I am having pain in my lower back and left abdomen. I was sleeping with one leg bent up, and suddenly in the morning, I experienced sharp pain. I did exercise the day before; I do not have problems with my urination and bowel movements. However, I am unable to have food because of the pain. I have a history of low back pain and have taken painkillers in the past. Kindly help me with how to deal with it.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. Muscle spasm can be the reason for your pain. As you have a history of lower back pain, I suggest you go for an X-ray of the lumbar spine (LS). I also suggest you apply ointment Diclofenac to the affected area, cover it with a cloth for ten minutes, then clean it with warm water twice a day. If there is no improvement in pain within a day, then visit a nearby physiotherapy clinic and take IFT (interferential therapy) for a week. After a week of physiotherapy sessions, I suggest lumbar strengthening exercises.
I hope this helps.
The probable cause is spasm.Investigations to be done:
I suggest X-ray Lumbar Spine (LS) anteroposterior and lateral view.Treatment plan:
I suggest interferential therapy (IFT) physiotherapy.Preventive measures:
You must avoid sitting or lying on the floor, bending, and lifting weights for a few days.
