Causes And Treats Left Back Pain?
Morning, I have a question. Why does my left hip hurt when I lift my right leg? Then when he was on the motorbike, suddenly pain appeared in the upper left thigh to the knee. Please inform me whether there is any medicine to relieve muscle pain other than Mefenamic Acid, because all this time I have been taking Mefenamic Acid to reduce the pain. Is this just pain alone, or is there another disease? thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Back pain, as well as thigh to knee in most cases occurs due to muscle pain (myalgia). This pain occurs especially when you perform extreme movements, especially with an unergonomic posture, including if you stretch your legs excessively when you want to ride a motorcycle. There are many factors that can increase a person's risk of experiencing muscle pain, including aging, immobility, lack of exercise, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, or having a history of injuries and other illnesses.
It could also, in addition to muscle pain, your complaints arise due to other causes, for example:
Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders / rheumatism) Pinched spinal nerves Inguinal hernia (protruding intestines due to weak abdominal wall) Bursitis (inflammation of the joint bursa) Kidney stones Osteoarthritis (arthritis and calcification) Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons) Urinary tract infections Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes) If you are a man, it may also appear due to epididymitis, hydrocele, testicular torsion, varicocele. The best treatment can only be known after the cause is identified. Giving anti-pain medication can indeed relieve pain, but not necessarily cure it if the cause is still unknown. Therefore, we recommend that you avoid taking mefenamic acid in the long term, especially without the supervision of a doctor. It would be safer if you take paracetamol as an initial aid before going to the doctor because the potential side effects are more minimal.
Next, check with your doctor for a thorough evaluation. It could also be, further examinations such as X-rays, laboratories, CT scans, and so on will be carried out by a doctor.
In addition to taking anti-pain medication, you should pay more attention to your body position when you are active. Limit overstretching your lower leg to prevent the pain from recurring. Compress the painful body area using warm water, but avoid doing excessive massage, especially if it has not been declared safe by a doctor. Use comfortable pants, and limit activities that are too strenuous using the side of the leg that often hurts.
Hope it helps ya..
