Causes Of Pain In The Upper Left Back?
hallo. I want to ask, I experience back pain in the upper left. Every time I lift a little heavy burden, it always hurts, it hurts until I feel sore. Keep on feeling achy. Sometimes if I take pain medicine, it will disappear once a week. but now I take medicine for a short time when I lift the weight a little, it hurts immediately. Is this just an ordinary pain caused by exhaustion or a pinched vein or is there another possibility of disease？ Thank you, please answer.
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Back pain that you feel can be the following medical conditions:
Inflammation or muscle pain due to excessive muscle activity Pinching of the nerves Injury to the bones, muscles, ligaments, or nerves Herpes zoster virus infection in the back Abnormalities of bone position, such as scoliosis (bent bone to the side) Bone loss etc. To determine the cause of the condition, of course it requires a physical examination and supporting examination in advance by a doctor. For that, you should check your condition to a general practitioner first. If necessary, the doctor will carry out investigations such as x-rays, CT scans, or refer to certain specialists in accordance with the suspicion of the condition for further tracking.
As for what you should do is:
Limit heavy physical activity While avoiding first lifting heavy loads on your back Warm compresses on painful areas (except for injuries, do cold compresses) Avoid excessive body movements such as bending or tilting. Maintain an upright posture when you stand or sit. To help maintain this posture, you can use a back corset
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :),
