osteoarthritis

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. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1037175'>Changing from Supartz to Synvisc-One shots</a>.
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.
1176578 tn?1263756689 My question is, could the joint stiffness in the night and mornings be related to osteoarthritis? Or could it be signs of RA? I see my family doc (first check up in 4 years in a couple of weeks) and I'd like to know the right tests to ask for. I am in constant pain despite the pain medication. I have a great job and family, my husband is a tennis teaching pro and my kids and he are fit and slim. I feel I am missing out on so much because my pain and extreme fatigue keeps me sidelined.
Avatar m tn For a few days I could feel something move in the same knee when I would walk down stairs. It felt like it was located to the left (outside) of the center of the knee. That went away. 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.
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.
Avatar m tn I have it on my bad knee. I saw the xray of my knee and could see the cartilage had worn away in part of the knee joint and I could see a little spikey bone sticking down. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, only a replacement of the knee joint if the condition is severe.
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.
Avatar n tn Despite this the symptoms have now spread to my right hip, right shoulder and slight symptoms in my right knee. I get some relief from taking 400mg of Ibuprofen at night so I can sleep. Is there anything else I can do to try to halt the progression of the disease? Or are there any better meds I can take. I am 54yrs old,female and not over weight and physically active.
7486852 tn?1410355784 Yes osteoarthritis can affect any joint in your body. You seem to be having a great deal of pain, in a lot of areas of your body. It may be due to something else. You really need to see a doctor to get a diagnosis. The popping and cracking sounds more than arthritis. It is difficult for us here to make a diagnosis. Don't you think it would be wise to ask for a refferal back to the specialist?
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 f tn Lately I have been dealing with severe pain on the outside bone of my right knee. The pain travels down my leg, this pain is only on the outside right at the side of the knee.
Avatar f tn AS far as the Bakers Cyst goes, I saw nothing at all that looked different behind that knee but I had a great deal of pain especially when I extended my leg. Then, it went away. I have since developed Planters Fasciitis and I have a really bad problem with my right foot. It would seem to me that my Bakers Cysts is once again "acting up" on top of it all. I am having the same pain behind my knee which goes up and down the back of my leg - mostly down.
Avatar m tn Hello. I'm 49 years old and relatively active. I play golf on a regular basis and try to exercise at least a couple times per week. I have not had any other serious medical problems. Over the last couple months I've developed pain in my feet and hands. It started in my feet with the balls of my feet aching and feeling "weak". Not sure if weak is the right term, but they just didn't feel normal. Pain is not severe, but has not gone away.

Avatar f tn Can you tell me if Avascular Necrosis is a form of Arthritis? If so what do you get first Osteoarthritis or Avascular Necrosis?I am 55 years old.
Avatar n tn 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 n tn I was diagnosed with OA and bursitis of the hip 8 years ago. I have flares but for the most part I'm fine. I had another flare a few months ago and started PT. It worked beautifully, until the tech had me running on a treadmill, doing lunges and using tension bands while sidestepping and walking backwards. Everyone else in the PT room was getting ultrasound or icing, meanwhile I felt like I was at a crossfit class.
Avatar f tn I've had problems with my knees for the last couple years that got incredibly worse when I moved into a house with a LOT of stairs. Long story short, after arthroscopic surgery on my right knee (the worst of the 2), my surgeon found an incredible amount of damage...all from osteoarthritis. He said he's never seen such damage in someone my age. I was an incredibly active person and was in the military for 8 years. I have sinced had to quit running and many activities I enjoyed.
Avatar f tn I hve RA in my knees with the right being slightly worse. I've have had cortisone injections which only give relief for a bout a month then the swelling and pain comes back. I also have had ytrium 90 radioactive stuff put in them. This lasted only 3 months. I want to have my knees replaced but I'm not sure they will allow it(I'm only 30). I can bend my Knees about 90 degrees and then they hurt so bad. Will I get full flexion with replacements? Do you suggest gettin it done?
387767 tn?1345875627 The problem is I can't do as much exercise as I would like because of continual pain in my knees, mostly my right knee. I used to do an hour of cardio and light weights 5 times a week. Now because of knee pain I can only do 30 minutes cardio, either on a bike, water aerobics, or swimming with the light weights and stretching. I've been to 3 doctors for my knees. I got 3 different diagnosis. I had an MRI on the right knee.
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!
Avatar f tn Your mother should visit with her doctor to a) determine the cause of the knee pain and b) to review which medication would be right for her to reduce pain.
Avatar m tn Doctors then removed some liquid from right knee and till few days back right leg was fine. But for last 15 days, pain has also started in her right knee.She was continuing feeling some movement and uneasiness in her knees. There is also pain in her ankles and forefoot. These parts normally remain numb. Now both legs have same type of pain and uneasiness. Request you to advice on same.
Avatar n tn Your other symptom of pain while climbing, standing and knee getting sore is suggestive of Osteoarthritis. Your symptom of awakening at night with pain is suggestive Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome or compressive pathology of any nerve. I think you need complete evaluation with help of an orthopaedician and neurologist for likely pathology. You also need thorough imaging study of spine and knee joint. It should include a MRI study too.
Avatar n tn I have pain behind my right knee cap. The pain is most severe when I stretch my right leg by straightening it out. This pain started about 10 days ago while playing basketball. I don't remember a specific injury while playing. The pain just seemed to start. I played through to the end of the game and then quit. The pain subsided after a week or so. I ran 2 miles yesterday pain free during the run, but my knee has become sore today.
Avatar f tn At the same time other causes of knee pain like bursitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis should also be considered .See an orthopaedician.He will examine you and determine if X-rays are needed or not. Take some over the counter analgesic. That may help. Do write to me again with more details. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn If it was due to your new mattress, I would have thought that both knees would be affected. It could be a ligament or cartilage problem or displacement of the knee cap or even arthritis. There are other medical conditions that can cause knee pain. Do you suffer from gout at all, is the knee inflamed and red or just painful? I would advise you see your doctor for a proper diagnosis. Your doctor may refer you for xray. I have osteoarthritis in both knees, but my right knee is the worst.
Avatar m tn When I touch it, what feels like a bone just above and to the left of the kneecap pops out a little bit. My right knee (which is fine) does something similar but much more subtle and I can't feel it unless I'm actually touching it. I'm not really experiencing pain, but whenever a do a lot of exercise my left knee gets a bit sore or more sore than my right.
Avatar f tn Potential postoperative problems with knee arthroscopy include infection, blood clots, and an accumulation of blood in the knee. These occur infrequently and are minor and treatable. http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?
