Osteoarthritis symptoms toe

Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis symptoms toe


Avatar f tn I recently went to my PCP to find out if I had Hypothyroid disease, and got alot more than I bargained for. I was just diagnosed (via x-ray) with osteoarthritis in my large toe (left foot). I have had two surgeries on that foot (for a bunion) back in the 1980's. The joint in my toe has been swollen and it's very painful to walk. I also got what the doctor termed as a positive result for an ANA test. All he said was that the sedimentation rate was something like 1:300 - what does that mean?
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.
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.
1477978 tn?1289505731 Pain in one toe since my teens and deformation staring in my mid fifties on that toe and one more toe as of the past year. I have had bad back most of my adult life but having had Chiropractic treatment since the age of 19, it has been a blessing. Have herniated disks. Had very painful, heavy and long lasting mestrual periods since the age of 12 till my 40s and my periods lasted till the age of 54-55. My mother died of breast cancer at the age of 42 and my father of prostate cancer at 85.
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 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).
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 She can move her toes, but they tingle and are numb. 2 toes are swollen, and she has a black spot on the side of her big toe. Any idea what may cause this, and advice on if she should get it seen right away? She has a doctor appointment in 3 days, but not sure if she should wait. Background: She is being treated for high blood pressure, and has trouble walking due to osteoarthritis in her knees.
Avatar f tn It can be arthritis, fibromyalgia, or any other health condition. To get the right diagnosis, it is best to have yourself checked by the doctor. Self-medication without knowing what really ails you might lead to more health problems.
Avatar n tn I still wonder if I truly have gout. Could there be something else causing these symptoms? I quit drinking, cut bck on smoking and really do not eat much that is high in purines. The symptoms actually started several years ago after I pulled something in my foot. A few days later I woke with such severe pain up the instep in my foot that I could not walk. Took a long time for someone to say it was gout. They pulled fluid but couldn't see under the microscope.
Avatar f tn Is there associated inflammation? Fever? Most likely it can be due to osteoarthritis at the base of the big toe (also called hallux rigidus) which is extremely common. Alternately, it could be due to gout.
Avatar f tn Cough - this has been 'around' for nearly 2 years now!! Dry eyes - optician says blocked meibomian glands. Pain R foot (osteoarthritis / broken toe joint) Hot at night, unable to moderate temperature during day - sometimes too hot sometimes cold Tiredness, fatigue on exertion, poor sleep quality Intermittent stabbing pains in armpit. Cold, wet feeling on left shoulder at back. Hope someone can shed some light on this and tell me I'm not going totally barking mad!!
Avatar m tn Hi, For last two days, I am experiencing severe pain in toe and ankle (both legs). Every morning I wake up with this pain, which during the day advance to wrist and arm. I can feel that the pain is neither muscular or or skin but is related to bone. Further, as this is happening for only two days, I thought it might be exhaustion or something I did wrong during my regular morning jog. I haven't seen any doc till date, will go to general physicist today.
Avatar n tn 6 months later i still had the same symptoms as well as strong bladder pain,or pelvic pain; which would stretch out into my articulations, especially, hips, knees, and ankles. I went to another doctor and got checked for clamydia , it was positive, after ten days of antibiotics, I still have discharge, pelvic pain, joint pain, and painful intercourse. Please let me know if you have an idea of anything that could be causing these problems, thankyou very much.
Avatar f tn 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. Primary osteoarthritis is recognized as the most common form of osteoarthritis. Secondary osteoarthritis has an underlying or predisposing cause.
Avatar n tn So, I believe once I said, "I hope it's just a bunch of different things wrong with me that are conincidentally causing symptoms of MS, and not really MS." My primary said, "Well, it is not very often one has these all at the same time. It would be quite a coincidence.
1467506 tn?1286416617 I had surgery on my foot 2 months ago to remove a bone spur on the top of my foot. I also had a toe (second toe, next to great toe) that was affected by separate pain and had completely turned crooked. The top of my foot - where the spur was removed is still very sore and painful if I wear shoes that tie or walk for any distance. The entire foot feels cramped as well. The toe issue is unchanged - still the same pain as before bone spur surgery.
Avatar m tn My mother has recently experience these symptoms: shoulder, wrist, hip, knee pain. Plus, in the mornings sometimes she can't make a fist, and experiences "buzzing" in her joints throughout the day. Especially her hands. She also experiences a great deal of back pain and she bruises easily. She has been tested for parvo, limes disease, arthritis and lupis. no luck yet. she also can be quite thirsty throughout the day.... any idea?! she has been given naproxen as a pain killer.
Avatar f tn I have the same thing for ten years- pain and foot stiffnes in the morning for ten years- better after walking for ten minutes till 2 weeks ago- all of a sudden the pain was severe and constant with a throbbing- no over the counter meds worked so I made an appointment for a podiatrist- he gave me a prescription for naproxen (whitch didn't work and made my stomache on fire for hours) he diagnosed me with mortons toe- if your big toe is shorter than your second toe you have mortons toe- it can cau
578309 tn?1223305927 Hi all. I am 37 and my first odd symptom was a toe on my left foot went completely numb over a month ago. I thought nothing of it but a week later my right hand and right side of my face suddenly went completely numb and I started slurring words (this lasted only 5 or so min) The ER doc diagnosed me with "complex migraine" and sent me home. Three days later that same foot with the previous numb toe completely went numb for hours.
Avatar m tn I went to see a chiropractor and had modest relief but eventually consulted an orthopedist who ordered x-rays, which were negative. Physical exam showed that I cannot flex my right big toe upward against pressure. No numbness or loss of bladder/bowel control but bowel movements can cause excruciating pain in both legs. Prescribed a one week course of prednisone which helped tremendously. Anti-inflammatories help as well - taking 2 Aleve a day.
500238 tn?1255134814 I can personally attest to symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency. I was recently tested after 6 months of pain and doctors looking at me like, "we don't know," until I found a qualified doctor who performed the proper tests. My levels are 11.8 ng/ml. I have seen sites that call this moderate and others that call it severe. The current recommendations refer to this as severe deficiency.
625530 tn?1221870270 I have had positive ANA tests for about three years, but no autoimmune disorder diagnosis (lots of autoimmune problems in my family, though). I don't think I've had any other symptoms associated with Lyme or lupus, though I've had occasional mild joint pain in the fingers (diagnosed as early osteoarthritis). No diabetes as far as I know -- blood sugar levels have been fine. I have an upcoming neurology appointment, but I'm having to wait quite awhile for it.
Avatar f tn The MRI does not sound like MS. The symptoms do and don't. I have most of your symptoms as well and all my tests are normal too. I'm being treated for lyme disease.
Avatar n tn Also took an x-ray at the doctor's office and there appeared to be a small mass and they thought it might be a kidney stone but it's unlikely. That wouldn't explain all the symptoms. So the orthopedist referred him to a pain management doctor. That doctor thought he may have osteoarthritis and prescribed Meloxicam. He has taken two month's worth and feels a little better, says at least he doesn't feel like he's dying when he tries to get out of bed in the morning. But still has back pain.
Avatar f tn I have two compressed disks in my neck, two more compressed disks in my upper back, osteoarthritis all along my spine in the facet joints, and stenosis of some of the foramen that's compressing the nerve roots as they branch out from the spine. The stenosis may be causing radiculopathy which can cause pain to radiate down arms or legs, numbness and tingling. So, its possible that you may have this going on, as well as your other medical problems.
206807 tn?1331939784 Verdict is, I have mild arthritis in my lower back, but moderate to severe osteoarthritis in my hips(don't know the real details yet)..To quote the nurse (haven't talk to my hep doc yet-he had the xrays ordered) "if your feeling pain in your hips, it's not in your head" (vbg). I still also have pain in my knees and leg muscle, thinking it is probably all related...
901368 tn?1242062859 I woke up last night to go to the bathroom to urinate which i have had to do quite frequently for about 6 months now and I had the worse case of spasticity that I have ever had. My whole body was shaking from head to toe. I finally settled dowm but had a lot of problems just walking to the bathroom and back. I take a lot of medications when I go to bed at night that might be the cause but I am not sure. I have been taking them for quite a while.
Avatar m tn In fact, a recent study found glucosamine is more effective than acetaminophen (a.k.a. Tylenol) at relieving symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, often caused in younger men by joint injury. Dose: 1,500 mg glucosamine/day Vitamin C Problem: Injury Sixty percent of adult men don't get enough vitamin C in their diets, according to an American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study. Vitamin C helps protect your cells from the tissue-damaging free radicals produced by exercise.
Avatar f tn When I'm having an attack, I grab my foot and gently press the toes upward, especially the big toe. If I do it slowly and carefully, I feel the big toe come up, release in some way and then the nerve storm recedes. The storms last from a few seconds to a few minutes. The latter is particularly scary. I increased my neurontin to 2400 mg, bought orthopedic shoes and wrap my feet at night when they feel uncomfortable and I think I may have an attack.
