osteoarthritis

Avatar f tn As of April 2005, doctors at the Mayo Clinic began supporting prolotherapy. Mayo Clinic doctors list the areas that are most likely to benefit from prolotherapy treatment: ankles, knees, elbows, and sacroiliac joint in the low back. They report that "unlike corticosteroid injections — which may provide temporary relief — prolotherapy involves improving the injected tissue by stimulating tissue growth.
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 f tn I have seen a Rheumatologist at the Mayo Clinic down here in Florida, and he seemed to be of the opinion that I absolutely could not possibly have arthritis at my age. I don't believe that to be true, but that doesn't necessarily mean that I have it... Just that my age doesn't determine whether I could or not. I will be seeking a second opinion. As for the diabetic neuropathy, I have done numerous tests for diabetes and for neuropathy separately.
Avatar n tn Oh My Gosh...You might be my medical twin -except I'm 44! I could have written your post myself (except for the falling asleep in the car part) and until now, hadn't found anyone with issues like me. I have all those symptoms...major laxity of joints that is progressive. It started about three years ago after fertility treatment, after a jump into water from a cliff in Hawaii and after exposure to chemicals while we were having our house renovated.

625530 tn?1221870270 I don't think I've had any other symptoms associated with Lyme or lupus, though I've had occasional mild joint pain in the fingers (diagnosed as early osteoarthritis). No diabetes as far as I know -- blood sugar levels have been fine. I have an upcoming neurology appointment, but I'm having to wait quite awhile for it. These sensations are really not that bad in and of themselves, but they're scary. I guess I'm wondering how scared to be. Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn The tests all came back within normal range (whatever that is supposed to mean as we all have different normal’s), so he gave me prilosec and a steroid/lidocaine cream, which I used for a while, but I continued to struggle so he then sent me to Mayo Clinic of Scottsdale AZ where I went through another colonoscopy, endoscopy, transit study, defogram as well as pelvic floor dysfunction tests, I was tested for pylori, gluten intolerance …you name it they tested for it, I saw a rheumatologist, gast
Avatar n tn The recent MRI shows only bulging in the L3-L4 and L4-L5 region and he is in terrible pain radiating down into his hip and leg. The symptoms are the same as they were when the disc was herniated before surgery but the doctors don't treat the bulging the same as the herniation but the pain is the same and the schmorl's nodes were mentioned on 2 of the 3 MRI's he has had.
Avatar f tn What MD did you see at the Mayo Clinic? I saw one with whom I was not impressed at the Mayo Clinic in MN. I look forward to reading your thoughts.
220917 tn?1309788081 Even wanted me to go to the Mayo Clinic if I couldn't get help in Detroit. The endo typed all this in the program. SO....we talked about what my neuro found. Or, rather I talked. I told him I had hyper reflexes, increased muscle tone in all four limbs, Babinski's response in at least my right foot, and severe weakness in my legs, moderate weakness in my arms. I told him my NCV/EMG was normal, my PET scan was normal and I'd had normal MRIs. My blood work had always been normal.
Avatar f tn covers a full range of of problems, from nerve misfirings and erratic sensory signals that cause tingling and pain AND hypersensitivity to touch, to outright numbness on the other, like Sandy's experiencing. As I recall the Mayo clinic has a decent page or two on it at its site.
Avatar n tn My family doctor sent me to several specialists - at the Mayo Clinic, they know what they are doing - without anyone finding a cure. When the problem continued my doctor sent me through specialists again and this time a doctor who specialized in sports medicine diagnosed the problem as an imbalance of leg muscles creating an strain on the position of my knee cap.
Avatar f tn Were your symptoms consistently there, or would you consider them attacks that come and are then gone 5 minutes later? Thanks!
4226456 tn?1354123528 PMR responds to steroids (Prednisone) in as quickly as 24 hours as a diagnostic tool and then long term use. The Mayo Clinic is just one source of info, you may want to take a look: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/polymyalgia-rheumatica/DS00441 I have a slightly elevated ana, but arthritis was ruled out and the Prednisone worked like a miracle; however, I won't continue to take it due to its horrible possible side effects.
147426 tn?1317269232 He helped all he could and kept my pain medicine perscribed for me. I called Mayo Clinic and they set me up an appointment and told me not to worry about no insurance that they would work out a payment plan. When we got there it was just the opposite. We had to borrow about $12,000.00 or more to pay for the test. We also had to pick and choose which test where most important because we could'nt afford all of them. To make it short we left there with no diagnosis and no money.
Avatar n tn I have bulging discs and osteoarthritis and the avascular necrosis. The hip pain has been the worst of what I have experienced. The Dr's tell me having my hips replaced will cure most of the pain. I am now bone on bone , no cartiledge with cysts. I am just worried I have waited too long as now I have lost my muscle tone am not able to exercise at all now, sleeping more than an hour or so at a time is not possible most nights. My legs have a weird feeling now are numb and my feet and tingle.
Avatar f tn Cervical Spondylosis was what I was diagnosed with. I got a lot of info from WebMD, Mayo Clinic, and several other reputable websites. I hope this info is helpful. By the way, after the 2nd surgery I was eating baked for lunch that day!! NO problems with swallowing.
Avatar n tn 6 yrs later im in no better position. However, im on a waiting list to get into the famous Mayo Clinic. Finally someone has taken an interest in my case. Doctors r stumped. Most want to say i have internal shingles.or post shingles nerve pain. I've never had a rash or blisters or anything other than the burning skin and very sunburn like sensitivity and stabbing nerve pain in the muscles around my waist. Im praying for all of you. Good luck and will post again after Mayo.
Avatar n tn I've since June 14th, 2008 have been in Rochester, MN. I'm being seen now daily at the Mayo Clinic. Everyone is wonderful. But, since day one I've been complaining about a titanium allergy. My Dad and sister have known allergies to titanium. They look at you like you have 4 heads. They(Dr's.)also tell you becasue these (Titanium)allergies are not really documented. They really don't know what to do. Well, thank God I ran into this lady allergist here.
Avatar n tn Good luck, everyone, and hang in there! And if you have bad pain, think about going to a pain clinic. they can help you much better than your doctor can (especially if he's not sure you're not crazy).
522415 tn?1242941355 Has u'r regular dr. ordered any specific labs; like SED RATE, Growth Hormone etc.?? If they did & then sent u 2 a fibro clinic u could find out EXACTLY what's going on w/ ya. I'm sorry u'r having a hard time coping. :( I feel for ya sista. We all have bad days & some good. Hopefully, today is a good day for u. I TRY to FOCUS on the fact that @ least i'm NOT wheelchair bound. Or that i could be legless or have 1 arm or something. I guess i'm just trying to say....
Avatar n tn I went to 4 neurosurgeons for evaluation (including the Mayo Clinic) before deciding to go with the surgeon I did....and am I ever glad now, considering what many of you have gone through with anterior surgeries and fusions. The neuro I chose told me that her procedure was the "safest" one for my circumstances - they make an opening on one side of the lamina and tack it back, like an open door...which preserves stability while allowing the spinal cord more room.
Avatar n tn I do have anticardiolipin/antiphospholipid syndrome (I take an aspirin a day for that) and recently my ANA came back positive (was always negative), but the doctors at the Mayo clinic didn't think that mattered because it was only slightly elevated. I asked the nurse at the Mayo clinic why I would be B12 and Vitamin D deficient and she said that a lot of people of Vitamin D deficient. I'm waiting on the doctor's recommendation for the Mayo Clinic...should be getting that any day...
975514 tn?1325001538 I was 17 when I first was diagnosed with sciatica and it wasn't until I was 31 when my foot was completely numb that I was able to convince a doctor to take an X-Ray of my lower back, which started a domino effect of MRIs and testing. I learned that I have degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis in my spine, minor scoliosis and nerve damage- I even had a shoulder surgery on a bone spur because I kept getting tendinitis and the doctors couldn't cure my arm pain.
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 - In terms of treatment, I've seen two orthopedic surgeons, two chiropractors, PT clinic, exercise physiologists. I get a lot of assumptions that I'm talking about a lower back problem/sciatica which is complete wrong. I did have sciatica which a little bit of PT cleared up. - I've been on NSAIDs (ibuprofen and naproxen), muscle relaxers, antibiotics, neurontin, percocet, vicodin.
Avatar n tn I doubt this is related, but I have some sort of muscle strain in my hip/groin area that is possible due to an intense backpacking trip in October. Any feedback appreciated. Guess I could consult dr. after Xmas if still going on . . . but it's vague and one of those deals like when your car won't act up for the mechanic.
Avatar n tn Quickly realizing normal wasn't possible anymore with the constant dizziness, floating feeling, balance issues and difficulty sleeping and swallowing, I realized I need a better answer than this. I live in St. Cloud MN, and am on a waiting list to be seen at the Mayo clinic with a specialist. I was just wondering if anyone knows of a good doctor around here. I am hesitant of the surgery as I have seen from many the continued or worsening of symptoms, but I want to discuss my options.
1216899 tn?1288573925 -Joints in my feet and legs were very painful, making it very hard to walk up and down stairs -Constant buzzing sensation on the souls of my feet now -Feeling of bugs crawling up my legs all the time -Sharp stabbing pains, like I'm being jabbed with a spike or very large needle -Burning sensation, mostly on the souls of my feet, but sometimes anywhere on my legs -Right leg, twice before, has had weird hot, electrical type sensation, almost felt like my skin on my leg was wrapped tightly with a
