osteoarthritis

Avatar m tn Hi there! Osteoarthritis refers to degenerative arthritis (inflammation) of the joint. Management is largely dependent on the joint involved and the severity and may range from conservative to surgical/ joint replacement. You could read more about the condition online. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn ) I'm sorry that you will be facing a hip replacement. I'm currently recuperating from my 3rd hip replacement. Don't let that frighten you at all because the FIRST one lasted almost 30 years and after it I did EVERYTHING thing that I did before the implant. I wore 4" heels, I danced, I hiked, I ran, I played soft ball with my little kids and the BEST thing of all was that ALL of the pain was GONE!!!! I was just about your age.
1175033 tn?1492204828 ) to ease muscle spasms, and more. I had my first hip replacement at 37, my second at 40. Relatively young, but I'm very, very glad I did it. I know people young than I who've had it done, and they agree it's the best thing they ever did. I had terrible low back pain and sciatic nerve pain until the hips were replaced, now it's pretty much gone. :) Hang in there!
Avatar m tn At age 58 in August of 2011 I had my right hip replaced as a result of Osteoarthritis. Then after 2 weeks developed severe pain again that was not relieved by anything. I was made to wait for 5 months before Insurance Companies would allow any further surgery. Then in January 2012 my second surgery to my right hip was done. This seemed to be better for a while. Now in January 2013 at the one year mark I have developed severe pains to my right hip area that travels all the way around my leg.
Avatar f tn Can you have osteoarthritis pain recur AFTER a hip replacement? I have had both hips replaced (THR); the first 16 years ago and the second 7 years ago. The first hip is still doing fine -- hardly know it ever happened. However during the past year the second hip has become quite painful: pain felt in the groin (as hip pain often is) with bending & rotating the hip joint, much like before surgery.
1378884 tn?1315509445 In a nutshell, osteoarthritis is wear-and-tear on the joint. It can happen at any age, not just to "old people". It can be brought on by an injury, a congenital deformity, overuse in a sport or job. RA is a malfunction of the immune system in which it mistakes joint tissue, mainly the cartilage, as something that must be attacked and eliminated. This causes the typical swelling, redness, heat, and over time, damage that causes pain and disability.
405614 tn?1329147714 I also posted this in the Orthopedic community. I would appreciate any input. 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.
Avatar m tn Sorry to hear that you can't get an allowance for your ill health and the pain you are experiencing. Bones spurs growing on your joint is osteoarthritis. I have it on my bad knee. I saw the xray of my knee and could see the cartilage had worn away in part of the knee joint and I could see a little spikey bone sticking down. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, only a replacement of the knee joint if the condition is severe.
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.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I did cortisone shots, medication and ended up doing a joint replacement in my left hand (at the thumb joint), which failed. Nine surgeries have followed along with getting RSD, probably from so many surgeries. I've been in PT, OT and now pain management. I also get different procedures done and am on a ton of pain medication. I can no longer work and my quality of life has really changed. I'm still processing it and still trying to learn new ways to do things.
Avatar m tn Yes, 21 is very young to be getting a hip implant, however, I wasn't much older, 28, when I was told in 1974 that I needed a hip implant because of Osteoarthritis. At that time the hip implants were quite knew and my Doctor had me put it off until I couldn't stand the pain anymore because in 1974 the implants were only good for about 5 to 10 years in someone as young and active as I was. I managed to go until I couldn't stand the pain anymore which was another 7 years when I was 35 yrs old.
Avatar m tn This lead to inventions of techniques and now there is huge development in methods of hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgery is the use of metal, ceramic or plastic parts to replace the ball at upper end of femur(thigh bone) and reemerge the hip socket in the pelvic bone. This ball-socket joint is one of the largest and most important joint of the body. The causes of chronic hip pain is arthritis.
Avatar f tn 14 Months ago I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in both knees and Buritis in my hips. It came on suddenly and it is very painful. I have seen 2 specialists and have had 2 lots of steroid injections in both knees and one steroid injection in my right hip. I have been taking Meloxicam and painkillers. Today I have been to see a specialist with the view to having knee replacement surgery. After looking at my recent x rays he has informed me that I have Avascular Necrosis in both knees.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am 46 yrs old, male, ex-athlete (competitive level basketball) and live in London, England. A year ago I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis on my left hip during an arthroscopy and most of the joint cartilage is worn out. Take glucosamine tablets regularly. Even though my condition is not so advanced to take painkillers etc, I cannot do any sport, which is important to me (even at a light, amateur level) and walking start bothering me after a few hundered meters.
Avatar n tn Bone cysts, which are areas of relative thinning of the bone, show up as hollow areas on the X-ray adjacent to the joint itself. A hip replacement will often be the treatment of choice if there is significant evidence of osteoarthritis.Otherwise bone grafting can be considered.In this, the cyst is scraped out with a special instrument called a curette. Donor tissue or bone chips are packed into the resulting depression to replace the fluid.
Avatar n tn I have had severe pain in my left hip for a year now. I have had the hip joint frozen twice now and the pain totally went away so am sure it is coming from the hip and not back. The pain is a grabbing pain when I rise from a sitting position or getting in and out of the car and crossing my leg or putting on my shoe or sock is not possible. It is very uncomfortable to sit for any length of time. I am only comfortable when I sit with my legs straight out on the couch or in bed.
Avatar f tn It could be SI Joint related, Osteoarthritis, Facet Joint related, DDD (Degenerative Disc Disease), etc. You need to see your Doctor and have some tests run that can narrow it down. This way you can begin to get the relief that you deserve to stop this pain that you are experiencing. I had this happen to me and it was caused from Osteoarthritis in my hip. It would cause the pain to radiate down my leg all the way to my toes as you are experiencing.
Avatar f tn Hi, The most prevalent form of arthritis is osteo-arthritis. The knee is the most commonly affected joint, followed by the hand and hip. In a study of 697 females >65 years old, knee arthritis occurred in 30%, hand arthritis in 15%, and hip arthritis in 8% (*). Orthovisc injections are synthetic material composed of Hyaluronic acid which increases the viscosity inside the joint cavity, thus decreasing the symptoms. They are not dangerous and have been tried for a quite long time.
233501 tn?1226478134 You hear the inevitable news that you have osteoarthritis of the hip joint. The only treatment that will relieve your pain is replacement of the hip joint…(www.hipresurfacingindia.com) This is the relentless jargon of patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip. The conventional hip replacement involves cutting the head of femur (thigh bone) and replacing it with a metal ball. The diseased acetabulum is replaced with a high density polyethylene cup.
Avatar f tn MRI results show that my hip joint is degenerating (early onset of osteoarthritis), I have tendonosis of my iliopsoas muscles, and grade 1 strains of my adductors and quadratus femorus. The pain is spreading from my buttock to my knee and midway up my back. I have tingling in my shins as well. There are days that I can not walk properly. I recently have had an injection in my SI joint, it did not help.
Avatar m tn I have been told that at my age the plan should be to manage the pain as best as I can until it becomes necessary to have a total hip replacement and because of my age I am not a candidate for hip preservation surgery, i.e. arthroscopic remodeling of the femoral head, labrum repair or debridement, etc. I have also been told that cycling is OK as tolerated because it is a closed cycle activity. I also XC ski in the winter. I have recently had xrays and an MRI.
Avatar m tn I am curious, when you say 'hip implant', do you mean a hip replacement? You said that you have had 3 hip implants? Can you tell us since when, and why so many have had to be replaced? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Those results showed some activity in that area along with minor osteoarthritis I do not need a hip replacement so I am left with pain that is idiopathic. I am wondering if it is muscular because when I lift my right leg, or turn over at night, I cannot straighten my right leg. It is almost as if it is contracted at the hip. I.have to slowly rotate my leg to the right and slowly straighten it. This results in my entire leg tightening up and spamming. Then I can put weight on it.
Avatar n tn Well, pain and stiffness just after you get up after sitting is a sign of RA or osteoarthritis. You said you are very active and a cyclist, perhaps you injured your hips somehow. Resting while taking the anti inflamatory might work. Make sure you take the anti inflamatories with food as they can do damage to your stomach. If it comes back then have it checked out by a Dr. if you have insurance, x-ray, blood work for RA factor, CRP and Sed rate.
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 think, since I'm so hypermobile and have such lax joints, that made the joint even LESS stable. It's like my ligaments/tendons are too loose to hold my joints together. I feel like I'm literally falling apart... I'm in constant pain, stabbing, burning, grinding. Sometimes it feels like someone stuck a knife in between my joints and won't take it out. At this very moment, I feel like I want to rip my head off and set it back on the way it’s supposed to be!
991524 tn?1249345393 I also found out I have had mild hip displasia, and a fast wearing out hip joint and a larger than usual labrum from the displasia that weakened over time...and then tore with the fall. I am too young for hip replacement and its not that bad yet. I am 48 yrs old. I am leaning toward the labrum surgery, but wonder, what if I just kept up with therapy, would the tear mend itself ? I was told the hip with degenerate faster without the repair. Any input anyone? Thanks so much!
Avatar m tn I'm new to this group but have been around for a while in the MS forum. As carolanivey said, the pain that you describe as being in his groin is really in his hip. I used to think that hip pain had to be felt on the outside. Not so much :-) The actual hip socket is right where the top of the femur turns in to meet the pelvis. This was a marvel of anatomy I learned when my doc told me I had about 80% bone on bone osteoarthritis in my left hip. I was 49 then (53 now).
15502615 tn?1440998653 However, your doctor may recommend surgery if you have severe pain or joint damage, or if your hip joint is so damaged that it needs to be replaced.
