Good afternoon, I want to ask about my problem that I have ever asked. I have felt a pain in the lower back for 4 days and when I look down at the legs it also hurts a little, unlike usual when I am healthy. And when doing activities that smell like looking down becomes sick. Is it permissible to massage it like that and think I am suffering from this? Thank you

Hi Ronnrom,

Thank you for asking

There are many possible causes for pain in the lower back that can extend to the legs. Usually, this pain is aggravated by improper posture, for example when you look down too much, sleep on a cushion that is too soft, lift objects that are too heavy while bending over, sit too upright or even bend, and so on.

Most often, pain from the lower back to the legs results from muscle tension (myalgia). This condition can happen to anyone, especially those who rarely exercise, have certain vitamin or mineral deficiencies, are elderly, or have certain diseases, for example fibromyalgia, polymyositis, muscle dystonia, and so on.

In addition to muscle pain, your complaints may also arise due to other causes, for example:

Sciatic pain (irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve) Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism) Osteoarthritis (inflammation of the bones and joints) Ankylosing spondylitis (spinal stiffness) Herniation of the nucleus pulposus (protrusion of the spinal pads that pinch the surrounding nerves) Spondylolisthesis (shifting of the spine) Nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) Pyelonephritis (kidney infection) Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) Fissure of the ani (tear of the anal wall), etc. It is best to avoid massaging the painful area, unless it has been declared safe by the doctor who examined you. Because, it is feared, the pain you experience is related to disorders of the nerves, bones, or joints which can worsen with excessive pressure or massage.

At this time, you should first check your complaint with the doctor so that it is evaluated more deeply, not only through physical examination, but also x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, urine test, and so on if needed. That way, the doctor can determine the best treatment according to the condition that underlies your complaint.

In order to reduce pain, rather than massage, it will be safer if you first take pain relievers, such as paracetamol. Improve your posture when you are doing activities, avoiding the body positions as mentioned above, because they can cause aggravation of pain. Exercise regularly, maintain ideal body weight, and also live a healthy lifestyle.

I hope this helps.
