osteoarthritis

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.
1522912 tn?1292053850 A repeat dopplar study of the involved leg should be done to rule out inflammation of veins, lymphatics and clots in veins. A MRI of the inflamed area should be done.
Avatar m tn Below is a list 18 non-drug treatments for pain. These options provide excellent pain relief without any of the health hazards that prescription (and even over-the-counter) painkillers carry. This list is in no way meant to represent the only approaches one can use. These are just some of the best strategies. If you are in pain, please try these first, before even thinking about prescription painkillers of any kind. Eliminate or radically reduce most grains and sugars from your diet.
1310633 tn?1430227691 Does anyone have any experience with, or heard of, Adequan, Cartrophen or Cortisone shots for the treatment of pain associated with hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, etc, in dogs? My English Mastiff has developed osteoarthritis in her right hind leg, and surgery isn't recommended this late in life, and an alternative to oral treatment (and far more effective from what the vet has told us, although MUCH more expensive), is shot treatment.
Avatar m tn I am sure this is the cause of the damage to my bones. I am getting Botox injections for hip pain related to the DDD/DJD. Will that do any damage? Results L1-4 T scour of -2.6 indicating osteoporosis Left hip T score of 2.8 indicating osteoporosis Right hip T score of 3.1 indicating osteoporosis I was on a viatmin D regime but developed headaches and I asked to be taken off of them. My current vit d levels are up to what they should be. 5.1 I think. My doctor recommends Oscal.
Avatar m tn But an analysis of studies looking at glucosamine or chondroitin for osteoarthritis in the hip or knee did not show that these supplements slow joint destruction or relieve pain. It's kind of gone by the wayside. It was found to not be the wonder supplement it was once thought to be. Multiple studies revealed that they will not help you more than a placebo. However there are still ppl that swear they help them.
2126606 tn?1346348724 It’s very important that hyperalgesia be differentiated from chronic pain so doctors are able to properly treat the problem and lessen pain, without causing or escalating physical dependence. Long-term opiate use can hinder or even stop the body's ability to produce natural endorphins, which is why many patients receive relief from pain once their bodies are able to recover this natural function.
3242225 tn?1348340121 Usually the result of the natural aging process, degenerative disk disease (DDD) is a type of osteoarthritis of the spine. Hepatitis C is related to arthritis but not osteoarthritis which really implies that the joint has worn out with age. http://www.moveforwardpt.com/SymptomsConditionsDetail.aspx?cid=514086b4-1272-4584-8742-ec6d2aa8f8cb#PTHelpPreventFromRecurring http://www.*************.

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!
1652468 tn?1302904098 It is impossible to overcome arthritis in a dehydrated condition. Holistic Arthritis Treatments Many arthritic patients have common food allergies such as dairy and gluten. Also, many arthritic patients need to avoid nightshade plants such as tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant. Nutritional supplementation is important. Most arthritic patients have multiple nutritional deficiencies, including lowered levels of vitamins A, B6, B12, and C. Glucosamine sulfate can help.
748543 tn?1463449675 I went to yoga class for a few years and wore my splint at night off and on for several years, but eventually I stopped each. He did mention that I would have a risk of developing osteoarthritis later in life in my right jaw. Forward on to 2016 and I started to notice my neck and shoulders tightening. I do not know if there is an association but last summer I did fall off a boat and hit my head on a wood dock .....I ended up cracking the 2x4 where my head landed....
Avatar f tn And this is not all in my head because I do have a diagnosed bulging disk and the osteopenia in my spine and hip. I do feel the treatments affect all of our body, immune systems, joint, skeletal muscles, etc. But, on the bright side of things, it also got rid of the Hep C. We will get through this period of time, post TX, and things will improve.
Avatar dr m tn I am a firm believer in Internet Research and being in charge of your own care / direction and not being afraid to say no, or suggest other directions of both diagnostics or treatments. This will be extremely important in the future (God help us) when health care becomes a lumbering tedious gigantic bureaucracy. WE have to learn to search, understand and direct our care!! Power to the Patients!!
Avatar n tn However, I'd like to hear comments from anyone posting on this site about not only Synvisc treatments but other treatments available for treatment of osteoarthritis in the knee joints. My symptoms are more achiness, stiffness, and limited range of motion instead of pain. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have three herniated discs in my spine (2 cervical, 1 lumbosacral) along with osteoarthritis and scoliosis of the spine. I have bursitis of the right hip. I have arthritis in my hands and feet. I have IBD, PCOS and interstial cystitis. Please help.
Avatar n tn info/data/usercontentroot/home/treatments/Post%20Treatment%20Survey.asp Disturbing symptoms that emerge after completing tx are a 'hot' subject on this forum currently. Some will try to claim that these problems cropping up after tx are a 'coincidence', or are due to some sort of rapid aging. Of course those people do not have these symptoms!
Avatar n tn My bonescan scan showed hotspots in SI Joints an right hip i have had steroid injections in si 2 times, right hip joint today,facet joint and a complete nerve ablasion last yr. none of it helped. Anyway the disc protrusion will tell if i need fusion done.
Avatar f tn Besides it would make no difference if my Specialist knew or not they are two separate conditions and require different treatments,if i now have RA I have it there is nothing I can do about that either,I don't see that telling him I have Herpes is going to change things or make any difference to the way I would be treated if I didn't have it. If having HSV2 wasn't such a taboo subject no one would need to hide it,but sadly society isn't going to change in the foreseeable future.
Avatar n tn People with diabetes heal slower for example. use of MSM is a natural anti-inflammatory and has been shown in research to shrink the size of disk herniations. I would also suggest B complex vitamins and use ice at home not heating pads. Disk problems are inflammation. You control inflammation with ice not heat. I have disk herniations and was once basically paralyzed in my left arm due to disk bulging. Disk bulging is seen much like a Schmorl's node.
Avatar n tn Fatigue comes and goes in intensity, but overall awful. Finally, years ago diagnosed w/osteoarthritis in hip. Now experience constant pain in hip, knees, right shoulder and occasionally jaw, wrists, knuckes. Vision seems blurred, even with glasses - tho' usually if I concentrate can focus.
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 n tn My worry is that if I were running for some reason, or just walking at a fast pace -- normal for me -- the weakness in the groin area would cause me to fall suddenly, possibly injuring my hip. I haven't seen any docs about this because it would probably entail endless, very expensive tests, with a possible "no diagnosis" or "ambiguous, multi-opinioned diagnosis." Anyone out there with a clue ... especially about the feeling of extreme weakness when it happens?
Avatar n tn I hobble and my leg muscles are noticibly smaller, to the point friends and family mention it. MRIs of spine, hip and knee show nothing, and steroid epidurals gave minimal relief. I've posted a question to the doctor in hopes he will guide me on how best to "bother" my local doctors in digging deeper for a diagnosis and CURE. If I ever get answers, I'll be sure to let y'all know. In the meantime, keep looking because if we have the same thing, it will only get worse.

Avatar n tn I would of course, look into all of the other non-drug treatments like physical exercise, strengthening, blocks, etc. if you haven't already done that.
4226456 tn?1354123528 Today it is hurting where my inner thigh connects to the hip joint, but the hip joint also seems to pop out all together, only for a couple excruciating seconds, when I first stand up.
Avatar n tn It's dryer, so it's better for my osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia and it's very sunny, so in the winter there is less of a chance of suffering from SAD. Unfortunately, I now live in Milwaukee, WI on the great lakes, so it's humid and overcast much of the time. The winters are cold and the summers are wet. Not good for Fibromyalgia or Arthritis at all!
529159 tn?1224994626 But I was also diagnose with a Vitamin D deficiency, and slight osteoarthritis in the back of my neck and the lower back (my spine). My physical therapist said that sometimes when the nerves pinch out from the lower part of my back it may cause my legs to hurt. And boy do they! Also, as disgusting as this may sound, I find some back relief when I lift my breasts up. I have extremely large breasts and a big stomach. I lift my stomach up and that takes pressure off my back and legs.
Avatar n tn Never such a bad one ever again, but I tell you I was scared to death to ever go through that again. I took only natural herbal remedies and I don't have any more hotflashes (took about 5 - 6 months). I would never take any HRT unless you look up side effects first. You will see all kinds of dangerous side effects which could put a person in worse condition (or major disease, like breast cancer) than they already are in.
