Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The habit of sitting for too long at the computer, if not balanced with adequate stretching and regular exercise, can trigger muscle pain (myalgia). This pain can be felt in various parts of the body, including the back area, starting from the top (shoulder) to the bottom (waist). This condition can occur especially in the elderly, although it does not rule out it also occurs at a younger age like you.
Not only muscle pain, it can also be achy and hot feeling in the back area as you experience it due to various other factors, for example:
Pinched spinal cord, such as due to herniation of the nucleus pulposus, infection, or a tumor pressing on the nerves around the spine Disorders of spinal curvature, for example kyphosis (bending backwards), scoliosis (bending sideways), or lordosis (bending forward) nerves, for example due to deficiency of vitamin B12 and folic acid, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, post herpetic neuralgia Arthritis, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis Pain transmission from internal organs, for example bile ducts, stomach, lungs, heart, kidneys, uterus, ovaries eggs Psychosomatic disorders, etc. So, how do you deal with the pain you experience? The answer, of course, varies depending on the cause of the pain. However, as an initial treatment, you can try the following efforts:
Avoid staying for too long in a sitting position, stretch and take a walk every half to 1 hour to relax the muscles and other tissues that support it. Always wear comfortable clothes, and sit on comfortable mats while working Compress a sore back with warm water or ice cubes (choose which one makes the pain lessened), don't order too much. Take parcetamol first to reduce pain You can use special pads to support your spine to minimize pain.Routine exercise, for example yoga, swimming, floor exercise Get used to eating regularly, don't be late Choose foods with balanced nutritional content, limit foods high in cholesterol, saturated fats, and trans fats Increase vegetables and fruit, and water Sleep regularly, choose comfortable sleeping mats, don't use too high pillows However, if you don't feel there significant improvement within 1 to 3 days after treatment at Above, you should check yourself directly with a doctor or neurologist in order to get the best management possible. Possibly, not just interviews and regular physical examinations, the doctor will also perform other supporting tests, for example X-rays, CT scans, electromyography, laboratory tests, etc. so that the cause of your pain is quickly identified.
Hope it helps ..
