Avatar m tn I would say 3-7 would be moderate on a scale of 1-10, but I don't think that is what you are looking for. What symptoms are you experiencing now? What treatment has the doctor prescribed? What area of your body is effected?

1378884 tn?1315509445 I have broken both knee caps in the past, (car accident and Karate Class) had a meniscus tear repaired, which made left knee much worse. Hands and feet are fine. Usually wake up fine ( as fine as a 55 year old can be) and by the end of day or frequent use (walking/weight lifting) I am in extreme pain and no flexibility. My Doc had me try some Celebrex which took the edge off the pain and allowed me to be more active but I was far from pain free. Going in for an MRI.
1459410 tn?1285698605 Im in PT to help as well but if anyone would like to share a short summary of their story from pre-diag symptoms through successful treatment, I would really like to see how the different docs have handled your speciific case. The most effective thing Ive done on my own was recently bought an herbal cream that has capsicum in it whihc has done more than any of the other pharma routes. Its still kinda unbearable but Ive at least noticed it being somewhat alleviated.
Avatar m tn I have not had any other serious medical problems. Over the last couple months I've developed pain in my feet and hands. It started in my feet with the balls of my feet aching and feeling "weak". Not sure if weak is the right term, but they just didn't feel normal. Pain is not severe, but has not gone away. Lately there has been some pain in toes and occasionally down the sole of my foot. I have also begun having pain in my hands.
Avatar n tn I am female, 47 and for 10 years I have had a constant burning sensation in both feet. Also, my feet always seem dry to the touch, as if they don't have sweat glands. I keep lotion and socks on at all times just to help me bear the pain. It is also unbearable to allow anyone else to touch my feet. It is almost a hypersensitive shock type of feeling. If I step on something....even the smallest item such as a paperclip, it feels like the pain is ampliphied.
Avatar f tn Every doctor I talked to since I first learned I had hep c, told me to wait to be treated because I am bipolar, with major depression. I know I wouldn't survive the old treatment because I get so depressed, I sometimes want to kill myself. I also have osteoarthritis in my lumbar and sciatica. In addition, I was shot in my right arm many years ago. I haven't had ,much trouble with it until now. I have lots of bone and bullet fragments in my shoulder and neck where the bullet used to be.

Avatar n tn I am a 46 years old male, quite fit. I have had some back and feet pain in the past, I have mild scoliosis since a child, nothing severe, so I began to go to a chiropractic once in a while for the last 3 years and began also to wear custom made orthotics and very confortable shoes. I exercise sort of quite regularly, I am not a gym freak but I bike, swim, walk and lift light weights.
Avatar f tn During treatment, my legs would ache. I thought it was the medicine but they continue to hurt 8 months post treatment. It rained today and now they are acting up again. I think the medicine brought out some arthitis. Has this happened to anybody else?
3202871 tn?1352133377 ------------------------------------- Did you have another viral load drawn at 24 weeks after end of treatment, in late May or early June? And did that 24 weeks post end of treatment VL come back UND? I ask because I am basing my response on you attaining SVR. "How long will it take me to feel normal again??" --------------------------------- The time it takes to feel "normal" again varies from person to person.
Avatar n tn how can i stop the pain in the soles of my feet when i stand after lying or sitting down.the pain stays on for about 5 minutes after i stand and start to move about.
587787 tn?1218808059 The MRI showed DJD in the C-Spine and osteoarthritis with buldging disc and narrowing of the disc space but no compression of the nerves. Keep in mind the MRI was early in the morning, laying flat on a table with a towel roll under my neck, and a head stabilizer strapped to the back board. So I still wonder that if the headaches are worse as the day progresses, the weakness is worse, the numbness of my face, tingling of my fingers and feet.
Avatar n tn weather changes or i get sick.. my legs and joints ache. this never happened before treatment. While on treatment.. i thgouht my legs were going to fall off and my back would break I ached sooo bad. I thought i would be free of this since i sucessfully completed treatement and was undetectable after 1 year post treatment. But i still suffer with the ache joints. Any thoughts on this would be great PS: I completed treatment in may of 04.
Avatar f tn Iam a 29 old female n for the past 2mth,I've been waking up wit very sore feet (soles) it feels like they are burning,I don't wear high heels or any heel!,the pain doesn't go for about an hour an a half!
159785 tn?1276229625 And, my hands and feet used to get kind of bloodless (really, really white). Antibodies do not cause hypo symptoms, pure and simple. They only indirectly cause symptoms as they destroy your thyroid gland and you lose the ability to produce T3 and T4. It's levels of T3 and T4 that are too low that cause your symptoms. I wouldn't bother going back to the doctor who told you that!
Avatar m tn I deal with that burning pain on the soles of my feet a lot. It feels like someone is holding a lighter to the bottoms of my feet. It is definitely a common MS symptom. My hands hurt too, but in a different way. Can you call back, or ask for an email address, so your doctor can get your message- from you. I find that having people in the middle often results in the doctor getting a somewhat different message than you originally gave his support staff.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr. My age is 69 years, physically i m keeping very good health, problem wise my all the ailments are not ordinary one. 1.

Avatar n tn Hi it is my first time ever posting on a forum, i need help and advise as to the best way to get help and treatment for pain that im in.
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 HI, I have sore feet in the morning and throughout the day after sitting for a half hour or so. I have read other Q&A's and the anwsers don't fit. I'm hoping to get some direction for what to ask my doctor to look for.
Avatar m tn It does not burn at night (some due to the huge hydrocodone in system I guess) but when I wake up in the mornings there is still no feet problem. But as soon as my feet hit the carpet or floor this sensitive feet syndrome begins to build and eventually builds in to a bruning pain. My MD has given me two blood panels, including checking for B-12, magnisium, and of course the panel reports no diabetes, liver, kidney, etc. problems.
1183618 tn?1277368706 Pray, research, and demand thorough treatment. The only reason I discovered these problems was because I decided they would not find out what my illness was on autopsy. The doctors, unfortunately, is not ALWAYS looking at you as an individual, but as a textbook case. My endocrinologist (2nd in 4 months) prescribed 50,000 I.U. 2 times a week for 4 weeks and then it decreases to times a week for 4 weeks.
475586 tn?1225027354 My knees do have osteoarthritis in them--I had an MRI. I also have 2 herniated discs in my neck and kyphosis. My sister has RA, so I thought I had it also, but the doctors say no. I have a rheumatologist who is very nice, although most of the treatments I've been getting for fibro are not doing much. He seems sure that other than my knees and my neck, what I have is fibromyalgia. I have pain all the time, aching and soreness and also the sharp, stabbing pains.
Avatar f tn Alternative medicine can be very effective for the treatment of osteoarthritis.
657653 tn?1224684306 Aside from weight reduction and avoiding activities that exert excessive stress on the joint cartilage, there is no specific treatment to halt cartilage degeneration or to repair damaged cartilage in osteoarthritis. Apart from regular NSAID's, treatment options can include arthrocentesis and arthroscopy, arthroplasty, osteotomy and arthrodesis. Depending on the extent of damage to the bone and disc treatment options might vary. Check this link for further information. http://www.
