Frequent Sweating And Spinal Pain At Night?
Good evening, I want to ask. I am a patient with bone tuberculosis, but it has been declared to stop the medicine by the hospital about 1 year ago. R nBut lately, every night I sleep, I sweat unnaturally and feel pain in my spine again. What are the chances of the disease coming back? Explanation please. Thank you
Hello, Anisa Setiani, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Spinal tuberculosis is an infection of the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis of the spine, often called Pot's Diasease. The treatment is long and requires patience and patience. According to the medical literature, with correct antituberculosis therapy and good adherence, the chance of spinal TB recurrence is about 2%. There is still a small chance of relapse, but several other conditions can also be a possible cause of complaints of pain in the spine, for example:
1. There is an injury to the spine, back muscles, or spinal cord
2. Scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine resembling the letter S
3. Osteoarthritis, namely joint stiffness due to damage to cartilage in the joints
4. Complications from previous spinal TB disease. Spinal TB can cause bone damage, deformities (deformities), to spinal cord disorders.
5. New spinal TB
To determine the cause, further examination by a doctor is needed. The doctor will conduct an interview regarding your complaint, a physical examination, and supporting examinations such as x-rays, MRI, complete blood count, etc.
To relieve complaints, you can try taking painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen and you can apply an anti-pain cream to the sore spot. Rest your body and avoid lifting or pulling heavy objects, avoid straining, and avoid bending too much.
If the pain gets worse, there is a decrease in appetite, fever, weight loss, tingling feeling in the hands or feet, weakness in the hands or feet, unable to move, you should immediately see a doctor for immediate treatment.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
