What are some of the symptoms of arthritis in the hip?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Among the common signs of hip arthritis are:

  1. discomfort: Either continuous or sporadic hip joint discomfort, frequently experienced in the buttocks, groin, outer thigh, or perhaps even the knee. Activity may make the discomfort worse, and resting may make it better.
  2. Stiffness: Difficulty moving the hip joint, especially after sitting or sleeping for extended periods of time. Additionally, stiffness may be felt during extended standing or physical exertion.
  3. Reduced range of motion: Hip joint mobility can be severely restricted by arthritis, which results in a smaller range of motion. This can make bending over, squatting, and ascending stairs difficult.
  4. Swelling: Hip joint inflammation can result in swelling, soreness, and a warm, touchable area surrounding the hip.
  5. Grinding or popping sensations: When the hip joint's cartilage deteriorates, the bones may rub against one another, giving rise to a clicking, popping, or grinding sensation that may be felt when moving.
  6. Limping: Hip joint pain and stiffness can cause abnormalities in gait, such favoring one leg when walking over the other or limping.

Do you have arthritis?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Are your joints always hurting? Does your blood sugar glucose go down easier? Do your joints sometimes get inflammed and bruise without even hurting it? If these symptoms don't go away in about a month or two, you should get tested for arthritis. It will also depend on what type of arthritis you have. They will probably do a blood test and then an x ray of the joints that hurt.

The most common is idiopathic arthritis, which nobody is sure of why it happens or caused. The second most common is rhumetoid arthritis. This is found in children and young teens mostly(Juvenile Rhumetoid arthritis (JRA), but also adults. This is different because unlike idiopathic, rhumetoid arthritis is caused by the immune system fighting off tissue that make the joints swell and hurt ALOT!!!

How is ringbone like arthritis?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Ringbone is the term used for osteoarthritis in horses, It is alsoreferred to as bony arthritis, of the pastern and/or coffin joints ringbone in the pastern joint is called high ringbone, and in the coffin joint is is referred to as low ringbone. Arthritis is any condition that causes inflammation of the joint. Osteoarthritis forms when the inflammation within the joint creates enough damage that the body lays down bone in an effort to heal the damaged tissue. This bony development development occurs at the joint surface or the attachment sites of the joint capsule to the bone. Another term to describe this type of damage to a joint is degenerative joint disease (DJD). The same sort of thing happens in humans after rheumatic inflammation

'What does it mean when the MRI comes back with C5-C6 and C6-C7 disc osteophytic complex with some narrowing of the left lateral recesses at these two levels?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

From what I see in your question, you're talking about the bones in your neck called cervical bones. For the #'s you gave, it would mean there's narrowing or lack of a gap between cervical #5 thru cervical #7. (5-6-7) That's most of the way up from the base of the neck on the backside. Narrowing of spaces where there's usually gaps is caused by wear & tear and aging usually and when the cushions between the bones are shrinking from wearing down or the aging process the consequence is narrowing. In this case on the left sides of C5 thru C7.

Will massage help with osteoarthritis?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Osteoarthritis indicates damage to the cartilage in that knee. while message may feel good and give some relief it will not do anything to repair the cartilage that is at the root of the problem.

Answer 2: Unfortunately osteoarthritis has to do with the knee, bone and cartilage loss. Massage can only affect the muscles and surrounding tissue. It may help to massage this area if there is swelling and inflammation but that will not change the loss of cartilage in the knee. Severe osteoarthritis and loss of cartilage, bone on bone, is where doctors usually consider knee replacement surgery.

Cause of burning sensation in breast?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I've just been doing some research on this. The consensus is worst case scenario (but

very rare) would be inflammatory breast cancer, usually not caught by mammogram. More commonly, cancer does not cause pain or burning and this is probably a hormonal issue - if it's cyclical - then related to periods, if not cyclical, then probably related to

post-menopausal hormonal changes. One surgeon suggested taking evening primrose oil capsules three times a day (can find in any vitamin/health food store). So if you're really paranoid than suggest it the cancer scenario to your doctor, as it was stated that most doctors would miss that diagnosis, otherwise try the primrose oil and see if

you get any relief.

What is the most common form of arthritis?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Most forms of arthritis are found in the joints of the body and are characterized by pain and dysfunction The main forms are inflammatory and non inflammatory arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. RA can also cause inflammation of the tissue around the joints, and in other organs and tissue in the body. An autoimmune disease is a condition where body's tissues are mistakenly attacked by the body's own immune system. The immune is designed to "seek and destroy" invaders or foreign materials of the body, especially infections. Persons with autoimmune diseases have antibodies in their blood that attack their own body tissue, where they can be associated with inflammation. Because it can affect several organs of the body it is known as a systemic illness and is sometimes called rheumatoid disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic illness, meaning it can last for years, patients may experience long periods of time without symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive illness that has the potential to cause joint destruction and functional disability.

Osteoarthritis is another very common form of arthritis and this is more likely to come later in life as the result of wear and tear. and sometimes trauma causing joint damage and displacement.

Gouty arthritis is another form of arthritis that is the result of the formation of crystals being formed in joints and other parts of the body. this disease tent to be prevalent mainly in men
