Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis knee pain


529224 tn?1400651819 I've had one knee replacement in 2011 - I'm 65 now. The other knee was about to be replaced in 2012 and an emergency came in and my OP was postponed.I took up hill walking, despite it hurt, aquafit twice a week and swimming lengths (not breaststroke!) - which my consultant had suggested before first knee OP, and my knee (despite being in a worse arthritic state than the first knee before OP!) improved - I don't have pain, or instability anymore!
Avatar m tn I have pain in the right knee for two years now. X-rays show lack of fluid in the knee. Thus giving lot of pain. I have tried all sorts of therapies, but to no effect. I am now thinking of either get a shot or replace the knees. The left knee is also on the brink. I have to use pain killers. Please advise about taking a shot if I should take a shot of Synvisc-One.

Avatar f tn Is there a relatively new procedure that either builds cartledge or relieves pain for osteoarthriris in the knee?
Avatar m tn i was also wondering about the osteoarthritis as my dr told me that i have severe degenerative osteoarthritis of the lower spine (I forgot the numbers), hips, left shoulder and both feet. I had major surgery last summer and mesh was used to attach part of my bowel to my spine. My dr figures that this may have jump-started the arthritis issues. Currently i have probs walking, bending and overall it hurts to be on my feet for more than 20 mins at a time.
Avatar m tn after this i started feeling increasingly severe pain in right knee which forced me to stop my morning walk. on consulting orthopedic surgeon, a medial meniscus tear was detected in mri for which arthroscopic menisectomy was done in mid november,2009. but to my dismay, instead of expected improvement my condition has become much worse. 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.
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.
Avatar m tn Till now i have not heard of this disease than suddenly my friend is diagnosed with this problem. Can anyone tell me what exactly it means.

Avatar m tn knee osteoarthritis . Is electrical nerve stimulation(tens) an effective therapy for providing pain relief?
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.
1175033 tn?1492204828 I know people young than I who've had it done, and they agree it's the best thing they ever did. I had terrible low back pain and sciatic nerve pain until the hips were replaced, now it's pretty much gone. :) Hang in there!
Avatar n tn Hello doctor, I am an woman and at the age of 55.I have started with knee pain shortly.when ever I am sitting for a long time I am unable to get up it aches a lot. And also if i am walking a lot after that I am getting a lot of pain.it is getting a little swelling too.What could be the reason.Do I need to meet with orthopedic?
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm an extremely active 26 year old male, and I recently had my fourth knee surgery (third on left knee). The prior surgeries had all been to my medial mensicus, and this fourth surgery was to remove a condral defect I had on the left knee. My doctor told me he saw some roughing of the cartilege. Subsequently, the worst of my pain is gone and my strength is very good, but I still experience fairly considerable pain when most of my weight is on one leg and I bend.
Avatar f tn Hi, 25 yo female. Chronic "flares" of knee pain since infancy. No methods of therapy or NSAIDS seems to help. No diagnosis. i just did this x ray. It looks like narrowing of the patellafemoral space. Is this correct? Thank you for any advice.
Avatar m tn 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? I've been working on the computer all day every day for about 10 years and I'm wondering if that sort of extreme inactivity could have caused this. I'm not overweight (6'1" 180lbs) and I run a mile on the beach once or twice a week. I'm basically trying to prevent a future problem.
Avatar n tn I do have heel spurs which are painful in mornings. My question is why do I have such knee pain if it's not arthritis? Right now I am not in a flareup but my right knee is. Does anyone else have this problem?
Avatar f tn Hi My Osteoarthritis has started 6,7 years ago after an injury in mountain climbing and could manage the pain during those years but during the last couple of months my knee joints became bone on bone , they changed shape and I am horribly in pain, not to know what to do.I am female, 45kg, 30 yrs and have lots of financial problems so visiting a doctor at the moment is not an option for me.what should I do?Please help I cant mange the pain anymore.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry your doctor is making you wait until your Dec appt to get a referral to a pain mgmt doc! Can you get your appt moved up? Ask your pharmacist if there is a pain med that would not cause probs for your kidneys and be compatible with other meds you are taking. Aside from an RX, you might try accupuncture, heat/cold therapies, topical pain relievers or massage to get relief from the pain you are experiencing.
Avatar n tn Pt has pain while walking but it is bearable. Most severe pain is when off weight bearing and interfers with sleep. Any treatment options aside from more meds???
Avatar n tn The pain in your buttock could be a pinched or irritated sciatic nerve, which could be related to the joint paint/cracking. For example, if you have knee pain it changes the way you walk, stand, sit, etc., which can translate to pain elsewhere in the body. If you're taking over the counter analgesics for pain, this could lead to stomach upset and hence your abdominal pain. I urge you to go get checked out by a doctor to be sure, though. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I have similar pain, not directly on my knee but but beside it. It happens when I am changing the kitty litter and kneeling, if I go a little to the side of my knee, it's a sharp, burning? intense pain. other than that, that knee does not bother me at all. I have never had surgery of any kind, I am 56, female, 20 lbs overweight.
Avatar f tn When I first wake up I have a sharp stabbing pain in my knee also trouble bending and straightening them, this can last anywhere between 5mins - 24hours. It does not happen all the time. Does anyone know what coulb be causing this or how I can fix it?
Avatar n tn Hello, It would had been really helpful if you had shared more details about the onset, duration and progression of your symptoms and any other associated symptoms.Arthritis,meniscal tear,osteoarthritis.,bursitis,tendonitis,Bakers cyst all can cause knee pain. In mild to moderate injuries which cause knee pain the condition often heals on their own over a period of time. Give your knee rest for few days an avoid strenous activities.
Avatar n tn I'm a 29 year old male. In 2006 I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee after an exam by an Orthropedic Doctor. He is a very fine doctor and very smart. The problem is that now many joints are hurting. My knuckles (on fingers not on hands), my elbows and both of my knees are hurting. It's been going on for about a 3 days. My elbows just started hurting then. I have a family history of RA. My doctor told me that the knee he looked at was for sure Osteoarthritis.
1378884 tn?1315509445 I am also a hashimotos survivor and am concerned that it may be having an impact on my knees which have done things over the years that no one of my size should have done. It's mostly confined to my left knee. I have broken both knee caps in the past, (car accident and Karate Class) had a meniscus tear repaired, which made left knee much worse. Hands and feet are fine.
1348765 tn?1276657634 My weight is about 250, recently I fell onto the sidewalk taking the full brunt onto my left knee. The pain was unbearable at first. I did go to my Ortho and was told that I had more than likely injured my bursa. It has been nearly 4 months now and I have no pain while walking or bending but when I kneel on the knee it is as if I am kneeling on tacks, very painful. Any ideas on how long a bursa takes to heal or may it be something different?
Avatar f tn Okay so I'm 22 years old and have been suffering with sever knee pain for a few years now. Arthritis runs in my family and my grandma has had both her knees replaced twice and my mother is only 43 and has her knees replaced already. They both have osteoarthritis and my father has rheumatoid arthritis.

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!
