Question What Type of arthritis causes Spurs?

Just wondering what forms of arthritis cause bone spurs? The reason I ask is I am 26 years old and have spurs in my feet. I have an appointment with a podiatrist in a few and I am kinda worried about what is wrong. Thanks.

Bone spurs can be caused by osteoarthritis but they can be caused by other means besides. I've known many people who had bone spurs on their feet but no problems with arthritis.

RIGHT. Osteophytes is the term used for bone spurs on the spine caused by Osteoarthritis. I have these. They are actual tiny outgrowths of new bone which are visiable on X-rays, MRI's and on bone density scans.

However my neighbor had "Spurs" on her heels and her Dr. called them spurs but said they were not bone and he gave her a steroid shot and the pain from them went away. She does not have arthritis of any kind.

Re: What Type of arthritis causes Spurs?

Hi....I'm new here and I'm kootie...lots of info here....wow !! Anyhow.....does anyone have bone spurs in there back that make clunk noises really bad ? You can hear mine it's so bad....some clunk some 'ping'.......the ones that ping seem to hurt ! I've developed a large lump on my disc on my lower spine and feels like raw nerves to even touch it. Got it in my neck too and had a terrible problem with migraines from it last summer and seem'd to be stirred up when we were out and posture ect must play a role. I'd start with a stiff neck then the spams's which I have alot thoughout my back but seem'd after all that would start in my neck a migraine was soon to hit. Am hopein that faze will let up this year....they ruin'd alot of fun times out last year. Thanks for listening.......

PS: By the way.....I have severe deg. dic in my lower spine and have it in my neck also.....have had the exrays and most of it is from when I raced horses and had some spectacular wrecks......didn't take it serious back then but I am paying now !
