I am on Methotrexate for Psoriasis.For the last 3 months I have stiffness in my joints on hands and knees.Could this be psoriatic Psoriasis.Thanks?

Maybe: Approximately 20% of psoriasis patients get psoriatic arthritis (PSA). It depends on which joints are hurting and whether they are actually inflamed. There are other causes of joint pain unrelated to your psoriasis that need to be ruled out. A Rheumatologist can help you sort this out. ...Read more

I have been feeling itchy on my hands and legs the last few days, this only happens in the evening times. Today I checked my knee. A part of it was al?

I suspect that: maybe a key part of your question was cut off..your observation about something on your knee. The most usual cause of itchy hands is eczema or an irritant causing dermatitis/skin inflammation. Simple dry skin is the usual cause of leg itching. Is there a rash? redness? I would try simply moisturizing lotion to your legs, and perhaps a 1% hydrocortisone cream for your hands. If not better, to Derm ...Read more

Multiple Joints: Typically with multiple joint involvement we have our patients start with a rheumatologist to check if there is systemic arthritic involvement. Your primary care doc could start the evaluation with 10 days on 4 days off various anti-inflammatory medications to see if they can find one of the 9 categories to work well at controlling your symptoms.

Pain & swalling in right  ancle , knee  right hands little finger joint since last one year. Uric acid 5.5, ESR 46, CRP +ve.Plz help.

See a rheumatologist: Uric acid levels may be totally normal in patients with gout. The inflammation occurs within the joint space with maldistribution of the gouty particles.

I'm a 35 year old adult within 3 weeks I have got strep throat and this last time severe joint pain hands, knees and back.. I don't feel any better?

Post Strep: There are poststreptococcal arthritis syndromes. The best known is acute rheumatic fever. More often in adults we see post streptococcal arthritis. I cannot say for sure you have that picture need an evaluation. Often if your strep throat is treated soon enough such occurrences can be prevented.

My left hand keeps falling asleep. I have syringomyelia diagnosed age 4 (13 now) I tweaked my back while in the pool last week both knees became stiff the full length of both my legs were tingly/tender and my left foot was asleep. my neurosurgeon released

My left hand keeps falling asleep. I have syringomyelia diagnosed age 4 (13 now) I tweaked my back while in the pool last week both knees became stiff the full length of both my legs were tingly/tender and my left foot was asleep. my neurosurgeon released

Nerve compression: Your symptoms sound like more than muscle strain and are consistent with compression or injury to the spinal cord or major spinal nerves possibly from a herniated disc in the lumbar area. Without more information regarding location of your syringomyelia, it is hard to say if that is related. You need to be seen on an urgent basis and may need MRI. Your neurosurgeon knows you best. ...Read more

I often injure my joints.In 08 I sprained my wrist and it lasted 2-3 years,in 2010 my knee for 3 yrs.Now other my wrist.How do I strengthen my joints?

You can't . you can-: -only increase their stability by muscle strengthening. joints themselves only have motion, controlled by ligaments and muscle. ligaments do become stronger or more specifically able to withstand stress by constant use such as running, cutting, jumping. but the only guide the movement, and can't be stretched or made longer as they are inelastic. ...Read more

I punched a friends knee over a month ago and my arm still has three lumps plus my thumb is longer and under that it looks like my wrist is caved in?

Get help!: If it's that old of an injury, and still bothering you with deformities you've listed, it would be a good idea to have an urgent care or sports med doc check it out. You could have fractures or hematomas. Regular soft tissue injury shouldn't last this long. Good luck! ...Read more

How long is the recovery from a total knee? Is it a painful recovery ? I am very worried  because i  had  a joint replacement in my thumb and i  rsd

3-6 months: The recovery continues for 6 months or more. The most rapid phase is in the first 6 weels. At that time most patients will still have start up stiffness, mild swelling, difficulty sleeping through the night, and may still be taking pain medication. Those symptoms will gradually resolve by 3 months after surgery and patients will have returned to most all of their preoperative activities. ...Read more
