Back pain, not able to bend, never been pregnant. What does this mean?

Ive had a heavy period for almost 3 weeks in a half, close to 4weeks. Ive never had a irregular period.. never missed been late or had extra days. I get light headed here and there. I have extreme painful stomach aches, not cramps . Its hard to explain exactlly what the pain but its between the middle of my stomach and below my breast line. It is hard to explain how it feels but out of a rate 1-10 it will get to a 10. Feels like someone is jus eating my inside taring them apart. the pain is so extreme its whips my whole body out. Recently i was having bad back problems at first it felt like a pich nerve but it lasted for about 3 4 days i wasent able to bend over or everytime i go to stand up id have this sharp sticking pain in my back when i sat down anything. ive never been pregnet never was able to get pregnet. Im not sure what this means ?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the lower back that you have described is likely to be due to a muscular pain. You can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel over the area for symptomatic relief. Oral muscle relaxants may be needed if the pain is persistent.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for writing to us.
From description it seems you might be suffering Mechanical back pain.
It is a common medical problem.Mechanical back pain implies the source of pain is in the spine and/or its supporting structure. The surrounding muscles and ligaments may develop reactive spasm and pain.
1. Lie on hard bed
2. Taking muscle relaxants in combination with mild pain killers will help you.
3. Hot water fomentation to back 2-3 times a day and applying a local analgesic gel on the affected area will also help in providing a relief.
4. Physiotherapy - Interferential therapy (IFT) to your back will help you relieve the pain
5. Avoid driving, leaning forward, sitting for prolonged time or lifting heavy weights. These activities can increase your back pain.
You can start with swimming and mild aerobic exercises. These do help a lot in the back pain.
Wishing you good health...

Hello Madam,

Firstly, calm down!

It looks like Premenstrual syndrome to me. I hope it only lasts a few days before and after your periods. How old are you?

However, I would like to suggest the following simple herbal medications:

* KUMARYASAVAM: Take 20 ml (4 spoons) of the syrup with 2 pills of RAJO-PRAVARTINI VATI to be taken twice daily - morning and evening - after food.

I am sure this will be enough to take care of your problem.

Take care.
