1378884 tn?1315509445 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 My question is whether anyone can tell me if osteoarthritis in the lower spine can cause grabbing, debilitating pain that causes the patient to cry out it is so severe. These pains act like pinched nerves, but MRS and Neurological testing shows no nerve damage from the spine. 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.

Avatar f tn It is a pressure pain, on the inner side of the bone, not the outside of the hip, it's hard to explain, but it's as if there is pressure from in-between hip and side, pushing out both ways and I get this pain in both hips and often times it will last anywhere from 30 minutes to hours until I rest or sit down, which sometimes even sitting causes pain. Then I get really bad pains in my like thigh bone, I believe that is my femur.
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 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 I now walk with a cane. I have some osteoarthritis, but the degree of disability is extreme. Spinal MRIs showed a scoliosis, some lesions which are not very common (so don't worry), and a pelvic MRI showed inflammation in most of the major muscle groups, such that I now need steroid injections and am waiting to see a rheumatologist. I take morphine daily just to move. I am NOT saying this will be your future, every person is different.

Avatar f tn Bruised knee they told me. Well I could handle the knee and the hip I just didn't know any better and I've always been a tough chic. I finally went to the Dr. for my knee and I have a torn PCL and also a labral hip tear and ligament damage. I had surgery on the hip and its better. My real problem is I have no quality of life anymore. I can't stand without pulling myself up using something to support me. I am in constant pain in my lower back. Steroid Injections only lasted 3 months.
1033165 tn?1309439016 We all get it at some point. I believe I have it in my fingers, knees and left hip. Fingers are easy to tell cause they swell and they are looking very bumpy at the knuckles which now stay looking that way, and they always hurt. I use Ibuphrophen all the time for other reasons anyway, but when do you seek help and how do they know what kind you have or what to look for.
Avatar f tn Subsets of Osteoarthritis Primary osteoarthritis is characterized by joint pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and weakness. Primary osteoarthritis is also referred to as idiopathic, meaning, there is no known underlying or predisposing cause. Primary osteoarthritis is recognized as the most common form of osteoarthritis. Secondary osteoarthritis has an underlying or predisposing cause.
Avatar n tn Hi, Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative joint disease Spinal arthritis is one of the common causes of back pain.Spinal arthritis is the mechanical breakdown of the cartilage between the aligning facet joints in the back portion (posterior) of the spine that quite often leads to mechanically induced pain. The only effective surgical treatment option for osteoarthritis is a fusion to stop the motion at the painful joint and probably this is the reason for the implant to be used.
587778 tn?1261400718 My doctor sent me for an X-ray and it reveal mild osteoarthritis. Well, in the last week, the are between my patella and thigh began to hurt badly, along the outside of my knee hurts all the way up into my thigh, on the inside the tenderness has progressed, also on the inside of my knee midway up my inner thigh I have a severe line of pain that I can also palpate. My knee and thigh are noticeably larger than the other other one. I am in so much pain.
Avatar f tn Maggie, I really feel for you. I just was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the right hip and severe degeneration of my back disks at L5/S1 - which is where I had a herniated disk in the 90's. I know what it feels like to wake up and wonder if I'll be able to straighten up and walk. And the pain that comes with walking is SO exhausting, that I have rest after a few hours of doing whatever I'm doing. I don't know how you are managing to work with this.
Avatar n tn Joint pain can be caused by a variety of issues such as injuries, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, gout, infections, osteoarthritis, as well as tendinitis. To determine the underlying cause, further evaluation may need to be done such as CBC or blood differential, C-reactive protein, Joint x-ray, sedimentation rate and other blood tests specific to various autoimmune disorders.
488264 tn?1226523907 They did the whole pelvis, but as this clinic is a pre-surgical clinic for potential hip and knee replacement patients the whole picture was not assessed, just the parts relevant to them. It was clear from my first seeing them some two years ago that I was nowhere near needing a hip replacement, but that is their only criteria for seeing me.
Avatar n tn In 1997 an orthopedic surgeon did X-rays, MRI and cat scan of my femur at the hip socket and told me that my hip was falling apart. At the time, it wasn't bad enough to replace but he said I needed to be in a pain management clinic due to the constant pain I am in. The V.A has pain management clinics and could probably help you, you just have to 'prove' to them that you are in enough pain to warrant a consult. It will take months, if not years to do it though.
643387 tn?1223532789 Hiya; I use my heating pad all the time. It really helps with my osteoarthritis pain and it does a pretty good job on the Fibro also. I have a small heating pad that I use on my replaced knee, some days that knee actually throbs, and when I am in a flare, that's when I want to just cut it off. :( This site has been a wonderful find, even tho my family understands the horrific pain I have from the Fibromyalgia it feels good to have a place to go where people really understand.
Avatar f tn My mother had a large disc fusion in '98 and suffers from fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis throughout here body. She has 2fused ankles, replaced hip, carpal tunnel surgery & continuing degenerative disc disease. She was a Professional ballet dancer for the NYC BALLET when she was younger. But with the syrinx it moves as the discs continue to push against the spinal cord. Most prominent at C6-7.
6708370 tn?1471493810 Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is widely recommended for the relief of back pain and the pain of knee and hip arthritis. But a systematic review of randomized trials has found that it works no better than a placebo. Australian researchers reviewed three randomized trials that compared acetaminophen with a placebo for the relief of spinal pain, and 10 trials that compared their use for easing the pain of osteoarthritis. All together, the analysis included 5,366 patients.
Avatar f tn Thank you for the info on the hip problems as well as the osteoarthritis. I have a leg lenght dispcrepancy after a motor vehicle accident whil working. I had ligament transplants done in my left leg 12 years ago and my leg became an in and a half shorter than the right. I also wrecked L4 and L5 in accident. They treated back thru physical therapy for 9 months prior to surgery on leg. I became able to walk, run, ride bicyce, etc after expensive physical therapy.
Avatar f tn I ended up loosing my job and there for lost my insurance. I am now on disability and that wonderful Pelvic Pain specialist doesn't take my new insurance. I have pain if i lay,sit or stand to long. My intestines are covered and in every surgery i have had they were adhered to something inside. I live in pain every day. My pain management doctor just put me on Butrans patches. I hope they help me better. I have tried so many different kinds of medicine.
Avatar f tn I am on disability for a several medical reasons. I do work 9 hrs. a week for 1/4 of the pay I was receiving before becoming disabled. There is no way that I could ever attempt to hold a full-time job again. I can no longer tolerate bright lights, stress/anxiety and I get sensory overload quickly when too many things are going on at one time. What I am able to do now doesn't require any more thought than giving change (which is shown on the cash register) and sometimes I mess that up, lol.
Avatar f tn When they got in to replace the left hip there was nothing there. The entire hip joint had disintegrated, nothing was there. Made a world of difference once I got the new hip in. :) The whole point is to let you know that you are correct in not believing that you are to young. My Doctor figured I'd had my arthritis since I was a teenager. Again I'm glad you're not stopping with just that 1 opinion. You're very wise to get a 2nd opinion. The type of shoes i.
Avatar n tn I currently have 5 herniated disc's, severe stenosis at both the cervical and lumbar levels as well as extensive osteoarthritis and of course degenerative disc disease. He told me that removal of the rods at this point would be risky. He said the risk was so high that he suggested I not have the surgery. As a result I was forced to stop working and go on disability. Ive been on narcotic therapy for the chronic pain for almost 15 years now.
488264 tn?1226523907 After many years of having my hip and groin pain dismissed by doctors as osteoarthritis, I have finally found a good neurologist. I am female early forties, and in the space of a few years gone from being extremely fit to walking with a cane and needing daily morphine to enable me to move. I've now had most of my back and brain MRI'd, and although I didn't get detailed resutls, found out a few things.
15428331 tn?1440594434 Nothing works for my lower back/hip pain. I am doing yoga and stretching exercises but more often than not they aggravate my back even more. Also been trying to walk but the pain in my hips is often so intense I sometimes can't even finish grocery shopping without having to take a break. In so desperate. I want to function normally and live life. I cannot do certain parts of my job so I am in danger of losing it. I don't want to go on disability. Doctors seem to minimize my pain.
