1459410 tn?1285698605 I did cortisone shots, medication and ended up doing a joint replacement in my left hand (at the thumb joint), which failed. Nine surgeries have followed along with getting RSD, probably from so many surgeries. I've been in PT, OT and now pain management. I also get different procedures done and am on a ton of pain medication. I can no longer work and my quality of life has really changed. I'm still processing it and still trying to learn new ways to do things.
1332153 tn?1275377417 Have you been told you have rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis? I think the best thing for you to do is see a rheumatologist about your joint pain to find out what is causing it. Have the rheumatologist consult with your stomach doctor to decide what can relieve your pain without making your stomach worse. Good luck!

Avatar f tn Hi there :) have flare-up of osteoarthritis in knee after being diagnosed formally when I had an arthroscopy a few months ago. Just wondered how long pain and subsequently being out of action may last for? Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful. Thank you so much.

284190 tn?1268329733 It is very common in adults older than 45 and can cause joint pain. Joint pain may also be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the bursae). The bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone. For nonarthritis joint pain, both rest and exercise are important. Warm baths, massage, and stretching exercises should be used as frequently as possible. Anti-inflammatory medications may help relieve pain and swelling.
Avatar n tn For about the last 3 years I have had random bouts of joint pain. I have been to my PCP and a rheumotologist. My thyroid levels are normal, no rheumotoid factor, normal ANA, no lyme, no iron deciciances, normal blood sugar No fevers Pain comes and goes with no Rhyme or reason, severity varies, place of pain varies wrist knees shoulders back neck fingers muscles. I don't respond to any medicines. No change in diet works, no patterns can be traced. Often there is fatigue.
Avatar n tn Go find out what you're putting in your body that you shouldn't be! 2) However, new diet didn't change the joint problem. Still have chronic pain, dislocating/popping/grinding joints that make me want to scream sometimes, fatigue (though less fatigue now with better diet), swelling of joints - especially hands, rashes on hands, and butterfly rash on face that comes and goes. I can now cross off "try new diet for joint condition" off my list.
Avatar n tn Of course, I've had the usual side effects (dryness, depression, lethargy.) My main problem now is severe joint pain. I lift weights 5x per week. I don't want to stop working out, but my right elbow and both shoulders are killing me! Has anyone had experience with this and can you recommend medicine or treatment for the joint pain? I employ high intensity training (low reps, hight weight) but can change my lifting to lighter weight, with higher weights. But I can not stop lifting.
Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
476246 tn?1418874514 Not very much, but it is a little uncomfortable. The middle joint of my right middle finger has been hurting for about a week and is slightly swollen. It is getting a little worse every day. It feels a bit hotter to the touch, than the others. (I did NOT hit or twist this finger) Does anyone know what this could be? It kind of sounds like the onset of RA or RA in a mild form to me??? Could that be right? FYI, I'm seeing my doctor about it next week.
Avatar f tn No I haven't had the vitamin D cause me to have achy bones however when I had my first hip Xray I found I have mild osteoarthritis. So I think the osteoarthritis I do feel aches in the hip bones. I had a lot of fatigue as well and found out last year I have become hypothyroid. So I don't know if you had your thyroid tested or not? If not it would good to check and get a hip Xray to see if you also have osteoarthritis. That may be the culprit. Even mild osteoarthritis can cause some pain.
Avatar m tn Acetaminophen/Paracetamol (Crocin - brand name popular in India) may also be used to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by the breakdown of the lining of the joints). Acetaminophen is in a class of medications called analgesics (pain relievers) and antipyretics (fever reducers). It works by changing the way the body senses pain and by cooling the body." Again talk to her doctor it depends on her complete health.
Avatar n tn HI there For the past year and a half I have felt my joint areas degenerating - there is a lot of cracking in all my joints at all time at this stage. All day every day and night. It started in my shoulders and has moved all over my body. I also had testicular cancer, and one treatment of chemo and syphillis last year. Rheuamtology tests have comeup negative and doctors are at a loss for what is going on. Am fully recovered at this time from both.
Avatar f tn The only thing is different it that I began birth control for the first time ever and a month after I started taking them the joint pain started. But I highly doubt that birth control has anything to do with this all over joint pain.
Avatar m tn I completely changed my diet prior to seeing the first rheumatologist, and the joint pain got better. 8 months later, my joint pain is not much of a problem (although I can still feel pain). The real problem now is the excessive popping in my wrists, shoulders, and jaw. Just as the joint pain did, the popping started in my wrists, eventually moved to my shoulders, and is now in my jaw as well. I cannot do much of anything without the popping.
Avatar m tn Anyway, I am literally off all meds and occasional antiinflammatory. I decided to change my diet and look for food sensitivites that could cause my inflammation. My sed rate went to normal after 5 years of meds and no results. This is someting to think about. Maybe it could help you too.
4226456 tn?1354123528 Today it is hurting where my inner thigh connects to the hip joint, but the hip joint also seems to pop out all together, only for a couple excruciating seconds, when I first stand up.
192055 tn?1263559137 took one of my neck muscles and wrapped it around my collarbone and rib to hold it in place, to make my SC joint a stable joint. The surgery went well- as in it IS a stable joint.... ALTHOUGH I am having some complications. I have to go back to the doctor to get some xrays and mri's done... I have some clicking in my SC joint. My physical therapist thinks that it could be my bones rubbing together...
Avatar f tn A few include keeping body weight under control, avoiding mechanical injury, exercises to strengthen muscles around the joint, avoiding excessive stress over a particular joint, healthy diet, control of metabolic/ endocrinal conditions that could contribute towards joint degeneration, healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables etc. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn What about your diet? Diet has a big affect on people with joint pain. I had the same problem you had........doctors tested and came up with normal blood tests. I did try a new juice called MonaVie that is made of 19 different fruits and has ingredients that help with joints. E-mail me if you would like to try it!
1390580 tn?1279916889 Some people get relief from Sjogrens by following a gluten free diet. You'll need to follow the diet meticulously to see if it helps you. I would stick to the diet for about three months and see how you feel. Some people get relief from fibromyalgia with this diet also. Many nutrients are not absorbed if you have food intolerances and this can produce many problems in the body. If you'd like to try it, make sure you medications are gluten free and your vitamins (Nature Made is gluten free).
Avatar n tn What causes joint pain and body aches and tendon aches and bottom of feet severely aching
Avatar n tn Osteoarthritis involves growth of bone spurs and degeneration of cartilage at a joint. It is very common in adults older than 45 and can cause joint pain. Joint pain may also be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the bursae). The bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone. For nonarthritis joint pain, both rest and exercise are important.
Avatar m tn The complexity of the design of the knee joint and the fact that it is an active weight-bearing joint are factors in making the knee one of the most commonly injured joints. It's not necessarily arthritis; you're 23, you're young. I'm sure you do activities such as sports. This can result in a pulled muscle.
1218579 tn?1267642416 Findings on MRI, diffuse lumbar disc desiccation, minimal endplate changes L3-4, mild facet and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, small bilateral facet joint effusions, degenerative changes including mild disc bulges at L4-5 and L5-S1 with multilevel foraminal narrowing due to endplate hypertrophic spurring. What does this mean and is this something I at 34 should be concerned about?
Avatar m tn I'm not all too familiar with arthritis, but if I were in your shoes, especially with a family history of arthritis, I would focus on the right diet and supplements to help joint health. Vitamin D is really key, too, for bone and joint health. Most are deficient and doctors here in Canada are recommending everyone take 1000 IU supplement a day. Best of luck and these days, I think a lot of doctors aren't generally into preventative medicine.
Avatar m tn This would indicate a combined effect of immune suppression and rebuilding of the joint. The dose is 1,000 mg. three times a day just before a meal. A diet high in animal protein has been associated with arthritis. This may be caused by two factors Red meats are rich in highly absorbable iron and iron increases inflammation and free radicals Also, high-protein diets induce acidosis, which worsens bone loss and joint damage. Eat no more than six ounces of chicken, turkey, or pork twice a day.
Avatar m tn This ball-socket joint is one of the largest and most important joint of the body. The causes of chronic hip pain is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis are most common reason for the pain. Or damage of lower body in an accident leading disability. The surgery is recommended by a surgeon and consultant on the basis of the pain and not by the age, but most of patients are between 50- 80 years.
