Avatar m tn Hi Jim, Welcome to the Senior Health Forum. I am very sorry to hear about your torn/worn cartilage. You must be in horrid pain and my heart goes out to you. Unfortunately once your joint becomes bone on bone there is little left to do other then a total knee replacement. Cartilage replacement procedure is not a simple task. Procedures and products are being tested every day but to my knowledge the usual "cure" is a knee replacement.
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 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.
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 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 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 f tn I am not familiar with total knee replacement outcomes, so I looked it up. Here's an summary of a study specific to hip surgery (n~50,000) that may help answer some questions; http://www.news-medical.net/news/2009/01/05/44637.aspx and this study based on n=1724 points to anatomical structural deformities as well as osteoarthritis as primary causes. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar f tn Generalized osteoarthritis develops spontaneously. Generalized osteoarthritis is more prevalent in patients with advanced knee osteoarthritis than in patients with advanced hip osteoarthritis. Older women are more affected by generalized osteoarthritis than any other group. Some researchers believe there is a correlation between the presence of Heberden's nodes and generalized osteoarthritis." Having all the stress you've been under could have triggered the sores in your mouth.
Avatar f tn I have Kryo globulaniemia and hope that I spelled it right my GI sent out a blood test that took 2 -3 weeks and it came back positive I am not saying that is what you have and do not want to give advice but I was diagnosed with osteo arthritis before I went through tx and now I want to kick myself for letting the dr talk me into two knee surgeries never again will I go under the knife unless I am in a life or death situation and my Family has to give the ok, but they will not get it from me.
3944505 tn?1348713277 you see I know it does get easier though. No need to freak out good news you won't have no more periods bad news the hot flashes will get worse then the night sweats starts but go to the doctor & say I want estrogen & they will get better.
987762 tn?1331031553 For example, I know that when I am experiencing the MS hug, I tend to clutch my side with one hand – after a full day of walking around like this, I notice that my knee and hip on one side are a little sore. The good news is that you can do something to improve your gait and reduce associated joint pain. One study found that the gait of people with MS could be improved through resistance training after only 8 weeks, using regular, commercially-available resistance training equipment.

1475492 tn?1332887767 It doesn't appear that I have any visible lesions. The bad news: I am most definitely a limbolander with unexplained neurological symptoms. Bleh. I am not sure what to think. I will be curious where she will go from here.
Avatar n tn I have osteoarthritis in this arm and severe pain in the winter during the rainy months. The circulation in my hand is bad and it always feels cold and burning. What kind of Dr would I see for this pain?
Avatar f tn Ask her what alternative she has to offer to deal with the pain. I have advanced osteoarthritis in my jaw joints and was in a really bad way, but God has helped me tremendously by way of a physical therapist trained in TMJ issues who knows how to do ultrasound and electrical stimulation in the right places.
3202871 tn?1352133377 Hello, congratulations for finishing tx and getting to SVR, that is great news! I also have curls from tx, pretty odd sx but I will take it :) About feeling better, it takes everyone a different amount of time. Some feel better at 3 or 6 months. It took me a year. Not to say that it will take you a year. I have cirrhosis so had a really hard time on tx. I guess I am lucky to have gotten to SVR. I am sure others will be along soon to help out.
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.
10175413 tn?1427173851 The reason for this post is I want to know how many post treaters have had to see a Rheumatologist, over bone pain and now pretty nasty degenerative joint disease in the pelvic, hip and knee joint areas? Any additional info you want to provide is welcome....
Avatar n tn Dear Steve: Sorry that your symptoms are persisting. The good news (yet not satisfying) is the completely normal work-up thus far. The most worrisome diseases have been ruled out. I can only feel the depth of your frustration as having real and worrisome symptoms yet nothing turns up. I can only suggest that you try and let the tincture of time either turn the tide towards normality or disease.
Avatar m tn On a good day, the pain might be a 3 or 4. On a bad day, it's more like 8. It's mainly from Osteoarthritis in my Lumbar spine, but I also have arthritis in my hands, feet,, neck, knees, shoulders, etc., but also fron Crohn' s and Fibromyalgia. I have maintained the same dosage level of meds for about 10 years. I REALLY don't want to get into the doseage increase spiral. I'd like to get off the opioid.
645390 tn?1338558977 Good morning, Michelle. This sure stinks - your list of dx's just keeps growing. It's time to knock this off! Seriously, I am glad you have an answer for this one and I hope they get you cleared up.
Avatar m tn See the picture. My mom was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in her knee joints but she says it no so much hurts (it does sometimes) but she notices the leg is a lot weaker. In addition, recently, we noticed that every night her foot gets really swollen (I took the picture the next day) but it got REALLY swollen (like 1.5X that size) when we were at the beach. Also, the swollen part is squishy but she says it doesn't hurt.
Avatar m tn My symptoms are legs and knee pain and weakness, sinus at regular intervals, high uric acid, cancer marker test and RA arthritis marker test is negative. Hiv test also negative after 11 months after last protected intercourse.
Avatar f tn good luck with the new neuro! Me- Knee surgery tomorrow morning to repair meniscal tear that's 9 months old and STILL causing pain. Actually looking forward to a minor increase in pain to end the knee pain once and for all. Happy Spring! Everyone have a good week!!
Avatar n tn The first occurrence was in my right knee. If I bent my knee near its maximum extent (such as when kneeling, crouching or climbing into bed), I experienced an incredibly painful tearing/burning sensation in the area of my patellar tendon. I would immediately react and straighten my knee and the pain would completely dissipate within several minutes. Afterward the area would feel about 50% numb, as if injected with a mild local anesthetic that was slowly wearing off, for several hours.
1840891 tn?1431551393 src=mpnews Topical NSAIDs May Be a Better Choice for Elderly With OA September 18, 2012 — Topical diclofenac is about as effective as oral diclofenac in knee and hand osteoarthritis (OA), is probably as effective as other oral NSAIDs, and might be a safer choice for elderly patients and others at risk for gastrointestinal adverse effects, according to an intervention review published online September 12 in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have just had my 1st SYNVISC injection. I have no cartilage in my knee, after 4 ops. I am due to see the consultant for no 2 tomorrow. BUT I do have a few questions before the jab. I too live in constant 24/7 pain, but injection no 1 has made no difference yet, oh & it hurt like hell during & for 4 days after. I am still on 2 crutches, I only usually need 1 walking stick. Do your research & don't be afraid to ask to many questions. All the very best to you.
435241 tn?1208579131 Having the same symptoms in my left knee but the doc thinks if he corrects my meniscal tear the IT band and my other knee will correct itself. I sure hope so cause I cant be down with a huge knee surgery with a 9 month old. This one on Friday is going to be hard enough and im only down for 2 weeks or so. Thank god for my husband and family. I will try that make up. I can usually get it to smooth down a little with some good lotion but you can still see it. Does your rash come and go?
