Osteoarthritis in hip

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis in hip


Avatar f tn Happy Friday! I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left hip. A hip replacement is inevitable, but I hope to manage the pain (which has been getting worse this year) for a while, before facing surgery. I got my first infection on October 1 (16 days ago), hoping for some relief for my daughter's wedding that was on October 10. I regret to say that, so far, I am not feeling much relief at all.
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?
Avatar f tn But he recently had a second x ray and his right hip is badly damaged so he will possibly need a hip replacement in the near future (he had the first x ray 5 years ago). He basically has Osteoarthritis. But since last Wednesday he's been in alot of pain. But the problem is with his left hip rather than his right, he cannot understand it. He's been off work in agony, he's got pain in his left hip, buttocks, thighs, knee's and shins, basically what appears like Osteo in his left hip.
Avatar f tn I don't know much about knee implants, but implant technology in general, is moving in leaps and bounds. Do some major research. 5 weeks ago I had both my hips replaced, I was out picking tomatoes today and walked a few miles...I'm only 51, but finally hit my "breaking point"..also tried all the narco drugs you mentioned (hydromorphone worked best for me, by the way)...but in the end, decided I had to have surgery or life would lose it's fun for me...
1378884 tn?1315509445 Over the three years before I had the other hip replaced, I developed problems in my left foot, opposite knee, and lower back. Having said that, RA can have many different triggers. A common infection can trigger the immune system to start attacking the body - no one knows why. Stress or an injury, basically anything that prompts an immune system response can potentially trigger RA or another autoimmune disease. It can run in families, or appear apparently out of nowhere.
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 n tn He sent for a course of Physiotherapy which I attended for 6months. In the end I stopped going because after the initial mild improvement in pain there was no further improvement. I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily. Despite this the symptoms have now spread to my right hip, right shoulder and slight symptoms in my right knee. I get some relief from taking 400mg of Ibuprofen at night so I can sleep.
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.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I have taken ibuprofen for weeks at a time in the past for the osteoarthritis in my jaws. I try to take it sparingly for it now. But I get frequent heartburn and was recently put on cytotec generic, which is supposed to help with stomach lining. I have tried acupuncture, which I thought helped some, herbal heat pack, ice, valium, ibuprofen and wear a flat-planed splint for my jaw osteoarthritis.
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 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 f tn I would say the osteo led to bursitis - they often go hand in hand. Inflammation in the hip joint can, in turn, irritate the surrounding nerves, which could be causing the burning sensation down the front of your thighs. Speaking of hands (sorry!) try sleeping with a wrist brace or other device that prevents you from curling/clenching your hands while you sleep.
Avatar f tn When you say "hip bone", do mean the bony protrusion on each side of the front of your pelvis? This isn't actually the hip joint, it's the bony arch of your pelvis. The hip joint is located on the inside crease of your groin, where your thigh meets your pelvis. The thigh bone comes up then at the top makes a sharp turn toward the midline of your body. If you feel like there's pain in your "leg crease" or groin, that's the hip joint. anyplace else...isn't.
Avatar n tn Everyone develops arthritis as they age. Being overweight definitely puts more stress on your hip joints, but there are strengthening exercises that can be done. A chiropractor might be able to help as well. Sometimes hip pain can be a symptom of lower back problems. Hope you get your answers.
673877 tn?1225995294 Can you define "bad hip" in a bit more detail? Does your rottie have osteoarthritis or hip displaysia? In either case, I would go with rimadyl or deramaxx as an anti-inflammatory/ pain relief medication. For any joint issues, MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin can help the soft tissues of joints stay healthy longer. These substances won't repair already damaged tissues, but can keep them going longer. Have a talk with your vet about dosages for your rottie.
Avatar m tn For the past few months I have had a sharp pain in my left hip. feels like it is in the joint. But feels muscular. I noticed the pain when sitting down, would lift left leg up to tie my shoe. Pain was mostly on the outside of the hip joint. Never feel pain while walking or biking but have started feeling increased pain while running. One day it feels fine and then another day if aggravated just right, I feel the pain. Probably an 8-10 on the pain scale.
1958417 tn?1325114532 An old clip left would now have become impacted and exploring would cause significant blood loss. There may be early osteoarthritis changes in the joint causing pain and stiffness. Painkillers may help; intraarticular injection of steroids may be tried. Consult an orthopaedician, preferably the same surgeon who did the previous surgery. Hope this helps. You are welcome to seek any further clarifications. Take care.
Avatar m tn I am a 31 year old male that was diagnosed with Hip Osteoarthritis about a year ago after 7/8 years of groin pain! I have just come out of hospital after having a Hip Arthroscopy done to which they removed loose debris and bone spurs as well as drilling holes in the top of the ball section to promote new cartlidge growth. What they wouldn't tell me is after having this operation, how much time will this operation buy me before need ing a Hip resurface or a total hip replacement?
Avatar n tn Seem to not bother me so much then, but for at least a year now I have experienced shooting pains in that same hip, expecially when I am laying down for the night. I can't sit very long without discomfort..I take walks everyday and try to stay active. Walking doesn't hurt the hip, but if I make a sudden change in my turns I feel a catch...Recently I have noticed that my right thigh has had pain also..I am hoping and praying that it is not Osteoarthritis. Kindof scared to go to a physician.
Avatar f tn I am only 34 and have stage 2 arthritis in my left hip. The doctor said I will need a hip replacement in 5 to 7 years. In the meantime I am in terrible pain but can't take nsaids or narcotics. I do take Flexeril. Does anyone have anything they take or do that would help? Also I would love to hear from some of the younger people as it seems rare. Suggestions from all ages would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn had an arthrogram, contrast omnpaque and injection of synvisc1 in my hip this past monday ... still in lots of pain, have crunching in joints and leg sometimes feels like it is giong to come out of socket ... is this to be expected?
Avatar f tn 14 Months ago I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in both knees and Buritis in my hips. It came on suddenly and it is very painful. I have seen 2 specialists and have had 2 lots of steroid injections in both knees and one steroid injection in my right hip. I have been taking Meloxicam and painkillers. Today I have been to see a specialist with the view to having knee replacement surgery. After looking at my recent x rays he has informed me that I have Avascular Necrosis in both knees.
Avatar m tn I started experiencing pain in the soft tissue of my right hip. I returned to my orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis. Xrays confirmed the hip was good, to be sure a bone scan was ordered, it also showed that everything appeared normal. I was referred to a pain management clinic, where I received a trigger injection into the soft tissue, no help. I then was given a diagnostic local nerve block of my L1 and L2, still no help.
Avatar m tn I am a 57 year old female who also have been diagnosed with no cartilage in my right hip joint. Have been in pain for quite some time. Surgery has been suggested to me as well however my doctor has me on celebrex for the arthritus and also tylenol arthritic medication pain killers. I have heard that over a long period of time celebrex may not be good for you however in the interim until you decide it may give you some help.
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.
