Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis diet mayo clinic


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 f tn My doctor from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN recommended it and it has helped, especially starting my day. Good luck.
Avatar n tn It took the doctors where I live a year before they finally did a bioposy and found out it was cryptogenic liver desiese Which they now tell me took years to develope into cirrhosis. So I did my research and decided to go to Mayo Clinic for my first eveluation. It was grueling. An entire week of getting up at 4:30 am to be at different clinics by 5:00 am .
Avatar n tn Oh My Gosh...You might be my medical twin -except I'm 44! I could have written your post myself (except for the falling asleep in the car part) and until now, hadn't found anyone with issues like me. I have all those symptoms...major laxity of joints that is progressive. It started about three years ago after fertility treatment, after a jump into water from a cliff in Hawaii and after exposure to chemicals while we were having our house renovated.
Avatar f tn I have seen a Rheumatologist at the Mayo Clinic down here in Florida, and he seemed to be of the opinion that I absolutely could not possibly have arthritis at my age. I don't believe that to be true, but that doesn't necessarily mean that I have it... Just that my age doesn't determine whether I could or not. I will be seeking a second opinion. As for the diabetic neuropathy, I have done numerous tests for diabetes and for neuropathy separately.
1840891 tn?1431551393 As always, it depends on how extensive your cirrhosis is and any bleeding and coagulation issues you have. Varices, low platelet count, INR (which measures vitamin k and other clotting factors). Remember the topical drug still has the warnings that apply to the oral form even though absorption in the blood supply is less. General warning for person with cirrhosis who take NSAIDs from the Mayo Clinic web site.
Avatar f tn Deep, aching pain in a muscle Pain that persists or worsens A tender knot in a muscle Difficulty sleeping due to pain (all of the above from Mayo Clinic) Elsewhere: Many of those already suffering from the pain of fibromyalgia also suffer from myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is another form of chronic pain that can affect the entire body, particularly the face and jaw.

Avatar f tn Having a sore throat and feeling tired can be symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
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 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.
551343 tn?1506834118 I was diagnosed with erythromelalgia in the late 80s. I went to Mayo Clinic when my doctors suspected it but weren't sure. I had already been dx with raynauds earlier when the symptoms of EM started. I was really desperate. I didn't wear shoes for years and was in bad shape. I slept with my feet hanging off the bed in a bucket of ice water or would lie on the floor by the sliding glass door with my feet in the snow in winter.
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 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.
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.
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 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 6 yrs later im in no better position. However, im on a waiting list to get into the famous Mayo Clinic. Finally someone has taken an interest in my case. Doctors r stumped. Most want to say i have internal shingles.or post shingles nerve pain. I've never had a rash or blisters or anything other than the burning skin and very sunburn like sensitivity and stabbing nerve pain in the muscles around my waist. Im praying for all of you. Good luck and will post again after Mayo.
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 ALT levels are not indicators, Total Protein and Albumin markers, which are part of most Liver panels done by the good Labs.......eg Quest, Mayo Clinic, are important indicators for damage. As long as they both stay in the HIGH range, scarring will be minimal. Of course the biopsy is the king, but monotoring the two mentioned above can give you some peace of mind between invasive tests. Total Protein...........ref. range 6.0 - 8.3 Albumin.................ref. range 3.2 - 4.
Avatar n tn 3 years ago I lost a dramatic amount of weight, 75-80 lbs in 7 mths on the Atkins Diet. With that diet not focusing much on fat, we had thought that I destroyed my gall bladder in turn. Plumenting from being over 185 lbs to around 110 was a big thing and though I was happy to shed the pounds, I don't know what this has cost me in the long run. Since this problem began again a few months ago, I have lost a few more lbs because it is hard for me to eat at times as I get that pain very bad.
147426 tn?1317269232 He helped all he could and kept my pain medicine perscribed for me. I called Mayo Clinic and they set me up an appointment and told me not to worry about no insurance that they would work out a payment plan. When we got there it was just the opposite. We had to borrow about $12,000.00 or more to pay for the test. We also had to pick and choose which test where most important because we could'nt afford all of them. To make it short we left there with no diagnosis and no money.
522415 tn?1242941355 3 I asked him if he read my chart i go to pain clinic in my town for inj. And lastly he beleaves fibro can be treated by diet and exersise ( I of course got smart and said if i wasnt in so much pain i might exersise urghh). I know with all the obstacles we fibro. people suffer or daily pain, the dilema to many pills or not enough or even wich one. incompatant DRs (good exp. in just a min.). Also the stero-type that we are just complainers. We have to stick strong to our belifes and values!!
Avatar f tn I have had osteoarthritis in by back for years, and my gut feelingis that this related. But it's just a guess. I can totally sympathize with everyone else who's had these symptoms! It's very unnerving.
4226456 tn?1354123528 PMR responds to steroids (Prednisone) in as quickly as 24 hours as a diagnostic tool and then long term use. The Mayo Clinic is just one source of info, you may want to take a look: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/polymyalgia-rheumatica/DS00441 I have a slightly elevated ana, but arthritis was ruled out and the Prednisone worked like a miracle; however, I won't continue to take it due to its horrible possible side effects.
