The Cause Of Pain That Feels From The Neck To The Waist
Good morning dock. I have spinal pain from the neck to the waist, but if my neck looks up, it will feel more painful. The illness has been going on for months. What do you have to do, doc?
Thank you for the question.
Pain that feels from the neck to the waist, is most often caused by disorders of the spine, for example due to herniation of the nucleus pulposus, tumors or infections that suppress the nerves, spondylosis, meningitis, scoliosis, lordosis, and so on. As is known, in the spinal column there is a spinal cord, from which extends a lot of nerve fibers. So, disorders of the spine can interfere with the function of these nerves and trigger pain.
Not only that, pain as you experience it can also arise due to other causes, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetic neuropathy, stones or kidney infections, other organ system infections, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, post-injury, neurotropic nutritional deficiencies, psychological disorders, stomach disorders , pleurisy, and so on.
In order to improve, you can take paracetamol while compressing warm and resting parts of your body that are painful. Not only that, you also need to exercise more, improve your posture when you are active, eat lots of foods that contain vitamin B complex, don't smoke, stay away from alcohol and drugs, don't mind too much, and don't also randomly massage or ring out areas of your body that pain.
If the pain still does not improve, or other severe symptoms appear, such as bowel obstruction, high fever, stiff neck, numbness or tingling, weakness or paralysis, and so on, you should consult your doctor or neurologist directly for further treatment.
Conversely, if with the above efforts your pain has improved, it seems better to stay at home you do, so that your risk of contracting COVID-19 can be smaller.
Hope this helps ...
