Osteoarthritis hip injury

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip injury


1378884 tn?1315509445 It felt like someone had driven a knife into my hip. On the injury report I reported hip and low back pain. An Xray was done and then a MRI on my lumbar sacrum area. Slight disk buldge and no impingement on nerves, some early signs of arthritis. I was still complaining about hip pain but no one listened until a month ago.
1378884 tn?1315509445 My guess is you have a low back injury that is irritating the sciatic nerve, which travels down the back of your hip and down your leg. Bone deposits can build up due to altered mechanics in how your walk, sit, stand, etc. after an injury. The old song, "the hip bone's connected to the knee bone" has more than a little truth to it! A foot injury, for example, makes you limp. This puts stress on the adjacent joints, so eventually your knees, hips and back start to hurt, too.
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.
Avatar f tn maybe a car accident, or you hit your hip on a sharp, hard corner or you fell on your hip... it is inflammation of the fluid-filled sac (bursa) that lies between a tendon and skin, or between a tendon and bone... so RA or osteoarthritis can increase your risk of development... I had it on my leg after a car accident and after physical therapy for it I finally got through it... the bursa was absorbed by my body is what the doctor told me... it hurt like fire burns!
1131208 tn?1260211546 An MRI and a CAT scan showed a fracture of the subcortical something or other in the left hip an injury which occurred ten years ago on a ski trip. Osteoarthritis set in and after ten years has worn away all of the cartiledge and now it is "bone grinding on bone" a severely painful condition which limits my mobility and is ruining my life.
Avatar n tn Your symptom of sudden pain, then hearing a pop and swelling suggests that you have ligament injury. If the patient has a ligament injury, the patient will report a deceleration injury or twisting the knee that led to immediate symptoms of swelling and pain. In fact, 30 to 50% of patients will report actually hearing a “pop” at the time of injury. Your symptom of locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries. Are there any positions that make your knee more or less comfortable?
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 n tn I have had severe left hip pain for over a year now but now it has also moved to my right hip and groin area please someone help???
Avatar m tn This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
Avatar n tn Pain shot up my thigh into my groin and hip. The pain continues to be severe at times in the exact same area, especially at night when trying to turn over in bed. It feels as if the bone is coming apart. At the time of my fall my doctor did not order xrays because I was not limping. He felt I had pulled a groin muscle. Would a pulled muscle last this long and be this severe?
Avatar m tn This promotes your body’s own ability to heal chronic injury/damage by initiating a controlled inflammatory response and usually 3-6 treatments are sufficient. You have to be assessed by a qualified MD, to determine if this is suited for you. Extracts of Boswellia Serrata have been clinically studied for osteoarthritis and joint function. Their anti-inflammatory efficiency surpasses prescribed medications.
Avatar n tn I'm 30, male, healthy but not athletic, and not overweight. The injury feels like I overstretched something, similar to a pulled muscle. From the squat position it is at the top of the knee, above the cap and painful to any pressure. It has evolved into a dull pain behind the cap and located at the top. I work a desk job and the worst part is keeping the knee in the sitting position. It is really difficult to stand up and straighten it out.
1522912 tn?1292053850 The onl history I can think of leading up to the start of this pain was that I was over training my legs and could have done an injury then, but I had onlt started training my legs so hard because they had already started swelling daily and I thought I was getting fat before I realised it was actually fluid. The swelling started after having sclerotherapy injections for spider veins in my legs back in February this year but the swelling never went away. Can any body help me?
Avatar n tn When I stand up after sittting for a period of time my legs are stiff and achy in the joints but recently my hip has really been bothering me. It hurts until it feels like it has cracked then it's better until I sit, then stand up again. I've noticed this for a long time and recently my roomate has pointed out that my joints crack and pop every time I stand up, loud enough that others hear it. I've been very active lately and when I move for an extended period the pain goes away.
3134561 tn?1342629375 Hip replacement surgery is one of the most prescribed treatments for hip problems. The Stryker hip replacement recall broadens definition of metal-on-metal hip. There are several people all over the world who are dealing with hip pain problems on a daily basis. Hip pain usually occurs to people that are in the age groups of the young generation (from 0 to 15 years) and the older generation (45 years old up), medical experts say. Below are signs that one needs to consult a doctor.
Avatar n tn I have had severe pain in my right hip for about a year. No injury occurred. After 3 orthopedic surgeons, numerous X-Rays, and MRI's it has been determined that I have severe arthritis, a torn labrum, and several cysts on my femur. The last orthopedic doc suggested hip resurfacing as opposed to hip replacement and referred me to an orthopedic at Cleveland Clinic. However, my appointment isn't for 4 months.
991524 tn?1249345393 Have you had any type of injection(s) - Corticosteroid, Anesthesia (into the joint), Physical Therapy, hip locking episodes, recent incident that could have caused this injury, what type of pain relief have you been using - Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc.., x-rays/ MRI (an MRI is paramount here). I don't know what else to add. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions about this or any other issues. Best wishes!
11446628 tn?1418302080 I have osteoarthritis in my spine, from neck down. I also have pain in my knee and hands, and my fingers are twisting and have knots. My right knee has had pain and swelling for weeks, and this morning it's too painful to walk. I haven't injured it. Recent blood test didn't report rheumatoid arthritis. So what's going on with my knee, and with my hands?
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.
1415174 tn?1453246703 I had a MRI of lower back and bone scan before injury #3 and it was totally normal. I had a hip Xray after injury 3 and it was also normal. After injury 3 I can cross my left leg over the right knee while sitting but not the same as the right side. When I try, the muscles in the left buttock are very tight and I get increased pain in the injury area mentioned above but it doesn't last into the next day.
Avatar f tn At the age of 27 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left hip and needed a hip replacement back in 1973 but they had me put it off until as long as I could because the hip implants were knew then and it wouldn't have lasted longer than 5 to 10 years at that time. I managed to wait until I was 35 years old and was walking with a cane and on Tylox and couldn't walk anymore before I did. In turn, my putting it off caused sever damage to my back and that in turn caused the DDD.
Avatar m tn My doctor that worked on my back was always baffled as to why I had hip pain and suggested that I get a second opinion from a hip specialist. Since he recently retired it's kind of hard to build the same kind of trust I had with him in a totally new doctor unfamiliar with my situation. I was hoping someone on here has any clue as to what might be going on and/or if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can get this taken care of.
Avatar n tn In all probability you have osteoarthritis of hip joint due to injury (and not due to aging). You would need to consult an orthopedic specialist for this. Please go through this link to learn more: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/arthritis.html It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
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 n tn Hi, I can understand from your post that she is indeed having hip pain and radicular pain too. Common causes of hip pain include dislocation, fracture, and osteoarthritis. Axial low back pain with a referral pain pattern may also occur in the hip. It is more common, however, for axial low back pain with referral pain to occur in the buttocks and/or leg(s) in a pattern that is difficult to localize.
Avatar n tn But if you look at the whole picture it would seem to me that many of your medical problems can be traced back to the injury. Arthritis often sets in after an injury. I am far from an expert on Fibromyalgia but I have read that it can be triggered by an injury. Chronic pain often is accompanied by fatigue, depression and anxiety. Hypertension can be caused by anxiety. An injury that results in the loss of ones ability to function as they once did can also result in an adjustment disorder.
182884 tn?1259316506 I am a 55 year old female with a long standing back injury, Sept. 1999. I just recently saw a Neurosurgeon for constant back pain and with a current MRI. Unfortuanlaty he said he could not help me. My back has deterortated so badly, that I now have five levels of bad disks, herniated and or bulging. I also have SI disease and Facet Disease. The cartilage is eroded, bone on bone. He said he could not fuse anything as there are too many levels and it is moving steadily up my back.
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.
1448748 tn?1312959808 I read a little about spinal stenosis or osteoarthritis and it seems to fit, but that probably couldn't change in 5 months right? FYI I have never had any imaging done of my hips and that is the area that is the most painful to me. I am kind of looking or thinking about something that could have changed in 5 months...
Avatar m tn Normal. No evldencr: of muscle or tendon injury about the hip, Limited evaluation of intrapelvic soft tissues is normal. No abnormal fluid in the trochanteric bursa to suggest bursitis, IMPRESSION: Advanced osteoarthritis of the lef~ hip is of uncertain etiology, but likely associated with bone on bone apposition, resorptive reformation, and complete maceration of the anterosuperior and superior aspects of the labrum.
