Back pain issue
Hello, I am suffering from heavy back pain issue from last couple of months. I have consulted with my family doctor who is a general physician and he suggested few medicine along with the LUMBASACRAL SPINE MRI. I have done the MRI in March this year but due to this lockdown and virus spreading issue I am unable to go to visit a orthopedic regarding this issue. I have my MRI report with me. Though I don't know the medical terms but based on the basic knowledge I can say the report is not good. I am unable to stand long, unable to sleep at night properly. Can anyone help me with the possible reasons for this and how to overcome.

Hello dear I see you have a chronic low back pain which can be very disabling. You have also got your mri already , however i am more interested in your symptoms before looking at the mri: 1. How did the pain start? Did you lift any heavy weights at onset or any abrupt forward bending at the onset of pain.? 2. Does the pain go down your leg and heel? 3. Do you feel any tingling or numbness over your legs or feet? 4. Does the pain get worse with forward bending and lifting weight? 5. Does the pain awaken you from sleep after you have slept already? 6. Is the pain worse with sitting for long? 7. Do you have any medical problems and are you taking any treatment for any disease other than back pain? 8. Do you have additional symptoms like hair fall, fatigue, acidity, cramps, weak memory and dizziness on abrupt standing? 9. Lastly i need to see any blood test reports you have done recently and the MRI films. For the time being i can only say that backpain a person of your age is mostly due to muscle weakness and nutritional deficiencies, however any disc pathology needs to be ruled out. Regards Dr Vipin Gupta

It could be prolapse intervertebral disc compressing the nerves or Ankylosing spondylitis. Back pain patients first time should be examined by orthopaedic surgeon. I just saw a 28 years with severe back pain. We are seeing patients in our clinic.
