Chronic Back Pain Accompanied By Swelling In The Back?
Hello, I have been feeling pain in my back for the last 5 years especially on the left side. Usually the pain arises from sitting too long or too tired to stand and walk. But I feel it’s because of fatigue lifting weights. Lately I feel more painful because I sit too long to do work for hours, or carry a laptop that is quite heavy. I just realized that there is swelling in the middle of the back of the left side is bigger and harder than the right side, and tonight I feel the peak pain because it is not finished as usual. The pain is felt until the left knee and left shoulder. I feel that by pulling or doing the movements until the sound of cracking is usually good, but this time it isn’t. Why my back huh? thanks.
Back pain is actually pain that occurs along the spine, from the base of the neck to the coccyx. Usually caused due to problems in the vertebrae of the ith with the surrounding tissue such as muscles, blood vessels or nerves. Sprained muscle tissue / strain is usually a frequent cause of back pain complaints. Pain like this usually occurs when someone lifts too heavy or excessive exercise.
Conditions that you feel that have been too long actually is the accumulation of your initial condition, where the activity of lifting weights too heavy and sitting too long and other heavy activities can affect the muscles on your back, strain / stretching too much muscle can cause pain at the location of the excessive stretching. The activities that are not right and heavy are also repeated every day will cause abnormal posture, so that pain will appear in other places as well, as you said, which is on the left shoulder. Existing pain will pull other muscles and cause changes in your walking pattern which will also affect your waist and eventually your knee, so that your knee feels pain too.
To deal with your case that has been classified as long / chronic, it is better if you immediately check yourself directly to the orthopedic doctor / bone specialist so that you can be examined in detail. The examination can include a medical interview, physical examination, Rongten photo or it could be a CT scan. While what you need to do to reduce your complaints and the severity of your condition is to improve your sitting position properly where not too bent / bent, reduce your activities that are classified as heavy lifting heavy loads or standing too long, start by changing your lifestyle you by exercising low to moderate intensity to relax your muscles, you can choose various types of exercise that do not add to your condition worsening one example is swimming, position your sleep to relieve pain by placing a bolster under your knees when you sleep on your back and choose a sleeping mat that is not too soft so that your spine is in its normal position.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
