I went to the local orthopedic health system and they took xrays and said it "looked like" arthritis in the hip joint. They set me up for a cortisone shot and physical therapy. They said I'd feel great when I left, then it might hurt the next day after the lidocaine wore off and then feel better in 3-5 days when the cortisone took....

    ankle joint inflammation..

    I wasn’t sure what category to ask this question under so I chose all I could for some answers. I’m 16 years old and I have seen three doctors about my left ankle (only one affected). It’s given me trouble for nearly a year now and the doctor diagnosed it as an inflamed ankle joint. The end of my foot swells along with my toes but my ankle itself does not.

Over the last 14 years or so, I've been able to largely function by doing lots of exercise, stretching, and could function at a high level in basketball. As I've gotten older and less active, I've noticed more knee clicking and irritation only when I play sports, or on intense hikes Last month I went for an MRI under surgeons....
