Conditions with symptom: 'arthritis'
I found out that I had chlamydia 3 months after being diagnosed with reactive arthritis. I was told that chlamydia was the cause of of arthritis so was treated with antibiotics. I'm not sure how long I had the chlamydia for(it could have been years) since being treated I now have very irregular periods (2 a month) am I infertile?
i have had ulcers on both legs for 2 years now, factor v leiden, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and secondary hypoadrenalism. I have seen several consultants but nothing appears to have improved. I have an identical twin who also has arthritis, factor v leiden and leg ulcers for over 12 years. Most of the consultants say that things are complicated due to all the various illnesses and that there is nothing else they can tell us. Can you help? I forgot to mention that I also suffer from raynaulds syndrome.
I am 47 year old woman, in January I hurt my foot/ toe by kicking a heavy box. I went to A & E had n x ray and they told me I had fractured it and made an appointment for 3 days later to go to the fractures clinic. I had no swelling just very painful to touch on the foot and toe joint. Fracture clinic said I had arthritis in my toe and sent me away. Still now(April) my foot is still very painful and putting pressure on it is very painful at times. I have had no swelling at all. Should I go back to doctor for further conformation of arthritis.
Hi I'm 14 years old. I had fell on my knee 5 months ago. It was barely hurting exept for when I turned on it. And my knee would feel like as if it had to pop. A week later I went to the doctor. They told me to rest it for two weeks so I did. And my symptoms improved except for two things. I have this occasional popping sensation in my knee and recurrent swelling. My mom will not take me to the doctor for this. I even called the doctor twice. No matter what I say or do my mom will just never take this seriously. I had knee surgery a year ago for a tibia fracture and torn pateller so. I have a screw in my knee. My symptoms have never effected my ability to play sports. (I'm a skateboarder). And there is no pain. Just this weird sensation in my knee. Almost locking. Maybe a torn part of the meniscus is rubbing against my joints. Am I at risk for arthritis if I don't get this treated soon? I just cannot get my mom to take me to a doctor because I had sort of a cry wolf past. (I'm a hypochondriac). In fact NOBODY in my family will. I feel that if I don't fix this soon my life will be miserable. I don't want arthritis. i will not stop thinking about this until I get an answer. How can I get my mom to take me seriously? And what is the arthritis risk? Do I really need to see a doctor? Please help! :((
Hi i am 40 in two months and i am a bit concerned with my periods. Since having my daughter three years ago they have been quite heavy i am quite regular (between 26-28 or up to 31 days) my last cycle was only 17 days ago and i am bleeding again and it's quite heavy and bit painful. when i was 27 i was diagnosed with Endometriosis which i had an operation for and i was told i had a kink in my left fallopian tube and it would be hard for me to conceive as years went on. I got married in 2007 and we did the entire test then to find out if i would need IVF but after three months i fell pregnant but lost it in January 2008 (just over 12 weeks gone) by May 2008 i fell pregnant again and went full term. I had a copper coil fitted last may 2010. I do have a few health conditions 1 i suffer from osteoarthritis /secondary arthritis, Fibromyalgia,I.B.S and 3degree arthritis in the knees. i am also overweight.
hello, i am 15 and sometimes when i move my big toe's they click and they have been doing this now for around over a year, im worried i am going to get bad arthritis in both of my toe's. Thanks
clicking your fingers or toes DOES NOT cause arthritis it was proven by a doctor years ago he only clicked the fingers on his right hand and never on the left he reached the old age of 80 and never had any arthritis in any hands/fingers
i am 36 and have arthritis and lupus, does this mean that i would not be a suitable bone marrow donor?
I would think it would not be a good idea for you to give bone marrow for your own health. I have lupus and if you are on treatment for it you would be severely at risk of infection etc. I have no idea if it is even allowed! You would need to ask your own GP or the consultant involved.
hi wae dig just ther at chirstmas with lupus still cant come to terms with it i have sjoures and renulids was on methotrexate injecton but my body will not take it and i have had differnt tablets and that happens to
Why does nobody ever mention 'reactive arthritis' and the lifetime of pain and disability that come with it when talking about Chlamydia?
Every now and then my fingers tend to lock and become stiff it only lasts for a few seconds. It's very scary I am only 17 years old, but my mum says I may have Arthritis. Can this be true ?
I Have had JIA for past 16 years (from 13 years)and i suffer from the same thing, my little finger and index finger locks, if you can bend the tip its known as swan finger, i would get checked out at docs!
Possible trigger finger?
