My father is 83 and suffers from OA that is manifest in many joints but became severe in his knees 5-years ago. In the last year and a half severe pain occurs in his hips and an ankle. Recently he went through a surprising three week period where the severe pain in his hips and ankle was -uniquely in his experience- vastly reduced (while the severe knee pain remained unabaited) There was no change at all in medication, or change in nutritional habits, excercise or daily routine when the hip and ankle pain dimmished -or 3 weeks later returned to its’ previously high pain level. I haven’t read anything about remissions in OA, can that happen? if so are there classical triggers we should look for? (He has also been diagnosed as early stages of Parkinsons) Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Could you elaborate on how osteoarthritis can be a secondary condition to avascular necrosis? And how can avascular necrosis adversely affect a confirmed primary diagnosis of osteoarthriris?
Is there a scale (or a questionnaire) that measures risk for arthritis? We would like to include it in a research study with older registered nurses.
Is this also caused by Osteoarthritus or are you just born with it? What are the implications?
I’m a RA sufferer who has been taking Voltaren SL 100mg tabs for quite a while now. The only problem, is that they seeverely wear off by about dawn and the pain wakes me up and I can no longer get comfortable enough to get back to sleep. Can I take TWO of these, one in the am and one before bed even though they are time release without any side effects? I have been on Prednisone..could not tolerate that even at a low dosage. Helped the pain greatly, but made me VERY ILL! And Methotrexate is right out! Can you recommend anything. Typing this letter is extremely painful.
