Osteoarthritis foot

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis foot


Avatar f tn After several weeks of discomfort in the sole of my foot after surgery, and not finding an answer from my primary doctor, All my primary suggested was inflamation in my foot. It wasnt enough for me so I went to a specialist I already have problems with my doot so I thought it best to go to a specialist. He took x rays and determined it was Osteoarthritist. The big concern at first was blood clots since it was right after surgery. I still am concerned about this. Can you still get them?

1378884 tn?1315509445 In a nutshell, osteoarthritis is wear-and-tear on the joint. It can happen at any age, not just to "old people". It can be brought on by an injury, a congenital deformity, overuse in a sport or job. RA is a malfunction of the immune system in which it mistakes joint tissue, mainly the cartilage, as something that must be attacked and eliminated. This causes the typical swelling, redness, heat, and over time, damage that causes pain and disability.
Avatar m tn Lately I've noticed that when I plant my left foot and pivot on it to turn my body to the right, my left knee makes a popping sound. For a few days I could feel something move in the same knee when I would walk down stairs. It felt like it was located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. That went away. The right knee doesn't have any issues. There is no pain, tenderness, or swelling involved at all. Does this sound like it could be osteoarthritis?
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 I also have severe osteoarthritis in both knees and just about every place else it can be on a human being and I'm only 60. I've had osteoarthritis since I was diagnosed at age 27. AS far as the Bakers Cyst goes, I saw nothing at all that looked different behind that knee but I had a great deal of pain especially when I extended my leg. Then, it went away. I have since developed Planters Fasciitis and I have a really bad problem with my right foot.
432312 tn?1265648574 I broke my foot because of the osteoporosis and that foot aches alot of the time. My neck sometimes hurts but always ( all the time) makes crunchy noises when I turn it. If my neck aches the next day it will ususally be my shoulders back and neck hurt. I have a family history for rheumatoid arthritis... (both grandmothers and my maternal uncle) and degenerative disk disease Maternal grandmother maternal, uncle and my father.
Avatar m tn I have been recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my large toe. I believe it is from repeated trauma to that joints having been climbing a local mountain and upon descending much stress is put on that lead foot. I take glucosamine and that's about it, although I do wear insoles in my running shoes that help a bit. There is swelling that doesn't diminish and pain is intermittent. I'm considering checking into surgery and wonder if anyone has any advice about this. Thanks !
Avatar m tn now, i feel quite stiff in right knee and leg in morning and it is painful to put foot on ground.though, i am walking but not without pain and limping.the joint has become quite unstable and it is painful to use stairs or walk on uneven surface. no investigation supports infection but a fresh mri shows more degenerative changes in the joint.according to some orthopedicians tkr is the only answer but i am hesitant. what my case looks like and is there any scope of improvement?
Avatar m tn Lately there has been some pain in toes and occasionally down the sole of my foot. I have also begun having pain in my hands. Started in the joint at the base of my thumbs, but now I'm noticing it in my finger joints and thumb joint. I mentioned this to my MD at my annual physical and she felt that it was probably osteoarthritis (mainly due to the fact that there was no redness around the joints). She didn't order any kind of tests to confirm this diagnosis.
1176578 tn?1263756689 I am a 48 year old female who was diagnosed with osteoarthritis (left knee) nearly 10 years ago. After multiple tries on NSAIDS which made me ill, my orthopaedic surgeon settled on pain management (narcotic) which I have been taking for the past six years. While not an ideal situation, I follow my prescription to the letter, never taking more than prescribed. Over the past year I began to experience joint stiffness in the mornings.
Avatar f tn Any Help Appreciated! I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis about 2 years ago. I received cortizone shots for several months but did not help much. I was told about Supartz shots and received the first series last September. I was pain-free for over 8 months which was great! The end of May I started having pain and contacted my doctor, I was not able to get in for 3 weeks and the pain increased and had extreme sciatic pain running from my hip to the bottom of foot on both sides.

I would appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on this for me, or would know anyone who I could discuss this with. Many thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi there! Well, it would be inappropriate to comment on the situation without knowing the relevant clinical details like the exact pathology, the exact bones involved, the extent of degeneration, associated conditions etc. On a general note, at first all attempts to treat the arthritis conservatively with medication or interventional procedures must be tried.
Avatar n tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Foot pain could be due to osteoarthritis. It could also be due to plantar fasciitis. Refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantar_fasciitis There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc.
1091845 tn?1263165600 my one leg is much worse than the other and on this side I too have pain down into my foot...the foot will burn but not the leg/legs....with the legs its more of a tightness/muscle spasm feeling and the non stop ache... (hey I too need SPELL CHECK, you are NOT alone here either!) I have discribed my leg pain as they feel like they are encased in cement...maybe more accurate is they feel like they are CEMENT...heavy,hard to bend, and SOLID...
Avatar f tn I have been suffering with debilitating foot pain for almost two years. First diagnose was Plantar Fasciitis and I was treated with injections and a walker boot and also PT. Six months later I was diagnosed with fractures in both heels and have been in two casts, crutches and another walking boot. I am still in pain! I just had an MRI that shows Marrow Edema in four bones of my foot. What does this mean? I do not see the Dr. again for two weeks!
Avatar n tn Hi Staley, Flatfoot, is a deformity of the foot in which the normal medial longitudinal arch of the foot has been lost. What type of flat foot have you been diagnosed with? Is it a rigid or flexible variety? I think it is flexible flatfoot for you (as per your description), which lacks an arch only when patient is weight bearing, not when non weight bearing or toe-standing.
Avatar m tn Hi there. Pain on top of foot without history of trauma, may be due to a stress fracture of a metatarsal bone. 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.
Avatar f tn I started training for a marathon (running 25-35 miles a week) and have started with a burning on the bottom of my right foot that lasts 2-5 seconds on and off. I had arthroscopic knee surgery 18 months ago for a right knee injury and they noted osteoarthritis. It doesnt hurt when I run now. What can it be?
Avatar n tn I am now having issues with the r foot. achilles tendoin and the joint area in the ankle. Could this be caused the lupus developing further?
Avatar f tn I recently went to my PCP to find out if I had Hypothyroid disease, and got alot more than I bargained for. I was just diagnosed (via x-ray) with osteoarthritis in my large toe (left foot). I have had two surgeries on that foot (for a bunion) back in the 1980's. The joint in my toe has been swollen and it's very painful to walk. I also got what the doctor termed as a positive result for an ANA test. All he said was that the sedimentation rate was something like 1:300 - what does that mean?
Avatar f tn Now my MRI shows marrow edema in four bones of my foot that was not there on previous MRI. My doctor is saying that some people just have fatty marrow! He has not seen the first MRI. WTH?
Avatar n tn Hello! I played in a soccer game about 4 weeks ago and have had foot pain since then. The first night after the game, I could barely walk. My foot felt better with icing and rest, but within a week or two I had swelling a little in front of my ankle bone on the medial side. The bone there also hurt to touch. The swelling went away, but 4 weeks later, I still have pain when I touch the bone in front of the ankle bone.
Avatar n tn First, I want to say that I am a podiatrist (foot doctor). Based on what you've described (your English is very good, by the way), it is difficult to give you a definitive answer. Of course, I must recommend that you see a podiatrist who can take Xrays of your feet in the office. It is essential that the doctor look at the bones in your feet. Since you have "knock knees", I am assuming that you are female. Many women have that condition, and it CAN affect the ankles and feet.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with high risk osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. I am wondering if I could have fractured the metatarsals(if thats what they are in the foot) or can it be arthritis causing this burning terrible pain. Some days I can barely walk. I can't find any shoes that don't hurt. I would appreciate any ideas here. Thanks.
Avatar f tn And there are simple things such being on your feet all day as in my case with a nylon stocking foot (panty hose) in a ill fitting shoe or a dermatitis or fungus. Nightly Epsom salt foot soaks and cooling foot lotions helped the burning of my feet. I encourage you to consult a Podiatrist or your PCP for a referral to the appropriate physician. Good luck and please keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Is there an agreed upon place (butt, back, foot, thigh?) to put the ice pack and/or heating pad to help sciatic nerve pain the most? If not, where has it helped YOU most effectively? I appreciate any and all responses!
