Question: yes. I know I have Rheumitorid Arthritis, but right now my lower back hurts quite a lot. I have nausea, loose stools, drained feeling and pain in my lower abdomen. I also have degenerative lower back as well. Urine is dark yellow.

Also, I seem to have a gland on the right side of my neck that swells and then when I rub it for a while in goes away.....

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
Yes, it is hard to define exact cause without further tests.

However, your symptoms may be suggestive of acute or chronic pancreatitis or liver insufficiency. It would be good to check pancreatic and liver markers and do an abdominal ultrasound for a start. RA may or may not be related, it may sometimes lead to back pain but abdominal symptoms are not usual manifestation of RA. This neck swelling may indicate lymph node which can enlarge din some infectious or inflammatory diseases such as mononucleosis or hepatitis.

I suggest to have plenty of fluids, raspberry tea, have easier diet, avoid coffee, alcohol and fried spicy food.

Wish you good health

I m taking 30mg Flexeril and 800mg Ibuprofen for back pain and before I fell asleep last night there was a very intense tightness in my chest and it worried me. I smoke between 5-10 cigarettes a day and was wondering if the combination of the cigarettes and Flexeril may have propagated the symptom.

I have a complicated 7 year history of low back pain with radicular symptoms after prolapsing 2 discs at L4/ L5 when moving house and then L5/ S1 18 months ago. The subsequent CT (can t have MRI due to SCS) apparently showed no nerve impingement or stenosis. 11 weeks ago I had surgery to implant a 2nd lead into my SCS which was implanted 2 years ago and went back to work a month ago. Since my return, my back pain has got really bad, as has the sciatica. It has prgressed over this period so that last weekend I had electric shock type pains in my legs and then I m now getting very bad pins & needles and tingling in both legs, my back, my lower abdomen and yesterday also my saddle area . Today I just have it in my legs, hips and low back as well as burning pain down the sides of my legs but as the day goes on it generally gets worse and at night I can t feel the stimulation from my SCS as it is so stroing. It feels like I have cool water running down from my lower back and down both legs. I have an appointment for reprogramming at the end of the week. Do I take this progression seriously as possibly cauda equina syndrome or similar or leave it and see how it progresses? Many thanks.

I am 18 years old and about a week ago I woke up with SUDDEN knee and elbow pain and I have no idea why. For the past week I have been living with this pain and when I take ibuprofen the pain seems to go away for the day. But when I go to sleep and wake up in the morning, the pain is back. I am only 18 and I fear a serious problem meaning my young life is over and I would like to find out what this sudden pain may be and what I can do about it.
