Avatar n tn I was sent to a Rheumatologist and they ran tests for lyme, HIV, RA, sed rate, etc. everything came back negative? I was basically diagnosed as having somekind of sudden onset of arthritis, probably RA, given vioxx and pregnisone and sent on my way. I finally got on enbrel in 2002 and it worked real well but about a year ago its effectiveness wore off. I forgot to leave out that not to soon after this all happened i developed atrial fibrilation and was put on beta blockers.

Avatar n tn I will answer your concerns to the best of my abilities, but please be informed that I am unable to offer a diagnosis based on your history and list of symptoms. I am extremely limited in not having the opportunity to perform a full neurologic examination on you, nor am I able to review the pertinent imaging. This is solely for educational purposes and should in no way be a substitute for a formal evaluation by a certified physician.
Avatar n tn As far as periomenopause, it sounds like this shouldn't happen so suddenly and usually the elasticity is after menopause. I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
Avatar f tn I also have glaucoma (onset @ 40yrs) and osteoarthritis (onset at 31 years). I've recently tested positive for allergies to wheat, barley, cows milk, cheese, eggs, chocolate, mustard, night shades, blueberries, clams, haddock and a host of other wonderful foods. Graves disease, diabetes, glaucoma and osteoarthritis all run in my family~ every generation but, they seem to hit harder every other generation. I am now fat bald AND have a bad do! Can it get worse?
Avatar f tn As many others seem to be, I am frustrated and worried by a group of symptoms that are undiagnosed yet really messing up my life. Here's the symptoms: severe edema in feet/ankles/calves (sudden onset three weeks ago), constant (and loud!) ear ringing, blurry vision, dizziness, wheezing (high-pitched, whistling sounds) and headache. The edema becomes so bad it's hard to walk. Possibly useful background facts: I know I am pre-diabetic, with fairly severe osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.

Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Eagles in March of 2006 after going to 2 ENT doctors and having my tonsils removed because they thought it was some kind of cyst or tumor in my tonsils. My symptoms were the foreign object in the throat feeling, trouble swallowing, food getting stuck in my throat, sore throat 24/7, voice changes. After they removed my tonsils the previous December, I still got food stuck in my throat a couple months later and I still felt the huge lump in my throat...

Avatar n tn I have had so many symptoms over such a long period of time, and no real diagnosis other than Hashimoto's. I find it hard to believe everything is not connected. Here are my symptoms presented in order of appearance. 1. Traveled out of country, was very sick with sore throat, white blisters, for over a month. Finally got over it with antibiotics. Now I get sinus infections regularly. 2. Joint pain started in legs. I have had this intense pain in my legs (and sometimes arms) for six years now.
Avatar n tn Hi Sebastiandelacroix- I am having some of the same symptoms as you and am wondering what it is also. I am interested in knowing if you have some of the others I have had...along with the involuntary twitching in my legs and numbness and tingling in my arms and hands I have had fatigue and migraines. My doc put me on a heart medication for my migraines and they have subsided for the most part but now the twitching and arm/hand probs have arisen.
Avatar f tn I began to think, maybe the source of my pain is not down to adhesions after all but my Gp believes I am having pain from the adhesions pulling on nerves after years of multiple surgeries for endo and adhesions complicated by the Diverculitis Disease and worse still from onset of osteoarthritis in my hips and right knee - great! Gp is trying me on Lyrica a nerve block for pain which so far slightly dulls the pain but it is still very much there but I will keep trying.
Avatar m tn Fast onset, lasting time 40s-2min. Sense of time is altered, hard to concentrate or focus/answer simple questions. Environment around seems to spin slowly back and forth but no feelings of nausea. Hard to navigate direction i.e. when walking through doorways may cling to one side and bump shoulder. Objects feel closer or further away than they really are. Somewhat similar to the view of a "fish eye lense" on cameras. Able to hold balance and not likely to fall even walking.
Avatar f tn The doctors office called several days ago and said the MRI showed degenerative arthritis (that's also known as Osteoarthritis). I did some research and although I do not believe this explains the symmetry of joint pain, the onset, the fevers and fatigue, I have no other explanation. I am 43 years old and until about four years ago have been either slightly under weight or on the slim side; low blood pressure; low cholesterol; very active.
Avatar n tn Hello, It would had been really helpful if you had shared more details about the onset, duration and progression of your symptoms and any other associated symptoms.Arthritis,meniscal tear,osteoarthritis.,bursitis,tendonitis,Bakers cyst all can cause knee pain. In mild to moderate injuries which cause knee pain the condition often heals on their own over a period of time. Give your knee rest for few days an avoid strenous activities.
Avatar f tn Osteoarthritis of the SC joint usually responds to treatments such as rest, ice, physical or occupational therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications. If the symptoms of osteoarthritis do not respond to basic treatment over six to 12 months, surgery may be considered, but it is rarely, if ever indicated. If the swelling is not at the SC joint, but rather at the joints between the sternum and ribs, there is another consideration, Tietze Syndrome.

Avatar f tn I also have diffuse osteoarthritis in all joints and spine. Is this typical with Sjogrens? Do SSB and SSA autoantibodies change from year to year with sjogrens? Could something else be causing my symptoms? My eyes are a little dry (scratchy), but is is not as bad as my other symptoms. . Each rheumatologoist I saw said somethiong different. (One said Osteoarthritis, another said sjogrens, and the third (who just gave me a consultation) said possible connective tissue disease.
Avatar n tn I've had this knee pain (left and right) for almost a yr already. The symptoms are as follows: Grinding / grating sensation upon flexing the knee. Aching pain at and below the patella. Difficulty straightening the knee. Pain is most servere when putting weight or pressure on it. Pain can be felt when climbing up the stairs, jumping, running and standing for prolonged periods. In addition, pain can be felt behind the knee cap.
Avatar f tn -Joint pain and progressive stiffness without noticeable swelling, chills, or fever during normal activities probably indicates the gradual onset of osteoarthritis. -Painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness in the fingers, arms, legs, and wrists occurring in the same joints on both sides of the body, especially on awakening, may be signs of rheumatoid arthritis.
Avatar f tn I did not have any type of accident prior to the onset of this pain. At times the pain and ability to move are almost impossible. There are also times that the nerves in my entire body are over sensitive to any kind of touch. I have seen a nuerologist, poditrist and internal medical doctor. None has offered any help. They tell me it is just aging. MRIs to my back showed a slight narrowing around the spinal cord.
Avatar n tn My father, his sister, his mother and her aunt all had Rheumatoid Arthritis. My father's was Juvenile Onset and he passed in 05 due to complications. In 2006 my right knee started hurting. I finally went to see an Orthopedic doctor. After an x-ray and feeling the top of my knee he said "You have Osteoarthritis in your knee. It is definately not RA." Well just a couple of months ago my other knee started with the same problems. Just pain mostly.

Avatar n tn Do you feel radiation of pain to your fourth and fifth digits? Is there swelling in elbow joint also? Have you noticed any weight loss or systemic symptoms, such as flushing or fever? Do you ever experience any locking or clicking in your elbow? Have you taken anything for the pain, and has it helped? Is there any grating when you move your elbow? I think an imaging study of involved elbow joints will help in coming closer to diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Routine X-ray examinations of my back and hip found a left-hip pathology, the onset of osteoarthritis. My doctor thinks this could account for my symptoms, via an entrapped nerve in that left-hip region.
