1522912 tn?1292053850 I did see a heart specialist as one doctor thought I may have contracted infectious endocarditis because I have a mitral valve prolapse alreay but that checked out ok, I have also been tested for diabetes and kidney function and they were both ok, I've had a pelvic ultrasound which only showed some small fibroids in my uterus, not big enough to be causing any symptoms, a hip mri which didn't show anything, saw a vein specialist and no deep vein problems, an endocrinolgist who tested my thyroid
405614 tn?1329147714 I discovered that I have a hip labral tear in my right hip, and went to see a surgeon about having it repaired arthroscopically. I was told that my hip arthritis was to advanced to have a good outcome and I would be needing a hip replacement, and should wait until then. Her chart notes said that I have " hip symptoms consistent with femoral acetabular impingement and arthritis. The MRI arthrogram also shows diffuse articular thinning.
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.
203342 tn?1328740807 Hello. I have a maltese mix who was diagnosed with Cushings Disease several months ago. The vet said there's medication but that it's very expensive and doesn't seem to prolong their life. I made the decision to just watch him and let him live out his life. He's 11 years old. This last year I've noticed a decline in him somewhat but not sure if it's because of the Cushings or just old age. He has trouble with his back legs a lot now just suddenly giving out especially on stairs.
Avatar f tn Also, lidocaine should be used with caution in patients with bradycardia, those with first or second degree heart block, and severe liver or renal disease. Cortisone injection may be used sometimes because of its effectiveness to some but not necessarily mean the choice of management. It is always recommended (and due to limitations of the internet) that patients seek their primary physicians to discuss the best management plan suited for them. Take care and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn Also, my ortho surgeon has prescribed high does of Naproxen, which I am reluctant to take because I have high blood pressure and a family history of heart disease, not to mention the fact I am over 70. Do I have any alternative? I'd appreciate any advice.
Avatar n tn I have Celiac and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Also Fibromyalgia, slightly enlarged heart, vocal cord dysfunction, acid reflux disease, high blood pressure. I have gained almost 80 pounds in the past five years since all these problems came about (never having a weight problem my entire life, I am 56).

387767 tn?1345875627 The knee is the most commonly affected joint, followed by the hand and hip. The diagnosis of osteoarthritis is not difficult when the disease is in the moderate or advanced stage. Early arthritis can be confused with the following conditions, Tendinitis or bursitis, Stress fractures or Synovial proliferative disorders. Rest, activity modification, weight loss, and NSAIDs are general measures for treatment. Are you on physiotherapy? What physiotherapy are you on?
Avatar n tn Routine X-ray examinations of my back and hip found a left-hip pathology, the onset of osteoarthritis. My doctor thinks this could account for my symptoms, via an entrapped nerve in that left-hip region.
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.
525545 tn?1293184794 I have had my family tell me as well as my forum family / friends that I need to take care of myself. And Love myself. I would like to do learn to do this, I don't know how. I only know how to take care of others in need. That is what I have always done. I just is not natural feelings for me to take care of Shar, daughter- wife-mother- sister and in law to my husbands family(which is a major source of my heartache.) It has always been my job to take care of other people I love.
1763947 tn?1334058919 I had my right hip replaced 4 years ago and now my left side is bone on bone and I will eventually need a left hip replacement. My neck is a mess as is my back. Just wondered if I am the lucky one or do others get it along with their Lyme.?
Avatar n tn Hi, What you are describing is a polyarthritis (red, hot, whollen painful joints) and polyarthralgias (multiple painful, if not swollen) joints. There are many causes. And yes, you need to seek a good work up for them. Osteoarthritis does not show up this way, though joints which already have some osteo will also hurt during this kind of episode. The causes can range from a delayed allergic reaction, as someone mentioned to a rheumatologic (auto-immune) problem, to an infectious one.
Avatar f tn I have crohn's, enteropathic arthritis, lupus, hosimoto thyroid and back issues...oh, DDD and osteoarthritis. I have retrolethesis at L3. Disk is pushing in, out os alignment on my spinal chord. The pain mgt doc gave me an epideral of steroids in Dec., it escalated the pain in my right leg, hips and back. He recently started me on butrans 5mcg/hr. It's help with the back pain. GI doc wanted me off...concerned about side effects.
Avatar f tn But my right leg is a little bit shorter than the left leg, and the muscles in my right thigh are smaller and somewhat atrophied compared to the muscles in m left leg. My x-rays show some early osteoarthritis in my right hip, and my right hip is pretty deformed and flattened out on top. I struggle to remain active. I too enjoy working out - weight lifting, hiking, cycling, etc - but it can be pretty difficult to do on some days.
Avatar f tn I had acid reflux for a year and was medicated for it. I have spinal and hip pain with Osteoarthritis in my jaw. Since my surgery and my 2 rounds of Lupron and since being on Marvelon I no longer have nausea, I have had one migraine in 6 yrs, less heart palpatations, no more acid reflux, etc. The pill worked for me and my doctor is amazed because it is such a low dosage. I ended up with PID which caused severe damage to the amazing surgery I had had.
Avatar f tn On my fathers side, who passed away in 04' due to heart disease on his side of my family. My uncle had a heart transplant. Also my circulation causes "modeling" or purple-ness web like coloring on legs, feet,arms. Especially in cold temps (70 deg. Or lower). Again thank you for the advice and help.
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.
Avatar n tn I had the pain in my left leg to start with and that turned out to be Osteoarthritis in my left hip and I've had a hip implant back in 1981 at the age of 35 years of age. Then I suffered pain again in BOTH of my legs and that turned out to be DDD ( Degenerative Disc Disease) in my back. I've since had an RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) where they "Kill" off the nerve endings and that last anywhere from 3mo to 18mo or SOMETIMES 24 months. Mine is still working great.
Avatar f tn I have seen doctor after doctor. I have had x rays and MRIs. I was told I have degenerative disc disease. I was told have osteoarthritis. Now I am having problems with sciatica. The pain is in my hips and sometimes shoots down to my foot making it tingle. Lately I have been having pain in my shoulder up towards my neck. Now my left arm is bothering me with a burning/tingling sensation to my fingers. Most of this is occuring on the left side. I do not have problems every day.
Avatar n tn My first THR was in 1981, after they discovered my Osteoarthritis in my left Hip when I was 27 years old, in approximately 1974. They had me put off the THR Surgery until they could improve on the Hip Implant's, themselves, because I was so very young and they were new and wouldn't last but approximately 4 years at that time. Because of putting the surgery off for 7 years, it caused damage to my Lumbar, lower back (a ruptured disc), because of the extra strain on my back.
996946 tn?1503252712 I've seen a lot of people mention knee pain and I tend to wonder if they have arthritis, I have arthritis in some of my joints which include my knees but I never consider that pain as my Fibro pain. That always hits me hard in the thighs and hip areas. Just to sit on a toilet can be very painful. The siatica nerve can cause a very sharp pain in the back and down the leg, but that is a different type of pain as opposed to Fibro pain.
1727909 tn?1314848810 I, too, have heart problems. I have 5 stents and have CAD (Cardiovascular Disease). With all of that, Fentanyl works fine for me. Again, you need to discuss this with your Doctor's. It helps my arthritic pain and my DDD thru out my entire spine. From the Cervical thru the Thoracic thru the Lumbar. :( Don't know where I'd be without my Pain Management. Please stay I touch and let us know how you are doing. I, actually ALL of us, tend to worry about everyone that posts on here.
