Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis diet mayo


11446628 tn?1418302080 I have osteoarthritis in my spine, from neck down. I also have pain in my knee and hands, and my fingers are twisting and have knots. My right knee has had pain and swelling for weeks, and this morning it's too painful to walk. I haven't injured it. Recent blood test didn't report rheumatoid arthritis. So what's going on with my knee, and with my hands?
329994 tn?1301666848 Unfortunately for me, you are the only doctor covered by my insurance so I was forced to see you again. Below is a direct quote from the Mayo Clinic regarding Fibromyalgia: Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain. Fibromyalgia occurs in about 2 percent of the population in the United States.
Avatar m tn At least you are attempting to do positive things regarding your diet and lifestyle. I commend you on that! I hope you are able to make it to the Mayo clinic. Maybe you will find answers there. It's hard to express to the drs what your body is going through and get proper treatment. I wish you luck. Stay positive!
Avatar n tn Any helpful tips?? Any diet tips? My Dr. seems to think the meds are working just fine, I don't need to be overly concerned w/diet, etc. I diagree! Just no alcohol, no smoking, no fried foods he says!!!
Avatar f tn My doctor from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN recommended it and it has helped, especially starting my day. Good luck.
168348 tn?1379360675 I still have a copy of the hand out my naturopath gave me about the Elimination Diet. It names SOME of the most common food sensitivities/allergies. It names: wheat, dairy, soy, corn, citrus, eggs, alcohol, chocolate, obvious sugar, coffee, peanuts, and potatoes. In addition to these common sensitivities and allergies I would include shellfish, more specifically crustaceans. I would also include strawberries, garlic and onions. Garlic and onions are sulphur foods.
Avatar n tn I am planning a trip to Mayo in Feb or March 2008 - whenever I can get in. I'm desperate. My body feels like it is collapsing. Docs say not EDS and I agree. They are trying me on Enbrel. After one month...no change and in fact I'm worse. All my joints catch and crunch. It's scary. Really scary, in fact. How can we get in touch with each other? Will they let me post an email address? Not sure of the rules.
Avatar f tn So far after tons of tests, procedures, bloodwork, imaging, and specialists, my only diagnosis is a derivative of Fibromyalgia called Central Sensitivity (or Sensitization) Syndrome. The Mayo Clinic Neurologist described it as a more concentrated form of Fibro. I don't show all of the signs of Fibro like the trigger points, so it was initially written off. I also don't have Peripheral Neuropathy, as there is no damage to any of my major or fine nerves.
1840891 tn?1431551393 I've had autoimmune arthritis for decades now, but in just the last year I've also developed osteoarthritis in both thumbs. It's very painful and quite debilitating. I complained to my PCP about how I couldn't take NSAID's, and she suggested I try Voltaren gel, a topically applied NSAID. She said if used as directed only very minute amounts would be absorbed into the general circulation. I googled the drug and immediately found an alarming FDA safety report at http://www.fda.
Avatar f tn I too have type 2 diabetes, and fibro, and also throw in degenerative osteoarthritis. At one time I was seeing a phusical therapist, for the fibro. I had lots of fatty lumps as you describe them. The PT said they were from myofascial spasm syndrome. He would exert hard pressure to break them up. Stripping up and down my arms, legs, ribcage, exc. Left lots of bruises. Over the years they have come back.
Avatar f tn I went to see a rheumatologist and I just found out I have Osteoarthritis which explains my excruciating pain when it flares up. Osteoarthritis fatigues you also the pain is horrible from top to bottom you feel stressed as well as depressed because you feel it will never end. But their is hope, I take diclofanac for the pain, but now I have to go back to the specialist to see how far it's advanced.
Avatar n tn He started, and still heads, a neurologicial association in a large medical center here in Houston. He went to Baylor College of Medicine, worked for several years at the Mayo, and serves on the AMA policy board. This is the 4th largest city in the country and his association sees a significant portion of the ALS cases that occur here every year. First off, he saw lots of visible twitches throughout my body. No big deal, according to him.
408795 tn?1324939275 The only reason I ask is that if I have too much salt in my diet the meds don't work as effectively. Remember to stay under 2000 mg. sodium per day. Read labels on processed food and avoid salty foods. 2. Do you have "pitting". 1. Other meds similar to Lasix are torsemide (Demadex) and butethamine (Bumex). I never tried these and everyone I know is taking the standard Spironlactone and Lasix combo as we all have both symptoms which seem to occur in tandem.
Avatar n tn Whats life like without a large intestine? Will I lose a lot of weight, will I have to change my diet around? Any details would be helpful. So far I know that I'll be going to the bathroom a lot. And for curiosity, I'm 18 -- so I'm quite young.
Avatar n tn Your body is probably trying to tell you that there is a functional unbalance and is not happy with your diet, in my case I changes my diet, my doctor did the suction cups on my back and the muscle twitching went away magically. First thing I would recommend is to detox your body, stop all toxic intake because is bad for the antibodies and cells and don't let them work which means healing your body, everyday coffee, tea, bread and sugar can be extremely detrimental on your health.
Avatar f tn What MD did you see at the Mayo Clinic? I saw one with whom I was not impressed at the Mayo Clinic in MN. I look forward to reading your thoughts.
Avatar n tn Neurontin or elavil may help with the tingling. Physical therapy or exercise such as swimming may also be of help. Balanced diet with multivitamin and rest should also be part of the regimen. GOod luck.
551343 tn?1506834118 I have never taken any medication other than vitamins even though the Neuro would like me on daily Copaxone. I have adopted a very healthy diet with no alcohol or coffee, no red meat, mostly grains, vegies and fruits. I live in temperate San Diego. I wear open toed shoes and really try to get a good arch support. I massage my arch everyday after I get up as the skin seems tight. I gave up wearing my wedding rings many years ago as my hands would swell after eating and they would get stuck on.
Avatar m tn They are about as poor as Clev Clinic and Mayo. They use the same diagnostic criteria that the CDC and ISDA says to use.So consequently they miss 90% of the actual POS results.
476246 tn?1418874514 Hi Marcia, Sounds like osteoarthritis to me. I have it in most of the joints in my body, and while it was annoying before, it is really wearing me down now. Joint pain seems to be often aggravated by Tx, at least for me. In fact, the head, neck, shoulder and spine aches are the most devastating thing about these meds, which I've now been on for 47 weeks. Don't get me wrong - the foggy headed, short tempered, itchy skinned, thin haired stuff are no picnic either.
Avatar n tn But by the time I get home from work my tongue is almost completely orange again. I've also had a sore throat since I noticed it. My diet has not changed nor has any medication that I take. Not sure if I need to go to the doctor or a dentist.
475586 tn?1225027354 I have Lupus for the past 2 years and I friend who had it for 15 years and now is in perfect condition told me to read about the CANDIDA DIET, she started the diet 3 weeks ago and today is pain free and is not longer taking her medications (prednizona, plaquenil etc); I have started the diet 5 days ago and my life have changed, the inflamation is gone and the pain is almost gone.
Avatar n tn She didn't know what it could be and said she couldn't order any tests for something without any definite symptoms. Since I've made so many dramatic changes for the better in my diet and discovered so many food allergies and lost a lot of weight, I haven't had the strange burning sensation on my thighs, and I don't get nearly the dramatic neuropathy that I used to get.
Avatar n tn been on a low-fat and bland diet for over one month (no ground beef, nothing fried, no oil, no mayo, no cream sauces, no butter, etc.). I still have symptoms daily and am always uncomfortable with belching, whether I have had a bland meal or even a glass of water. Symptoms last for hours on end. The newest symptom is diarrhea after meals, sometimes, when I have not even yet finished eating. I am really hoping that surgery is the answer and that we will not have to search for another cause.
Avatar n tn Also bought a Cal-Mag-Zinc for later to take before sleep and will be munching on spinach later and making some guacamole to restore glutathione. I always change my diet, but I havent had much bread as I think I have an allergy to wheat. Forgot to keep taking B vitamins for missing vitamins. Good luck! There is always a cure! Just keep researching and trying different things. Stay hopeful.
Avatar n tn take print out some of your research (the mayo clinic has recently done some great clincial trials involving BOTOX as the the treatment) to your doctors and educate them! They need to recognize this as a valid medical condition. http://www.mayoclinic.org/hyperhidrosis/treatment.html There is also a surgery, called ETS (side affects are major though) and read my latest post about DITROPAN. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn my gall bladder was packed full of stones, and was legitimately removed, and I have been fine with a regular diet ever since. (I was also diagnosed with that while I was pregnant, and had to wait until after I had the baby and recovered before I could have surgery. I ate absolutely NO FAT for the next 2 1/2 months and did not have a single attack (had 3 attacks before they figured out it wasn't labor or trapped gas) until I had a BIG ONE right before my scheduled surgery.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with hep c 1a and hoping I could use a herbal remedy cause I don't have any insurance except Medicare. I also have osteoarthritis and sever injury to the leg and ankle making it hard for me to do any exercise. Can't walk losing length in leg. Not supposed to pick up anything over a LB. I'm totally lost to what is going on. I just know I'm sick, tired and in alot of pain. They give me narcotic pain meds I also have herniated disc in back. My eyes bother me to is this normal?
