Causes Of Pain In The Left And Hardened Lumbar?
I feel pain above the left side of the lumbar bone inside, if it hardens, what do I think about it
Hello dear Chelsea,
Back pain can be caused by various problems that occur in the structure of the waist or the organs in it. Here are some possible causes:
muscle tension (spasms) - usually associated with activities that occur suddenly and are too strenuous, generally resolved with rest and a physical exercise program (physiotherapy)
spinal stenosis - narrowing of the spine that causes pressure on the spinal nerves
kidney disease - especially upper back pain, either from infection or urinary tract stones
damage to muscles and / or bones that make up the waist, for example hip fracture, displacement of the spine
(women only) reproductive organ abnormalities - eg ovarian cysts, endometriosis, uterine myoma
At the back of the waist it is normal for you to feel a spinal ridge called the spinous process, especially in thin people. The presence of a bony protrusion that feels hard cannot confirm that there is an abnormality of this structure. To be sure, the doctor can recommend additional examinations, such as x-rays of the spine and pelvis in two positions, namely the front and side. After the underlying cause is confirmed, then the appropriate treatment steps are determined.
If the waist area feels unbearable pain, you should:
rest and limit movement in the area
warm compress for 10-20 minutes, repeat 3-4 times a day
take pain relievers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen according to the recommended use listed on the package
Hopefully this is useful
