Hello,rnI am a 26 year old woman.rnSince high school/college, I occasionally experience pain in the middle of the back (right in the spine) that radiates to the teeth.rnSometimes the pain also extends to the lower back. rnIt feels like aches and pains, but even though I want to massage it, it doesn’t work.rnrnNot sure when I feel the pain, but often when it’s cold or like when a thunderstorm is about to occur, even though the room temperature is actually normal. and other people (including me) no one feels the cold.rnrnEvery time the pain appears, I at least give a balm that is bandaged along the spine (neck-waist) to feel warm and it feels like I can’t straighten my body , it just feels like bending it backwards (like almost heaven). But sometimes the pain suddenly goes away on its own.rnrnThis honestly traumatized me, so if the weather is a little cold, or the weather is cloudy, I immediately warm up and worry.rnr nCan the doctor help explain? Because I myself want to check directly with the doctor, but I’m confused about which specialist should I go for the right treatment.rnrnThank you very much in advance.

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Back pain can be caused by various things, ranging from muscle injury, nerves, kidney disorders, to disorders of the digestive tract. However, it is not uncommon for back pain to radiate to the teeth, especially if the pain is in the middle of the back because it is too broad.


Among the several possibilities that can explain the condition you are experiencing are abnormalities in the nerves and abnormalities in the joints. This is possible because the nerves are one part that is sensitive to cold. In fact, in the condition of Bell's palsy, the facial nerves can seem paralyzed just from exposure to cold air, even if it's only from the air conditioner or cold tiles.


The same goes for joint pain. Although the mechanism is uncertain, experts agree that people who have joint diseases such as rheumatism or osteoarthritis, will be more able to feel changes in weather because of the pain in the joints they feel whenever the air temperature drops.


So in your condition, the one who can help you is either a neurologist or an orthopedic specialist. Our advice is to check your condition with a bone specialist first, because your complaint is more likely to be painful and there are no other nervous disorders such as numbness or thickness, weakness, and so on. Get well soon.


That's all, hope it helps.
