Ankle Arthritis

I injured my ankle while in the Navy in 1982, the doctors didnít find anything wrong till 1985 at which time they performed surgery and removed a broken bone spur. The bone spur did a lot of damage during the 3 years it was in my ankle. I have received cortisone shots for the last 6 years and now need a sub talor fusion. My question is Iíve been constantly nausea for 4+ years now. The doctor prescribed Paxil 1/1/2 years ago, which helped and said itís probably anxiety. Now Iím starting to get migraine headaches.
He thinks the nausea is do to the pain (8-10 constant) Iím in. Can ankle arthritis cause nausea and migraines?.

Re: Ankle Arthritis

I have had the same question for years, and I'm convinced that it does. I was diagnosed when I was in my late 20's with osteoarthritis in my right ankle and in my neck. On days when the ankle pain is severe, I get terrible headaches to the point of feeling nauseous. This is true even when it doesn't feel as if I'm having pain in my neck. I've mentioned this to my doctor, but she has just shrugged it off. I can sympathize with you. I'm going for an MRI on my neck tomorrow (my last x-rays were nine years ago) to see how far things have progressed. I may ask the question again at that time because I'll be seeing a whole different team of professionals. If I find out anything, I'll let you know.
