Osteoarthritis neck trauma

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis neck trauma


408795 tn?1324939275 I have extensive Osteoarthritis in my upper back and neck from an accident I was in over 20yrs ago. I had an accident and I broke my right leg and my left arm. As a result my right leg is slightly bowed and therefore around a half inch shorter than my left leg. As a result it has affected my back and neck. Lately my legs have been swelling and itching, mostly the left. I certainly feel it's all related to my right leg injury.
Avatar n tn 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. Furthermore, he does not feel it necessary to do any further testing to rule out underlying causes. My doctor is generally a bright guy. I like him, great doctor.

Avatar f tn New study proves that pain is not a symptom of osteoarthritis, pain causes arthritis Pain is more than a symptom of osteoarthritis, it is an inherent and damaging part of the disease itself, according to a study published September 29* in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism. link to article: http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?
Avatar m tn The pain is caused by irritation or injury to the nerves, which can be the result of trauma to the back of the head, pinching of the nerves by overly tight neck muscles or compression of the nerve as it leaves the spine due to osteoarthritis. Treatment usually includes physiotherapy of the neck, neck massage, local anesthetic or steroid nerve blocks and medications which are used for nerve related pain (e.g Neurontin).
Avatar n tn It lasted intensely for a week or so and then back to my daily dizzy feeling. Six weeks ago I started having bad neck pain. I do not recall a specific injury but I have been seeing a chiropractor. We reviewed the dizzy feeling that I constantly have and so far the treatments have not helped the dizzy. The sharp neck pain has let up, but I do feel an ache inside my neck that goes up to the base of my head. And 2 days ago woke with the bad migraine headache and the severe dizzy is back!
Avatar f tn The chiropractor took the x-ray diagnosed me and said usually it's due to some trauma. I have not had a trauma. I do however have an autoimmune disorder. Elevated ana 1:1280, etc. But I'm curious I guess I find the OA in my neck puzzeling. Can it be related? I have lots and lots of other joint pain and sometimes swelling over the years. Diagnosed with RA at 17, but undx with it later b/c they said I didn't have the joint deformities associated with it.

Avatar n tn I have the cracking of the neck to and I know it is arthritis, I used to do the collanetics neck exersises, I guess it did work, if you have any additrional information about this please let me know. Also I wont get into details because it is a long story, but about 10 yrs ago 51 yrs old,I had a terrible ear infection and my neck cracking, they got me in Antibiotis and it did not help.
Avatar f tn This can be associated with osteoarthritis or past trauma. We have capsules around our joints that contain fluid. If we stretch these capsules the fluid will then put less pressure on the joint and this less pressure turns the fluid into gas. When this happens, it will make a popping sound. Others believe it is a bubble created in the capsule. That's the mechanics of the sound. https://www.healthline.com/health/neck-cracking#how-it-works. Is it okay to have this?
748543 tn?1463449675 ” Treating hundreds of patients including those with TMJ pain and all kinds of neck or cervical neuralgia, over the past 15 years in my Clinic at Miami Beach Dentistry, I have come to see this connection first hand. The body works as a complex unit, and when trying to treat it all parts need to be addressed based on their own merit. What does this mean? I’ll elaborate.
774736 tn?1311334985 You presented with neck pain and dizziness, so the x-ray neck was done to check for any vertebral and spine issues like spondylolisthesis or slipping of vertebrae due to degeneration or trauma, disc herniation (better visualized on MRI spine), osteoarthritis or trauma. All these can cause nerve root impingement and compression symptoms like tingling, numbness and dizziness due to the spinal canal stenosis.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
Avatar n tn Since then I am having trouble with pain in the neck and shoulder area just below the fusion area. I wake in the morning with a headache then turns to pain in lower neck and shoulders. I have talked to the neurosurgeon who did the surgery and he shrugged his shoulders and said I have no idea and sent me back to my neurologist. He gave me a series of injections in both shoulders and the pain stopped for a couple days but then came right back.
Avatar f tn Low back pain could be due to a lumbar disc prolapse, degenerative disc disease and slipping of vertebra due to degeneration or trauma. Neck pain also needs investigation for cervical degenerative disc disease and cervical osteoarthritis. An MRI spine is needed to check for possible diagnosis. You could take over the counter NSAIDS in the meanwhile. Consult a neurologist for appropriate diagnosis. Wish you best of luck.
Avatar m tn recently i have started getting very sharp pains in my right hand, I've had no trauma.
Avatar f tn The pain in occipital neuralgia can be caused by irritation or injury to the nerves, which can be the result of trauma to the back of the head, pinching of the nerves by overly tight neck muscles, compression of the nerve as it leaves the spine due to osteoarthritis, tumors or other types of lesions in the neck. Treatment of this condition is generally symptomatic and includes massage and rest.
Avatar n tn The common ear related causes include infection of the middle or internal ear, eustachian tube dysfunction, trauma to the tympanic membrane, abscess, mastoiditis, etc. The earache may also be caused as a referred pain, meaning the pathology lies in some other region. Some of these include dental disorders, sinusitis, temporomandibular joint dysfunctions, neck problems and osteoarthritis.

Avatar m tn Wide spread body pain is manifested in many conditions like neck pain syndrome, low back pain, local tendonitis, trauma-related pain syndromes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoarthritis of the knee or hand, and other painful disorders. These patients have some symptoms that mimic fibromyalgia.
Avatar f tn The point of this short story and my synopsis which is definitely unscientific based on my personal experience is too much neck and shoulders trauma,added with my headers,bad sitting and using my tablets and pc for too long has contributed to a degeneration of my articulated movement in the neck .
450140 tn?1317950904 I know from older scans, that I have a bad disc in my neck and in my back. No injuries, so does this have anything to do with MS, or is it totally a seperate issue? My doc is on vacation, or I would have spoke to him about it.
1369383 tn?1299027161 More commonly known as neck arthritis, this is a condition caused due to wear of the joints, or onset of osteoarthritis, which could also be aggravated due to wrong neck postures. Often, there is formation of bone spurs, which leads to nerve compression or pinching.
Avatar m tn I have been having pain in the bones- hips, back, neck, ribs, shoulders,elbow, on and off since last 12 yrs. Earlier i tried homeopathy, allopathy, physiotherapy , ayurvedic treatment - all based on symptomatic diagnosis but all in vain. I got all tests done for rheumatoid arthritis and spondilytis but that was negative. The pain in general has increased in recent times. I dont know what is the cause and need assistance in this.
Avatar f tn MRI of my upper back(small area of mild osteoarthritis), MRI of my neck, MRI of my brain, EEG, No Lupus, No Lyme, No Thyroid problem. I have a pain management/spinal doctor and a neurologist. I had an epidural (cortisone ) treatment which was excrutiating and actually caused my pain to worsen.I am on Lyrica, Mobic, Baclofen(to help me sleep) and pain meds that we are still trying to find the right one to manage my pain and allow me to function.
Avatar f tn ever had any trauma to the head or neck.......yes u have!! let me know how u make out....geta MRI of the brain w/wo contrast and a MRI of ur cervical spine, lombar, and (not sure of the name) mid section so the whole spine!! be sure to mention the accidents u had to the dr.
1245842 tn?1287833651 Trauma can cause FM but I would rule out other possibilities as well. Get mri's of ur whole back to see if sum of ur problems srem from spinal issues. Also, get several opinions from different drs. Best of luck to u hun!!!!

Avatar f tn For several years I can remember experiencing an occasional crackling sound at the base of my skull right where the head pivots at the back of my neck. It was annoying at first - coming and going every so often. I figured it to be stressed muscles causing this strange sound - yet I always wondering. It sounds like small pieces of bone grinding together - not harshly to the point of pain - just annoyance and bewilderment.
