Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lower back pain can be related to your previous injury history, but it may not. In general, pain that occurs due to injury occurs due to pinched nerves, excessive stretching of the muscles, herniation of the nucleus pulposus (sticking out of the spinal cord that clamps the nerve), fractured or broken bones, and so on. Usually, this pain has been felt since the time you experienced an injury, so it doesn't just appear after many years after the injury.
Apart from the effects of the injury, you may also experience pain in your lower back due to other factors, for example:
Curvature of the spine, for example: Scoliosis (abnormally curved spine) Lordosis (abnormally curved spine) Kyphosis (abnormally curved spine) Rheumatoid arthritis (joint inflammation due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism ) Osteoarthritis (inflammation of the joints and calcification of the bones) Herpes zoster and post herpetic neuralgia (shingles and pain after recovering from shingles) Disorders of internal organs, for example: Kidney stones, kidney infections Pelvic inflammation Irritable bowel syndrome Fissure ani Hernia Ovarian cysts Endometriosis Disorders prostate (in men), etc. If the pain is very disturbing, especially if it appears accompanied by other complaints, such as fever, numbness or weakness in the lower legs, difficulty controlling bowel movements, menstrual disorders, and so on, then you should check it directly at doctor, yes .. If suspected negligence nan serious that requires special treatment, the doctor may also perform supporting tests, such as X-rays, blood tests, CT scans, urine tests, ultrasound, and so on.
In the meantime, you should first compress the painful area with a warm compress and avoid stretching or excessive pressure on your lower back area, for example when pulling or lifting heavy weights. Pay close attention to your posture while doing activities, don't bend too much first. Always maintain your ideal weight and exercise regularly. To help reduce pain, you can also take paracetamol before going to your doctor.
Hope it helps ..
