Avatar n tn My visit with the surgeon was disappointing to say the least, he said no herniations only bone spurs? Is it possible a bone spur be accidently diagnosed as herniated discs? With all due respect to the man I feel he if way off base. Please advise your thoughts.
Avatar m tn The band works together with several of the thigh muscles to provide stability to the outside of the knee joint. Bone spurs are little bones that grow out of the normal bone, this why they are called bone spurs. These then press on nerves and cause aggravation and pain. This is typical of osteoarthritis.

Avatar n tn In osteoarthritis, basically bone is rubbing on bone so deterioration will continue even though the cortisone temporarily makes it feel better. The doctor may recommend trying something like Synvisc, which is a material injected into the knee to provide temporary cushioning, like a temporary replacement for cartilage. My father in law had this done and it did provide relief for a while, but again this may only put off surgery for an additional couple years.
Avatar f tn There's nothing else that I've done recently that could have injured it. The knee was injured when I was 16. It jammed hard; a chip of bone was pulled away by a ligament. That was deep in the knee. This injury feel like it's on the skin. I don't think they're related. Who knows. I'll stop doing squats for now. If I ever begin squats again (I love them) won't do them so deeply any more. For now I'll use ibuprofen and straight leg lifts with no weight.
11446628 tn?1418302080 I have osteoarthritis in my spine, from neck down. 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?
1467506 tn?1286416617 48 year old female with Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis: I had surgery on my foot 2 months ago to remove a bone spur on the top of my foot. I also had a toe (second toe, next to great toe) that was affected by separate pain and had completely turned crooked. The top of my foot - where the spur was removed is still very sore and painful if I wear shoes that tie or walk for any distance. The entire foot feels cramped as well.
Avatar n tn I just got a diagnosis on this, unfortunately it is not good I have all the same symptoms everyone else is having, got scared went in for an MRI and my orthopedic said it was due to cartlidge being ripped and the liquid between the knee is slowing going away, leaving nothing but bone and bone to rub leaving the sharp and tingling feeling. It is correctable but it involves surgery where they will need to make 3 very small cuts.

1207048 tn?1282177904 I've had knee pain and catching for awhile and just found out two days ago, when they x-rayed it, that I have bone-on-bone arthritis in my knee!! Hard to believe that all the aching around my knee and down the rest of my leg is from arthritis. Tendon problems can cause aching (worse at night) too--I was previously diagnosed with posterior tibial tendon syndrome, which runs from the inside of the ankle down the bottom of the foot into the big toe.
Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis in my knee - I had to have major surgery in it 20 years ago to reattach torn knee ligaments and now I have arthritis, with bone spurs and my knee is slightly bent inwards. I've been doing aerobic workouts on the Concept 2 rowing machine. Is this bad for my knee? I don't bend my knee much past 90 degrees when I row, because it's stiff. Also I don't row with the damper set high. I use it with the damper at 2.5 or 3.
Avatar n tn Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes stiffness and pain in the joints. Osteoarthritis involves growth of bone spurs and degeneration of cartilage at a joint. It is very common in adults older than 45 and can cause joint pain. Joint pain may also be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the bursae). The bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone.

Avatar f tn The arthritis of which they speak is osteo-arthritis, not rheumatiod arthritis which deforms joints in hands, arms, and legs. Osteoarthritis of the spine can cause bone spurs that put pressure on nerve roots causing pain, numbness, and other sensation. Arthritic facet joints of the back can be very painful. Treatments include physiotherapy, injections, pain medication, and surgery in cases of severe spine disease. Please write your questions and take with you on your visit to her doctor.
Avatar f tn Four years ago I was dx with osteoarthritis of both knees. Dr. said that I was walking "bone on bone" and that eventually I'd probably need tkr in both knees. He advised using glucosamine chondroitin which I've done and for awhile it seemed to help. I was able to increase my exercise a bit and was walking more with less pain and swelling. In the past few months pain and swelling has increased which I attributed to less exercise and some weight gain, about 4 or 5 pounds.
1191770 tn?1267714045 A little about me- I was 35 when I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and Degenerative Disk Disease when I developed bone spurs in my hips and could not tolerate the pain anymore, (I'll be 58 in April).
Avatar n tn I have no cartiledge left and rubbing bone on bone with several bone spurs. I have had some relief. I had my first injection on the left knee 1 week ago and it is great. No pain whatsoever. Two more shots to go. My insurance coverage was great too. I had to pay $100.00 copay for a Synvisc. (box of 3) each box $100.00 My question to others that have had these injections is if they experienced any depression with this medication.
Avatar f tn I have been told my legs have hyper reflexes but I also have osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my hips so I do not want to jump the gun and increase my Baclofen. I only take 5 mg of Baclofen at night for my arm spasticity and it seems to do the trick for now, even though my neuro is ok for me to up it incrementally to 20 mg if needed. I have not noticed an issue with my legs before this despite my arms and the reflex issues with my legs.
527589 tn?1301681778 Also during this time I had various episodes of joint pain; aching left knee(mild osteoarthritis), sticking/painful left hip(m/o w/spurs), right elbow and wrist pain(m/o), very low back pain(mild stenosis, m/o), sometimes sever neck pain and stiffness where I couldn't turn my head(m/o, spurs, mild sten). None of the bone aches happened at the same time and lasted 2-7 days each. Occassionaly I would have left side mid back burning and pain. Something always hurt.
Avatar f tn I have severe arthritis with bone spurs in my left hip joint. I had no problems and then woke up four months ago with severe pain. Went to my doctor who gave me some options. I wasn't ready to accept referral to a surgeon as I thought it might go away. In the meantime she gave me some drugs. Dicloffinac and tramadol and sent me for a cortisone shot. By this time I needed a cane to walk.
Avatar n tn I also have osteoarthritis, degenerative disk disease and bone spurs. My doctor ALSO said neuropathic pain, prescribed prednisone and sent me on my way. I desperately searched for another physician to help me with the new pain in addition to the old pain. I have been taking Lyrica for about 3 months now and it has helped with the burning and stabbing pain, but I have yet to have a pain-free moment since this all started.

326947 tn?1252594833 Until yo can get in to see a doctor of any kind, mind your posture, bend at the knee ad try not to lift anything over 30 lbs. If you have to, bend at the knee, hold whatever it is close to you and stand. Lifting with your arms while bent over adds TONS of weight to your back. Your doc will be able to instruct you better based off your xray results. As for getting in to the rhuem, take the time waiting to keep a health diary of how you feel each day, your activities and your diet.
Avatar m tn I’m in my mid-forties, and have a lot of medical problems that keep me in constant pain. Some of the things I’ve been diagnosed with include osteoarthritis, bone spurs, fibromyalgia, sciatica, lots of torn cartilage in my knees, lower back pain, COPD, anxiety attacks, depression, PTSD, and, well, you get the picture. My primary doctor and my neurologist have me on a lot of medications.
Avatar f tn of age, female and weigh about 176 lbs. I had a disc replacement in 95 with cage. L5... I've had 8 other back surgeries for bone spurs, nerve repair and buldging discs. Have a SCS in bottom back that takes care of all that pain. I have Arachnoiditis, that was the reason for the SCS. The CT scan is so confusing, being that I'm not in the medical field. If any one can help me understand my CT scan before I go to the Doctor, I can write down some things to ask him.
645390 tn?1338558977 I was also dx with Osteoarthritis a few weeks ago, by a orthopedic knee surgeon,and have NO cartilage on either lateral sides of my knees. I also have bone spurs as well. Had cortisone shot, and am currently in PT. I really do think I "might" not be denied this time with SS? We will see.

Avatar n tn Lumbar spine • Facet joint arthropathy with foraminal stenosis - Nerve Root Compression • Damage to the Vertebral Body End Plates with development of Osteophytes (Bone Spurs - Osteoarthritis) that grow into the Spinal Canal (Cervical) or Central Canal (Lumbar), as well as intractable pain from Sinuvertebral Nerve damage - that causes Neuroinflammation and triggers release of inflammatory chemicals resulting in intractable pain.
