I’ve been having back pain in my mid back area mostly on my right side for about two months now. It’s hard for me to do household chores and drive the car. What is the reason for my back pain?
To do justice to this question, it MSU be lengthy. I’ll need to ask questions, if you don’t mind. I can still guide you but having your answers I can be more specific.
I also want to guide you on how you go about assessing pain.
1) How old are you?
2) I’m assuming you are a female?
3) Any previous history of back pain?
4) Did you have any back injury prior to the pain starting?
5) Did you do any unusual activity involving heavy lifting ? Long distance
driving? Get a new mattress or chair
New shoes or heavy purse or backpack ?
6) Do you have any chronic illnesses?
Have you started on any new meds?
7) Do you have a fever?
8 ) Do you have any GI symptoms or abdominal pain ?
9) Do you have any urinary symptoms . Like blood in your urine, burning with urination?
10) Are your periods normal?
11) if you were to go over a speed bump, does it cause you to cry out?
12) What makes it worse ? Better ?
13) is it continous or comes and goes?
14) on a pain level where 0 is no pain and 10 is the absolute worse. What number is you average?
12) Are you able to put one finger over the area or does it radiate elsewhere?
Can you describe where it is?
13) is the pain sharp of dull? Is it stabbing or burning ? Does it
I’m sure you are overwhelmed !
I’ll do my best !
You might try heat packs. They sell them at most pharmacy's. If that doesn't help at all and you continue to have intense pain u probably need to go see the doctor to see if you haven't ruptured a disc or have a kidney infection that needs to be treated. I hope this helps to some degree. It's hard to function when you are in pain.
