Osteoarthritis foot pain

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis foot pain


Avatar m tn 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. Lying down, getting up, standing, walking, twisting, reaching, any movement may cause the grabbing pain unexpectedly. It seems to radiate from the spine across the top of the hip and down the right leg.
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.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis when I was 16 years old in L5 and S1. There are many things you can try.. they do try to do blocks but it hurts more than it helps as L5 is a hard nerve to get to.. I have pain that goes all the way down the outside of my left thigh and then to the inside of my left calf and makes my foot just ache...
1378884 tn?1315509445 Never had problems with hip, (pain is radiating to my foot) or back until I fell. Is the Doc trying to rule out RA or Osteo for my R hip? I understand that prednisone is a inflammation reducer and autoimmune suppressor. He found a deposit on the bone near hip as well. MRI tomorrow too. So if my hip feels better, pain goes away in foot then it may be that I have RA and Osteo which is exacerbated by the mechanical injury or visa versa. What do ya think, anyone?
Avatar m tn I understand your concern regarding your symptoms. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and it causes pain, swelling, and reduced motion in the joints. if there is no pain associated with the joint cracks or pops, this may be caused by the soft tissue in a joint. Knee popping may also occur if the patella is slightly out of alignment, and rubs on the adjacent tissues. Other causes of joint noise is the snapping of tendons or scar tissue over a prominence, or cavitation.
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...
7486852 tn?1410355784 When I was around 18 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee, but now I'm almost 25 and I am having a lot more bone pain but the most extreme is my knees but now I have the same pain, popping, cracking in my hips, ankles, wrists, lower ribcages with a bump on the right, shoulder blades, neck, spine, and my tailbone hurts pretty bad as well, oh and the bone in the side of my foot.. i haven't been back to a specialists since the diagnosis and I have no insurance.
Avatar f tn And when I sit down and get back up, I can't walk on the foot because of the pain! I do not have the typical morning pain associated with PF. Did I mention that I work in a garden center and am usually on my feet for 8-9 hours at a time! I do not know what to do anymore! If I could talk to a doctor who could spend more than the 5 minutes with me and really look at the whole thing, it would be great. They are so busy running off to the next patient!
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 f tn I have tons of interests and things I would love to do but this chronic foot/knee/leg pain puts a major damper on my outlook on life. To look at me one would never guess my age or think there was one thing 'wrong' with me. But I'm in terrible pain all the time and it's at the point now where I can't hide it any longer from others because I hobble around like Dustin Hoffman did in "Midnight Cowboy". It's quite frankly embarrassing to me to look that way and hobble around like I do.
Avatar m tn a pediatrician, who was quite active till 6 months ago though occasional pain was felt in knees ( more on right side).after this i started feeling increasingly severe pain in right knee which forced me to stop my morning walk. on consulting orthopedic surgeon, a medial meniscus tear was detected in mri for which arthroscopic menisectomy was done in mid november,2009. but to my dismay, instead of expected improvement my condition has become much worse.
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.
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 !
1176578 tn?1263756689 I see my family doc (first check up in 4 years in a couple of weeks) and I'd like to know the right tests to ask for. I am in constant pain despite the pain medication. I have a great job and family, my husband is a tennis teaching pro and my kids and he are fit and slim. I feel I am missing out on so much because my pain and extreme fatigue keeps me sidelined.
Avatar f tn 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 have done everything possible, over the counter drugs, exercising in pool, massage therapy, physical therapy, accupuncture, pain shots, perscription Motrin 800mg, Vicodin 7.5-750, Hydrocodone/APAP 5/500, with very little relief. I received the second series of Supartz almost 1 1/2 mos.
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 f tn Where most people get bunions my foot gets painful and red and from the back of my great toe straight back on top of my foor I get a throbbing pain and sometimes I can't even stand the sheet to touch my foot. Now the other one is starting off and on to hurt. 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.
Avatar f tn I have been to my Primary Care Physician, Neurologist, Orthopeadic Surgeon and Anthesiologist (Pain Management Specialist). My foot pain persists. 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.
Avatar f tn Both caregiver222 and jemma116 have provided accurate information. The two sciatic nerves are the largest nerves in the human body. They are formed on each side from elements of the lumbar nerve roots, and runs beneath the piriformis region in the pelvis, exiting the pelvis at the greater sciatic foramen, where it runs down the back of the thigh to an area just above the knee. Here it divides into the tibial and fibular nerves.
Avatar m tn The range of motion in the joint is *almost* normal and there is no stiffness or problems in that regard, at the moment I simply experience mild pain/discomfort with activity. I am very active (weightlifting, martial arts, spin classes, hiking, paintballing etc) and have only started to show regular symptoms in the last six months or so. As it was explained to me, what's happened to my joint is that the tibia has healed at an angle which is putting pressure on the front of the ankle.
Avatar n tn The L5 dermatome (sensory area supplied by the L5 root) is over the lateral aspect of the leg and most of the top surface of the foot. The sole of the foot is supplied by S1. There is some overlap though. The pain you describe does not sound like nerve root pain, but more suggestive of a local source of pain in the foot.
Avatar n tn Like I said before, a prior emg/ncv was normal, and i remain confused as to whether my lumbar pain (burning/pain) is causing the foot problem or vice-versa. as for the last resort of surgery, he said something about suring up the tibial tendon, lengthening the achilles, and building up something in the foot, with a 2 1/2 month no weight bearing recovery. he said he has done a bunch of them.
Avatar f tn Looking forward to hearing from you often and hopefully you will have something that will help with your pain, not just your foot pain but all the pain your experiencing over your body. Best wishes........
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 n tn I am 34 years old and I have been having severe coccyx and foot pain for the past year. I have been to an orthopedist and a rheumotologist and have taken x-rays, blood tests, and MRI's trying to figure out what is going on. I had a positive ANA test, but other tests proved it to be nothing, and the only thing that the X-Rays and MRI's have shown is mild osteoarthritis in my lumbar back, right hip and feet. Nothing to explain the severity of pain in my tailbone and feet.
