Hello,

Please check your uric acid level in the blood. It may be gouty arthritis; at the same time go for complete blood study for rheumatism. Also, consult an orthopedic.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Christy J Thundiparambil, Ayurveda Specialist

I am a 29 year old female, 5 9, 142lbs. I had spinal fusion surgery december 2010 with instrumentation from T4 to L4. I have had increasing back pain since late July which has gotten progressively worse in August. For the past 3-4 weeks I had noticed in an increase in needing to urinate but I just thought I was drinking more. I also was having stomach pain/cramping and a lot of back pain but I attributed the stomach pain to IBS and the back pain to just worse back pain since I ve had surgery. Since this past week my back is swollen in spots. Friday night pain got worse, I had chills and muscle spasms. Then by Monday my entire spine felt like it was on fire with a lot of pain and stiffness particulary in my mid-upper back and neck. I went to see my general pracitioner Monday this week who found bacteria, white blood cells, nitrites and blood in my urine. She prescribed sulfameth trimethoprim to take with aleve. I have been on this since Monday. The burning sensation along my spine has decreased however there is alot of pressure in my back...just feels huge. I am having more pain in the mid-lower left side and there is swelling there and am very fatigued. I may have had a slight fever if any but my regular body temps always 96-97. Yesterday I developed more abdominal pain that wasn t there before and I am still having muscle spasms. My question is whether or not I need to seek additional medical treatment or if this is a normal response to antibiotic treatment and just wait it out . I have called my surgeons office and dr office but still haven t been called back and I don t know what to do. I am fearing a kidney infection and of course I m very concerned about any infection settling in my hardware along my spine. How do they check for a kidney and or spinal infection? Can you please recommend a course of action. I really don t want to go to an ER because I always feel like that s for trauma stuff but I don t know what other options I have at the moment. Please give me some guidance. Thank you.

Back pain (SI joint?) to the left of spine at belt level in healthy 26yo male I have had back pain for about two years that seems to be originating at the belt line, just to the left of my spine. Because of that, my whole lower back is tight and painful. The pain is worse with bending (such as to pick something up off the floor) and is pretty well always present. I also have noticed a little bit of numbness in the toes on my left foot, although most of the time it is very minor or undetectable. I m not sure if any one traumatic event caused the pain. I m healthy and active. I play softball, volleyball, and I work out. I can still do all these things; it s just the sore back sometimes bothers me or is aggravated if I jump or dive or something. I m 6 2 , weigh 195, and I don t smoke or drink. I had an X-ray of my back which the doctor said was normal. Also, when mentioning the pain to the doctor and describing the area, he mentioned it might be the SI joint. I have tried a handful of stretches and exercises that I have found online for low back pain, but so far. nothing really seems to hit the spot. I can t really afford to get an MRI at this point, which is what the doctor suggested as a next step, so I m trying other methods to figure out what might be wrong and what can be done to help it heal. Thank you for your time! Luke

I have had lower back pain issues over the past 40 years. Brought on by heavy lifting @ work or other times and lasting 2 or 3 days, during which Advil eases the symptoms. I also have sciatica symptoms on occasion lasting for the same time and treated the same way. Since the Saturday after Thanksgiving, however, I had lower back pain for about 2 weeks that Advil barely touched but improved slightly each day and have had sciatica pain daily since. The sciatica pain used to go down the back of my right ass cheek and stop behind my right knee, the current pain goes the entire length of my leg leaving my toes with a tingling sensation and the foot slightly weaker than the left.
