Osteoarthritis foot bone spurs

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis foot bone spurs


Avatar n tn My visit with the surgeon was disappointing to say the least, he said no herniations only bone spurs? Is it possible a bone spur be accidently diagnosed as herniated discs? With all due respect to the man I feel he if way off base. Please advise your thoughts.
Avatar m tn The band works together with several of the thigh muscles to provide stability to the outside of the knee joint. Bone spurs are little bones that grow out of the normal bone, this why they are called bone spurs. These then press on nerves and cause aggravation and pain. This is typical of osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn 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. Consult an orthopaedician for detailed assessment. Take care.
Avatar f tn I am going to see my Neurologist and Orthopaedic Physicians this week and this is a question I am going to ask both of them. I also suffer from Lumbar Buldging disks, bone spurs, and osteoarthritis of the lower back, hip and knees. The Epidural Lumber Steroid Injections have greatly reduced back and hip pain. My feet still burn almost all the time. It is painful and so far no one has been able to answer the question as to why. All I hear from physicians is "This makes no sense".
1467506 tn?1286416617 48 year old female with Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis: I had surgery on my foot 2 months ago to remove a bone spur on the top of my foot. I also had a toe (second toe, next to great toe) that was affected by separate pain and had completely turned crooked. The top of my foot - where the spur was removed is still very sore and painful if I wear shoes that tie or walk for any distance. The entire foot feels cramped as well.
1678656 tn?1369237418 ) Is gout something that is recurring? I also searched bone spurs and osteoarthritis. A friend of mine, also with MS, has some form of arthritis, but I cannot remember what type. It seems that she said it was osteo--but my memory fails me. Currently, I'm relying on my mother in law to get me to my appointments so I have been trying to figure it out so I know what to mention to my dr. by the time I'm able to get to see her. Just so many things out there that it could be anything.
1207048 tn?1282177904 If this is the case, it could conceivably continue right up the joint tree to your hip and back. (Remember the song about this bone being connected to that bone?) Diagnosing and treating the foot problem would be key to helping in this case of course, unless ...... you're posture and joint alignment is out of whack from something like carrying a child on one hip frequently. Look at how much pressure that stance puts on one knee over the other.
Avatar m tn Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the foot pain in your case. This may be related to the fracture, plantar fasciitis, spurs or other degenerative conditions. It is possible to continue to have a stress fracture over months when it is not given due attention and appropriate care.
783212 tn?1295031606 I also have a lump that comes and goes on top of my left wrist. Alot of my other bones ( spine, neck and hip) have bone spurs and osteoarthritis yet my doctor says there is nosign of imflammation in my blood tests. I have pain that goes from my middle finger up to my wrist when using my hand. Sometimes my hands turn really red and seem to swell some. I guess I am wondering what i can do to assist my doctor in sending me in the right direction. Rhuematologist?
Avatar n tn Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes stiffness and pain in the joints. 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.
Avatar n tn In osteoarthritis, basically bone is rubbing on bone so deterioration will continue even though the cortisone temporarily makes it feel better. The doctor may recommend trying something like Synvisc, which is a material injected into the knee to provide temporary cushioning, like a temporary replacement for cartilage. My father in law had this done and it did provide relief for a while, but again this may only put off surgery for an additional couple years.
Avatar f tn Four years ago I was dx with osteoarthritis of both knees. Dr. said that I was walking "bone on bone" and that eventually I'd probably need tkr in both knees. He advised using glucosamine chondroitin which I've done and for awhile it seemed to help. I was able to increase my exercise a bit and was walking more with less pain and swelling. In the past few months pain and swelling has increased which I attributed to less exercise and some weight gain, about 4 or 5 pounds.
11446628 tn?1418302080 This will be due to nerve impingement and it is highly likely that you may have some disc problem and will also have osteophytes (bone spurs) as well as the degeneration. I suggest that if you have not had any imaging tests done for a while, you see your doctor to arrange this and ask for referral to a specialist to see what can be done. I do not know what services the Mayo clinic provides and what they have to offer you.
Avatar f tn possible osteoarthritis.. I had bone spurs diagnosed prior to treatment in both feet but that is not kicking in.... I am a mess body ache wise moreso than during the 12 months....my fingers go numb and my left big toe hurts along with the top of that left. foot... waiting for the Dr. to call re x-ray results. Rt hand seems to be carpul tunnel....waiting til we resolve the problem with the left one.... still extremely forgetful.. I try hard to stop and think... Ha !Man, I am a mess.
Avatar m tn With the sharp pains you are experiencing in your feet, it could be likely that you have bone spurs now caused by the deposits of the crystals. The doctor should send you for xrays. I suggest that you look at your lifestyle to see what you can change to make things better for you, for example cut out any rich purine foods and drinks. Drink plenty of water. I would also suggest that you go back to your doctor or a different one in the practice and explain how you are.
Avatar f tn I had surgery - hemi-implant plus bunion,bone spurs removed and a section of bone on the long bone to big toe removed so hemi-implant wouldn't be prone to "catching" when moving. Never hurt much in recovery stages - the arthritis,stiffness in my toe hurt so much worse before so I guess the little pain here and there during recovery wasn't a big deal.
Avatar n tn DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a doctor. Just a 38 year old patient with osteoarthritis, bone spurs, thinning/bulging/herniated cervical discs, bone loss in the front of the cervical vertebrae, back in constant spasm and narrowing of the cervical foramen. I have had this condition for 6-8 years. Personal history: About 8 years ago, at the age of 28-30, I found out that my upper spine was fusing.
Avatar n tn The causes could be anything from tendonitis, bone spurs on to arthritis (and you are not too young, unfortunately.) It would take a doctor to identify the cause. Running could be aggravating what ever you have going on there so maybe stopping would be a good idea until you see a doc and have that investigated. Please write back with more info and call to make a doc appt if you have not already done so.
Avatar f tn I have been told my legs have hyper reflexes but I also have osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my hips so I do not want to jump the gun and increase my Baclofen. I only take 5 mg of Baclofen at night for my arm spasticity and it seems to do the trick for now, even though my neuro is ok for me to up it incrementally to 20 mg if needed. I have not noticed an issue with my legs before this despite my arms and the reflex issues with my legs.
Avatar m tn I’m in my mid-forties, and have a lot of medical problems that keep me in constant pain. Some of the things I’ve been diagnosed with include osteoarthritis, bone spurs, fibromyalgia, sciatica, lots of torn cartilage in my knees, lower back pain, COPD, anxiety attacks, depression, PTSD, and, well, you get the picture. My primary doctor and my neurologist have me on a lot of medications.
Avatar m tn This can happen as a result of injury, inflammation and spinal problems when the nerves are being aggravated by for example a slipped disc, bone spurs pressing on nerves, from uncontrolled high sugar levels and sometimes due to lack of some vitamins and minerals. The vitamin that sometimes is lacking in the body that can present with neurological nerve pain is the Vitamin B group. Did the doctor have your blood test checked for Vitamin B12 deficiency?
975514 tn?1325001538 The issues that make me think this may have some validity are my recurring tendon involvement, bone spurs appearing, not only on my spine, but also on my shoulder and also my nerve damage in my lower spine. I suppose that could just be a part of DDD and natural osteoarthritis of the spine too, but geeezzz...this is painful and frustrating- especially being so young and falling apart.
Avatar n tn I read that H pylori lowers stomach acid, which leads to increased calcum levels in the blood and degenarative diseases ( calcification and bone spurs). H. Pylori infections can also lead to iron-deficiency anemia. Is that true? Source: http://www.acu-cell.com/dis-hpy.html I have H pylori for years. I am 35 years old woman. I tried antibiotics to treat H pylori but that did not help and caused yeast infections. I have chronic yeast infections for the last 5 years.
Avatar f tn Hello All, So, I finally have an MRI scheduled for June 10th 2011, which was only ordered because I had 3 separate incidences of unilateral pupil dilation ranging from 10 minutes to an hour each time - no pain, no weakness, no paralysis - in fact no other symptoms other than my everyday symptoms & these were not worsened during the events (see list below).
Avatar n tn I drink coffee approximately 4X/week, I do not smoke (quit in October 2008), I am required to spend approximately 2-3 hours/day on the computer or at a desk, I rarely drink alcohol or soda but my water intake could be better (1 drink approximately 40 fluid ounces/day of water + other beverages), I have early onset osteoarthritis due to bone spurs in the upper column of my spine.
Avatar n tn I had a tumor removed from my spinal cord several years ago. It did a lot of nerve damage before it was found and removed. plus had bone spurs in my neck and ruptured disc in my lower back all so have a club foot from the damage . I have lived in pain for about 19 years and now getting older harder to deal with. Would pain management help?
192055 tn?1263559137 where your collarbone and breast bone meet. Ever since then, my SC joint would dislocate constantly throughout the day (pretty much with any arm movement... 15-20 times a day?) The doctor I saw at the time said it would heal in a year... that it was common in young girls since bones aren't fully matured at that age. My doctor said he didn't recommend surgery since I was so young. When I was 16 or so, I went back to the doctor since it didn't heal.
Avatar n tn I also have "bone-on-bone" on the medial miniscus. My Dr. says Synvisc is not as effective in a "bone-on-bone" situation. What were you told about the expected outcome? Why did you do it?
Avatar f tn just a block of bone. Severe osteoarthritis. Right hip better but showing some signs of early arthritis....feels fantastic compared to the left side. Will need a hip replacement and the docs were surprised I was able to function and walk based on what the rays looked like. I am a "coper" and have high pain tolerance so the decision at the time was wait as long as able until it completely overtakes my life. Well almost three years later...not surprising it is not getting better.
Avatar n tn I will then be turned over for a series of micro incisions along my spine for microc surgery to clean bone spurs and partial discectomy. Has any body had this experience so that I might have something to reflect upon. I feel very comfortable with both of the surgeons required to do this procedure. Mrs. H.
