Avatar f tn The end of May I started having pain and contacted my doctor, I was not able to get in for 3 weeks and the pain increased and had extreme sciatic pain running from my hip to the bottom of foot on both sides. I have done everything possible, over the counter drugs, exercising in pool, massage therapy, physical therapy, accupuncture, pain shots, perscription Motrin 800mg, Vicodin 7.5-750, Hydrocodone/APAP 5/500, with very little relief. I received the second series of Supartz almost 1 1/2 mos.

It throws off your gait and your spinal alignment, causing pain and stress in other parts of your body. Ask for a referral to a pain management specialist. These lovely people are willing to try a wide variety of methods to help you with your pain, which your doctor may be unaware of or reluctant to try.
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm an extremely active 26 year old male, and I recently had my fourth knee surgery (third on left knee). The prior surgeries had all been to my medial mensicus, and this fourth surgery was to remove a condral defect I had on the left knee. My doctor told me he saw some roughing of the cartilege. Subsequently, the worst of my pain is gone and my strength is very good, but I still experience fairly considerable pain when most of my weight is on one leg and I bend.
Avatar n tn It worked beautifully, until the tech had me running on a treadmill, doing lunges and using tension bands while sidestepping and walking backwards. Everyone else in the PT room was getting ultrasound or icing, meanwhile I felt like I was at a crossfit class. Ever since the active PT I've been having more hip pain as well as aches/cramps down my thigh and around my knee (which also has arthritis). Should I be worried about this? Is it normal?
Avatar f tn He said my knee is very very bad and, at 12 weeks post-op, we'll be gearing up for my second, and much more invasive, surgery. I have many areas of exposed bone but, because of my age, my surgeon will not consider a knee replacement. I am in a severe amount of pain daily. I had been taking norco since the surgery but am going to try a break from those. I have been researching ways I can deal with this pain and think I may try acupuncture.
Avatar m tn I fear it could be a running injury, as I picked up running around the same time, however I stopped running like 2 months ago and I figured it would have healed by now if it was related. Another very odd thing is during my work week (I work 12 hour shifts in manual labor where I am on my feet) my knee will not bother me. It bothers me on my off days when I am not doing as much physical stuff.
Avatar f tn Stopped running due to sharp pain on the inside below my knee. Started walking instead. Now 5 years later knee pain again. Went to an Ortho for exam and xrays. Nothing showed. The Dr wanted to do a MRI but my schedule did not allow at the time. Now 2 months later the pain begins if I walk a few blocks. The pain seems to be all around the joint and builds the longer I walk. Yesterday after a short walk the pain was enough to make me sit down.
Avatar m tn The outside of my left knee (the left side) clicks whenever I'm bearing weight on it and I bend it more than about 45 degrees. When I touch it, what feels like a bone just above and to the left of the kneecap pops out a little bit. My right knee (which is fine) does something similar but much more subtle and I can't feel it unless I'm actually touching it. I'm not really experiencing pain, but whenever a do a lot of exercise my left knee gets a bit sore or more sore than my right.
Avatar m tn Sorry for the detail, but maybe it will help you understand in answering the question as to what area of the knee may be injured, or if not injured, then what is going on? : I was in an accident which caused my knee to grind, and become painful as I went up and downsteps, in which I could have tolerated if knew how much worse I would feel after physical therapy.
Avatar f tn I have been running on and off for about 3 years, but very regularly for the last year. I struggle with pretty bad joint pain in my knees, ankles, and hips from running, and also wrist pain regularly also. I have resigned that I will just have this pain and need to manage it with ibuprofen. In the last three months I have however been having a new more severe pain in my left knee. It hurts pretty much constantly, but worse during physical activity, and hurts like a bruise when pushed on.
Avatar n tn The doc said the tendons, or ligaments (I can't remember which) are too weak (due to the fact that my knee are still growing) to keep the knee cap from sliding over to far and causing inflammation and swelling in the knee. So, it would be great if someone knows what is wrong and what it is called. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Get your knee ligaments checked along with quadriceps and hamstrings. The 6 knee ligaments which might get affected are the menisci, collaterals and cruciate ligaments. If you have chronic knee pain in both of your legs then rule out osteoarthritis or other joint problems like Rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic diseases. Go for an X-ray and follow up with an orthopedician for a proper diagnosis. Take care!
587778 tn?1261400718 A few minutes ago, I laid on my left side and proceeded to bend my right knee and the clicking and popping was very audible and painful. I know that swelling and pain accompanies osteoarthritis, but the doctor said that it was mild and that I can continue to exercise (Cycling). It does not matter if I am standing, sitting, walking, or lying down, I am in pain constantly for the last week. I am wondering if I have re-injured my knee or is this how mild osteoarthritis feels?
11446628 tn?1418302080 I also have pain in my knee and hands, and my fingers are twisting and have knots. My right knee has had pain and swelling for weeks, and this morning it's too painful to walk. I haven't injured it. Recent blood test didn't report rheumatoid arthritis. So what's going on with my knee, and with my hands?
Avatar n tn This first happened 6 years ago while running and I overextended it. A quick sharp pain and inability to flex the leg without it throbbing. Pain now is dull, but sharpens as I apply sudden movement. Never had any surgeries and have no other current pain in the leg.
Avatar f tn I am a female 70 years old with a severe osteoarthritic changes of the right knee joint and to a lesser extent in the left knee joint . I am still walking on both knees without any aids but I experience pain in both knees especially the right one . My doctor prescribed me dolophen tablets for one month because the gelatinous material in right knee is nearly absent and he is saying that after that period he will inject orthovisc injection if there was no response to oral medication.
Avatar n tn Surgical options are reserved for persistent or severe symptoms and include arthroscopy, osteotomy, and total knee replacement. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar f tn Although the pain doesn't show up when I poke or touch my knee, I can duplicate the pain when my knee is slightly bent and I press below the knee cap and rub to the painward side while still pressing. I almost thought it was a chipped bone at first, but now (because of the above) I think it is a collection of fluid and the pain is from the fluid trying to migrate to an area of muscle or tissue that doesn't want to separate. Some of you may be aware of how powerful hydraulic pressure can be.
Avatar f tn If I were sixty I would feel different. I want to hike and climb mountains again. I have given up on the running and down hill sking, but if I can't enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors it will kill me. PLEASE HELP!!!
Avatar m tn So I avoid folding my left feet fully. I can walk and run well (though now a days I avoid running and do so carefully, not too fast). Also most of the time I use knee cap too. I shown this to orthopedic. He concluded it as medial tissue swelling (if I read his hand writting correctly). In prescribed Signoflam tablet (http://www.khemist.in/signoflam-500mg-tablet.html) and RANTAC 150 (http://retailpharmaindia.com/product/rantac-150-tablet-30-tabs/). And an oil.
16237877 tn?1446548435 I love doing squats but, for about a year and half, i have not been able to perform this exercise because my left knee hurts. Each time I try to squat, there's a clicking sound in my left knee and, it hurts bad. As a result, even when I try, my right leg carries all the weight and, i don't feel the impact of the exercise on my quads. What can i do to remedy this situation or, how can i train my quads without squats?
Avatar f tn MRI says- severe bone bruising and bleeding, micro fractures of tibia, 2 complex menus all tears-anterior and posterior, grade2-3 cartilage thinning, fluid above knee and in knee behind patella, bathers cyst, ligament strain, some bone growth and early osteoarthritis. What the hell do I do- I am thinking lose weight, swim, take chondritin, glucosamine, vitamin c, see a knee surgeon... what I DONt want is a knee replacement. It is a bit stiff, swollen and aches.
Avatar n tn I had the scope because of osteoarthritis of the knee with severe osteoarthritis of the patellofemoral joint and was hoping the surgery would buy me a few more years to work. This was a big mistake because I am in more pain now than before the surgery.
Avatar m tn Hello.. I have ocd and I am starting to worry about pain I ahve had in my knee fro about 4 years.. it seems to have gotten worse but was better for a little while... It is on the outside of my left knee... It hurts mainly at night when my knees rub together or when I get up from sitting/lying down for an hour or more.. Once I get up and start moving around it feels 100% fine??? I don't get it.. I even run 2 miles 3 days a week and after running it feels 100 % better..

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 f tn If the pain is on the top and outer thigh and causes numbness and pins and needle sensations running down to the knee, this is a trapped nerve in the groin area and is called meralgia parasthetica. If you are overweight, the answer is to lose weight because this puts pressure on the nerves. If find my condition worsens when I am walking or standing and only gets better when lying down.
15695260 tn?1549596713 Alentorn-Geli, Eduard et.al. “The Association of Recreational and Competitive Running with Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis” Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy 2017 47:6, 373-390 Most marathon runners are recreational runners, not training as professional or elite athletes. Whether marathon runners have more arthritis versus half-marathon runners or 5K runners, I'm not finding any info to support that.
Avatar m tn I am curious have you had an Mri? My knee does the same thing with the pain and cracking and popping and I seen a knee specialist who ordered a Mri and at 18 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. I feel like I am too young for this, but I played 8 years of soccer which the specialist said could have contributed. Have you played sports? Even over use of your knee while working can probably cause osteo.
Avatar n tn It is so painful he cannot do the exercises as he should and the knee is very swollen and tight. He has seen the general practitioner who is managing the pain but I am wondering if this is how it should be or if something is going off track and we should be seeing the surgeon for a follow-up. Thank you if anybody can help me.
