Pain Aching In The Buttocks To The Back Of The Thigh?
At night I often feel pain aching pain in the buttocks to the back of the thigh sometimes the right part sometimes the left …. sometimes not but later it appears again
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should also describe, exactly when the pain recurred, whether it was triggered by a particular movement or position, did it occur suddenly or slowly became more painful, whether there was a history of trauma or previous injury, whether there was redness or swelling in the area of pain , how the characteristics of pain are felt (whether pain such as electric shock, or pain that is dull and felt on the inside of the foot, or pain feels radiating).
Pain as you feel can be caused by pinching of the spinal nerves (can be due to disc herniation, tumors of the spine, fractures / fractures in the spine, bleeding or infection of the spine), injury to the muscles (for example due to wrong position when exercising or exercise without warming up first, injury after an accident), disorders of the bone, for example if there is a fracture / crack on the bone, infection of the bone, or tumor on the bone.
To be able to ascertain the cause of the pain, you should do an examination with an orthopedic doctor first so that you can do a physical examination directly and also additional examinations (such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRI) if it is felt necessary. For now, there are a number of things you can do:
Try to improve your sitting and sleeping position (note the ergonomic position when you sit if you work a lot in a sitting position, don't sleep in an oblique position to one side continuously)
Avoid lifting heavy objects for a while
Use a special corset to help support your waist
Do a gentle massage on the area of your lower back, buttocks, and thighs (don't massage, massage gently only)
Compress the lower back area and the painful area with a warm compress
Take pain relievers such as paracetamol if pain is very annoying
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
