Having lower back pain. How to cure this? - Online Doctor Chats
Low back pain
Can u mention your age ?
the pain is from last 8 days
how did it start ?
May i know your occupation ?
8 days back i was cleaning my scooter, i need to climb up and down for 3 times as i stay above a 3 storied building
after that my pain started
so , has the pain, subsided in anyway, or has it remained same or decreased ?
Are u taking any medications , for the pain ?
Does the pain subside by taking rest , or sleep ?
so you have been advised muscle relaxants ? have they helped ?
the medication started 4 days back
The most likely cause of your back pain, is due to muscle strain, which occurs due to the stress while cleaning your bike
there is nothing to worry about
the best way to reduce the pain, would be to do stretching exercises every 30-45 mins, by getting off the chair, and have a short walk.
application of heat, will also help
but sir....will you for a while listen to my current problem
difficulty in bending, standing for 20-25 mnts, pain moving bottom of spine to various directions
i got a similar kind of pain eight months back...but it was much less than this time and healed automatically
Your symptoms are due to deconditioning of your muscles, and your condition can be improved by stretch exercises
taking the muscle relaxants prescribed by your doctor will help to improve your symptoms
u can do the exercises as described in the following webpage -
ok....do i need to go for further investigation,like X-ray,MRI?
how much time it may take to overcome all these? this is affecting my official as well as personal life too...
do the exercises as described , in this page - WWW.WWWW.WW
your symptoms will improve with time, rest and relaxation for a few days
also improve your fitness by doing regular exercises, walks or jogging
this way, you will not get similar episodes in the future, with work or trvel related stresses
do i need to take rest instead of working
sir, i used to walk 1 hour everyday
regular activity can be started without any issues
if u feel your symptoms are severe, then 1 -2 days of rest can be taken to rejenuate yourself
you should restart walking , once you regain your fitness
but not just now
for now relax, do some stretch exercises as described
you will feel better, within a day or two
just for a chance
Hope you followed my suggestions
is there any chance for spine problem?
in the lumber region?
i do not suspect them
your symptoms do not suggest that way
if you had them, you would have issues like urine and bowel problems
trouble walking, etc
since you dont have such issues, neurological problems can be ruled out
All your symptoms and the way they have presented point to Musculoskeletal sprain and the treatment you are undergoing , are sufficient for the time being
As i mentioned , just now, you do not have neurological defects ,
how much time it may take to get cured?
hence i do not suspect any major neurological issues
time taken - should not be more than 2-3 days with proper rest
and exercises that i have described, will help to hasten your recovery
one thing i would like to mention...as i am a computer professional....i used to get neckpain....x-ray showed reduced cervical lordosis earlier....i took zevanuron for that
most of the time IT professionals , might not follow a good posture while working
can i come back in 30 mnts plz???
and also, they may not exercise, to improve their body fitness
the chat time will get over, by then
ok...then let us continue..plz give me ur views
as i mentioned, doing regular stretching exercises and improveing your fitness, will help you avoid such things
working on a PC, causes people to work continuously, with a stiff posture
to prevent this, get off your table every 30 -45 min
and take a walk and stretch yourself
regular exercises will also keep u fit
healthy diet and exercise , will help u keep a good weight , and this is very important for a good work life
may i know ur weight ??
and height ?
60 kg...hegiht 160 cm
you have a good weight for your height
so just maintain it , and improve on your fitness
there is no need to worry about major issues at your age
have u followed my suggestions ?
Do u have any doubts or questions ?
so according to you i should wait for some more time?
yes, within the next 2-3 days you should be fine
ok....then thank you sir
continue the medications miofree and myoril for few more days
and follow the advice , i have given about exercises, and you should be fine
ok...are they pain killers?
yes, they are muscle relaxants, and relieve pain due to muscle rigidity
Hope your query has been answered well, and you do not have any doubts
Ok, take care and have a quick recovery
just last thing....i f i dont take the pain killers....will that be a problem?
u will have to endure the pain
if you do not take them
it is better to take the medications , which will help u work better and get back to shape quicker
Take care, and have a good day. bye for now
