osteoarthritis

Avatar n tn Arthritis can occur due to many reasons like infection, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, psoriasis, trauma, osteoarthritis etc. More often X-ray images of the affected joint may reveal a narrowing space with in the joint, which indicates that the cartilage is breaking down. An X-ray may also show bone spurs around a joint. Depending upon the cause, there can be depositions, resorption of bone material etc. All the best.
1175033 tn?1492204828 I am 26 and have had joint degeneration in the facets of my cervical spine that has been visible on x-ray since I was 19. I just recently found out about this when I got another x-ray done, and the findings stated it was compared to an x-ray from 2002 which showed degeneration. Why didnt any one tell me? My doctors just said my x-rays were normal, but how can this be normal for someone that was 19 at the time?
Avatar n tn Hemorrhaging from esophageal, gastric, or ectopic varices or from portal hypertensive gastropathy, demonstrated by endoscopy, x-ray, or other appropriate medically acceptable imaging, resulting in hemodynamic instability as defined in 5.00D5, and requiring hospitalization for transfusion of at least 2 units of blood. Consider under disability for 1 year following the last documented transfusion; thereafter, evaluate the residual impairment(s). OR B.
Avatar f tn No methods of therapy or NSAIDS seems to help. No diagnosis. i just did this x ray. It looks like narrowing of the patellafemoral space. Is this correct? Thank you for any advice.
Avatar f tn My Oncologist ordered a chest X-ray and these were the results. The Aorta is Ectatic and Tortuous. There are numerous Platelike Densities throughout the Lungs. In the Lungs there are Atelectatic changes. There is some Haziness of the Left Hemidiaphragm. The Left Costophrenic Angle is somewhat Blunted. He tried to ordered a CT Scan but the Insurance Company would not let him do it ; I am guessing because he is not a Pulmonologist.
Avatar f tn - Mild spondylotic changes are seen in form of marginal osteophytes formation. - Mild subchondral sclerosis noted of end plate margin of L2 with minimal anterior wedging. Please Dr. explain these reports or results in simple layman's term. Thank you.

Avatar f tn But he recently had a second x ray and his right hip is badly damaged so he will possibly need a hip replacement in the near future (he had the first x ray 5 years ago). He basically has Osteoarthritis. But since last Wednesday he's been in alot of pain. But the problem is with his left hip rather than his right, he cannot understand it. He's been off work in agony, he's got pain in his left hip, buttocks, thighs, knee's and shins, basically what appears like Osteo in his left hip.
Avatar n tn Once my ring finger knuckle hurt for a year. The doc said the X-Ray showed no knuckle between the finger bones. Is this a case of disappearing joints? I've tried glucosamine chondroitin and shark cartilage but I can't see any noticeable improvements. Is there any way to resolve (aside from pain killers and drugs that have unknown or risky side affects)?

Avatar n tn Hi a year ago I visited my GP with left hip and upper thigh pain. He sent me for an X-Ray which showed early arthritis changes. He sent for a course of Physiotherapy which I attended for 6months. In the end I stopped going because after the initial mild improvement in pain there was no further improvement. I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily.
Avatar n tn I would like to reiterate that while I understand an MRI is a much more high quality image, no abnormalities were seen on any x-ray immediately subsequent trauma. Technique - Multiple pulse MRI sequences were performed in multiple planes through the cervical spine without administration of intravenous contrast. Findings - There is no evidence of acute fracture, subluxation, or dislocation. The vertebral body heights, intervertebral spaces and alignment of the spine are maintained.
203342 tn?1328740807 I was diagnosed with DDD 5 years ago and recently had another x-ray because of increasing pain in neck, shoulders, headaches, and more recently what they think is tendonitis in my rotery cuff in my right arm. I'm having limited motion in that arm and some in my neck now and pain. I just started PT a couple of weeks ago and wanted to bring a copy of my x-ray results. Could someone help me decipher them please? Recent spinal x-ray: Findings: The vertebral heights are maintained.
Avatar m tn This is following a motorcycle accident five years ago which resulted in a comminuted fracture of the tibia which was treated using an external fixator and internal screws. The x-ray shows the initial signs of joint space narrowing anteriorally medially. The range of motion in the joint is *almost* normal and there is no stiffness or problems in that regard, at the moment I simply experience mild pain/discomfort with activity.
Avatar n tn I have played many sports and had minor injuries. I will have to wait for the x-ray resullts because I am in a remote area and they read tests once evry 2 weeks or so. In the meantime I am wondering if these symptoms are indicative of this and what you would suggest I do to releive pain and if there is any over the counter medication that would help?
Avatar f tn My physio didn't say anything like that, i think i remember her saying i have some bone spurs there but not osteoarthritis, my gp's checked the x ray for another reason but they didn't say anything. My hip bone and socket is sort of narrow on one side of it. I'm freaking out about my future, there was pain before but not anymore, i'm not restricted at all other than the annoying hip clicking! I'm so scared. Now i'm having physio once a week.
Avatar m tn Then, my knees would just ache pretty much chronically. Finally, I visited an orthopedic surgeon as suggested by my wonderful PCP. We did an X-Ray, MRI, and blood work. X ray showed some damage but nothing significant. I have never had any trauma to my knees by the way. The MRI showed that I didn't have much cartilage in my right knee. Blood work came back negative for possible diagnoses like Rheumatoid Arthritis (RF level was normal).
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 n tn I believe to be aggravated due to a military injury. Last x-ray showed Schmorl’s nodes on the T11 and T10 with multiple vertebral endplate irregularities but minimal multilevel osteoarthritis changes. The pain I get in my back almost causes me to cry. What does all this “doctor talk” mean? Does not seem to be serious but the pain is unbearable at times.
3112530 tn?1434035633 Recently I have been diagnosed with hand nodules which are becoming more painful as I use that hand. I have to go for an x-ray but my doctor mentioned the possibility of Rheumatoid arthritis. Are they related? This diagnosis could be related to a number of things but rheumatoid arthritis is one of them. I have no other symptoms, a history of degenerative joint/disk disease with my spine but that is it for the most part.
Avatar n tn Hi, After experiencing acute jabs of pain in my right hip when I walked, my PCP referred me to a rheumatologist and I had an X-ray done. The diagnosis was "osteoarthritis of the right hip" with a calcium deposit on a tendon near my hip. That supposedly was why I was experiencing all the stabbing pain. I also have severe degeneration of the discs of my back. The acute pain has sort of disappeared and now it is a more subtle pain that is located more in the groin area of the hip.
1282316 tn?1279569282 If you have started having pain after an injury or fall then fracture should be suspected and you should go for X-ray scans. Osteoarthritis pain can be suspected with previous injuries to your leg or a chronic developing pain. This can be severe with movements and weight bearing. Start taking NSAIDs, ice the area and go for X-ray scans. Follow up with an orthopedician for correlating and diagnosing your condition. Take care!
Avatar f tn Unstable knee can give rise to cartilage loss and in long run you may suffer from osteoarthritis. Discuss with an orthopedician after examination and an X-ray to start with. Take care!
Avatar n tn Diagnosis is done by x-ray and MRI of the joints.Treatment includes rest,reduction of weight,non steroidal anti inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen, local injections of glucocorticoid or hyaluronan, and in severe cases, with joint replacement surgery. I feel that a rheumatologist’s consultation will be the best. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
587778 tn?1261400718 Hello! Osteoarthritis should be diagnosed properly by an X-ray. Get your X-ray commented by an expert radiologist as understanding the degree of damage to the cartilage is very important. If you have mild osteoarthritis then you have to limit further damage. You should have proper strong ligaments in your knee joint and I would suggest you to go for an MRI and confirm if the healing in your MCL was complete. Ligament damage can contribute to osteoarthritis further.
Avatar m tn He should go for testing his blood uric acid levels to rule out gout. He should go for X-ray scans and some other blood tests to rule out osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis or Rheumatic fever etc. Ask him to see a rheumatologist / orthopedician for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Take care!
Avatar f tn I had a severe impact injury and although no bone injury was sustained the x ray showed marginal oesteophytes from L3 to L5 what is this and can this be a result of the injury
Avatar f tn If you have chronic knee pain in both of your legs then rule out osteoarthritis or other joint problems like Rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic diseases. Go for an X-ray and follow up with an orthopedician for a proper diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar n tn It gets worse when climbing the stairs or a hill. The pain does not go down the leg. I had X-Ray of my hip and it showed mild to moderate osteoarthritis. I had physical therapy for 3 weeks and it did not help much. I get stiff when sitting for a long time but stretching helps. Should I have a steroid injection?
