Back Pain (2 Weeks) And Runny Nose Almost A Month?
Tonight, my name is Qori, 19 years old. It’s been 2 weeks of my middle backbone (almost parallel to the lowest ribs). I feel pain, at first I thought it was due to wrong sleeping position or normal aches. But until now the pain is still felt even though it can still be held. Sometimes I also have a slight fever and my head feels heavy at night, and in my left ear something is blocking me, but it doesn’t interfere with my hearing but it just feels uncomfortable. I once checked into a clinic, and he said it was the effect of a cold. Is back pain also the effect of a cold? And is it natural if the pain is prolonged? Thank you in advance
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
In your case complaints of fever and runny nose may not be related to the onset of symptoms of low back pain. The cause of complaints of low back pain can vary greatly, including disorders of the urinary tract, muscular disorders to innervation of the spine. Some medical conditions that can cause low back pain symptoms include:
- Kidney stones
- Urinary tract infection
- Kidney infection
- Kidney cyst
- Kidney abscess
- Kidney swelling
- Muscle spasm
- Spinal inflammation
- Spinal cord squeezed
- Spinal injury
- Spinal arch abnormalities
In such conditions more information about the characteristics of pain (pain location, nature of pain, intensity of pain, factors that trigger pain, factors that ease pain, spread of pain), other symptoms that accompany low back pain, risk factors that exist in patients, and physical examination to be able to determine the exact diagnosis of a collection of symptoms. Additional tests can also help doctors diagnose, for example by examining urine, blood, ultrasound, x-rays, CT scans, and so forth.
After the diagnosis can be established then further directed therapy is given. Therefore, do not hesitate to consult a doctor to get further treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
