symptom of osteoarthritis, pain causes arthritis Pain is more than a symptom of osteoarthritis, it is an inherent and damaging part of the disease itself, according to a study published September 29* in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism. link to article: http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?
Avatar m tn I understand your concern regarding your symptoms. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and it causes pain, swelling, and reduced motion in the joints. if there is no pain associated with the joint cracks or pops, this may be caused by the soft tissue in a joint. Knee popping may also occur if the patella is slightly out of alignment, and rubs on the adjacent tissues. Other causes of joint noise is the snapping of tendons or scar tissue over a prominence, or cavitation.

Avatar m tn For chronic pain look into supplementing with malic acid, as it's production in your system is inhibited by high levels of tartaric acid-a muscle toxin that causes pain and fatigue-. For acute pain DMSO (lab grade, 30% solution to distilled water, 10% for neck and up, one light application without rubbing over freshly washed skin) Best is to adapt a low carb diet , as carbs feed yeast metabolites that fuel the production of tartaric acid.
Avatar n tn Also degeneration between same discs shows on the X-rays. I experience pain, especially in the 2 areas that lead to neck and headaches. What other areas of my body does this affect? I do on occasion experience numbness and tingling in both hands and fingers, but will stop when massaged. So, I am looking for other symptoms in my body resulting from the spurs touching nerves in both areas. Thank you. John.
Avatar n tn Technique - Multiple pulse MRI sequences were performed in multiple planes through the cervical spine without administration of intravenous contrast. Findings - There is no evidence of acute fracture, subluxation, or dislocation. The vertebral body heights, intervertebral spaces and alignment of the spine are maintained. The prevertebral soft tissues are within normal limits. At C1-C2 - No abnormalities are seen. At C2-C3 - There is no evidence of disc herniation.
Avatar n tn Hi, Do you have any other symptoms? These may a sign of autoimmune disease like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, or gout, viral or bacterial infection of joints. I would suggest you to please schedule an appointment with an orthopedic doctor as soon as possible. In the meantime you can take OTC NSAIDS, they will help reduce the joint swelling and pain. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi there! Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your pain. Pain around the rib region could be caused due to infections, inflammations, nerve impingement/ muscular causes, referred pain from other regions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
432312 tn?1265648574 I am over weight as my back pain sometimes causes me to not want to move at all. Ok here is my question. I think I have arthritis of some sort. I have been to many doctors. Sometimes they tell me that it must be a symptom of my MS. My MS doctor says that it could be but that since he isn't a back doctor he doesn't know. Mostly my lower back is affected. a dull ache that doesn't go away. Standing makes it much worse.
Avatar m tn I'm also feeling some pain and kind of a numb/weak feeling in my ankles. Is is common for osteoarthritis to spread quickly like this? I'm just worried it's something more serious.

Avatar f tn It can be like the chicken and the egg - stress causes pain, pain causes more stress, which causes more pain, etc. Make stress management part of your overall self-care plan. It won't hurt, and it might help. It sounds like you've been doing a lot of research into your symptoms. It's absolutely a good thing to educate yourself, however if you don't know what your dealing with, navigating the confusing labyrinth of symptoms and possible causes can increase your anxiety.
Avatar n tn The symptom of yours that stands out to me is the symmetry of your hand problems. Also Osteoarthritis is usually more prevalent in the last joint at the finger tip but I certainly am not a Dr. It is also not usually symmetrical. Take care and let us know.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know what might be causing the elevation and palpatations. Raitonlizing all I see is pain / therapy/ meds/ helping little by little, the elevation of ANA is still scary ...Dr. suggests if problem persists, see a rheumatologist. I also have fibromyalgia. The therapist seems to think it's osteoarthritis ....on her level. Thanks .
Avatar f tn Hi there, I can confirm the exact cause of your condition only after I clinically examine you. The common causes of ankle pain are tendonitis, ankle sprain, arthritis, fracture etc. Is there swelling also? A traumatic injury or ankle sprain is common cause of ankle swelling and pain. Other causes are rheumatoid arthritis, gout, vascular obstruction etc.In osteoarthritis there are degenerative changes and damage to the articular cartilage.

Avatar n tn Probably it's worse at night when she lays on the sore body parts and the pressure causes more pain? Does she use an eggcrate mattress?
Avatar f tn If your bone doctor says you have legs of a 25 year old then you have good bone density.
Avatar f tn What do you do when your active life has turned to sitting because the pain is so bad that you can not walk or exercise? I have no range of motion in hips so the pain is constant. I have knees that are in gripping pain when walking. I really do not know where to start. I have fibromyalgia which adds to the problems with great fatigue. Exercise is only in water but in the winter I can not drag myself to the gym to do this. Summer I have a pool and it helps a lot.
1956614 tn?1325869001 I also realized that when I get in the car and we are driving around I start to feel pain and pressure in the back of my head, and headache. I just don't want to rush to have all these test and be in the hospital again, if I don't need to.
Avatar f tn Where the V line begins and wraps around the top of my hip to the back, near my back dimple. It is a pressure pain, on the inner side of the bone, not the outside of the hip, it's hard to explain, but it's as if there is pressure from in-between hip and side, pushing out both ways and I get this pain in both hips and often times it will last anywhere from 30 minutes to hours until I rest or sit down, which sometimes even sitting causes pain.
Avatar f tn I would suggest you please discuss the possibility of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis with her orthopedic specialist. Take care!
Avatar f tn Pain in left shoulder and left side of neck. Severe stiffness on waking up and find it difficult to move.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Pain or soreness in the middle of the foot is generally indicative of plantar fasciitis. The first step you take generally after sitting or standing for a long time or when you get up from the bed is painful. As you start walking the pain clears up. Plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. If it swells, becomes weak or inflamed, it causes these symptoms. After some time, you may feel pain always.
Avatar n tn If it swells, becomes weak or inflamed, it causes these symptoms. After some time, you may feel pain always. The other possibility is osteoarthritis. This also causes pain worse after inactivity—the first few steps always painful. Please consult an orthopedic specialist regarding this. Other causes of foot pain can be rheumatoid arthritis, faulty arch, ligament tears, fractures, and gout. If possible consult a sports injury center.
