Osteoarthritis hip age

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip age


1175033 tn?1492204828 I went to Shriners hospital when I was 13ish, and one of the doctors there told me that I could need hip replacements by the age of 35. I didnt want to believe him, but now I starting to realize why he said that. I also have noticed reoccurring pains in alot of my joints along with stiffness and muscle spasms. I also have weird bone growths, on my ankle, heel, toe joints, finger joints, Im too young for all this. My sed rate always comes back normal.
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 n tn After having a surgery to fix on particular problem that left me with a whole different problem I went to three other osteo docs. They all advised me to have hip replacement due to osteoarthritis, but I didn't want to do that without trying every other avenue. I recently had a 'live blood analysis' and discovered a tiny organism called 'mycoplasma arthritides' was responsible for my problem. I was told that a trauma like my surgery couild have triggered the organism.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I have it at a relatively young age, and was prescribed celebrex, which I hate the headaches from and stomach pain (and its not all that effective) which irritates my stomach ulcer. All my doc said was to up the protonix. Im in PT to help as well but if anyone would like to share a short summary of their story from pre-diag symptoms through successful treatment, I would really like to see how the different docs have handled your speciific case.
Avatar m tn I'm so sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems with your knees. I understand what you're going thru suffering with this pain at such a young age! My Doctor's believe that my osteo-arthritis began when I was a teenager. By the age of 28, my Doctor's were prescribing a THR(Total Hip Replacement). Whether or not your pain turns out to be Arthritis, you definitely need to get a diagnosis ASAP so your pain can be controlled immediately!
Avatar n tn Everyone develops arthritis as they age. Being overweight definitely puts more stress on your hip joints, but there are strengthening exercises that can be done. A chiropractor might be able to help as well. Sometimes hip pain can be a symptom of lower back problems. Hope you get your answers.
Avatar n tn I am a 44 year old female PE teacher and she felt this had shown up at a young age. I have played many sports and had minor injuries. I will have to wait for the x-ray resullts because I am in a remote area and they read tests once evry 2 weeks or so. In the meantime I am wondering if these symptoms are indicative of this and what you would suggest I do to releive pain and if there is any over the counter medication that would help?
1131208 tn?1260211546 I think when they see someone my age come in with hip pain they automatically think that they can just give an injection and it will all be better. lol My AVN was mild 2 years ago on MRI, but I know that it can progress quickly. I will demand something happen when I go in on Wednesday because this is just ridiculous. Thanks for your input and keep me posted on your surgery.
Avatar m tn I was just about your age. I was 27 when I was diagnosed with the osteoarthritis in my hip joint and needed it then, HOWEVER, back in '74 the implants were brand new and made for elderly - over 80 years old only - as they wouldn't have lasted more than approx 5 to 10 years on me. So they had me put it off and I did for over 7 years, until I was 35, and that RUINED my back because of the way I had to walk and use a cane and limped.
Avatar f tn Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms, though it is unlikely to be osteoarthritis at the age of 14 years especially nothing specific was mentioned by your orthopedician. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating doctor. Take care!
Avatar m tn At age 58 in August of 2011 I had my right hip replaced as a result of Osteoarthritis. Then after 2 weeks developed severe pain again that was not relieved by anything. I was made to wait for 5 months before Insurance Companies would allow any further surgery. Then in January 2012 my second surgery to my right hip was done. This seemed to be better for a while. Now in January 2013 at the one year mark I have developed severe pains to my right hip area that travels all the way around my leg.
Avatar f tn Can you have osteoarthritis pain recur AFTER a hip replacement? I have had both hips replaced (THR); the first 16 years ago and the second 7 years ago. The first hip is still doing fine -- hardly know it ever happened. However during the past year the second hip has become quite painful: pain felt in the groin (as hip pain often is) with bending & rotating the hip joint, much like before surgery.
Avatar m tn I have been told that at my age the plan should be to manage the pain as best as I can until it becomes necessary to have a total hip replacement and because of my age I am not a candidate for hip preservation surgery, i.e. arthroscopic remodeling of the femoral head, labrum repair or debridement, etc. I have also been told that cycling is OK as tolerated because it is a closed cycle activity. I also XC ski in the winter. I have recently had xrays and an MRI.
Avatar n tn I am a active 24 year old and have been expierencing aching hips sometimes both at once,sometimes just one and the pain hurts in my lower back and hip,and allso radiated down the back of my thigh and sometimes into my knee when it happens. The hip pain is worse in teh eveing,if i am sitting too long,or too active that dayallso i notice i have the pain when it rains or is cold outside.The pain allso wakes me up at night and interferes with my sleep.
3134561 tn?1342629375 One of the major causes of sudden hip pain is hip fracture. As people age, the possibility of having a fractured hip increases. This is because falls are more likely and bones become thinner, according to medical observers. Meanwhile, osteoporosis sufferers can get a fracture from simple, daily activities, not just from a big fall or injury. Other causes of hip pain include tendinitis, strain, osteonecrosis, sciatica, bursitis, arthritis and infection.
991524 tn?1249345393 I got told that if i dont have surgry my bones will start grinding together which will cause me to have a full hip replacement at the age of 20. So, basically you're going to have surgry either sooner or later. It is not a major operation, usually just day surgery. I have been waiting 2 years and am finally having surgery next week. If i was you I would really consider having the operation.
974371 tn?1424656729 A few months ago, I started having low back and left hip pain that persisted. My dictor finally ordered an x-ray then an a MRI as a month of PT was no help at all. Tests dud show degeneration so he said it is age related, I am just 64. Different PT and they have been basically doing heat and ultrasound, no improvement and I now have pain across lower back, over both hips and a burning pain on the right side of my mid back. I am also going for acupuncture but nothing is helping.
Avatar m tn Yes, 21 is very young to be getting a hip implant, however, I wasn't much older, 28, when I was told in 1974 that I needed a hip implant because of Osteoarthritis. At that time the hip implants were quite knew and my Doctor had me put it off until I couldn't stand the pain anymore because in 1974 the implants were only good for about 5 to 10 years in someone as young and active as I was. I managed to go until I couldn't stand the pain anymore which was another 7 years when I was 35 yrs old.
Avatar f tn Another cause could be some arthritis of the hip. Once we hit fifty most of us develop Osteoarthritis in some or many of our joints. Our body reacts to the years of wear and tear. As I said earlier, it could also be a structural issue of your spine. The last five individual vertebrae in the spine, also known as the lumbar region of the back (the L1-L5 region) is where our spine is most flexible.
Avatar m tn This ball-socket joint is one of the largest and most important joint of the body. The causes of chronic hip pain is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis are most common reason for the pain. Or damage of lower body in an accident leading disability. The surgery is recommended by a surgeon and consultant on the basis of the pain and not by the age, but most of patients are between 50- 80 years.
Avatar f tn Hi My mum has been suffering for months with her right hip - she has a pin in her left hip from the age of 14 (slipped disc). She says it comes and goes but when it comes it is hard for her to walk and she limps around. She went to see her doc who sent her for an XRAY - the XRAY came back saying she has very bad arthritis in her hip - and might need a new hip.
Avatar m tn Even at my worst I did not have large lumps under the skin at the hip joints. You don't say your husband's age, but I know arthritis patients who have had joint replacements in their teens. If the pain is bad enough to impact his quality of life, something must be done. The newest types of implants remove less bone than the old style (which is what i have), and allow for even greater mobility, but the biggest thing is pain relief.
Avatar n tn You don't indicate your age or any other medical conditions, but the symptoms can be possibly related to osteoarthritis of the hip. Best to make an appt with your doctor to reduce the risk of the condition becoming worse and escalating to a chronic problem.
Avatar m tn I chose resurfacing as opposed to total implant due to my stats, mainly my young age---in osteoarthritis years (g)..I'm 51 (male, solid bones, no metal allergies, etc). This procedure preserves more of the bone, something to consider in the event I outlive the life of the implants and require further replacement down the road..Thought I would pass along an excellent patient site on hip implants I stumbled on.

Avatar n tn This a disorder of boys aged about 8-10 of unknown cause, and involves 'aseptic necrosis' (lack of blood supply causing degeneration) of the femoral heads (top of the leg bone that fits in to the hip). This causes hip and/or knee pain bilaterally. One can see some joint space widening on plain xray but ,ay not. MRI should reveal the diagnosis and should be done as soon as possible. Infection in the hip joint should always be considered and excluded.
Avatar f tn Do you have any associated condition such as osteoarthritis or femoroacetabular impingement wherein there is much friction in your hip joint, and it puts you at a greater risk of a hip labral tear Exercises to maximize hip range of motion and hip strength and stability can help to improve symptoms Consult your physical therapist who can analyze your movements which you perform that put stress on your hip joint. This would help you relive and avoidstressful forces.
Avatar n tn Depending upon your age and risk factors, diagnostic considerations include osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, and ankylosing spondylitis, among others. Seeing a rheumatologist may be worthwhile, a s neurological consultation may also help. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I was born with bilateral displasia and underwent a series of treatments (i.e. traction, body cast) culminating with a corrective surgery on my right hip at the age of five. Since then I have had discomfort in my right hip and a limp that bothered me the most when I was fatigued. I have brushed it off as something I must just accept and continued with normal activity. Within the last six years my "symptoms" have changed.
Avatar n tn Many people think hip pain is pain in the sides of the pelvis, others may have pain in the groin, where is the pain? Hip pain, be it groin or sides, may not mean pathology in the hip. There may be something going on with your back. As you are prone to twisting your legs inwards this could also be from a back problem, such as a curvature or the spines (scoliosis). This may lead to one leg being 'shorter' that the other, as the body is not straight.
