Is Lower Back Pain A Symptom Of Corona?
Morning dock. A few days ago I read in one of the posts that joint pain is one of the unconscious symptoms of corona. Nearly 1 week I have experienced lower back pain, to pray at the bow only can not. But I did not experience other corona symptoms such as fever, headache, nausea, colds. Is the lower back pain near the waist only back pain or is it a symptom of corona doc? Thank you, doctor
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of low back pain can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Spinal deformities such as scoliosis
Cracks between bones that are disrupted causing nerve pinch such as HNP.
Osteoporosis / reduced bone density
Urinary tract stones
To ascertain the exact cause of the complaint, it requires a direct examination starting from a complete physical examination and additional examinations such as plain spine photographs, MRI, and other additional examinations. If the cause of the complaint is inflammation the doctor will give anti-inflammatory drugs, if it leads to trauma or bone abnormalities the doctor will do an evaluation.
For now, some things you can do at home are:
Avoid lifting objects that are too heavy
Rest by sitting / lying down when a complaint is felt
Compressing parts of the pain can help relieve symptoms
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Drinking water and exercising regularly
Maintain body shape
Paracetamol can be consumed to relieve symptoms
For now, it's a good idea to stay home and postpone consultations because of the Corona virus infection. But if there is an emergency situation such as complaints that cause you can not move, or feel weak in certain parts of the body immediately contact your doctor or neurologist.
That is all and thank you.
