Osteoarthritis genetic

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis genetic


1875722 tn?1320440866 Little things that used to be so easy to do before I got my genetic case of osteoarthritis/osteoporosis are a huge event. I must always pace myself and try to remind myself that I can't move as fast as I used to. Getting up in the morning can be an ordeal. This morning I could not get out of bed. My wonderful husband had to put ICY-HOT strips on my right rotator cuff, right elbow, and lower spine.

Avatar m tn osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition. It is caused by the breakdown of cartilage and is often associated with aging. It can be assisted along the way by injuries. There is no cure for osteoarthritis. Treatments include NSAIDs and pain management, maintaining a normal weight and exercise.
Avatar n tn I have recently, over the last 6 months, been experiencing sever pain in my elbows and shoulders in what appears to be the tendon area. I am currently on pain management for a genetic condition with my knees and am on 10mgx4 a day of Oxycodone and 15mgx2 times a day of morphine time release. Is there any way this could be causing the pain? I had minor pain before getting n pain management, but now it's almost unbearable even with the pain meds.
788259 tn?1301591771 Secondly you have to seek for osteoarthritis diagnosis by an X-ray and it is worthwhile to suggest to you that osteoarthritis is linked with Genetic history. You need to follow up with a Rheumatologist. Rheumatic fever diagnosis: The revised Jones criteria, (excerpts from wikipidea) the diagnosis of rheumatic fever can be made when two of the major criteria, or one major criterion plus two minor criteria, are present along with evidence of streptococcal infection.
Avatar f tn I am 25 years old and am being treated for osteoarthritis (fingers, knees, elbows and toes) and mild fibromyalgia. A friend of mine told me about the hypermobility type of EDS. I do have loose ankles that like to give out on me, flat feet, easy bruising, scoliosis, irritable bowel syndrome and hyper mobility in my toes, elbows, fingers and thumbs (they extend farther than they should). However, my skin is not elastic or velvet like. Could this be EDS even without the skin abnormalities?
Avatar m tn I'm 50 and my dr diagnosed me with shoulder arthritis. He said it's osteoarthritis with cartilege gone.It's only been 3 months since my diagnosis and already I'm having sharp pain in my shoulder and pain down my arm. Is this normal? Yesterday I shoveled snow with full strength and ROM but today I have sharp pain in my shoulder off and on. Has anyone else had this kind of problem?
886824 tn?1253740254 EDS is a group of genetic conditions that weaken connective tissues. Connective tissues are comprised of proteins that support bones, skin, blood vessels and other organs, like the heart. As such, EDS usually affects the skin, joints and blood vessel walls. Symptoms can range from mild to severe depending on the type of EDS.
Avatar f tn I do not know the answer to your first question other than to say no, you should not take them at the exact same time. Whether you should stop taking the thyroid supplement entirely is a question you should ask a doctor. If you're thinking of STARTING a supplement, ask the doctor. As far as a relationship between fibromyalgia and Hashimoto's, about all I can find is this; "People with rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases are particularly likely to develop fibromyalgia.
Avatar f tn I have lots of things wrong but I have recently found out about three other women my age in my area that have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. I am 33 and live in North Georgia almost on the Tennessse Line. Lyme is in TN but not GA. Whatever. My question is can Lyme disease cause or mimick Osteoarthritis. NOne of the women that have been diagnosed with this including myself have ever worked in a laborous job.
Avatar f tn No it is not genetic, not osteoarthritis. what kind of surgery are you talking about, that will help? vitamin d levels are fine-others not sure. Pain is not worse when i lie down, and there really is no back pain-large muscles with little back pain.
521161 tn?1212369304 These include Osteoporosis (numerous fractures with little to no trauma) osteoarthritis of most joints, hearing loss ect ect. I have recently been tested for genetic disorders related to connective tissue but am awaiting results. In 2001 I also had Diffuse Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis in my left knee. I underwent an open front & back total synovectomy followed by 28 external beam radiation treatments. I luckily have been PVNS free since.
423925 tn?1203464160 There's no swelling or anything. It is apparently genetic because my mother and her father both have it. I don't know if it's some sort of arthritis or what, but no doctor has ever been able to tell us what it is. I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas?
Avatar n tn Pain worse when sitting or lying down and feels better with movement is usually caused by ankylosing spondylitis. This is a genetic condition. Medicines, physiotherapy, exercises and drugs to suppress immunity are the mainstay of treatment. A back pain or a referred pain due to a nerve pinched that is worse on lying down or felt mainly on lying down can also be due to a tumor within the spinal cord. A neurological examination can pinpoint the site. A CT scan or a MRI will be surely required.
Avatar n tn Hello I'm a 29 year old male. My father, his sister, his mother and her aunt all had Rheumatoid Arthritis. My father's was Juvenile Onset and he passed in 05 due to complications. In 2006 my right knee started hurting. I finally went to see an Orthopedic doctor. After an x-ray and feeling the top of my knee he said "You have Osteoarthritis in your knee. It is definately not RA." Well just a couple of months ago my other knee started with the same problems. Just pain mostly.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and I also have osteoarthritis. I have had low back pain for quite a awhile now. I have had carpel tunnel in both hands and cubicle tunnel in both elbows for which I had surgery to repair them. I also had a torn menicus in my knee which was also surgically repaired. Right now I am having pain across my lower back with an area about 2 inches to the left of my spine that is particularly more painful.
Avatar n tn My neurologist has indicated further surgery is not an option and stated that research has been done and a genetic marker found for degenerative disc disease. Allele COL9A2. It has something to do with erradic bone growth (spurs etc). Have you heard of this, and is there research being done in the US? Also, he stated myelomalacia does not progress on its own, yet I find increasing weakness, with everything I do.
Avatar f tn Hip dysplasia is a disease that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. It is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors.In a hip suffering from dysplasia, two things are commonly abnormal. First, the caput is not deeply and tightly held by the acetabulum. Instead of being a snug fit, it is a loose fit, or a partial fit.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry to hear about your pain, especially given your age. Unfortunately RA has no age limits. Yes you do have a higher genetic risk for RA when close family members have also had the disease. RA and Osteoarthritis is rampant in the females of my family - to a lesser degree the males also. Have the appropriate labs been done to determine if you have Arthritis - a Sed Rate and ANA? If not I hope you'll ask your parents help in getting these important labs ran.
Avatar f tn My suspicions: Chronic Insufficient thyroid regulation-perhaps relying too much on Labs (flawed tests) and possible interference with Adrenal stress (due to ongoing biological and external stress) which must be corrected first, before thyroid function can be restored (secondary hypothyroidism in addition to hashi's possibly) Low vitamin D3 or vitamin D3 resistance - low K2 and other deficiencies In relation to this: Is your hyperparathyroidism primary or secondary and is it being treated succ
Avatar m tn Your description of sand feeling in your joints is a symptom of osteoarthritis. Perhaps you're not old enough for the tests to show yet and it's the beginning of arthritis? I would try surfing for information on "benign crepitus" which is what they call what you have without a diagnosis. I understand working on one's health to reduce inflammation has helped some people. As well, there are anti-arthritis diets which follow the same principles of reducing joint inflammation.
5856747 tn?1403352282 • Rheumatoid arthritis is the second commonest form of arthritis to afflict human kind, the commonest being osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid typically affects the small joints of your hands and feet, while osteo tends to affect the larger joints like your hips or knees. • Rheumatoid is four times commoner in women than it is in men. • At any time rheumatoid arthritis will affect 1 – 3% of the population. • It can strike at any age but its peak incidence is between the ages of 30 and 50 years.
Avatar n tn If the lesions were actually in the vertebrae themselves, then that refers to the bony part of the spinal column. There are also genetic and acquired abnormalities of the vertebrae that occurs with various diseases. Sometimes these things cause problems and sometimes they do not depending on the circumstance. If it were osteoarthritis there is often an inflammatory component. So I would not think that this would be MS lesions. It is not unusual to do an MRI for things other than MS.
620923 tn?1452919248 It's something you are born with, it's not something you all of a sudden get. There is the genetic component there. It explains why I was the clumsy kid, who was always spraining her ankle, dislocating her knees, breaking blood vessels, getting real bad nearsighted so fast as a kid, always having a bruise somewhere, hurting all the time. It is suggested to keep muscle as toned as possible to hold joints in place.
Avatar n tn My husband's dad had many symptoms and problems that we now know were due to him having a genetic disorder that made him store excess iron. He was Irish and it is very prevelant in Irish and other European backgrounds. But your saying your other symptoms including thyroid and the years of run around with drs makes me wonder about whether you have ever been tested for iron overload, called hemochromatosis.
Avatar f tn Spondylosis or also known as spinal osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that often results to loss of the normal structure of the spine as well as its function. Straightening of the cervical lordosis: This maybe the result of the spondylosis but its very common and can be genetic, its basically the curve of your neck is straighter than the normal curature.
Avatar f tn He also diagnosed osteoarthritis which I don't agree with because my joints don't hurt. They started me on pain pills and muscle relaxants which didn't help and then they gave me prednisone at a small dose and that helped the pain in my legs but not my arms and I kinda think prednisone caused mood swings, not sure I want to take it anymore. My arms hurt to reach for anything, dressing, putting a coat on, even trying to scratch the back of my neck or my sides.
Avatar f tn Is that why my doctor is ordering the other RF IgM test? I have osteoarthritis in all my joints (hands, knees, ankles and spine). Does RA cause osteoarthritis to appear everywhere? (I do NOT have red warm swollen joints, but both my ankles are very puffy.) And I have bony spurs on both kneecaps and fingers and outer ankles. I am disabled in both knees and my legs hurt when I stand and walk. I get rashes every day on my chest that fade in an hour. And I feel very tired all the time.
Avatar f tn After a lot of research these past two months I have found out that severe endometriosis can cause all of these problems if left undetected over time. I have gone through many genetic tests and tests for every other possible condition my doctors thought was causing all of this. They have found nothing in 3 years till this. The best I have felt in the last 3 years was for first month after I had the endo in me removed.
872566 tn?1283004416 This disease can be an inherited genetic condition, while for others the mitochondria can be affected by other enviromental factors. This disease affects the parts of the body that need the most energy to function correctly, such as the heart, brain, muscles and lungs. The affected individual may have strokes, seizures, intestinal problems, blindness, deafness, muscle failure, heat/cold intolerance, immune system problems, etc. When a person gets ill with a cold, flu, etc.
