Arthritis Leads To Calcification?
, I have often fallen because of dizziness / wheezing, both when driving, walking, standing after sitting or lying down. Every time you fall there are bruises between your legs or arms and it takes weeks to disappear; most often on both knees. Until finally began to get sick after years and finally I saw a doctor a few months ago. The result is knee arthritis plus calcification. I am still 22 and thought it was impossible to calcify before the age of 50 and above. I wonder why this can be, huh?
Thank you for the question.
Arthritis accompanied by calcification or osteoarthritis is indeed often found in old age and very rarely at a young age, but this can occur in young people who tend to be active as in athletes or the military and also people with obesity, and at your case, a history of recurrent trauma to the knee can also cause inflammation and calcification of the knee. In addition, the following are other possibilities caused by the duration of the healing on the bruise:
Medical history such as blood-thinning drugs, antidepressants, corticosteroids. Bleeding disorders. Vitamin Deficiency. Inflammation of blood vessels or vasculitis. The existence of diseases such as diabetes. Therefore you should also consult a doctor about your frequent bruising conditions like this. For the future, maintain a healthy lifestyle, meet the needs of healthy and nutritious nutrition and drink at least 2-3 liters of water a day, reduce excess activity.
Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
