748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn I would not recommend surgery while undergoing treatment for Hep C. Treatment drugs will lower his white count and likely cause some anemia, both of which could make surgery more risky. Also, depending upon the exact stage of his liver damage, a surgeon may or may not be willing to do the surgery. Surgery can cause the liver to decompensate (stop working properly), so usually a surgeon will need a hepatologist to approve the patient for surgery before agreeing to do it.
1310633 tn?1430227691 Does anyone have any experience with, or heard of, Adequan, Cartrophen or Cortisone shots for the treatment of pain associated with hip dysplasia, osteoarthritis, etc, in dogs? My English Mastiff has developed osteoarthritis in her right hind leg, and surgery isn't recommended this late in life, and an alternative to oral treatment (and far more effective from what the vet has told us, although MUCH more expensive), is shot treatment.

Avatar n tn I didn't get biopsy because I thought it wouldn't change my treatment. In my early 30s I began to have joint pain and diagnosed with osteoarthritis. My mother and her mother had osteoarthritis in early 30s as well. 7 years ago I developed a permanent blind spot (scotoma) in my left eye after an ocular migraine and around the same time persistent muscle twitching which doesn't interfere with my life and is mostly upon awakening in the morning and when I'm very relaxed.
6708370 tn?1471493810 Australian researchers reviewed three randomized trials that compared acetaminophen with a placebo for the relief of spinal pain, and 10 trials that compared their use for easing the pain of osteoarthritis.

Avatar f tn Have seen a rheumatologist who said that she thought that I probably had hepatitis that gave me osteoarthritis...Hep. A, B, and C were neg. as were liver enzymes. hip joints show no arthritis. She won't do a lymes test because my esr and cbc were normal. She told me to take motrin...my thumb joints are so contracted that I am losing function. I went to see a new pcp since mine quit to teach before I finally went to see her and I was left with a brand new nurse practitioner.

335728 tn?1331418012 Well I am back from the appt. with my Rheumy and it looks like, according to her, that I have Osteoarthritis in my hands but the rest of the "aching" pain that I have been suffering from is caused by a deficiency of Vitamin D. I have been advised that I should take 800IU of vitamin D for the rest of this year and next year lower it to 400IU and I should be fine.

Avatar m tn So I have fibro problems secondary to Lyme and requiring treatment separate from my long-term antibiotic treatment for Lyme. Again, the "take home" message here is that if you do have late-stage Lyme disease, you will not get a diagnosis for it, nor will you get adequate treatment, unless you actively seek an ILADS MD.
Avatar f tn Thanks again for the link. For my state, there was only one listing and it's for a town I've not heard of. Anyone know of a good doctor in Indiana? Any other information or links would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn This happened with every brand of thyroid treatment she tried. Her TSH level fluctuated between 15 and 50 and she felt lousy the whole time on medication. The doctor could not give us a good reason to continue treatment that made her sicker than she had ever been, so she chose to discontinue. The results were amazing. She went back to being her old self again. She feels good. When she went in for a medical checkup this month, her TSH is at 61. She doesn't want to try the medication again.
Avatar f tn Synvisc is not a drug to relieve pain, it will take time in acting as this is one of the hyaluronates used in viscosupplementation. Synvisc is a treatment for osteoarthritis which is injected directly into the knee joint. Take care!
