Sore lower back, right hip, constantly hurts. Bruises in arms, legs. Cure?

I have a sore right lower back just where my back dimple is, which is starting to move towards my right hip area as well. It hurts constantly, especially when I get up from sitting or lying down. I also have heaps of random bruises over my arms and legs, as well as a bruise where my back dimple is, exactly where it hurts.

Thanks for posting your query,

*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. Do adequate warming up before starting the exercises daily.
Taking calcium and vitamin D 3 supplements will also help in early recovery. You can get these prescribed from your orthopedician.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful.
