Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip low back pain

osteoarthritis

Avatar f tn I have had pain in my low back and hip for over a year. I have been treated for sciatica, piriformis syndrome and SI dysfunction. An Xray of my hip shows that I have acetabular retroversion, which basically means my hip sockets aren't aligned properly with my joint. 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.
1175033 tn?1492204828 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!
974371 tn?1424656729 A few months ago, I started having low back and left hip pain that persisted. My dictor finally ordered an x-ray then an a MRI as a month of PT was no help at all. Tests dud show degeneration so he said it is age related, I am just 64. Different PT and they have been basically doing heat and ultrasound, no improvement and I now have pain across lower back, over both hips and a burning pain on the right side of my mid back. I am also going for acupuncture but nothing is helping.
Avatar m tn Here the the likely causes are trochanteric bursitis, pyriformis syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, and low back pain. Problems with the joint are often treated with surgery; outside the joint is more likely to respond to physical therapy.
Avatar n tn I have worked as a paramedic for 20 years, Over the past 2 to three years I have begun to limp, my left leg seems longer than the right, and a lot of pain in left hip and left lower back. I have been diagnosed with 4 minor bulging disks in my lumbar region and went through 8 weeks of PT with no relief. The Doctor I saw at the time said this was just normal aging for a 46 year old female and nothing to be concerned with.
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 It can be due to arthritis(osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis),trochanteric bursitis(Inflammation of the sacs or space around the joint), Tendinitis from repetitive or strenuous activity, toxic synovitis or infection of the hip joint leading to necrosis. Low-back pain such as sciatica or fractures can also cause such pain.One more possibility is developmental dysplasia of the hip.Have you been investigated for all of these?
1522912 tn?1292053850 My mother has a similar pain, hers is her sciatic nerve, its a disease called sciatia im pretty sure. you could try googling that.
Avatar n tn I have the one on Hip and Knee Pain and it's very informative. Will be purchasing the one on Back Pain next.
Avatar f tn The pain was so bad I called and went back to my orthopedic for help with the pain. Given pain killers. Went back to the pain doctor and he thought he overfilled the joint. The orthopedic referred me to a sciatic specialist in Chicago for sciatic surgery. The sciatic specialist was not sure it was my sciatic so he sent me to a different pain specialist. This one repeated the sciatic injection and I was in terrible pain again.
Avatar n tn Some before and now more intensly after I had an abdominal hystertomy 9 months ago. I have had a terrible time with back pain, hip and groin pain, pain down my legs and slipping of the knee and both hips. I can not walk or move quickly, turn, sit, stand or bend without severe pain and locking of my hip. After two steriod injections (pirisformis and bursa) ,months of PT and about 20 Chiroptactic appointments, my knee feels better and my back only hurts if I overdue anything.
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.
Avatar m tn 54yr old female,have had this chronic lower back pain that radiates to hip area.I do have arthritis in lower back and hip,but the meds for it does nothing.I stretch every night before bed and every morning before getting out to no avail.I look like I'm 90 yrs old after a pain full ten minutes of trying to get out of bed.I have to inhale to stand up straight(omg the pain) but once I pee and get into kitchen for coffee I'm fine.The only doctor I haven't seen is a nerve doctor.
Avatar n tn I recently went in for my 6th epidural steroid injection and it helped A LOT with the hip pain and low back pain such that I can sit in my favorite arm chair comfortably and when I stand up, I don't have pain. However, it has been 2 weeks since the injection and the sciatica is returning, unfortunately. But the sciatica is intermittent so I can deal with that as long as it doesn't come back full force like it was 2 weeks before getting the injection.
Avatar n tn It can be due to arthritis(osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis),trochanteric bursitis(Inflammation of the sacs or space around the joint), Tendinitis from repetitive or strenuous activity, strain or sprain of the muscles due to its overuse or infection of the hip joint leading to necrosis. Low-back pain such as sciatica or fractures can also cause such pain. Without physical examination it is very difficult to make a diagnosis.
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 The major symptoms are pain and stiffness. The pain is usually first felt in the low back, but may eventually be present throughout the whole spine. Often there is pain which may be felt down the back of the buttocks and thighs (sciatic-like pain). Pain is worse in the morning and improving with exercise. *In a number of patients, however, spondylitis starts and progresses differently. Some people feel pain with little or no stiffening.
941625 tn?1263585382 I did six rounds of chemo and 33 radiation treatments. I have had chronic and horrible lower back pain ever since. I have been seeing a rheumatologist for this, and he found some arthritis and fused vertebraes. He says he's not sure why my back hurts though all the time and just keeps me on a low dose of percocet. The problem is it isn't managing my pain and I can't stand this. Does anyone else have chronic pain in this area following treatment? If so, what are your docs and you doing to treat?

Avatar n tn , kidney dr said he didn't feel it was anything to worry about at this time, also showed 2 cysts on Left ovary that have since cleared and so has the side pain, assumed to be from cysts.

Avatar f tn hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hasimotos thyroiditis, gout (can sometimes cause multiple joint pain), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE, electrolyte disturbance particularly those involving calcium and magnesium, parathyroid gland problems, chondrocalcinosis and chronic fatigue syndrome. 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 f tn I tried to start dancing again in january, but by this point cannot make it through more than twenty minutes of class before either weakness or pain forces me to sit down. My hip had been doing much better, but I still cannot jump and land with my whole weight on my left leg, I cannot run or do anything high-impact, and I feel uncomfortable just standing on my left leg alone.

Avatar n tn Many people think hip pain is pain in the sides of the pelvis, others may have pain in the groin, where is the pain? Hip pain, be it groin or sides, may not mean pathology in the hip. There may be something going on with your back. As you are prone to twisting your legs inwards this could also be from a back problem, such as a curvature or the spines (scoliosis). This may lead to one leg being 'shorter' that the other, as the body is not straight.
