I have a lower back injury. (bulging disc and degenerative back disease) I used to run 3 to 4 miles a day before this injury. Can I run with this?

My 6 year old son is complaining about pain when he pees. He also has pain in his lower back. He ran two fevers. I have given him fever reducer for children. Given him colder baths and lots of water to drink.

My 6 year old son is complaining about pain when he pees. He also has pain in his lower back. He ran two fevers. I have given him fever reducer for children. Given him colder baths and lots of water to drink.

The: The symptoms you describe could be a urinary tract infection, which is in general unusual for boys to develop, and this should be evaluated by his pediatrician. The more severe level of infection can involve the kidneys, and a kidney infection in a child could cause those issues you report, the fevers and back (or kidney/flank) pain. While it might be better with the cold baths and water, if he has an infection it should be treated with antibiotics.

There might be anatomic variations that lead some children tio be at risk for developing a urinary or kidney infection, and ultimately that possibility might need to be assessed by a pediatric urologist. But initially, you should have your son examine for a possible infection, and his pediatrician can determine following that if any treatment or further examination is warranted.

Importantly, kidney infections should be addressed with some urgency because repeated infections are recognized to lead to permanent injury and scarring of the kidneys, and they can lose function and suffer inrreversible damage otherwise. ...Read more
