Complaints Of Low Back Pain, Lower Abdomen, And Thighs With A History Of Accidents?
Hello, I am 17 years old. When I was 11, I had a motorcycle accident that made it difficult for me to walk for one day after the accident. I fell in a sitting position that slammed onto the asphalt. the past two years, I often experience pain in the waist, thighs above the genitals when doing simple activities, such as sweeping, mopping and even riding a motorcycle. How is that? Please answer .. thank you ..
Hello, good morning Andini ...
Complaints of low back pain, lower abdomen (above the genitals), and thighs that you experience, are less likely to be related to the accident you experienced 6 years ago, moreover from the results of the examination at that time stated that there were no abnormalities. Injury to the ligaments (tissue that connects bones in the body) during an accident may still cause pain as you experience it.
Apart from the history of the injury you have experienced, complaints of low back pain, lower abdomen, and thighs can be caused by other possibilities, including:
urinary tract infection
urinary tract stones (kidney stones, bladder stones)
disorders of the muscles and nerves
infections of the reproductive tract in women, for example pelvic inflammatory disease (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease / PID)
To ascertain whether the complaint that you are experiencing at this time is still related to the history of the accident that you are experiencing, we recommend that you consult a orthopedic specialist. The doctor will conduct questions and answers about complaints, conduct a physical examination, and if needed the doctor will suggest further examinations such as X-ray examination, or MRI. If the examination by an orthopedic doctor does not find abnormalities in the bones or ligaments due to the history of the accident you have experienced, your doctor may refer you to a specialist in internal medicine to find out other causes of your condition, such as urinary tract infections, urinary tract stones, and others. Your doctor may suggest a urine lab test, an X-ray of the stomach, or an ultrasound to confirm it. We hope that you do not delay the examination to the doctor, considering this complaint has been a long time you experienced (2 years).
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
