Should I Be Concerned About Having Pain In The Left Side Of My Back?

I have been having left side pain on the middle of my side but it can be in my back, chest and even my lower right side at times. No other symptoms at all. I had hernia repair with mesh 1 year ago. THe pain is tolerable just annoying. Should I be concerned?

Hello,

The pain on one side of the back can be postural in nature. Standing for long periods and lack of adequate exercise can cause such a pain. Oral muscle relaxants and regular exercises can help.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon
