I thought my back went out. Could not walk by
acute muscle spasm or possible gravels in urinary system.
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have read your query and here is my advise.
* Possible acute muscle spasm causing difficulty in walking with lesser chances of
calculus in the urinary system.
Kindly give additional information so that I can answer your query in details.
1. Pain - exact location over back, type, radiation if anywhere ?
2. Associated difficulty in urination ?
3. Previous episodes of similar pain ?
Awaiting for your response.
follow up .
Thanks for the relevant details.
* Possibly muscle spasm most likely as per the information of radiation to knee as well.
My guidelines at present
- Heating pad application for 5 minutes each to the area 2-3 times a day.
- Local spray of analgesic containing diclofenac also works fantastic.
- Analgesic as ibuprofen or paracetamol if no history of drug sensitivity, to be consumed
after meals 2-3 times a day.
- Avoid sudden bending or excess weight bearing.
- Visit once your primary care physician for discussion regarding the need of an x-ray to
rule out any developing arthritis issue of spine or else.
Wish you best health.
