Right Upper Back Pain Has Been Almost 3 Years?
Afternoon doctor. It has been almost 3 years since I had back pain in the right upper back, the pain could be full-blown on the right side of the body, but the most pain was in the right upper back. The pain I felt could penetrate my chest, making sleep uncomfortable. I drank Asmef but the pain did not go away. 2 months ago I checked the urine for uric acid crystal positive results. My joints started to ache even though I was 24 years old. Is my gout related to back pain?
Thank you Nita Fatun for the question on the HealthReplies.com forum, back pain conditions can be caused by several conditions such as:
- muscle ache
- bone problems
- heart problems
- breathing problems
- spinal gout
In general, back pain is caused by muscle problems, where work and activity factors are one of the causes that usually cause this condition. Where in this condition symptoms can arise in the form of:
- pain in the area concerned
- The pain is felt more when the muscle is used
- motion weakness
However, the condition of back pain can also be caused quite rarely, namely the condition of spinal gout, this condition is associated with high uric acid conditions resulting in a buildup of uric crystals in the spinal joints. In this condition, symptoms can occur in the form of:
- pain around the back or even to the neck
- high uric acid levels
- may be accompanied by nervous complaints such as tingling
In such conditions, you should be able to consult again with the doctor concerned so that further tests can be done to ensure the current condition. In the meantime, you can find a comfortable position when lying down, not force movement when it hurts, and take pain medication that has been prescribed by your doctor.
That's all from me, hope it can help
