Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis knee gout


Avatar f tn You can have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis and not have Gout and vise versa. If you have either one of those and your Gout clears you will still be left with the pain of arthritis....just not Gouty Arthritis. Ppl with kidney disease are more prone to Gouty Arthritis. If your kidney's are diseased the are unable to remove adequate amounts of uric acid from the body, It can also make you more susceptible to kidney stones.
Avatar n tn There will be severe pain and numbness in the knee joint in these conditions. Osteoarthritis, gout, inflammatory arthritis may present with knee pain and swelling in the absence of a knee injury. A proper examination of the knee joint will help in determining the source of pain. That will further help in deciding what tests may be needed in diagnosis. X ray knee joint, RA factor, CRP, ESR are the few basic investigations that may be done. Consult an orthopedician. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Do you suffer from gout at all, is the knee inflamed and red or just painful? I would advise you see your doctor for a proper diagnosis. Your doctor may refer you for xray. I have osteoarthritis in both knees, but my right knee is the worst.
Avatar m tn I am a 22 year old male, I would say about 5 months ago I started developing a stiffness in my right knee. At first it would come and then go for long periods of time. Now however it is quite frequent. I rarely feel pain in my knee, rather it feels weak, like it will give out on me when I put weight on it. It is most uncomfortable when I climb stairs.
Avatar n tn Osteoarthritis, Ligament damage, Meniscus damage or Patello-femoral disorder. Keep me informed. Bye.
Avatar n tn If the MRI is clear then the knee pain and swelling can be due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout or due to bursitis. You must get blood tests done to rule out rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Also, to reduce pain and swelling you can try: ice packs, steroids injections, knee caps and braces, pain killers, ultrasound therapy, wax therapy, physiotherapy etc. Please discuss the other physiotherapy methods that can be used and whether steroid injections will help you. Take care!
Avatar f tn Arthritis could be due to rheumatic fever, osteoarthritis, psoriasis, gout etc. As symmetric joints are involved and considering your age rheumatoid arthritis is common. I would suggest that you visit a orthopedician for confirmation of the cause for arthritis and there by advise on treatment. Best.
Avatar m tn It can be knee injury due to knee sprain , prior knee injury ,dislocated knee , dislocated patella, femoral condyle fracture, torn ligament , knee overuse , knee infection due to any bacterial infection , knee inflammation due to synovitis or bursitis or Knee arthritis due to arthritis , osteoarthritis , rheumatoid arthritis or gout and any tumor. Take care!
Avatar m tn It can start by feeling a ache here, but the disease slowly progressively gets worse as we age. There are different types of arthritis, but the common ones are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid, and gout. Osteoarthritis is wear and tear on the joints due to the cartilage in between the joints shrinking, sometimes injuries can cause arthritic joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder and affects the internal organs as well as the joints.
Avatar f tn Hello, Without examination,confirming a diagnosis is tough but the various possibilities for your symptoms are tendonitis (an inflammation of the tendon) , ligament injury,arthritis(rheumatoid,osteoarthritis,psoritic,gout or reactive arthritis) , chondomalacia(softening of the cartilage under the kneecap (patella) and mainly found in young women) , osteomalacia(deficiency of vit D in adults),metastasis and bursitis.
Avatar f tn About six months ago..I had my normal bout of knee pain..I suffer from gout, which I thought was coming on. I took my meds...etc. nothing helped. So I went to my general doctor..she though it was arthritis because the xray showed osteo arth.. but the meds didn't help..flash forward to a month ago..I finally convinced them I am in dire straits...my symptoms are horrible knee pain when moved to the left or right. I can straighten my knee just fine. There is absolutly no pain the touch...
Avatar n tn My husband has been told he has ostearthritis, and in server pain with his leg( around the knee joint. One doctor has mention him having cortison injections.
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 cfm Other causes of knee locking are torn medial meniscus, knee cap mal-alignment, osteoarthritis, knee arthritis, torn lateral meniscus, Osteochondritis dissecans - occasional knee locking with instability, Recurrent patella dislocation - may cause knee locking or knee collapse, Chondromalacia patella - occasional locking or knee collapse, Knee alignment problem, Knee fragment or Knee cartilage disorder. Hope this helps. Do not ignore it. Consult an orthopedic specialist.
Avatar n tn bursitis due to inflammation from repeated pressure on the knee, dislocation of knee cap, tendinitis etc. are other possible causing for the excruciating knee pain worsening on knee movement. Consult an orthopaedician with these contentions. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn Hello; for the past few months I have been experiencing a pain in my knee, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a very sharp pain, like an electrical shock. It happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking, sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of any injury or unusual stress to that area.

Avatar n tn Hi, Please Google for Gout or Osteoarthritis to get more details.
Avatar n tn My husband who is 70 had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and the pain seems to be intensifying rather than diminishing. He had a childhood injury to this knee, then another operation 13 years ago but is crying with the pain most of the time and has gone from ordinary pain killers to needing morphine. He has physiotherapy 3 times per week, also hydrotherapy and acupuncture, they all say he is making some progress but very slowly and keep telling him exercising will relieve the pain.
Avatar n tn Pain in early morning which relieves with mild walking is early sign of arthritis. Joint infection, osteoarthritis, gout, inflammatory arthritis are few other possible causes. A complete knee examination by an orthopaedician will be helpful. Early diagnosis and treatment will definitely help. Do keep us updated. Best of luck and kind regards!
Avatar m tn My last painful swelling episode prompted a local doctor to do a arthocentisis and he withdrew 115cc of synovial fluid. I have no history of gout or any other painful joints except the knees I injured twenty some years ago. He diagnosed gout despite a normal uric acid blood test and no test available for uric acid crystals. My question is: Can degenerative arthritis have the symptom of frequent swelling of the knee with synovial fluid?
4251682 tn?1351733043 This could be due to a variety of issues such as injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, osteoarthritis, autoimmune diseases, bursitis, gout, infection like influenza, measles or rubella. If it persists, you may need to have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Additional diagnostic tests may also be done to help determine the diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn This will help rule out infection or presence of gout. Knee pain usually results from arthritis (rheumatoid, osteoarthritis, and gout), baker's cyst, bursitis, connective tissue disorders such as lupus, dislocation of the kneecap, iIliotibial band syndrome, infection or any trauma or abnormalities in the structures in the knee. Many causes of knee pain, especially those related to overuse or physical activity, respond well to self-care such as resting and applying ice to the affected area.
Avatar m tn 50years old man not aware of any medical problems complains of pain related to his joints in different places ( fingers, knee, foot ankle) it takes 2 weeks relief by ibuprofen and voltaren emulgel so the question is what is your recommendation about this case ? do you advice of some vitamins especially that he is getting older?
Avatar n tn what kind of sickness is this when the person can't walk and her ankle,knee,back,and jaw is hurting but it's not swollen?
Avatar n tn Similarly if you were prone for arthritis such as osteoarthritis, the period of inactivity could have aggravated the arthritis and hence swollen joints. There are various causes of multiple joint pains like osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic pathology, thyroid problems etc. Please consult an orthopedic specialist regarding this. There are no swollen joints associated with inactivity alone as the cause. However inactivity aggravates an existing joint condition like arthritis.
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 am not sure what genetic condition you have, but if it is causing knee pain, it can also cause shoulder and elbow pain. Multiple joint pain is seen in fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hashimotos 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 If your symptoms persist then get yourself examined by an orthopedician and go for some scans and rule out conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and conditions like gout. Take care!
