Avatar n tn Bilateral mastectomy 18 months ago (at age 47) with reconstruction - saline implants. Invasive lobular cancer in left breast, extensive LCIS in right breast. No lymph node involvement - no chemo - no radiation - no additional treatment. Now experiencing hip, knee and shoulder joint pain. Any chance of rheumatiod arthritis from silicone in implant casing? Or is this normal perimenopause pain? Any way to tell the difference?
Avatar f tn Tendonitis or bursitis of the joint too produces similar symptoms. Osteoarthritis too is a possibility but less likely at your age, unless there is a hormonal problem like low estrogen. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn I completely changed my diet prior to seeing the first rheumatologist, and the joint pain got better. 8 months later, my joint pain is not much of a problem (although I can still feel pain). The real problem now is the excessive popping in my wrists, shoulders, and jaw. Just as the joint pain did, the popping started in my wrists, eventually moved to my shoulders, and is now in my jaw as well. I cannot do much of anything without the popping.

Avatar n tn Well, if you have discoid lupus then yes, you can also have joint involvement due to lupus. However, if there is pain in only one ankle joint then this can also be due to lupus neuropathy, osteoarthritis, gout, bursitis, tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis etc. It is important to consult your rheumatologist and get this investigated. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Apart from fibromyalgia multiple joint pain is seen in hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hasimotos thyroiditis, gout (can sometimes cause multiple joint pain), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE, electrolyte disturbance particularly those involving calcium and magnesium, parathyroid gland problems, chondrocalcinosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Avatar n tn This could be due to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, synovial membrane irritation etc. All of these except osteoarthritis basically result in involvement of small joints. Please discuss this with your doctor (preferably an orthopedic specialist) and get yourself investigated accordingly. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Both can cause symmetrical joint involvement. The treatment is rest, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory such as Tylenol, Aleve or Mobic. Take care!

Avatar n tn I don't know as why the other medicine was not advised. Also gout affects toes also, but in your case it's the knee joint involvement. So i would suggest you to get the following blood reports done - 1) Sr Uric Acid. 2) RA factor. 3) ASO titre. 4) ESR. 5) Sr CCP Once done, kindly post it as a fresh one and let me know,s o that i can know whether its reaction to Gout or another form of inflammatory arthritis.
Avatar n tn I'm having constant muscle pain in my upper arms causing me to be very weak and limiting my movement. At first I thought it might be joint pain, maybe arthritis but over the last several months the pain has moved from my shoulders down through my upper arms. What might this be and is there a remedy?

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.
Avatar n tn I have CHF, cardiomyopathy, MVP, diabetes, hypothryodism, osteoarthritis, neuropathy. I am experiencing a new pain in my right leg where the neuropathy is the worst. I have one spot on the side of my lower leg that is constant pain. I can not get it relieved no matter what I do. Usually it hurts when I stand or walk for a few minutes. I have to sit down to get it relieved, but since yesterday, I can't get it relieved. I take Neurotin.

Avatar f tn I am a 20 year old female college student who is fairly healthy and exercises regularly (3-4 times per week). For 1 month I have been experiencing pain in my left knee. The pain occurs mostly above the knee cap and slightly along both sides. I have never had any knee injuries nor do I remember injuring it prior to when the pain began. I made a doctor's appt for February 22nd but it seems to be getting worse and i'm not sure if I will be able to handle the pain.
Avatar f tn My suspicions: Chronic Insufficient thyroid regulation-perhaps relying too much on Labs (flawed tests) and possible interference with Adrenal stress (due to ongoing biological and external stress) which must be corrected first, before thyroid function can be restored (secondary hypothyroidism in addition to hashi's possibly) Low vitamin D3 or vitamin D3 resistance - low K2 and other deficiencies In relation to this: Is your hyperparathyroidism primary or secondary and is it being treated succ
Avatar n tn ***X-RAYS*** C-Spine: Mild uncinate joint osteoarthritis. Cervical spine shows loss of normal lordosis with a slight kyphotic angulation at the C2/3 level. Cervical vertebral bodies shoe neither anterior wedging nor collapse. Cervical intervertebral disc spaces at C2/3 to C5/6 show narrowing. Left Shoulder Joint: Mild glenohumeral and acromioclavicular joint osteoarthritis. Acromion process shows Type II morphology with anterior acromial spur formation.

The treatment is supportive.
Avatar f tn arthritis of big joints (you have hip joint involvement—popping or clicking sound indicates arthritis); arthritis of spinal joints-you have intense back ache on lying down; and arthritis of spine with deformity, inflammation of heart, lung and eyes. The last form is a rare form. Arthritis may begin before the actual symptoms due to simultaneous inflammation of gut and joints or it may develop later. Treating the bowel symptoms of Crohn’s disease will treat arthritis like symptoms too.
Avatar n tn Do you feel radiation of pain to your fourth and fifth digits? Is there swelling in elbow joint also? Have you noticed any weight loss or systemic symptoms, such as flushing or fever? Do you ever experience any locking or clicking in your elbow? Have you taken anything for the pain, and has it helped? Is there any grating when you move your elbow? I think an imaging study of involved elbow joints will help in coming closer to diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Fever, pain, and decreased range of motion in the sacroiliac joint are the most common symptoms. Sometimes the sacroiliac joint pain can be mistakenly attributed to another source, such as septic hip, psoas abscess, malignancy, sciatica, herniated disc, pyelonephritis, ankylosing spondylitis or appendicitis. Characteristic radiographic features include joint space narrowing, sclerosis, and erosions of the ilium and sacrum.
Avatar m tn The symptoms appear to be due to multiple joint involvement including joints of spine and limbs. You need a comprehensive investigation regarding this as it is difficult to pin point a cause.
Avatar n tn Some conditions that could also present with pain at the knee region include osteoarthritis, bursitis, infections, joint injury, etc. It would indeed be advisable to consult a physician as soon as possible to evaluate your symptoms and manage your condition. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Osteoarthritis, Ligament damage, Meniscus damage or Patello-femoral disorder. Keep me informed. Bye.
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!
Avatar n tn MS is usually tested by an MRI. I sincerely doubt it's lupus because you don't mention any real joint involvement. Usually you have hands, elbows and/or knees that are hot, red and swollen if it's lupus. Do you know much about Fibromyalgia? Your symptoms sound alot like Fibro to me. Only a skilled Rheumatolagist can properly diagnose the 11 of 18 tender points, and I wouldn't go back to the individual you saw the first time as "he" may not be a believer in the condition.
