Avatar f tn Could this be osteoarthritis? Or Ra? I have been taking anti-inflammatories and I seem to respond well. In other words it takes away any pain. I am planning on seeing a rheumatologist soon. Please advise! Thank you!

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn I had bilateral knee replacements two years ago and recently my left knee has been paining me quite often. I have to sit on the aisle seat in theaters so I can stretch it out or if in one position too long it becomes excruciating. My right knee may get a bit stiff from the lengthy sitting but that is all. Why is the one so painful? I stretch my legs daily and walk stairs everyday at home and in school where I teach. Does this mean my operation is deteriorating so soon?
Avatar f tn I have a mostly desk type job, and plan to be off work 3 weeks. What I don't know is how do I take care of myself at home. My husband can be home with me as long as necessary. How is the best way to sleep? I understand I will have trouble swallowing for weeks or months but will that be due to pain or swelling in my neck? If you are home resting in a recliner and watching tv, can you take off the front part of the collar as long as you aren't up and walking around?
Avatar n tn If I come up with any other explination I will let you all know. I did hear that B12 does work. I had my blood work done complete and all came back normal as well. I will post with any other findings that I have and I encourage the rest of you to do the same so we all give each other hope and some assurance that we don't have some crazy bad disease. BTW I am 27.... if that matters.
Avatar n tn It appeared that my doctor was going to take an agressive approach to figure out what was happening to me when she ordered such extensive blood work, but she is now resolved to accept Vitamin D deficiency as the end all, be all. There's been a lot of press lately on the topic of decreased levels of D in women. Most of what I've read attributes this to sunscreen and adults no longer drinking enriched milk, and listed symptoms include general muscle and joint pain.
Avatar n tn I am on very high doses however and so it limits my driving and am now unable to work and have qualified for disability. I much rather be able to work as I loved my job. I just know that I would mis more that just 4 day a month and would not be able to even drive to work. Wish there was an answer because my mind is sharp and I have all kinds of ideas but my body is too weak to do anything.
211940 tn?1267884866 The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons near the large joints, such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body. When a person reaches overhead, the tendons that move the shoulder must glide almost two inches past a bone surface. The acromion is the large bursa in the shoulder that protects and cushions the tendons as they glide beneath the shoulder blade.
Avatar n tn Along with this I just started (two weeks ago) right Iliac Crest pain. Not sure what to do about that. I did use my own bone for this surgery. The hip pain is just another in the whole thing. Why has it started after about 4 months? I am a smoker but am on Wellbutrin to quit ad my Neuro says this may help. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn On his they used some of his hip bone for the fusion. He complained more about hip pain than neck pain. Good Luck with your surgery and don't take it as lightly as other poster did. Everyone is different in the way they heal and some push themselves through the pain when they should not.
Avatar n tn My Doctor has ordered more tests so I am waiting. I asked my sister to read me her TSH level from her blood work when she was diagnosed & it is the same is mine. She had been misdiagnoded in the past. I have been searching the web to see if there is a connection to Beta-Thalassemia Minor & thyroid. I have only found one that connected the two, but I am still searching.
Avatar f tn Been to countless dermatologists and tried all kinds of expensive prescription creams, steroid creams, and regular OTC itch remedies--NOTHING has worked. I also tried acupuncture, chiropractic work, and diet changes. My only diagnosis, which is what I think it is, is brachioradial pruritis, but the only prescription for relief was more creams—no root of cause or lasting cure or solution. Only relief is ice.
Avatar n tn they see neck swollen, but i still get a run around. nothing shold hurt.. i live and work on a farm, which could be i just hurt something and they can see it, but this thread has me wondering. I am on disability with medicaid, so i dont have much options. im lost.. any advise would be app. i cant here the word anxiety one more time. yes i now do have anxiety cause i can find help.
Avatar n tn I was at work the other day and spoke with a co-worker that I don't often see because of our different shifts. I explained to her that I was recently off work for a month because I would get burning eyes and an odd smell of smoke in my nose that seemed to happen only when I was at work. When I am off on vacation or days off, the smell of smoke would disappear after a couple days. We both were surprised when she to said that she has being experiencing this same smell of smoke.
363682 tn?1299492962 -Full blood work: nothing unusual. Trigylercirin is high, but hey. 320 where <150 is normal. -my doctor has prescribed AntiHestamin and allergy medicine ( patanase, veramist) to clear up any de-congestion that I would have in my nasal system. - MRI :I don't have sinus problems, just a minimal normal cavity, which my doctor too has along with 25% of the population. So that's not it. I'm 27, and this started at 26. This all started after I got sick while in vacation drinking in Europe.
Avatar n tn Last week I noticed a lump on my right side where my thigh begins. Right at the joint. I also noticed a few red spots. Which is strange because I'd itch but there wouldn't be any marks on my skin. I look normal. I went to see my doctor and he told me I had shingles. Which explains the red spots and the lump. He put me on Valtrex (sp?) and I've been taking it for the past 4 days. I noticed the overall itch has gotten much much worse and still have no clue why it's so bad!!
Avatar m tn my self im going to try to experiment with many things to find a cure for this crappy problem because i work night shift and i cant sleep because i get attacked while sleeping durring the day. ps.
