Osteoarthritis of ac joint

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis of ac joint


Avatar n tn I had an x-ray done on my shoulder before I saw the doctor, and before he even felt my shoulder he said that the x-ray is showing a prominent area on my AC joint (right at the end of my collarbone) and said that it is presenting itself as a mass. He said without further imaging he cannot tell me the kind of mass that it is. He said that when we know what it is we can discuss options for removal and do testing on it to see the type of mass (benign, malignant, cystic legion, ect).
192055 tn?1263559137 took one of my neck muscles and wrapped it around my collarbone and rib to hold it in place, to make my SC joint a stable joint. The surgery went well- as in it IS a stable joint.... ALTHOUGH I am having some complications. I have to go back to the doctor to get some xrays and mri's done... I have some clicking in my SC joint. My physical therapist thinks that it could be my bones rubbing together...
Avatar f tn IMPRESSIONS : 1. Severe glenohumeral joint osteoarthritis with resultant degenerative circumferential fraying/tearing of the labrum with concomitant posterior subluxation of the humeral head at the articulation indicative of posterior instability. 2. Chronic rupture of the long head biceps tendon. 3. Mild-moderate rotator cuff tendinopathy which appears greatest in severity within the anterior distal fibers of the supraspinatus tendon. 4. Mild-moderate AC joint degenerative change. 5.
Avatar n tn The acromioclavicular (AC) joint in the shoulder is a common spot for osteoarthritis to develop in middle age. Degeneration of the AC joint can be painful and can cause difficulty using the shoulder for everyday activities. I also believe that your Knee can be affected in the same way. Arthroscopic Distal Clavicle Excision VideoSome joints in the body are more likely to develop problems from normal wear and tear. Degeneration causes the cartilage that cushions the joint to wear out.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.
Avatar n tn 10 mm seperation of the right acromioclaviicular joint, secondary to right AC joint seperation, with secondary mild superior invagination of the right supraspinatus muscle. There is undulated course of thin right acromial coracoid ligament with suggestive change of tear in the proximal and distal ends. I did have my clavical operated on due to osteolysis.
Avatar f tn Moderate acromioclavicular joint osteoarthritis with productive changes. 2. Acromion is of Type I configuration. 3. Slightly increased risk for impingement. 4. Likely bursal sided partial thickness tearing of the supraspinatus tendon with concomitant supraspinatus tendinopathy. 5. Cyst within the supraspinatus tendon-muscle complex fiber likely post traumatic in etiology. 6. No significant supraspinatus muscle atrophy. 7.
Avatar m tn Correlate for any history of recent trauma along this region. The AC joint or Acromioclavicular joint, is a joint at the top of the shoulder - your MRI shows edema in the bone marrow, which would be normal and expected with an injury of the shoulder - in addition to mild degenerative changes. If you are over 45-50 get use to that "ugly term" degenerative changes - it means our parts are getting older, worn and degenerating. PT is the normal treatment for your condition.
Avatar f tn I was reading up about it last night and one of the side effects that is concerning me in particular is joint pain. I have arthritis in lumbar 5 and 6 of my spine, arthritis in my knees and also no cartlidge in my knees also. Also 5 weeks after AC x 4 cycles finished I developed a stiffness in my hips if sitting for a period of time.
Avatar m tn Mild fraying of the longhead bicep tendon / Mild fraying of the Labrum / Mild scuffing of the rotator cuff / Osteoarthritis to the shoulder joint. But I have been fine for the last 3 years and resumed normal gym work...
Avatar f tn Generalized osteoarthritis is yet another subset of osteoarthritis. Most people know the meaning of primary osteoarthritis or secondary osteoarthritis, but generalized osteoarthritis is a lesser known term. Answer: Subsets of Osteoarthritis Primary osteoarthritis is characterized by joint pain, stiffness, limited range of motion, and weakness. Primary osteoarthritis is also referred to as idiopathic, meaning, there is no known underlying or predisposing cause.
Avatar m tn he gave me a subacromial injection of cortisone. 2cc of lidocaine,2cc of marcaine, and 80 mg of depo-medrol. within five minutes i could raise my shoulder. i did exercise band work from an exercise sheet everyday till i saw him again after 25 days. my shoulder is much better, but i still have level 1 pain. before the injection it was level 8-9.
931217 tn?1283484935 [86-89] Hip dysplasia is estimated to lead to clinically significant arthritis is fewer than 5% of affected dogs, but there are many factors involved including breed, weight, and the degree of anatomic abnormality of the hip joint, which makes predicting the outcome for any individual difficult.[89] The incidence of hip dysplasia is most strongly associated with breed and family history.[86,90,91]. Some studies have identified neutering as increasing the risk of hip dysplasia.[86,92].
Avatar n tn I have been going to see a sports therapist once a week and he has said that there is more than three things wrong with each shoulder and there is also pain coming from the ac joint. I am never not in pain with my shoulders and back, can't sleep propely becasue i keep waking up because of the pain.
Avatar f tn I see him more often, and it seems that my GP doesn't want to deal with it anyway. I have carpal tunnel, de'querveins, osteoarthritis in right shoulder (injured) w/AC joint damage and rotator cuff was partially torn a few years ago, migraine (severe), vision and balance problems (had ENG). Suffering. I guess that would describe me. I am at my wits end trying to cope with this stuff. I take Hydrocodone 7.5-500 APAP once a day, but really need it at least 2 times a day.
Avatar f tn Osseous Acromial Outlet: AC joint is intact. Type II acromion with subtle anterior spurring slightly narrowing the subacromion outlet. Small amount of fluid is seen in the subacromion bursa. Rotator Cuff: 3 mm interstitial tear at the midportion of the subscapularis best seen on axial image 13. No tendon thickening. No full-thickness retracted tear or muscle atrophy. Biceps and Labrum: Biceps is well positioned in the bicipital groove. No obvious labral tear.
Avatar n tn I sleep with the AC on under a ceiling fan which is nothing new so the idea of my body tempature rising does not make sense unless it is a delayed reaction from the day before. I have been riding my motorcycle to work and it is very hot here in Houston so my body tempature does rise during the day. I mentioned the motorcycle riding to my Dr. and told him there is minimal vibration and he didn't think it had anything to do with it.
Avatar m tn Still waiting on PCR results but liver enzymes were normal.) I do have joint pains, like many of us, but none of the other symptoms I read that are associated with Rheumatoid arthritis. Any feedback would be much appreciated. I am discouraged and worried. Miss talking to you all daily--am w/o computer for now.
Avatar f tn After being told I had a ganglion cyst in the acetabulum, possibly torn labrum in the hip joint and osteoarthritis I was told I needed hip replacement, another doc then said he could fix the problem with arthroscopic surgery and bone graft. Had surgery Dec 2006 - not a great experience, could write a book titled 'never have surgery on Friday afternoon' but that's another story! Have not been able to walk well since the surgery - lots of pain in both legs - upper thighs and groin and knees.
529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
Avatar n tn I can be perfectly still and all of a sudden I am so hot I can't stand it (even in the ac and with fans blowing directly on me), I sweat profusely on my face, neck, and breast line. I am at a loss for what to do, or who to go to. It is like the dr. thinks I am exaggerating. At the time this is happening my skin feels clammy.
211940 tn?1267884866 Went to PT but wasn't getting better. I had an MRI yesterday with preliminary results being mild arthritis of the AC Joint. I have yet to talk to my dr.
Avatar f tn After visiting nearly half a dozen doctors and none of them knew what I had. Conclusion is that this is more nutrition and this is probably why doctors can't figure it out because they aren't nutritionists. And so I started experimenting with vitamins and health activities. Here's how I solved my chill problems. 1. 8-9 Hours of sleep at night. Sleep somewhat relates to my chills because I was often tired when it hits. 2. Well fed.
Avatar n tn I was put on B12 for a year to see if it could reverse any possible nerve ending damage but apparently if not reversed on this then it is something further than nerve endings, it was suggested by the neurologist it is damage at the core of my nervous system but no-one knows. I noticed a lady put some-thing about joint pains. Strangely for a year leading up to this I had suffered with terrible joint pains that disappeared when this started.
Avatar f tn Today I went for a lower back MRI and had a hard time holding still because of feeling crampy and cold. All of the docs say it is a coincidence that any of my problems started shortly after receiving the implant. I have sent blood in for the Melisa test, but wonder if a reaction will show being I was not able to refrain from using inhalers for five days. The implant has adhered to the bone and looks "perfect".
Avatar n tn My pt said the following to me recently. You have arthritis in the facet joint on your spine. In the middle of the night, those joints freeze up, causing a chain reaction of a muscle spasm and that spasm hits a nerve and that's what the shooting pain is from. So they also suggested many excercises to strengthen my mid back - I work at a computer as well - and the activity to those muscles made it worse and they had to do an ultrasound to calm it down.
Avatar n tn During the summer month my feet swell, (mostly below my knees) red circular dots pop out with joint swelling and of course lots of pain Ive been to lots of doctors nobody could tell me what it is Im curious if this could also be a side effect of U.C or Remicade i hate this because i LOVE the summer i love fishing camping bbq anything that has to do with summer so this is my biggest reason for for having the surgery.
Avatar n tn I have three children to take care of (two of them are babies). I can't take care of myself now because I am "sick" so to speak. I have been completely honest with my husband about this. He agrees that this is probably withdrawal, I need to do "cold turkey" (what choice do I have anyway?) and tough it out for the next week or so. IS THIS WHAT I HAVE TO DO or SHOULD I INVOLVE MY PHYSICIAN WHO PRESCRIBED THESE NASTY DRUGS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Avatar n tn I wonder if any of us have other medical issues in common. I have restless legs syndrome, osteoarthritis, MVP, Barrett's esophagus, eczema. I always have an ache somewhere but seem to have episodes of all over pain. Some days I feel very fuzzy, have had a little bit of a balance problem lately with increased pain in the neck area. I also am having a major problem with TMJ and can't open my jaw enough to eat a sandwich. I'm under chiropractic care for this.
