Osteoarthritis knee foot

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis knee foot


Avatar m tn now, i feel quite stiff in right knee and leg in morning and it is painful to put foot on ground.though, i am walking but not without pain and limping.the joint has become quite unstable and it is painful to use stairs or walk on uneven surface. no investigation supports infection but a fresh mri shows more degenerative changes in the joint.according to some orthopedicians tkr is the only answer but i am hesitant. what my case looks like and is there any scope of improvement?
Avatar m tn Lately I've noticed that when I plant my left foot and pivot on it to turn my body to the right, my left knee makes a popping sound. For a few days I could feel something move in the same knee when I would walk down stairs. It felt like it was located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. That went away. The right knee doesn't have any issues. There is no pain, tenderness, or swelling involved at all. Does this sound like it could be osteoarthritis?
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 m tn I have it on my bad knee. I saw the xray of my knee and could see the cartilage had worn away in part of the knee joint and I could see a little spikey bone sticking down. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, only a replacement of the knee joint if the condition is severe.
7486852 tn?1410355784 When I was around 18 I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee, but now I'm almost 25 and I am having a lot more bone pain but the most extreme is my knees but now I have the same pain, popping, cracking in my hips, ankles, wrists, lower ribcages with a bump on the right, shoulder blades, neck, spine, and my tailbone hurts pretty bad as well, oh and the bone in the side of my foot.. i haven't been back to a specialists since the diagnosis and I have no insurance.
Avatar f tn Also, the pain behind my knee like with the Planters Fasciitis is worse in the morning when I get up. Between the foot and behind my knee/calf I can't walk. It's a nightmare. And, how many docs can one person go to? A podiatrist; then an orthopedic, neurologist for the burning, etc., etc.
1176578 tn?1263756689 I am a 48 year old female who was diagnosed with osteoarthritis (left knee) nearly 10 years ago. After multiple tries on NSAIDS which made me ill, my orthopaedic surgeon settled on pain management (narcotic) which I have been taking for the past six years. While not an ideal situation, I follow my prescription to the letter, never taking more than prescribed. Over the past year I began to experience joint stiffness in the mornings.
Avatar m tn Lately there has been some pain in toes and occasionally down the sole of my foot. I have also begun having pain in my hands. Started in the joint at the base of my thumbs, but now I'm noticing it in my finger joints and thumb joint. I mentioned this to my MD at my annual physical and she felt that it was probably osteoarthritis (mainly due to the fact that there was no redness around the joints). She didn't order any kind of tests to confirm this diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Doctor told me Cartilage between the joints has gone . I am applying some ayurvedic oil to massage my knee and doing the stretching exercises along with pranayama and sudharshana kriya . My office is 20km away from my residence , I travel 40kms up and down everyday . Please can one tell is it safe driving car or not ? . Can anybody suggest with home remedies and care to be taken.
Avatar f tn With that said, I was sitting outside on the porch reading and when I got up from the porch I heard a loud crack in my left knee, now I can barely put any weight on it and it sent a stabbing pain from my knee to the bottom of my left foot. I went to a doctor and they told me I was to young to have anything serious wrong with my knees, but I cannot stand for a long period of time without them swelling and cracking and just hurting so badly that I cannot walk. So, what now?
Avatar n tn Do you have access to a gym? Or is this for at home exercises without any equipment?
Avatar m tn The best treatment, presently for Osteoarthritis , is Total knee replacement.Can you upload her knee X-rays on the photo section, so that i will be able to comment on that.
1524304 tn?1326400574 Oh does it? Really. Shouldn't those hurt? I don't feel pain when I keep my leg still. But it occasionally aches if I sit down (or just stand sometimes) and put weight-like elbows on my knees. I can feel some pain flaring up which feels like inside the knee or under the kneecap, but when I change the position or move the weight away the pain disappears. I was walking some today. It was okay. Got home and it starting to have this slight locking up feeling if I move it wrong.
Avatar m tn Lately I've noticed that when I plant my left foot and pivot on it to turn my body to the right, my left knee makes a popping sound. In the last few days I've noticed that I can feel something move in the same knee when I walk down stairs. It feels like it's located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. The right knee doesn't have any issues. There is no pain involved but I'm wondering if I should be taking some sort of action (glucosamine?) to prevent a future problem.
Avatar f tn I started training for a marathon (running 25-35 miles a week) and have started with a burning on the bottom of my right foot that lasts 2-5 seconds on and off. I had arthroscopic knee surgery 18 months ago for a right knee injury and they noted osteoarthritis. It doesnt hurt when I run now. What can it be?
Avatar f tn Hello. Though physical therapy is useful in osteoarthritis, several trials have found that physical therapy is only mildly or moderately useful. Different individuals respond differently to physical therapy. There are certain exercises, which should be learnt from a physical therapist. Following are some techniques, which I have mentioned here from the article "Role of physical therapy in management of knee osteoarthritis" by G. Kelley Fitzgerald and Carol Oatis.
93210 tn?1287457826 Anyway, now my ortho doc (unless the knee greatly improves) is talking about a total knee replacement in about a year. My other knee is in desperate need of a total because of severe osteoarthritis that has chewed away at my joint so much that I'm bone on bone now. My knee is constantly swollen and from time to time has about 60-70 cc's of fluid drawn off of it. And of course the pain is almost constant and mostly severe. Sorry for the long bio.
Avatar f tn Is there an agreed upon place (butt, back, foot, thigh?) to put the ice pack and/or heating pad to help sciatic nerve pain the most? If not, where has it helped YOU most effectively? I appreciate any and all responses!
Avatar n tn Exercise will also help, but it has to be non-impact, like bicycling or stationary cycling. Simply sitting in a chair and lifting the foot until the knee is straight, maybe with a couple pounds of weight on the ankle, can help keep the surrounding muscles and ligaments strong enough to provide support. Hope this helps!

Avatar f tn im 14 and ever since i fell about a year ago i began having real bad knee pain it started in my right knee, it was relly bad & i couldnt walk w/o crutches and a knee brace for about a week. then the pain went away for a while about 4 1/2 months and now its come back but this time on my left knee. i dont know if this has anything to do with my injury, it also could be my weight even though it shouldnt because im not too overweight just average.
1207048 tn?1282177904 It seems to be mostly the muscle on the back right side of my knee from just above the knee to just below. There is no swelling or anything of the area. Does anyone else get this? I'm thinking of asking my neuro to refer me to an orthopedic doctor (is that the right one?
Avatar f tn of 08. My first knee is doing great. On my second knee 8 months after the replacement I developed a blood clot deep in my calf. I was on blood thinners for 4 months. Since knee surgeory I have had some pain. Since the blood clot I now have more pain and I have swelling that starts above the knee and goes into my ankel. I can only spend about 30minutes to 1 hour on my feet and and I am hurting bad. Went to my dr. everything is checking out okay.
Avatar f tn I do not experience any grinding, locking, catching or giving way of the knee. There are no positions that make my knee uncomfortable other then putting my weight on it while kneeling. It feels totally normal otherwise. The pain is as if I knelt on a sharp rock or tack or even as if my bone is splintered. It began a couple of weeks ago while kneeling. I have not tried anything to help the pain other then not kneeling on it. Never had surgery. No hip pain or ankle pain.
Avatar m tn When I fold my left feet, I feel a bump on the inner side of the knee. When the foot is stretched I cant see the bump. I did not find it earlier. It must have developed in last few months. It surely was not there. Or at least it did not pained earlier. Even now it does not pain much. Occasionally and very slightly. But it pains (again not too much) when I fold my knee fully. So I avoid folding my left feet fully.
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 Front to back movement was very good, Pain developed on medial side of knee and the patella tendon when walking. When I move the knee or walk I can feel it 'clicking" and 'shooting" pain from the patella tendon The Doctor says that there is still some swelling in the knee. He has recommended synvisc treatments without ordering a new MRI. Will the synvisc reduce the pain and swelling? Is synvisc a curative or a temporary relief of symtoms? Are there any draw backs to synvisc?
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.
