Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis hip pictures

osteoarthritis

Avatar n tn I have chronic back issues and osteoarthritis in my right hip. This morning after my shower I noticed bruising all along my lower back, where I usually have pain. What does this mean?
450140 tn?1317950904 They are not necessarily related. I have osteoarthritis in my hips, more accurately in my hip. My left hip is now made of chromium so there's little chance of arthritis there :-) I couldn't walk 50 feet without some serious pain before having my left hip replace 3 years ago. While I had not been dx'd with MS at that point I certainly had it. The deterioration of my hip had nothing to do with my MS.
Avatar f tn Subsets of Osteoarthritis Primary osteoarthritis is characterized by joint pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and weakness. Primary osteoarthritis is also referred to as idiopathic, meaning, there is no known underlying or predisposing cause. Primary osteoarthritis is recognized as the most common form of osteoarthritis. Secondary osteoarthritis has an underlying or predisposing cause.
488264 tn?1226523907 They did the whole pelvis, but as this clinic is a pre-surgical clinic for potential hip and knee replacement patients the whole picture was not assessed, just the parts relevant to them. It was clear from my first seeing them some two years ago that I was nowhere near needing a hip replacement, but that is their only criteria for seeing me.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms of grinding, popping and stiffness indeed suggest that you are having osteoarthritis. Any grinding is characteristic of osteoarthritis; locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries and osteochondritis dissecans (meniscus injuries are much more common than osteochondritis dissecans); and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries.
Avatar f tn For the past month or so I've been having a major issue with my right hip and lower back (mostly the hip) - it began with pain in the groin/inside hip area and has now totally encompassed the entire hip and does also affect the lower back (although not all the time). the best way I can describe the pain is like a horrible, horrible toothache that does not go away. it also radiates down my leg into my knee and sometimes all the way down my leg with some shooting/burning pains into my foot.
Avatar f tn The funny thing is that I have spent the last 4 months or so on-line looking up dermatological dz photo's to try to identify mine and never even saw HS!! You suggest it, I looked it up and voila! Pictures look quite a bit familiar, esp the scarring ones, although mine occur singularly so far, thank God! Hopefully, they will not progress to that twisted, burn damaged skin look! Also, the androgen dyfunction fits as well. Maybe that is why antidepressants are NOT working very well!
Avatar f tn Tuck, as you all know, is a VERY accomplished Photographer and I was PRIVILEGED to see the MAGNIFICENT pictures that she has taken and Framed and hung on her walls. She could EASILY be a PROFESSIONAL Photographer and sell her Lovely Pictures in some of the quaint little shops that line Mexico Beach!! The first evening I was there, Tuck and her Husband and Friends took us to A BEAUTIFUL Restaurant in Mexico Beach where we could see the Sunset on the Gulf.
1773941 tn?1331680359 The lesions are a little different, and you would exhibit flu-like symptoms. Here's a website with pictures of different kinds of lesions - it's great when you don't know what you're looking at. http://www.radiologyassistant.
Avatar n tn Thanks again for the information you provided in response to my first post on 09/01/06. I have posted the pictures from the 2005 MRI on the net. You can view them, if you wish, at: http://new.photos.yahoo.com/kwujek1/albums When you double-click the individual pictures, a larger version comes up and the viewer can add comments. Since I posted the first time, I have seen both my primary care doctor and a local neurologist. I had appointments with both of them the same week.
Avatar n tn They cut me from hip to hip to remove my right ovary and a large, benign (thank God) ovarian tumor. The surgeon discovered I had lots of abdominal adhesions from previous surgeries; right fallopian tube removed with major surgery, gallbladder out with laproscope, laproscope to remove adhesions for infertility. When I awoke from the ovarian surgery my legs were badly swollen and wrapped with a pump to help with the swelling and circulation I guess.
176803 tn?1198543198 That is the procedure where they shoot dye into your spine and take pictures to watch the contrast (dye) and how it flows (the procedure does not hurt). Next they will send you into another room to have an CT scan to get films of your spine "lit up" so they can see if there is compression somewhere other than the area where they did the laminectomy. In my case, the dye stopped dead at the bottom of my spine (It is supposed to run down your legs).
1069888 tn?1421940341 that you want an MRI on a 3 tesla machine to get better pictures and there is a dr. at Johns Hopkins University in MD that will review your disks for free. He is top notch and will email or call you with his suggestions. His name is George Jallo. Many people have travelled to have him do the surgery on the tumors. Don't let just anyone try to remove these. They must have the proper equipment to monitor your nerves while they work. You can post here or you can Private message me.
Avatar f tn I still do have some discomfort but compared to the pain I had before the surgeries I am much better. My joints were completely fused from osteoarthritis and when the toe would get forced to bend little bony pieces would break off and add to my discomfort. The surgery enabled my joints to move freely again and the Podiatrist was able to clean out all the bone chips. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn Have been taking tramadol for about 4 months and have lost about 25-30 pounds. Been eating like a horse, trying to gain weight, but not working. Going to have a hip replacement in 4 days and am concerned about going through the surgery with all the weight loose. Any suggestion?
Avatar f tn It could have been the tx rounds, but I would not rule out a spinal/back/hip issue. You could be dealing with more than one cause. It could also be the txing punched up a problem in those areas. the osteopenia is what makes me suspicious something is up in those areas. It can be hard to figure out and identify. I know all the meds help some, but they don't "fix" it and Im sure that is frustrating for you too.
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 Said something probably going on in brain. Someone else got the same story and had hip replacement a couple months later. So hes a idiot. Every doctor has prescribed me Neurontin or Amitriptilyne. I dont believe in medicene and masking problems. I know its not in my head. I wish there were more DemiGuises out there as doctors. Not doing Dr's anymore.
Avatar f tn If you follow this and your doctor is very good with his hands, your neck should end up looking just as long (or short) as it was before the surgery so TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR NECK with a ruler beside your neck. I am very serious about this because so many women complain that their neck "doesn't look as good as pre-surgery." For the first 2 weeks after cervical fusion, you must sleep sitting up, this is a must!
Avatar n tn I was out of commission for quite a while with each one. The first operation they took bone from my hip to fuse my spine, the second time they removed all of the old fusion and put in the 8 screws and 2 rods. My decision is: is this allergy bad enough for me to go through another operation on my spine? I can't seem to come up with a answer, so in the mean time I do nothing. Best of luck to you and your wife.
Avatar n tn Just dropped in after kicking about 5 or 6 months ago. I started on tramadol for osteoarthritis pain and was on trammies for approx. 18 months before I wanted my life back. I was at 14 -20 pills a day (700 -1000 mg.) just to be "normal" and was going to 3 different docs to obtain that amount.
147426 tn?1317269232 I saw my internist who noted pathologically hyperactive reflexes on both knees and ankles, weakness of the R hip flexors and referred me to the neurologist I had seen before for migraines. The neurologist who I already knew thought I was a crock, examined me and found mild extensor spasticity in my right leg - mainly at the hip. He sent me for an MRI w and w/o contrast of my brain and spine. Next visit he said the MRI's were completely normal.
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 I do know that if you have Genital Herpes, and you accidentally hit a part of your body, usually the legs, or hip area, that this can actually cause a genital herpes outbreak. I have genital herpes, but have only had 2 or 3 outbreaks in my life. I am in my mid 60s now. I first experienced herpes when I was in my early 20s. One time I did bang myself on something, and sure enough it generated this sensitive burning skin sensation and I got a Herpes outbreak.
Avatar n tn Im been testet and teastet by the doctors, but im perfectly healthy if you can put it that way. A few years ago i was in an accedent where i destroied my hip. It was very very stressful as i lost my job and all. 3month ago i broke up with my boyfriend and he moved out. Bla bla bla, but all this coust stress and hormon differences. The docters say i suffer from servere stress and they say it normal that your hair fall out 2-3 month after the "thing" that coust the stress.
