no i didnt
Let me brief you.
Back pain has plenty of causes.
In women, especially after 40 years of age (I am sorry, I did not ask your age)
the bones become weak.
In women, if there are other factors such as vitamin D deficiency, calcium deficiency or due to excess weight
bones under go degeneration and weakness
resulting chronic back ache.
Now, if scans done revealed degeneration, then
it is evident that you have a weak spine.
This problem can be slightly corrected with calcium and vitamin supplements.
However at times when there are strenuous activities, pain can flare up.
Now since you have not had any strenuous activites
the back ache may be related to other causes.
Pelvic problems and renal stones are the next common cause of back pain which needs to be ruled out.
And for your information, injections given for pain does not cause back ache.
Now since the pain has flared up,
I suggest you to visit back the doctor.
Pelvic problems and renal stones can you breif me on it
He/she should examine you again if needed will order tests
to rule out acute exacerabation of previous back problem and
the renal stone/pelvic problem which I was talking about earlier.
Pelvic problems such as cyst, fibroids or others can present as back pain.
This pain is not due to the injection which you had yesterday.
He/she will give you further information after clinical examination and tests.
Have you followed?
will consult the doctor
Do you have any questions?
you can try warm compressess and topical pain balms
until you XXXXXXX the doctor.
It will reduce the pain.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
