Avatar f tn Hi! I have just got my results of my MRI and apparently I have Osteoarthritis. I was diagnosed a few months ago with complete sholder instability and was told I was going to have surgery.

I have another appointment with my orthopedic doctor on October 14th so im sure I will find out what will happen then but do you have an idea on what surgey I might have?
Avatar n tn No one said anything about arthritis at that time. I had a spine MRI performed in late March. Now all of the sudden I'm riddled with arthritis, and the degeneration is compressing discs and nerves. My Orthopedist seems to feel that the arthritis is not related to the wreck. It's my understanding that trauma to any joints can lead to the onset of arthritis. I have never had the kind of problems I'm having until after the accident.

Avatar m tn Hey, My hubby has been diagnosed (with MRI) with severe osteoarthritis is his jaw. My question is.....could excess/regular use of alcohol worsen the symptoms?

1459410 tn?1285698605 I have tried acupuncture, which I thought helped some, herbal heat pack, ice, valium, ibuprofen and wear a flat-planed splint for my jaw osteoarthritis. I recently got an MRI after years of suffering and learned about disc displacement, one of them displaced all the time and it's torn. Pool exercise might help you some if they are joints that go underwater. And if you have knee arthritis, I saw on tv where I scientific study was done proving acupuncture can be a help.

Avatar n tn It would be unlikely for osteoarthritis to present with this many symptoms. You may want to look at a more systemic disorder - including rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus or other rheumatological disease. Blood tests looking at the ANA level and rheumatoid factor can be considered. Imaging the spine with an MRI can be done to evaluate for any nerve compression. A referral to a rheumatologist can be considered to evaluate for the aforementioned conditions.
454422 tn?1211419425 ) Although the prevalence of Baker cysts in patients with inflammatory arthritis is higher than in patients with osteoarthritis, osteoarthritis is much more common than inflammatory arthritis. Using ultrasonography, Fam and colleagues found that 21 of 50 patients (42%) with osteoarthritis had Baker cysts.5 Bilateral cysts were seen in 8 patients (16%). The occurrence of Baker cysts relates directly to the presence of knee effusion and the severity of the osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn The report describes changes in the knee morphology which may be indicative of osteoarthritis or prolonged inflammation causing synovial proliferation. The treatment is initially conservative with rest, physiotherapy and painkillers followed by active physiotherapy. In cases not responding to treatment, joint replacement may be an option.

Avatar m tn Then, my knees would just ache pretty much chronically. Finally, I visited an orthopedic surgeon as suggested by my wonderful PCP. We did an X-Ray, MRI, and blood work. X ray showed some damage but nothing significant. I have never had any trauma to my knees by the way. The MRI showed that I didn't have much cartilage in my right knee. Blood work came back negative for possible diagnoses like Rheumatoid Arthritis (RF level was normal).
Avatar f tn This is what my MRI findings said and I do not understand. Can anyone help me? This is all because my right leg has been in severe continuous pain for over 3 years and I have to stand to do my job.

1069378 tn?1255218732 , but my knee never healed and in fact the pain has spread to other parts of my knee and my knee swells very easily when I do anything (upright, sitting, sleeping). The MRI shows that my lateral meniscus is torn again and x-rays show I have osteoarthritis. One of the orthopedic surgeons I saw suggested trying Synvisc injections before resorting to surgery, especially since the surgery will involve removing the rest of my lateral meniscus which will in turn worsen the osteoarthritis.
Avatar n tn Also my neck pops really loudly now, and my shoulder burns and feels heavy. I had a cervical MRI in Sept 2005. My doctor (work comp) said it was normal but put me in PT. This has relieved only the tenseness in the muscles. On my therapy note I saw my Dx was cervical DJD. My question is would he Dx me with this if MRI was normal, and could this be causing the sharp pains or is it more likely continuing nerve damage? And could it also be DJD in my elbow causing the horrific pain in it?
Avatar n tn The past 6 months it has been unbearable. I am under the care of a Pain Management Dr. who sent me for an MRI. I am not clear on the results and would appreciate an understandable explanation. He has given me shots that have somewhat helped, I am still having numbness down my right arm and hand. What is your advice? Do I have to continue living with the pain? MRI: C5-C6: Broad disc osteophyte complex, eccentric to the right, creating mild central canal stenosis.
