Pain In The Lower Left Back Area?
Good evening, I want to ask about my father.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are many possible triggers for pain in the lower back area on the left. It needs to be clarified first, did your father previously have a history of injuries, for example from falling in a sitting position? How old is he currently? Does his current pain complaint make it difficult for your father to control his urge to defecate, urinate, or feel numb and have difficulty moving his legs? How was the result of the examination conducted by the neurologist before on your father?
Some of the possibilities that can cause pain like what your father experienced are:
Lower back or coccyx injuries, for example those that cause fractures or displacement of joints Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism) Pinched nerves, for example due to tumors, herniation of the nucleus pulposus, spinal stenosis Infections, eg Lyme disease, syphilis, HIV / AIDS Kidney disorders, eg stones, infection or cancer Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) Fibromyalgia (spreading musculoskeletal pain accompanied by changes in mood, memory and cognitive function) Abnormalities of spinal curvature, eg scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, urethritis (inflammation urethra), and so on. When enduring intense pain, the body can release many inflammatory mediators (inflammation). This can cause the body to feel hot and cold and sweat excessively. So, this condition does not specifically refer to any particular disease,
We recommend that you check your father back to the doctor for further treatment. Usually, the doctor will perform a thorough test, ranging from x-rays, laboratory, CT scan, MRI, and so on if deemed necessary.
Meanwhile, your father can reduce the pain by taking the drug paracetamol while compressing the painful area with warm water. Get plenty of rest, namely by lying on a comfortable (not too soft) bed. Avoid pulling or lifting objects that are too heavy at first, especially while bending over. Stay away from excessive stress and do light exercise as much as possible. Drink lots of drinking and do not often hold back the urge to urinate.
Hope this helps ..
