R nAlready to the doctor, internal medicine and nerve spinalysis, the diagnosis is myalgia and dyspepsia . But, I took the medicine that didn’t relieve my backache at all .. r nWhat do you think about my illness?
Hello Cahayu, Thank you for the question.
Back pain can be caused by several health conditions that cannot be known with certainty without a doctor's examination. Back pain can be caused by:
muscle tension / muscle pain (myalgia) for example due to incorrect posture when sitting, standing, or bending over or due to strenuous exercise
narrowing of the spinal cord canal
hernia nucleus pulposus
A burning stomach accompanied by nausea can be caused by stomach ulcers; acid reflux disease; or stomach ulcers (dyspepsia) due to other reasons, such as infection with Helicobacter pylori, side effects of drugs, side effects of consuming caffeinated and alcoholic drinks, side effects of consuming spicy foods. Coughing can also occur if you have acid reflux disease. However, cough complaints can also be caused by other things such as sore throat, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and others.
If these two complaints have not improved, please go back to see a doctor. The doctor will return to check on you. For heartburn problems, the doctor will re-examine you and adjust the dosage of the drug until the drug can resolve your complaints. Apart from medication, you are also advised to make lifestyle changes. For back pain problems, the doctor may perform other tests such as urine tests, ultrasound, X-rays, CT scans, or MRI to find the cause. After knowing the cause, the new doctor can determine further treatment.
Please do the following suggestions:
improve your posture
apply warm compresses to the affected area
Take a doctor-prescribed pain reliever or paracetamol
avoid consumption of spicy and oily foods
avoid consumption of caffeinated and alcoholic beverages
avoid eating too much
avoid eating large portions, you should eat small portions but more often
I hope this information is helpful.
