Osteoarthritis / Osteoarthrosis / Degenerative Disease

Osteoarthritis is a disease that leads to the degeneration of the cartilage that cushions bones in joints. As the cartilage degenerates, the bone becomes inflamed and painful and the joints become stiff and tender. Most often, osteoarthritis affects the hands, feet, knees and spine.

Degeneration / Breaking of Muscles in Hand

Today I have been most probably diagnosed with some disease which according to the Doctor is a very rare disease. The muscles of my hand have broken and have come down near the bend and have formed a mass. I would kindly request doctor's advise about the treatments available.

Hello, this seems like a type of fibromyositis, which often accompanies degenerative arthritis. Do you also have any form of arthritis, like Rheumatoid or gout?
Is the torn muscle mass tender to the touch or painful? Does it restrict your hand movements significantly?
A lot would depend upon the answers to these questions, because they would indicate whether the condition is due to a degenerative condition or no.
Also, what is the name of the probable disease your doctor told you? I'd like to know that!
