1175033 tn?1492204828 I am 26 and have had joint degeneration in the facets of my cervical spine that has been visible on x-ray since I was 19. I just recently found out about this when I got another x-ray done, and the findings stated it was compared to an x-ray from 2002 which showed degeneration. Why didnt any one tell me? My doctors just said my x-rays were normal, but how can this be normal for someone that was 19 at the time?
1110049 tn?1409405744 Now told I have osteoarthritis in spine. Had no back pain, only the hip pain. Presume this is what is known as referred pain, but I must admit I am bemused. Does glucosamine or any other supplement help with arthritis in spine? I am 69 yrs old, so know it is due to wear and tear.
Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis just about everywhere. I have had bilateral hip replacements, knee replacement, shoulder replacement and stenosis for which I have had back surgery for L4-5, S1, laminectomy and spinal fusion. The stenosis is back in my spine. I have been taken off anything with acetaminophen b/c of the kidney damage. I am in terrible pain and need something that I can take that will not cause more kidney damage.
Avatar m tn My question is whether anyone can tell me if osteoarthritis in the lower spine can cause grabbing, debilitating pain that causes the patient to cry out it is so severe. These pains act like pinched nerves, but MRS and Neurological testing shows no nerve damage from the spine. The regular arthritis pain increases gradually when the patient is walking and prevents walking altogether after about 15 yards. The grabbing pain is additional to the regular pain. The only relief for the pain is sitting.
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.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know what Chronic 20% anterior compression deformity of t11 and t 12 is? I have been dealing with pain in my hip area for a few months now and wondering if this has anything to do with it.
Avatar f tn maybe a car accident, or you hit your hip on a sharp, hard corner or you fell on your hip... it is inflammation of the fluid-filled sac (bursa) that lies between a tendon and skin, or between a tendon and bone... so RA or osteoarthritis can increase your risk of development... I had it on my leg after a car accident and after physical therapy for it I finally got through it... the bursa was absorbed by my body is what the doctor told me... it hurt like fire burns!
Avatar m tn Hi, The symptoms of severe pain that you are experiencing may be due osteoarthritis or degenerative disease of the spine. The treatment of osteoarthritis includes exercise, medications and measures to protect the joints. This includes a teamwork of rheumatologist, physical therapist and orthopedic surgeon. Please consult an orthopaedic surgeon and rheumatologist for treatment and continue the physiotherapy at the same time for the relief of the symptoms. Hope this helps you.
Avatar m tn I meant to add that hip deterioration is often mistaken for pelvic pain because the hip joint angles in toward the groin/pelvis at the top of the thigh bone. If you're having pain in the "leg crease" between your thigh and pelvis, that's your hip joint.
Avatar n tn In my last visit, she pointed out to me that in my c-scan in 2004 I had moderate osteoathritis in my spine and I went for another shoulder and neck xray to see if this could be causing the problems. I am a 44 year old female PE teacher and she felt this had shown up at a young age. I have played many sports and had minor injuries. I will have to wait for the x-ray resullts because I am in a remote area and they read tests once evry 2 weeks or so.
Avatar f tn It is not unusual to have groin or low pelvic pain that is referred from the a joint problem. You may have osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Pain running down the leg can be from the hip or could indicate a structural issue in the spine. Only imaging of the area will provide you with the correct answers. I hope you will make an appointment with your PCP to find a solution to your pain. We will look forward to your updates. Best of luck to you and as always, take care.
Avatar f tn 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. I had to have a THR (Total Hip Replacement) done when I was 35 years old to get the pain taken care of. I've had 2 others since then, over a 30 year period of time. (the first one lasted for 26 years.) But it's my understanding that SI Joint disease can also do this. That's why you need to get it narrowed down.
Avatar n tn - whatever the # it is normal. 1. What exactly are the symptoms of mets to bone (like hip) or spine? 2. Do these symptoms sound like anything related to bc mets or cancer of any kind? Just don't want to pester doc unless these symptoms sound like something that needs to be investigated and I would like the answers to questions 1 and 2 as I'm unclear. Thanks so much.
Avatar n tn I agree with Priddy44 with waiting for labs - definitely have to r/o RA....OA most likely would have shown up on xrays....MRI of hips/sacrum/lower spine would also help...you mentioned you've had the pain for a week but have you ever had it before? Did it come on suddenly without notice or injury or was it gradual? No falls/injuries/over-exertion type activities? I hope you're feeling some relief soon!
Avatar f tn Guess it depends on which nerve is being compromised. Hip Dr. says no problem with implant. Back Dr. says mild disc bulge with osteoarthritis in facet joints in lumbar spine, but not enough to cause this much pain. Tried PT, three sessions about crippled me. Now going to Chiropractor who is doing a combo of adjustments, acupuncture, plant based injections, ultra sound, etc. Still in pain, but hoping this will work.
Avatar n tn I'm a 23 year old female and over the last 3-4 weeks have been getting increasingly bad hip pain. It's in both hips but mostly on the right hand side. There is occasionally some mild lower back pain but not much and it doesn't spread anywhere else. It's not a sharp pain or a constant pain, but more of a constant aching. Sitting here right now typing this it's quite sore, also when I stand up, walk, lay down and move. I can't cross my legs while sitting as this is worse.
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 Extracts of Boswellia Serrata have been clinically studied for osteoarthritis and joint function. Their anti-inflammatory efficiency surpasses prescribed medications. Also Glucosamine/Chondoitin/MSM combination , has a higher efficiency than any prescribed medications after 3 months of supplementation. An anti-Arthritis diet combined with an Alkaline diet may also help. Just look it up. Physical Therapy deserves a second chance.
Avatar m tn This is associated with focal defects in the immediately adjacent articular cartilage of the femoral head and the acetabulum. Impression 1. Osteoarthritis of the right hip characterized by degenerative tearing of the labrum and focal defects in the articular cartilage. 2. The contour of the femoral head and the appearance of the acetabulum on the pelvis x-ray suggests that the patient is likely impinging due to both pincer and CAM type morphology.
405614 tn?1329147714 My sports and spine doc is referring me to another surgeon for a second opinion about my hip; I don't think he thought the arthritis was that bad there yet, and said it was encouraging that the lidocaine and buvipicaine relieved most of my hip pain. Now that more arthritis is developing, it probably would be a good idea to see a rheumatologist again. Thanks for your input.
Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis all throughout my neck/back/hip-I also have Ehlers Danlos which doesn't help. I began having those cortisone/epidural injections in my neck & prayed they'd help. The first one did for over 6mos, the 2nd almost 3mos, & the 3rd did nothing. I saw 3 neurosurgeons & due to having EDS, which is a connective tissue disorder in which basically all of my joints are lax & sublux/dislocate, having a fusion was not an option.
Avatar f tn I started with right hip pain 14 months ago and no one can find what is wrong and everything they do causes more pain . I am to the point now I do not know what to do. I am 62 and originally I lifted something heavy off the counter and carried it to the basement. Thought then it was sciatic and took ibuprofen 800 3 times daily and went to the chiropractor. Nothing helped. Went to an orthopedic and he did an mri and I suggested therapy and wearing a belt. He agreed and I Started therapy.
Avatar m tn Hello Everyone. I want to share my hip problem ordeal with everyone. Each person and each diagnosis is different, but maybe someone out there could benefit from what I have learned from my pain experience. I am a 25 years old male. I have been dealing with hip pain since I was a child on and off. I ran cross country and track in high school. Every season that I could remember, I was plagued by a nagging pain deep in my left buttocks.
Avatar f tn Another cause could be some arthritis of the hip. Once we hit fifty most of us develop Osteoarthritis in some or many of our joints. Our body reacts to the years of wear and tear. As I said earlier, it could also be a structural issue of your spine. The last five individual vertebrae in the spine, also known as the lumbar region of the back (the L1-L5 region) is where our spine is most flexible.
Avatar m tn I have left hip pain that comes for about a week at a time and then disappears for months. Sometimes the pain is not so bad during these 'episodes' and others its unbearable. My hip will hurt and then it goes down the back of my leg all the way to the knee, and sometimes my lower back on the left side will hurt as well, not exactly where the spine is but... I was just wondering if anyone knew what this was caused from? Haven't been able to find any answers. Thanks so much for your time!
Avatar m tn X-rays showed degeneration of both hips. I also have degeneration in the lower spine and in the neck. and osteoarthritis in both knees, but my right leg is worst. Osteoarthritis in other joints too (fingers and feet). The more I stand and walk about the worse it gets. I also get the pain in the lower belly as if things are pulling down. The pain radiates down through both legs. Doc says this is reffered pain from my back.
5692606 tn?1372495303 Hello. I was diagnosed with Osteo Arthritis and Degenerative Lumbar Spine Disease some 10 - 12 years ago which affects mostly my back, hips and shoulders but also my knees and neck and as time has gone by the pain has become increasingly worse. Recently an x-ray to my lumbar spine revealed this: Minor reduction of the L1 and L2 on the behalf of the superior endplates anteriorly. Presence of transitional lumbar vertebra (L6). Presence of marginal osteophytes. Narrowing of the disc space.
Avatar n tn Hello Dear, How old are you? Has there been a previous surgery? Congenital hip dysplasia is due to the abnormal hip joint socket articulation. The harness is recommended for minimizing the impact of the problems and the subsequent symptoms. Less mobility or flexibility on one side is a typical feature of Congenital hip dysplasia. Chronic abnormality at the joint would lead to undue pressure and prone for osteoarthritis. Surgery is unlikely of any great help.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been having symptoms for the last month and a half and they seem to be getting worse. I have hip pain with shooting pains groin pains with shooting pains and a bad backache moreso on the left side. Years ago I was diagnosed with Fibro, but for about 30 years not much going on then I got a real bad virus along with some tradgedy and had a bad headache for 3 months with shooting pains off the top of my head.
Avatar m tn Over a week ago I started noticing intense pain in my right shoulder near my spine. With my should on top of my hip pain making it almost impossible to stay in the same position for too long. My doctor that worked on my back was always baffled as to why I had hip pain and suggested that I get a second opinion from a hip specialist. Since he recently retired it's kind of hard to build the same kind of trust I had with him in a totally new doctor unfamiliar with my situation.
