Causes And Overcome Back Pain?
, for several years now my backbone often aches, especially when I drink warm water which tends to be rather hot. The pain is so bad that I stretched to feel the pain. I want to ask, what is my pain?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sensation of pain and heat that feels in the back area can be caused by disorders of internal organs (such as the stomach, heart, lungs), skin, muscles, nerves, and other tissues that support it. This complaint, if it feels great enough to limit activities, it should not be left alone. You should check it directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine, especially if the complaint appears accompanied by fever, vomiting, spasms, palpitations, numbness, weakness of movement, or other danger signs.
Some conditions that are prone to cause pain and heat in the back are:
Pinched nerve, can be due to an infection or tumor that urges the spinal cord, due to abnormalities of spinal curvature, herniation of the intervertebral discs
Post herpes neuralgia
Peripheral neuropathy, often due to diabetes
Neurotropic vitamin or mineral deficiency
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD, backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus)
Others, such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, pleurisy, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, psychosomatic disorders, viral or bacterial infections, etc.
The following initial handling you can do to improve complaints:
Compress your back with warm water or ice cubes
Avoid carelessly sorting the back area
Be careful when doing activities, make sure your posture is always ergonomic, don't get used to sitting sideways leaning to one side or bending for a long time
Regularly exercise every day, especially stretching sports, for example, gymnastics, yoga, or swimming
Don't overdo heavy lifting
Take paracetamol if the pain has not subsided yet
Don't stress too much
Always live a healthy lifestyle
Eat regularly (do not eat too late), consume more foods rich in vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, magnesium, and potassium
Mild conditions can often improve with natural treatment as we have explained above. However, if the complaint has not subsided, it usually requires a thorough neurological examination or assisted with supporting tests, for example X-ray, laboratory, MRI, CT scan, etc. to detect the possibility of a serious condition. Therefore, do not hesitate to check with your doctor or neurologist if the complaint still does not improve after undergoing the steps above.
I hope this helps.
