Ankle Developed Arthritis Cracking Joint
I have painful joints. Especially my left hip, lower back and right ankle. My left hip is really painful all the time. What can be wrong with me?
I am a 21 years old female. I saw a new doctor for painful joints in wrists/ankles. The doctor did a complete workup and it reported WBC 11.3, ANC 8916, TIBC 484, ESR 28 and Uric Acid 12.9. I had a previous bladder infection. The doctor suggested to repea
Persistent stiffness in ankle and is mostly relieved by popping/cracking it (1-2x daily). History of oa in other joints. Possible oa here too?
Yes: Painless cracking or popping of a joint by itself is very common and not a problem by itself. But, if it is a associated with pain or locking/unlocking it may represent arthritis or a loose piece of bone or cartolage floating around in the joint. See a doctor and get at least an x-ray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Benign: The exact reason for joint cracking is not known, but is thought to be possibly due to nitrogen bubbles releasing from the joint, or tendons/ligaments moving around the joint.

I have really painful joints, especially my left hip is really painful. Lower back and right ankle. I had an xray on my hip which showed no arthritis.?
In my experience...: Most hip pain does not eminate from the hip. Hip pain is felt in the groin and down the anterolateral aspect of the thigh to just above the knee. Standing will increase sx. Most people i see with "hip" pain, really have it in their buttock and/or side of the leg. Sacroiliac issues(pyrifromis included) and trochanteric bursitis require an exam. Neither are seen on a hip film. Arthritis is likely! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
