Avatar m tn Classically morning pain and stiffness at end range of motion is noted in two conditions. Osteoarthritis of the knee joint is a common problem after 60 years of age. Patients present with knee pain that is aggravated by weight-bearing activities and relieved by rest. No systemic symptoms but usually awakens with morning stiffness that dissipates somewhat with activity. In addition to chronic joint stiffness and pain, episodes of acute synovitis may also be noted.
Avatar n tn However, the Orthopaedic did an Ultrasound and found tt it was Patella Tedonosis which I did not think was the case. In fact, another Orthopaedic (private) diagnosed me as having CMP with bilateral knee effusion. What do u make of both diagnosis? Which is more accurate? Or do u think I shld go for an MRI scan? Thanks and regards.
Avatar n tn I have osteoarthritis in my knee which has limited my range of motion...lately I have been feeling better(warm weather helps) so I have been frequenting the gym riding the recumbent bike 4x week for 45 min or so with ease! Routinely getting out of my car 4 days ago( not after the gym or anything like that) I felt a pop and my knee locked...didn't hurt to touch knee, ok to bear weight, just not bendable...
553692 tn?1215281331 I will have a partial knee replacement due to severe osteonecrosis of the right knee. I will also have metal plugs put in my tibia and femur, due to infarcted lesions. I am scared but I have confidence in my Dr. Im just too young to have something like this so I will be seeing my PC Dr. next week to see if there is an underlying disease process, such as diabetes, lupus, vascular abnormalities ect. Thank you for your support it is greatly appreciated!!!
Avatar f tn There is a small to moderate joint effusion. No Baker's cyst. A 2-3 mm joint body is seen posterior to the posterior cruciate ligament. A 1-2 mm joint body is suggested within the medial compartment. The patella is subluxed and tilted laterally. There is focal marked thinning and irregularity of the articular cartilage over the medial patellar facet near the keel with degenerative subcortical marrow signal changes.
Avatar f tn hi, ive just got an mri done after a year of suffering through knee pains. the results are as follows mild changes of osteoarthritis grade 3 tear root tear of posterior horn of medical meniscus myxoid degeneration of both menisci mild synovial effusion sprain of anterior cruciate ligament large bakers cyst it all sounds really scary and i would really appreciate an opinion on this.
Avatar m tn The MRI describes mild joint orientation abnormality and thinning of the cartilage that lines the knee cap to cause smooth functioning of the knee joint. Rest of the knee structures appear to be normal. Hope this helps. Take care!
454422 tn?1211419425 The occurrence of Baker cysts relates directly to the presence of knee effusion and the severity of the osteoarthritis. In 99 consecutive patients with RA, Andonopoulos and coauthors demonstrated Baker cysts on ultrasonograms of 47 patients (48%).6 Twenty of the 99 patients (20%) had bilateral cysts. Of 198 knees, 67 (34%) had Baker cysts, yet only 29 cysts (43%) were diagnosed clinically. (Refer: http://www.emedicine.com/radio/topic72.
Avatar f tn I have been having left knee pain. I have mild osteoarthritis in this knee. Below the knee cap towards the inside I have been getting a lump that gets bigger with activity. I also get burning pain when it gets bigger. Now it is like a thick line about a inch or so long starting in he same spot and going down. What is this?
4210566 tn?1353012483 Findings consistent with moderate osteoarthritis involving the medial compartment of the left knee. This is manifested by diffuse thinning of the articular cartilage of the medial femoral condyle as well as patchy marrow edema within the left medialy extruded from the joint line. Complex tear involving both the body and the posterior horn of the left medial meniscus. The ACL has an unusual wavy or lax appearance especially over its distal third.
Avatar f tn Hi, I recently wacked the outside of my right knee against a hard surface...around the area of the top of the Fibula (below and to the right of the knee. I seem to now have a lump there that is not painful but is noticeable when I bend my knee.....any ideas whether this hard bump is something I should worry about or is it just a result of the concussion to the area. As I said it does not sem to hurt or inhibit my activity in any way.....
Avatar n tn A Baker cyst may cause no symptoms or be associated with knee pain and/or tightness behind the knee, especially when the knee is extended or fully flexed. Baker cysts are usually visible as a bulge behind the knee which is particularly noticeable on standing and comparing to the opposite uninvolved knee. They are generally soft and minimally tender. Baker cysts can become complicated by protrusion of fluid down the leg between the muscles of the calf (dissection).
Avatar m tn The report describes changes in the knee morphology which may be indicative of osteoarthritis or prolonged inflammation causing synovial proliferation. The treatment is initially conservative with rest, physiotherapy and painkillers followed by active physiotherapy. In cases not responding to treatment, joint replacement may be an option. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar n tn I work alot and my knee was in pain frequently and then blew up and locked had knee effusion; bad osteoarthritis; bone on bone. Had TKR in 2008 and have fallen around 10 times since then. now as i was examining a patient, my knee hyperextended locked and went back. I'm in continual pain, and i told my surgeon and claims it was a tear in first ligament then tendon. it wasn't healing and it's hard to walk. Putting weight on leg is getting more difficult.
Avatar f tn Osteoarthritis, the worse overall chondrosis in the laterial tibiofemoral compartmentn where the abnormalities include a relatively well-defined approx 1 cm AP dimension high-grade chondral defect along the more posterior weightbearing lateral femoral ondyle with an adjacent less well-defined segment of high-grade partial thickness cartliage loss along the lateral tibial plateau (without subchondral bone marrow edema); and an approx 1 cm segment of partial-thickness cartliage loss and fissurin
Avatar f tn No full thickness cartilage defects.4.Knee joint effusion with no osteochondral intraaticular bodies. 5. Bilobed popliteal cyst.Cortison injections were given I have had problems since I had syvinal injections which worked for 7 months. Pain in knee and the gel injections a second time in April. Knee pain has returned. I also have RA and have been on Plaqunil for a few months.I also have thinning of the bones.I am a 52 year old female. My Dr said I should go ahead with knee replacement.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am very confused about the recent MRI results I received. The findings were that there was "minimal intrasubstance increased signal in the posterior part of the body of the medial meniscus, consistent with mild degenerative changes with no evidence of a tear." Also, "trace amount of joint effusion." I do not understand how this could be the case because I am 20 years old. I am not at all overweight and knee pain/arthritis does not run in my family.
Avatar m tn I gave up downhill skiing and snowboarding years ago because of knee problems and now concentrate on road biking and XC skiing. The pain started out as a sharp sudden pain if I moved the wrong way mostly involving hip flexion and rotation. Cycling was not painful at all. I was being treated for a groin pull and was told that it was OK to to continue with my routine of cycling around 225 miles a week. I did 8 weeks of physical therapy which helped with range of motion.
Avatar n tn Hi Dear Synvisc is used to relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA). It is approved for those patients who do not get adequate relief from painkillers such as acetaminophen, or from exercise and physical therapy. Synvisc is injected directly into the joint to restore the lubricating properties of normal joint fluid. The therapy is generally well tolerated. However, it may not work for everyone.
Avatar n tn I have always had some odd symtoms like an arm that goes numb, numbness in my knee here and there, and some other stuff. I have had tests for MS more than once. I don't think it's that but maybe some other type. I feel like the surgery was a major assault on my body and just sort of turned on the switch to have my body attack me. Perhaps doing a week of steroids might help.

739070 tn?1338607002 Only one episode of joint effusion (R knee). Pain only symptom iin hands and hips,so I guess arthralgia is the better term. Old rheumy noted some minor OA in hands. Hips alternate with pain. X-ray showed no cartilage loss. Recurrent bursititis and steroid injections. Finally saw ortho re L hip pain one year ago and he was the 1st to order PT. Hip pain thought to be due to weakness and altered gait according to PT.

Avatar n tn Everything came back normal except my spine has osteoarthritis and scoliosis and a couple bone spurs. So maybe thats the reason. I asked a doctor and she looked at me like I was crazy and prescribed ativan for anxiety and albuterol for the wheeze. I am afraid to ask any other doctor, due to they just give you that funny look and say "it sounds like your breathing", I even asked my husband and he said the same thing.
