Osteoarthritis hip cortisone

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip cortisone


Avatar f tn Happy Friday! I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left hip. A hip replacement is inevitable, but I hope to manage the pain (which has been getting worse this year) for a while, before facing surgery. I got my first infection on October 1 (16 days ago), hoping for some relief for my daughter's wedding that was on October 10. I regret to say that, so far, I am not feeling much relief at all.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I have taken ibuprofen for weeks at a time in the past for the osteoarthritis in my jaws. I try to take it sparingly for it now. But I get frequent heartburn and was recently put on cytotec generic, which is supposed to help with stomach lining. I have tried acupuncture, which I thought helped some, herbal heat pack, ice, valium, ibuprofen and wear a flat-planed splint for my jaw osteoarthritis.
Avatar f tn They did give me these lidocaine patches for my hand and I tried it on my hip and it gave me some real relief. I have not done he cortisone shots on my hip yet. That was one of the things they did to my hand and they did too many which made a bad problem in my hand even worse. But the hip can really be bad. I know mine wakes me up, can't get comfortable sitting, lying or standing. I put pillows between my legs. One thing I did notice that helped is using an elliptical machine.
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.
Avatar m tn Hi, The symptoms of severe pain that you are experiencing may be due osteoarthritis or degenerative disease of the spine. The treatment of osteoarthritis includes exercise, medications and measures to protect the joints. This includes a teamwork of rheumatologist, physical therapist and orthopedic surgeon. Please consult an orthopaedic surgeon and rheumatologist for treatment and continue the physiotherapy at the same time for the relief of the symptoms. Hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn I have tried the usual treatments, chiropractic, acupuncture, physio with ultra-sound and cortisone shots in the bursa and in the hip joint. The cortisone shot in the hip joint helped me with sitting but after 7 weeks have found the effects are wearing off. I have had a catscan which showed some back problems but pointed to the hip as the possible cause of pain. The MRI of my hip showed mild arthritis and some deterioration of the labrum.
1388332 tn?1285350047 Have you checked with your Doctor at all concerning this pain in your Hip? You might be encountering the beginnings of Osteoarthritis in your Hip Joint. I've lived with that for the past 36 years. I've had 2 hip implants and I'm getting ready for a third in September. It would benefit you to make an appointment with your PCP (Family Doctor) and see what they think and depending what they discover from possibly some x-rays go on to either an Orthopedic Specialist or a Rheumatologist.
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.
1310633 tn?1430227691 Does anyone have any experience with, or heard of, Adequan, Cartrophen or Cortisone shots for the treatment of pain associated with hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, etc, in dogs? My English Mastiff has developed osteoarthritis in her right hind leg, and surgery isn't recommended this late in life, and an alternative to oral treatment (and far more effective from what the vet has told us, although MUCH more expensive), is shot treatment.
Avatar m tn The Dr there wants me to have Facet injections and I am so afraid to try that. I have had some cortisone injections that have done nothing. I went back to my Family Practitioner who said it sounds like I could also have a touch of arthritis in my back and hips so she set up an appt for me to see a rhrumatologist. Anyone experience anything like this? It no that I want pain meds but that seems like the only thing that helped. I am in so much pain!
Avatar m tn My husband was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in his right hip about 5 months ago but the doctor said he's too young for a hip replacement at this time. He had a cortisone injection which seems to be helping somewhat. He never really had hip pain but instead had groin pain which apparently is common. While the pain has lessened, the lymph node or swelling in the groin area has increased significantly. It looks as though someone inserted an egg under his skin in the groin.
Avatar n tn I was just diagnoised with a labral tear of my right hip, was not told exactly where but was told by my orthopedic that I had to go to another specialist that does the arthroscopic surgery. I have been dealing with my hip pain for over 3 years and was always told it was from bursitis until I found this doctor that finally diagnoised me with my tear.
Avatar f tn I went today for what was supposed to be my second xray guided cortisone injection in my right hip. I've got osteoarthritis (among other chronic pain issues) - ortho doc has already told me this WILL require a hip replacement at some point, but we're both trying to hold off on that surgery as long as possible.
Avatar m tn I couldn't find anything close to hip pain. I have had pain in my right hip for two days now. There doesn't seem to be any one particular occurance that could have caused this pain besides running a few miles. It just developed over two days. When I lie on my stomach, bend my knee and raise my leg and foot upward, then attempt to bring the foot and leg inward it induces acute pain. This also occurs when I am walking. As of right now, I am virtually paralyzed.
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 m tn I have Osteoarthritis in my right hip, my Orthopedic doctor said and I will be needing a total hip replacement in the furture. I am 40yrs old and have 8 years in Law enforcement, he told me that Cortisone shots were not good and that accupuncture was not recommended. What other options to I have to perlong my hip to keep my job I just stated? I want to try accupuncture, if not surgery to scrape my hip to ease the pain. what are my other options?
Avatar n tn Hello, Your mother seems to be having osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that is caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. Cartilage is a protein substance that serves as a "cushion" between the bones of the joints. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis. Treatment includes reduction of weight, exercise and support devices like splints, canes, walkers, and braces.
Avatar n tn This is why you may hear of Syvisc as a 'motor oil' for the synovial joint, including the hip joint. Also called wear-and-tear arthritis or degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis is characterized by progressive wearing away of the cartilage of the joint. As the protective cartilage is worn away by knee arthritis, bare bone is exposed within the joint .It is not necessary that if one knee is affected the other will also be affected.
Avatar n tn Can taking a fall cause the osteo to become more prevalent? She was given a cortisone shot in her hip as that was hurting as well and told it was arthritis. Can a fall cause arthritis to flare up? Or is this related to her RA?
Avatar f tn i have gegenerative athuritis low back right hip right knee and in both thumbs i am allergic to paini meds andthe dr will not give mr arth meds he said it would be bad for my kideys an dr said due to other health issues i am not a candidate for surgery PLEASE HELP
Avatar n tn I also saw a rheumatologist who just commented after doing some blood work and examining the other test results that the only thing really abnormal was the severe osteoarthritis in the hip. Now the pain is back again. The pain moves around on the leg. Often it is in the shin and the inside of the thigh and back/hip area. My muscles feel weak. I can not sleep at night. The pain is so bad. Sitting hurts. Exercising hurts. What kind of doctor can I go to who could solve this?
Avatar n tn You would be surprised how much you start to favor the injured knee and it causes you to walk differently. It affected my hip and foot and I actually required a cortisone injection to relieve those symptoms. I think I had foot/hip pain for about 6 months after my knee surgery.
Avatar f tn Consult an orthopaedician for assessment and treatment directed towards it since continuous irritation could hasten osteoarthritis in the hip joint is affected. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn 54yr old female,have had this chronic lower back pain that radiates to hip area.I do have arthritis in lower back and hip,but the meds for it does nothing.I stretch every night before bed and every morning before getting out to no avail.I look like I'm 90 yrs old after a pain full ten minutes of trying to get out of bed.I have to inhale to stand up straight(omg the pain) but once I pee and get into kitchen for coffee I'm fine.The only doctor I haven't seen is a nerve doctor.
Avatar f tn I have severe arthritis with bone spurs in my left hip joint. I had no problems and then woke up four months ago with severe pain. Went to my doctor who gave me some options. I wasn't ready to accept referral to a surgeon as I thought it might go away. In the meantime she gave me some drugs. Dicloffinac and tramadol and sent me for a cortisone shot. By this time I needed a cane to walk.
