Yesterday was lab, and the medicine has run out, but so far there has been no change at all, what should I do? And how is the medicine. thank you
Hello Setya, thank you for asking.
Pain in the pelvic area can be caused by various things. Conditions that cause spinal disorders, spinal nerves, pelvic bones, pelvic area nerves, pelvic area muscles, all of which may cause symptoms of pelvic pain. What is your mother's previous medical history, history of surgery if present, history of treatment, or previous trauma (accident). Some things that might happen, for example:
Hernia pulposus hernia. Often known as the layman 'pinched nerve'. Depending on the location of the abnormality, the nucleus pulposus hernia can affect various kinds of spinal nerves. Symptoms generally include low back to hip pain, difficulty walking or moving lower limbs, tingling, thigh pain to calves.
Spinal compression fracture. In the elderly, spinal compression compression is easy to occur which causes a variety of symptoms.
Ischialgia. Inflammation of the large nerves in the pelvic region.
Piriformis syndrome. Muscle stiffness of the waist, buttocks, pelvis area.
Pelvic area infection.
Tumor area in the pelvis or waist.
You must bring your mother to consult with an orthopedic doctor or neurologist. If necessary, the doctor will conduct a supporting examination such as MRI or CT-scan, to find the location of the abnormality. Without a thorough examination, it is difficult to overcome the symptoms. The drugs given are only limited to reducing symptoms. But to be able to solve the problem completely, the cause must be known. Apply a warm or cold compress to the affected area. Try sleeping hard enough so that when lying down, the spine and pelvis are not bent.
Thus the brief information that I can give. Hope it can be useful. Regards.
