HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern looking to the history given here I could say that the best way to get rid of backache is Tab Ibuprofen 400mg three times in day, still I would suggest to treat the underlying cause of pain instead of taking analgesic hope this information helps you, take care and have a nice day.

Hi I m Praveen, 28 years old. Last year I got some back pain and consulted doctor. After physiotherapy no improvements seen. Then went for MRI scan. The report was, Disc bulge in L5-S1. Doctor suggested for bed rest but still no improvement in my condition. Then I went for Yoga therapy. For about 9 to 10 months everything was fine. But now again I m started getting pain after sitting for long hours. Is there any permanent solution for this? If yes, please suggest me.

I have a pain/ache in my lower back, right hand side and a pain/ache around the same place in my lower abdomen, right hand side. The pain feels the same in my back as in my abdomen. It is more like a throbbing ache than a definite pain. It is intermittent and comes and goes and can last for up to 2 - 3 days. I am 49 and had a Marina coil fitted a few years ago as I had period problems. I haven t had a period for about a year but not sure if this is the coil or my age!! Any ideas what the pain/ache could be?

I delivered my last child on August 31, 2010. Eight weeks after, I had my post-partum check up and had an IUD inserted. By the end November 2010, I started noticing a pain in my left flank area. It was a dull aching pain, but when massaged deeply, would go down my back, wrap around the front of my hip and make the front of my leg go numb. I went to the chiropractor for about two months, then with no results, visited my primary doctor. Blood and urine tests were fine. MRI showed slight bulging in the RIGHT L5, S1 discs. Went to 25 physical therapy visits with still no relief. I gave up for a while on finding out what was wrong. By February 2012 (guessing), I had my Mirena pulled out by my OBGYN. I had been having lots of stomach pain and my husband had a vasectomy, so I really didn t need the birth control anymore anyway. By October 2012, I believe, I had an ultrasound because I was having lots of pain and cramping in my stomach. Results were normal. By then end of 2012, I was experiencing extreme fatigue and visited my new primary doctor. We tried different antidepressants until I stayed on Effexor XR beginning April 2013. I started seeing a massage therapist once a week beginning in probably August of 2013 for my back, with no relief at all. Extreme fatigue continued and after blood work kept coming back fine, he sent me to a cardiologist. In November 2013 I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). I was put on 5mg of Midodrine 3 times a day. My fatigue disappeared almost immediately. The pain in my back has always been there since November of 2010, but I was ready to try again since I was seeing a new primary doctor. He sent me to a pain management doctor who has now done 3 nerve injections, all with no relief from the flank pain (Deep massage did not seem to bother and make the front of my leg go numb though). Another MRI was ordered, and this one had the same results as the first, except I had a mild dehydration on the left side at L4,L5. My primary doctor still did not believe it was the cause for my flank pain, so he ordered a CT. Those results came back this week showing I had a swollen uterus. Since I am up do date with my pap smears and I had an ultrasound that showed nothing about 18 months prior, he does not believe this is the reason for the left flank pain either. I am completely at a loss and don t know what to do next. The pain management doctor said that it could be from the POTS. It has been going on for so long now that want to go down every avenue and rule everything else out before I just accept it as a POTS symptom. Sometimes when lying on my stomach, it seems to relive a little bit of the flank pain. The massage has just been aggravating it lately, and also laying on my right side seems to aggravate it. Since I can pinpoint when the pain started, I ve wondered if it could have had something to do with my last delivery or even the epidural from the delivery. I could use any insight or ideas that could maybe trigger an idea for my primary doctor. It has been almost 4 years since I realized the pain starting (and I have a high pain tolerance, so it could have been there for longer). I know this is a lot of information, but thank you in advance!

I have had 2 spine surgeries (L4, L5) Discectomy 1st 15 years ago and the last June 2009. I was told at the last surgery I would have to have a fusion of L4, L5, sacrum. In the last few weeks, my back has been hurting alot along with my right testicle. I asked my Dr about this, and he said the 2 are not related. However, My testicle only hurts whne my back hurts and the Dr cannot give me another reaon for the pain. Is this because of the back pain? Also, if I do have the fusion, how much range of motion will I lose?
