Complications Of Degenerative Disease Of The Knee Joints

Arthritis pain: Degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a descriptive phrase for arthritis. DJD involves wear and tear to the articular cartilage of the knee. This process can cause pain and inflammation, which can range from mild to severe, depending on the severity of the arthritis. For help with treatment of your djd, consult an orthopaedic surgeon.

Do I need surgery for advanced tricompartmental degernative joint disease in left knee with small joint effusion and several large ossified loose bodi?
Likely you will.: That sounds like a severely degenerated knee, especially for someone of your young age. That youth will likely relegate you to surgical correction - knee replacement - at some point, usually when the knee starts to feel unstable of if the pain becomes so severe that you simply can no longer use the knee effectively. But why is the knee so bad?
No: Degenerative joint disease per se cannot cause chf. But using antiinflammatories for a long time may cause chf.
Painful swelling of mrs. Rajashree mohanty’s legs from knee joints to feet (both legs) the disease started first with cellulitis of left leg about 6to 7?
Mrs. Mohanty: Needs to see a doctor. There are many reasons why legs can swell. The concern is the fact she has pain. Many people with swollen legs do not complain of pain rather tired legs, a heaviness etc. Due to t he fact there is pain this should be checked out. As you stated the swelling itself appears to have been there a while.See 2 more doctor answers

Can joint issues occur in Crohn's disease without a known Crohn's (intestinal) flare? I have Crohn's disease and what led the physicians to that diagnosis was my chronic knee effusions. I was offically diagnosed with Crohn's properly and was aggressibley
Often: Often times, the joint disease can serve as a "barometer" for underlying GI inflammation in patients with crohn's disease. There can be low-grade GI inflammation even without overt symptomatology. One cannot say with certainty, but I would be suspicious that you may, in fact, have some mild intestinal inflammation and you might want to check back in with your gastroenterologist for additional input on the subject.See 1 more doctor answer

blood vessel diseas: Raynaud's disease is due to spasm of the muscular lining of the blood vessels due to temperature extremes. It does not affect joints or muscles. I'm sorry, but the most obvious answer would be arthritis. I would investigate your knee joints, cartilage, and tendons.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm a 29 year old woman with Graves Disease, lately I have been experiencing stiffness and joint pain, moreso in my knees, ankles, and hands. Idea?
Graves disease: I presume you are taking medicine to control your thyroid or you have had the thyroid treated with radioactive iodine. I do not relate the symptoms you are expressing to Grave's disease. You must quickly arrange to see your doctor ASAP. If things are really that bad I would go the nearest Emergency room today and find out what is wrong. Hope all goes well.

I have tmj, runner knees, and tennis elbow. Is there any joint problem or disorder cause all this?
Possibly: Knee and elbow symptoms are typically overuse and/or damage/injury related. Are you a tennis player and runner historically? TMD is most often muscle, ligament, clenching, grinding related, but there can be a bone component as well as a bite issue. All three could be affected by a degenerative joint disease, but I would not be quick to lump them together. Seek Tx separately. Good luck.See 5 more doctor answers
Mri of my knee was done last week, they found anterior horn lateral meniscus has degenerative changes with apparent tear within the medial portion of the anterior horn. Small joint effusion present.?
What?: I am not sure what you are asking of us. Your results are common, standard and represent a need to see the orthopedic surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
Small intrasubstance signal seen in posterior horn of medial meniscus could be degenerative / grade 1 tear. It is my knee joint MRI report.?
Probably nothing: To call a tear, you must see signal going to the edge of the meniscus. Intrasubstance signal not extending to the surface would not satisfy criteria for a tear on mri. As a side note, the quality of the scanner and the scan parameters they chose will have great impact on the ability to see subtle findings such as this.See 1 more doctor answer
