Treatment When Suffering From Paralumbal Muscle Spasm?
, I was diagnosed with paralumbal muscle spasm early last year through a CT scan through the examination of a urologist first (because at that time the testicular area was often painful and seemed to be interested). The pain starts when the wrong position when sneezing, left leg raised when sneezing then pain around the lower left abdomen to the waist which then the testicles also feel interested and until now left testicular movements are not normal. Until now pain in the waist, the tailbone area and back often hurt when sitting (although sitting not long). The left testicular area is painless but the position and movement are different from the right (abnormal). Please explain my complaint, especially regarding paralumbal muscle spasm. And which specialist should I check this with? thank you
Hello Aryo, Thank you for the question.
Has your urologist delivered what is the cause of your complaint? Does the urologist give further examination or treatment? The causes of your complaint are very diverse and to ensure the cause is needed more information about the symptoms you are experiencing, a doctor's examination, and other supporting examinations. Lumbago can be caused by muscle tension. Paralumbal muscle spasm is a condition of muscle tension (spasm) of the muscles around the lumbar bone area (lower back). This condition can occur due to incorrect posture when sitting or standing. In addition to muscle tension, complaints that you experience can also be caused by:
tendinitis, or inflammation of the tendons (the connective tissue that connects the muscles to the bones) kidney infection, if you also experience complaints of urinary kidney stones, but from a CT scan not found any hernia nucleus pulposus narrowing of the spinal nerves cauda equina syndrome If from the examination of urologist no find any condition, you can consult an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will ask about your complaint more fully, examine you, and perform other examinations such as x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan or MRI of the spine. From this examination the doctor will find out the cause and can provide appropriate treatment. In the meantime, please try to maintain your posture. Avoid lifting heavy loads while bending over. You can warm compresses on the diseased waist or take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol. Do not delay consulting a doctor especially if you experience tingling, numbness, or weakness in the legs or difficulty controlling urinating and defecating.
Hopefully this information helps you.
