Symptoms of Hip Calcification

symptoms of hip arthritis

Hip calcification does not cause any symptoms that the patient can notice in its initial stage. However, as the extent of calcification increases, the patient's complaints begin to become evident. Symptoms of hip calcification are as follows:

  • Pain in the joint during and after movement,
  • Disease in the joint before or during the weather change,
  • Swelling and loss of flexibility in the joint,
  • Bone swellings may occur on the fingertip. Similar swellings may also occur in the middle joint of the finger.

Hip Calcification The most important complaint is pain. The pain is aching and felt in the affected joint. In the early stages of the disease, pain increases with movement and decreases with rest. As the disease progresses, pain may become a problem even during simple activities. In later stages, constant pain may occur that disrupts night sleep patterns. The mobility of the joint may be restricted. The intensity of pain is not always static. There may be good and bad days or even months, regardless of any reason. Some patients attribute this to the weather or think it is more related to physiological activity.

Apart from pain, joint swelling, stiffness, stiffness, crepitation (crunching sound coming from the joint with movement), restriction of joint movements, deformity may occur and eventually disability may develop. It may occur in the morning or after rest. Morning stiffness is short-lived; It does not exceed 15-20 minutes.

The most commonly affected joints in osteoarthritis are the knees. Patients have difficulty kneeling, going up and down stairs, sitting on a chair and getting up. Swelling, fluid accumulation and deformity occur in the knee.
