10 Possible Causes for Costochondritis, Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Pelvic Girdle Pain

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Symptoms develop over a matter of weeks; typically bilateral shoulder or pelvic girdle pain and stiffness, that is worse in the mornings.[] Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate accompanies the symptoms. See also erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[] Of five patients with costochondritis, four remained asymptomatic.[]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    They have current or previous buttock pain (felt on alternating sides), arthritis, enthesitis, costochondritis, epicondylitis, anterior uveitis, psoriasis or inflammatory[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and alkaline and creatinine phosphatase were elevated. There was no rheumatoid factor present.[] (D) Probability plots of difference in radiological progression among (I) participants with normal ( 12 mm/h) and elevated ( 12 mm/h) erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)[]

  • Reiter's Syndrome

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C reactive protein also elevated 81% HLA-B27, less common in African Americans (30-50%); more likely in patients with chronic or relapsing[] Cartilage can also become inflamed, especially around the breastbone where the ribs meet in the front of the chest, this condition is called costochondritis.[] Cartilage can become inflamed, especially around the breastbone where the ribs meet in the front of the chest, this condition is called costochondritis.[]

  • Juvenile Ankylosing Spondylitis

    C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR or sed rate). These tests are done to determine if there is inflammation in the body.[] Inflammation can occur in the cartilage around the breastbone ( costochondritis ) as well as in the tendons where the muscles attach to the bone (tendinitis) and in ligament[] Costochondritis, with chest pain is common. Over time, the patient may become more stooped and bent.[]

  • Relapsing Polychondritis

    Arthritis may be oligoarticular or polyarticular, most often involving the costochondral junctions.[] Although chondritis, perichondritis, and iritis have been reported as frequent components of this syndrome, fever, malaise, and an elevated sedimentation rate[] Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is an autoimmune musculoskeletal disease of unknown etiology characterized by pain and stiffness in the shoulder, neck, and pelvic girdle, but[]

  • Spondylitis

    For some people, the AS diagnosis is pretty clear: “They have inflammation of the sacroiliac joints, an elevated sedimentation rate, a positive HLA-B27 blood test, and uveitis[] Morning low back pain and stiffness Improves on exercise May radiate into both buttocks Extra-spinal features Other joint pain Hips (in about 1/3 of patients) Shoulder girdle, costochondral[] An elevated sedimentation rate is seen in less than 70% of people with AS.[]

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    Involvement of bone and cartilages: This includes costochondritis and osteitis. Respiratory difficulties are also seen when ribs and sternum get involved.[] sedimentation rate (indicates the presence of inflammation) Positive testing for elevated C reactive protein (indicates the presence of acute inflammation) A negative test[] […] stiffness that is worse in the mornings Pitted nails, or nails separating from the nail bed Lower back pain People may also develop tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons), or costochondritis[]

  • Seronegative Arthritis

    […] most often around pelvic and pectoral girdles Tenderness in muscles rather than joints ESR almost always increased Pathology Form of giant cell arteritis and associated with[] ESR, or erythrocyte sedimentation rate, or just ‘sed rate’. The test is non-specific, when elevated it shows that there is inflammation in the body.[] […] clinical parameters and slows joint damage Extra-articular features of sponyloarthropathies (AS) (5,3,3) Asymmetric peripheral arthritis Sausage digits Achilles tenosynovitis Costochondritis[]

  • Osteitis

    Osteitis pubis can also be associated with pelvic girdle pain. References [ edit ] Fricker, Peter (October 1991). "Osteitis Pubis in Athletes".[] Blood analyses showed an elevated white blood cell count, C-reactive protein level, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[] Partial ossification of the first right costochondral junction was present ( Figure 1C ).[]

  • Kocher-Debre-Semelaigne Syndrome

    In Hoffman's syndrome, the patients typically complain of cramps, ache and pain in muscles of the shoulder and pelvic girdles.[] Chapters: Fraser syndrome, Enterococcus faecalis, Costochondritis, Volvulus, Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, Central cord syndrome, Progressive bulbar palsy, Eosinophilic[] Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is useful when an overlap syndrome is suspected, or in the diagnosis of polymyalgia rheumatica.[]
