The condition affects the joints' cartilage, which is slippery tissue at the end of bones. In healthy joints, cartilage allows bones to move smoothly, but osteoarthritis (OA) causes the cartilage to wear away and the bones to rub together, leading to pain and stiffness.
Avatar f tn I have had symptoms that have been increasing over the years. I am now 54 years old and have tried to stay in shape and stay active and have kept my weight down most of my life (has gone up 10 lbs in the last year). I have an elevated ANA-IFA Titer that is 1.16 homogeonous, ELISA normal, normal SED rate, normal thyroid levels, CRP has been elevated in the past but not with my last labs.
786881 tn?1236560228 I have been battling some different symptoms than you for a year and a half. Extreme fatigue (even Epstein-Barr positive), chronic constipation that causes severe pain in my left side and ribs, trouble sleeping, soreness in my armpits and really bad itching on arms, armpits and backs, chronic daily migraines. Your TSH levels are high and the fact you couldn't lose weight is not surprising and that doctor is an idiot. Also, Hashimoto's does affect cholesterol and triglycerides.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed w/ FMS 8 years ago, but have had symptoms for many years before w/out knowing what it was associated with. A month or so ago I was spending the day w/ my daughter out of town. I wore a new pair of boots, and associated a small pain in my left foot as a blister forming. Later in the day I got another pain in the tip of my left middle toe, and also associated that with the new boots.
Avatar n tn (The symptoms will come and go and eventually go away) However, when the symptoms are in a neurological distribution, persist over time, focal, then likely they are not menopause related. So alot depends on the quality and quantity, together with the distribution of the symptoms. Only someone examining you and taking the history will know for sure. Sorry, I can't answer your question better.
783212 tn?1295031606 I have osteoarthritis in my hip, neck and back. I have high blood pressure which has cause problems with my eyes ( hypertensive retinopathy). I get migraines on the left side of my head. My teeth are just breaking apart. I sometimes get a squeezing in my chest and become very light headed. My bowels are horrible. Almost every-other-day I am in the bathroom sick to my stomach. I have insomnia. After working a 15 hour day (two jobs) I am still not able to fall asleep.

1477978 tn?1289505731 Ok! The test numbers were seperate, now bunched together. If anyone can read this, the first numbers are the result and secondary or following numbers are the reference interval. The test basically showed everything normal except the ANA, and I couldn't get anymore info on that (like a titer test). Don't know how that works but I had went back for more tests and they wanted to know why. I told them I'd already gone to three other Dr's for 2nd opinions...
1216899 tn?1288573925 With all the sites out there that have info on Vitamin D, their just doesn't seem to be one that has all the symptoms that can accompany vitamin d deficiency. I'm going to list my symptoms, so that others may have some insight, in layman's terms. I hope anyone else with the deficiency would also post theirs.
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...
623944 tn?1244039090 I have to go back to the neuro after he gets all the results, so I will ask him about it then. Lymphoma can also be the cause of all my symptoms. I use Dove for Sensitive Skin, have switched to Dreft & hypo allergenic dryer sheets for all my clothes & bedding - doesn't seem to make a difference. I have tried oatmeal baths in the past - they only make me itch more! I will look into the Vit E soap. Figure at that price, it can't hurt. Thanks for sharing though. Really do appreciate it!
Avatar n tn I had mine inserted this past Feb. I just started having the exact same symptoms. I am going to take a hpt. Let me know if you find out whats causing your problems.
Avatar f tn Hello All, So, I finally have an MRI scheduled for June 10th 2011, which was only ordered because I had 3 separate incidences of unilateral pupil dilation ranging from 10 minutes to an hour each time - no pain, no weakness, no paralysis - in fact no other symptoms other than my everyday symptoms & these were not worsened during the events (see list below).
Avatar n tn It is extremely sore to touch. It is like there are blisters under the skin but the surface of the skin isn't punctured. It started out with the end of the finger being numb and tingly. Also, a sharp pain radiates from that knuckle to the tip of my finger. Please help, this has been getting worse now for almost 2 weeks with no relief.
Avatar m tn Hello, A clinical examination is very essential for correct diagnosis and treatment of your symptoms. The common causes of your symptoms could possibly be ganglion cysts, rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis and gout. In rheumatoid arthritis there is morning stiffness, joint pains and nodules under the skin. Ganglion cysts arise from the capsule of a joint or the sheath of a tendon.
Avatar n tn I found this thread through a Google search. I am a male in his early 40s with no serious medical conditions. My symptoms are painful skin with no rash or blistering that started about two weeks ago on my upper right front abdomen and right torso and has spread across my front midline. The sensation is much like a "raspberry" of scraped skin. It is mildly to moderately painful, and is very noticeable on my belly where my shirt touches/brushes against my skin.
Avatar m tn You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the symptoms are gone or not. In case the symptoms persist then please consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder. Hope it helps. Take care and regards.
527589 tn?1301681778 Since you have bone spurs, osteoarthritis and cervical stenosis, the symptoms are being aggravated. Please get an MRI of the brain. In fact you may need a series of MRI to diagnose to rule out MS. I think you have not consulted a neurologist so far and that is why you have been made to run around. Please take the MRI reports of brain, pelvic region and spine and consult a good neurologist.
Avatar m tn It's been going on longer, but less noticeable, now since I do not talk sleeping meds any more, it's all that I can notice... Symptoms are strange sensations on my skin. The sensation is it feels like there are "invisible bugs" crawling on, and/or biting my skin. No actual bites, rashes, bugs, sores, or anything of the nature is ever visible. Occurs more at night, while laying down than any other time.
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 nw im thinking if its Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). experts said EDS is a hereditery diesease and symptoms includes loose joints stretchy skin.... these fits my symptoms. but Im more interested to know if there's a possibility for EDS to start at age 29? the series of symptoms r very irritating (not painful) and i can hardly concentrate on what I do. please advise anyone.
Avatar n tn Of course those people do not have these symptoms! I think to all who have experienced these very disturbing symptoms on the heels of therapy, it is very clear and obvious that there is a connection to therapy. The pattern seems to run through at least 35% of the overall post-tx group who took the survey. I would like to see even larger surveys done, across the entire treatment population. I will bet the results are essentially the same.
Avatar f tn She began exercising again and immediately got the burning skin back. Then, it was cold skin, then back to burning. Her joints are now painful and sometimes she has a hard time getting out of bed. She ha been to seven doctors--internist, two neorologists, orthoepedic surgeon, had MRI (no brain issues) no upper back issues, (they did not do an MRI of one portion of the back). She would get better, then worse again. Now her joints are all stiff and the burning is constant.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn 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.
182884 tn?1259316506 Can anyone tell me about this type of injury and have you had this type of injury? What were your symptoms and what did the DR. do? I was told I needed a MRi. Does the MRi confirm this type of injury or other injuries to the knee.? I really appreciate any and all answers as I am a little afraid of what may happen to my knee after all the other problems I am having.
Avatar f tn because I never want to, burning eyes, dry eyes, tired eyes, headaches, congestion, sore throat, dry skin, dry hair, constipation all my life (big issue for me). It's weird because you can touch any part of my body pretty much and it will hurt. My hips, my thighs, my calves, arms, sides, like if someone pokes me, it hurts and I say "ouch". I have been like that for years.
