Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis risk fractures


Avatar m tn How to Avoid Osteoporosis Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased susceptibility to fractures, especially of the hip, spine and wrist, although any bone can be affected. In simpler terms, osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become weak and can break from a minor fall or, in serious cases, from a simple action such as a sneeze.
Avatar n tn my bones ache enough thank you very much...stress fractures? we don't need no stinkin stress fractures!
Avatar n tn Prolia (denosumab) is used to help in the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis for women at high risk of fractures. Phentermine is an appetite suppressant that is used together with diet and exercise to treat obesity. If you are overweight, losing some weight will make you feel better, but necessarily stop the arthritic pains. Keep a food diary of what you consume and see if there is a pattern of what you have eat whether you feel worse. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Fluoridation and Tea Don’t Mix, Studies Continue to Show Fluoridation puts tea drinkers at risk of damaged bones, discolored teeth and soft tissue harm, studies show. Tea has naturally high fluoride levels. Excess fluoride can weaken bones and discolor children’s un-erupted teeth. When fluoridated water is used to make tea, fluoride levels consumed can be health damaging. Four cups, of 20 teas sampled, delivered 0.8 to 1.
Avatar n tn With a serious accident, osteoporosis or other causes of weakened vertebral bones, vertebral fractures in the lumbar spine may also occur. Chronic lower back pain usually has a more insidious onset, occurring over a long period of time. Physical causes may include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, degeneration of the discs between the vertebrae, or a spinal disc herniation, a vertebral fracture I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
1715986 tn?1309369137 I had a ruptured spleen, several broken ribs, a chipped shoulder and multiple compound fractures to my right leg and ankle. I had exploratory abdominal surgery because the physician believed my liver was damaged. Thank God it was not and I had my spleen removed that night, and my leg was splinted and ignored due to the life threatening ruptured organ. After a few days in ICU I underwent multiple surgeries to repair my mangled right leg.
Avatar n tn I'm sure you are aware that if that has not been done she may still be at a high risk for additional falls. Has her general health been good up till these falls? Does she have osteoporosis? Osteoporosis-related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist or spine. As we age we are at higher risk for developing Osteoporosis. At 74 she is not "old" in years by medical standards however as we age we can be more prone to pain from multiple sources. Does she has Arthritis (R.A.
717272 tn?1277594380 I had a bone scan that had shocking results in October, verging on osteoporosis. At 57 and only a few years past menopause I did not have enough risk factors to justify it and connected it to treatment (finished 9 mos. ago). I figured it was caused by a year of chronic diarrhea from Boceprevir and interferon stopping what estrogen production I still had after menopause.
2106457 tn?1333924567 If it wasn't broken bones and other such things when young it is severe osteoarthritis. He had a stroke a year ago. A month ago he fell and fractured his ankle. I must add he had taken a great deal of hydrocodone and Xanax in a 3 day period prior to the fall, whether depressed from the stroke or memory probes prevented him remembering how much he had taken, is all in question.
2126606 tn?1346348724 It’s become a trend in this country for medical professionals to write prescriptions for hydrocodone drugs too quickly, which is creating an epidemic of these drugs being overprescribed to patients who often times don’t need them. This puts patients at risk for developing serious, and even fatal, health issues. Last year at the WAISMANN METHOD®and Domus Retreat, we treated about the same number of patients for addictions to Norco as we did for Heroin, OxyContin or methadone.
15695260 tn?1549596713 Skipping the proper footwear or running in shoes past their prime can cause a wealth of issues such as discomfort, pain and injuries such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, irritated nerves or the loss of a toenail, warned Dr. Christina Rowe-Bauer, a podiatrist with Penn State Health Sports Medicine. A good pair of running shoes can make all the difference. https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?

1243848 tn?1268463672 I will repeat my story at the risk of boring our long time members in hopes that it will give you hope and know that there are answers out there for you. For over ten years I struggled with chronic pain. No specialist, no PCP could determine the source. It was all in my head or I was a drug seeker. "Learn to live with it" I heard dozens of times. I gave up. I quit complaining. The PCP I had had for several years and didn't like left the clinic.
Avatar n tn I would NOT go straight from Vicodin to Ultram without giving your body a chance to totally detox from the Vicodin because it may cause some withdrawal symptoms. I think Ultram is definitely a lesser risk than Vicodin for a person who has chronic pain. Unfortunately, I think Ultram does cause drowsiness but I am not sure how that compares with the drowsiness caused by Vicodin. Melanie, R.N.
Avatar n tn The good news, from what I understand, is that after the bone heals up properly (which they say can take months), things should be mostly back to normal, although there is a slightly higher risk of back problems in the future. You need to be careful to NOT go to a chiropractor initially (I made that mistake). After the bone has healed, then the chiropractor will probably be beneficial, as will some physical therapy to get some strength and flexibility back.
Avatar n tn also, if a child or other person who is opiate-naive handles it, it can kill them with one exposure. it was not worth the terrible risk, in my humble opinion. I was on it for a couple of months and found I would fall asleep (nod off) at traffic lights, while talking with someone at work...crazy! I worried I would not wake up in the morning and my daughter would have the horror of finding me dead in bed.
Avatar n tn I have bulging discs and osteoarthritis and the avascular necrosis. The hip pain has been the worst of what I have experienced. The Dr's tell me having my hips replaced will cure most of the pain. I am now bone on bone , no cartiledge with cysts. I am just worried I have waited too long as now I have lost my muscle tone am not able to exercise at all now, sleeping more than an hour or so at a time is not possible most nights. My legs have a weird feeling now are numb and my feet and tingle.
Avatar n tn Now to top it all off my job is at risk they have told me that if i can't come back 100% then i no longer have a job with them. My job requires me to look up for long periods of time I am a smoke and fire tech. removing smoke and odor from burned homes. It also requires alot of heavey lifting. I am in a panic. any words of wisdom? Thanks, P.J.
Avatar n tn so vegetarians r at risk.. symptoms include general fatigue,bony aches especially back pain..general malaise,depression,lack of motivation....sound on holding ur hands together and then suddenly extending or sound on turning ur head from side to side can be caused by this due to microstress fractures....
Avatar n tn How can I save what’s left of my name by proving that I didn’t do any illegal drugs. I would never risk loosing K. I do anything and everything for him. I do all the cooking and all of the cleaning and iron his clothes when we go out, wash and dry his work uniforms and all the laundry and towels. I am in serious love with this man and I have no doubt that he is the one I want to be with for the rest of my days here on earth. I want him to believe me when I say I haven’t done PCP.
