Lower Back Pain?
Hello, I want to ask. My age is 14 years. My spine or the middle of my waist is aching and aching. I forget when it started happening, but about 1 year ago until now. The aches and pains are only related, for example when I travel by car – maybe because it takes too long to feel pain? When I was sleeping and sitting relaxed even with pain suddenly. Sometimes it’s just normal aches and pains, and I can still stand it. But sometimes the feeling of pain is really painful. At my young age of 14 is that normal? Or do I need to see a doctor? I am afraid because when I search on Google, there are some characteristics of cancer, blkng nerve, etc. Please enlighten me, sorry if it is difficult to understand “Thank you very much”
Hello Dwiiiii Thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Previously the doctor needed additional information about your complaint, whether the pain felt spread to the area of the foot, whether there are disturbances during urination such as plaiting, pain when urinating? Do you have a history of abnormal vaginal discharge or bad odor? Are there complaints such as numbness or tingling in the feet, whether there is weakness or strength in the foot, if you have a history of accidents or falls, whether the pain will worsen when sneezing, or coughing.
Some causes of your complaint include:
Disorders of the spinal cord (nucleus pulposus herniation, spinal stenosis, Piriformis syndrome)
Pain in the body due to injury, fall or due to muscle that is used continuously
Spinal deformity (scoliosis)
Urinary tract infection
Pain in the lumbar region can be caused by disorders of the kidneys, injured muscles, nerves, or body posture errors. To establish the exact cause of your complaint, you should consult a neurologist because the doctor requires a physical examination, nerve examination, or radiological examination such as CT-Scan or MRI to see the condition of your muscles, bones or nerves.
Some things you can do are:
Drinking enough water about 2 liters every day
Avoid the habit of holding back urination
Stretch before starting the sport
Avoid heavy exercise or lifting weights
Maintain body weight to remain ideal
Improve posture when sitting or standing
Cold and warm compresses alternately to relieve pain and to relax muscles
You can take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol.
Hopefully this information can be useful and hopefully get well soon.
