Avatar n tn I have osteoarthritis of the knee and am awaiting my first Synvisc 1 shot, 12/12/11. The past few days I have been getting an extremely sharp pain from the knee to the hip. Different cause each time. Each time successively worse. Happens about 10 times a day. By the 7th or 8th time I'm in tears. Today it happened when I went to apply the brake in my car. The worst pain is in the hip area, not the knee. Any idea what is going on and how to stop it?
331673 tn?1199357885 it seems to be in correspondence with hip pain as well on my right hip. the pain is above my knee cap...not muscular...and hurts mostly between and 90-120% angles when I extend my knee out. I have no idea why it corresponds with hip pain as well. Both knees also feel like there is no lubrication in the joint...for if I sit in sams position for a long period of time...both knees start and ache! I also am flat footed...I am wondering if this can have anything to do with it. Please help...
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.
1175033 tn?1492204828 I went to Shriners hospital when I was 13ish, and one of the doctors there told me that I could need hip replacements by the age of 35. I didnt want to believe him, but now I starting to realize why he said that. I also have noticed reoccurring pains in alot of my joints along with stiffness and muscle spasms. I also have weird bone growths, on my ankle, heel, toe joints, finger joints, Im too young for all this. My sed rate always comes back normal.
Avatar m tn The regular arthritis pain increases gradually when the patient is walking and prevents walking altogether after about 15 yards. The grabbing pain is additional to the regular pain. The only relief for the pain is sitting. Lying down, getting up, standing, walking, twisting, reaching, any movement may cause the grabbing pain unexpectedly. It seems to radiate from the spine across the top of the hip and down the right leg.
Avatar n tn 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? Needless to say I have stopped going to that PT tech.
1378884 tn?1315509445 He found a deposit on the bone near hip as well. MRI tomorrow too. So if my hip feels better, pain goes away in foot then it may be that I have RA and Osteo which is exacerbated by the mechanical injury or visa versa. What do ya think, anyone?
Avatar f tn I have osteoarthritis just about everywhere. I have had bilateral hip replacements, knee replacement, shoulder replacement and stenosis for which I have had back surgery for L4-5, S1, laminectomy and spinal fusion. The stenosis is back in my spine. I have been taken off anything with acetaminophen b/c of the kidney damage. I am in terrible pain and need something that I can take that will not cause more kidney damage.
Avatar n tn Do you have any hip or ankle pain (both hip and ankle pain can refer pain to the knee, and vice versa)? Keep me informed. Bye.

Avatar n tn Hi a year ago I visited my GP with left hip and upper thigh pain. He sent me for an X-Ray which showed early arthritis changes. He sent for a course of Physiotherapy which I attended for 6months. In the end I stopped going because after the initial mild improvement in pain there was no further improvement. I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily.
Avatar n tn Your other symptom of pain while climbing, standing and knee getting sore is suggestive of Osteoarthritis. Your symptom of awakening at night with pain is suggestive Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome or compressive pathology of any nerve. I think you need complete evaluation with help of an orthopaedician and neurologist for likely pathology. You also need thorough imaging study of spine and knee joint. It should include a MRI study too.
Avatar n tn No, there is no grinding or anything like that. But when I move the knee cap and the leg is totally relaxed there is a vibration (I can’t think of the right word). It just feels like the knee is vibrating when I move the knee cap up and down. It fine when I am sitting walking and doing basic movements. But when I jump and run in basketball, thrust forward on a bike, kneel, or do exercises such as squatting or lunges. The pain is pretty bad.
1459410 tn?1285698605 I just found this forum, though I've been a member of the chronic pain forum for months now. I developed osteoarthritis young. I can remember back to my twenties and feeling it on and off, though it was mild. My mom was debilitated by it and on my dad's side, I had two aunts crippled by it. I'm 48 now and have it in my hands, hips, knee, back and ankle. The worst is my hand. I won't go into too much detail as it's a very long story but I think I have the details in my profile.
Avatar f tn Then i started having pain in my right knee which felt the same way as my left knee when the pain started, it turned out to be that i also developed a plica in that knee to and tore something i forgot what it was called, and my recent surgery was in november and i tore the same thing from before, i dont remember the name of it, i know it started with an L though.
Avatar m tn 23 year old male who is concerned about this problem. I have been having knee pain for 3 years. Sometimes it's good, other times I get pain. It's not debilitating, but it's a dull ache when resting or bending the knees (sitting with crossed legs) sometimes pain radiates into my shin They also sometimes make sounds. When straightening my knee, it makes a pop or a couple cracks. I also have a small bakers cyst on one leg. I've done an xray which was normal.
Avatar f tn I have had pain in my low back and hip for over a year. I have been treated for sciatica, piriformis syndrome and SI dysfunction. An Xray of my hip shows that I have acetabular retroversion, which basically means my hip sockets aren't aligned properly with my joint. MRI results show that my hip joint is degenerating (early onset of osteoarthritis), I have tendonosis of my iliopsoas muscles, and grade 1 strains of my adductors and quadratus femorus.
Avatar f tn Do you have any hip or ankle pain (both hip and ankle pain can refer pain to the knee, and vice versa)? Keep me informed. Bye.
Avatar n tn Well, pain and stiffness just after you get up after sitting is a sign of RA or osteoarthritis. You said you are very active and a cyclist, perhaps you injured your hips somehow. Resting while taking the anti inflamatory might work. Make sure you take the anti inflamatories with food as they can do damage to your stomach. If it comes back then have it checked out by a Dr. if you have insurance, x-ray, blood work for RA factor, CRP and Sed rate.
Avatar n tn Patients with Patello-femoral disorders classically report pain with prolonged knee flexion, and pain relief with knee extension as it is true in your case. What is the quality of your pain (sharp, shooting, dull, etc.)? Have you tried anything to help the pain and, if yes, has that been successful? Have you ever had surgery on your knee? Do you have any hip or ankle pain? Keep me informed. Bye.
1522912 tn?1292053850 did u check with a pain management dr. because i believe ur hip & butt pain is originating from ur lower back disc..
Avatar f tn Have you tried anything to help the pain and, if yes, has that been successful? Have you ever had surgery on your knee? Do you have any hip or ankle pain? When any patient complains of “knee pain,” the initial differential diagnosis in most of the cases includes: Osteoarthritis, Ligament damage, Meniscus damage or Patello-femoral disorder. Keep me informed. Bye.

Avatar n tn She is also very active. Her parents have had hip and knee replacements. My mom and I both have symptoms of restless leg syndrome, especially the urge to move. I move my legs constantly when I'm sitting in my desk chair. Is RA hereditary? Could this be just another symptom of restless leg syndrome? Are they related? And why would the pain stop during activity. Could running and other strenuous excercise worsen a possible injury even though I have no pain during that activity?
Avatar f tn You don't have any of these symptoms which signify you are not having advanced stage of disease. You don't have hip pain or knee pain that rules out any nerve involvement. I think it might be due to result of a collateral ligament or meniscus problem (or both) until proven otherwise. I recommend you to see an orthopaedician at earliest and get imaging studies done for further evaluation. X-rays study including AP weight-bearing, AP in 45° extension, lateral, and sunrise views.

387767 tn?1345875627 I would like to get back to my old life, or at least be able to walk for a distance without pain. The pain goes down the outside of my knee, sometimes down my leg and shoots around the knee when it is bad. Is there any answer for me? It seems the doctors are not very concerned, but I am. My husband is retiring soon and we want to travel, which means sightseeing and walking.
