Suffer seasonal allergies, have pain in lower right back that increases while breathing or coughing. Treatment ?

Hi, I have asthma and play a lot of soccer throughout the spring. I also have seasonal allergies. However, I have been sick multiple times in the past month or two and now, I feel like I am getting worse. I have a pain in my lower right back that increases when I breathe or cough. I had strep 2 weeks ago, but my newest sickness is not strep. I had a fever last Thursday. It is becoming really hard for me to breathe even using my inhaler twice a day. It is also beginning to hurt my lungs and throat even more when I use my inhaler, and the lower back pain just gets worse throughout the day. Please help!

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back that you are having is not likely to be related to the seasonal allergies that you are having. This is more likely to be a muscular pain and is likely to subside on taking rest and mild pain killers.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

thanks for the query,

from the description that you gave to us, there are chances of some respiratory infection (respiratory tract or lung infection), which can be diagnosed by doing some lab investigations like blood examinations and x-ray chest for which you need to see your doctor nearby you.
your back may or may not be associated with your chest infection.
for which you need to get an x-ray of the spine as well.
because your back pain can be related to your chest infection or if it is due to some musculoskeletal problem , it will be clear by the x-ray and will also be supported by your blood tests.
so i would suggest to you to kindly see a doctor nearby you who can guide you with all the tests that you need to undergo. do not delay as you are already in lot of pain.

i hope this answers your query
wish you good health

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Low back pain you have seems to be muscular in origin.The treatment usually involves rest with pain killers in combination with the muscle relaxants along with good physiotherapy exercises.
Meanwhile you can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm. It is not likely to be related to the seasonal allergies that you are having.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
