I am experiencing  abdominal pain (generalized) (severity: severe) (quality: sensation of tearing pain) , constipation and back pain (severity: severe) (side: upper) . The following also describe me: Abdominal discomfort and Appetite changes. What should

Get checked out: Severe abdominal pain with back pain can be very serious. Go to a doctor today. If you've been checked out by a GP or GI doc and they 'don't find anything', it could be more of a "functional GI syndrome". That can often be helped by a functional medicine approach and lifestyle changes, but it's a broader conversation. We could speak about it. Track me down. ...Read more

Wats da best treatment 4 lower back muscle (near my hip) strained by weight lifting. Feel severe pain. I'm 58 male. Tried painkillers and ice! thanks?

Several options!: First, you are getting this answer from a physician who was a competitive weightifter. And you are assuming your pain was caused by weightlifting. If so, you need to take Naproxen or alternative at full strength, and consider getting voltaren (diclofenac) patches to place directly on the affected area. You should see a doctor if this doesn't work. Weightlifting is a great sporting activity! ...Read more

Chronic sij pain. Becomes displaced often. 2 steroid inj with min brief relief (2wks) now pain seems even worse 8/10 on pain scale constantly.Surgery?

Probably not surgery: Sacroiliac joint pain occurs because the muscles where the spine and pelvis meet are involved in bending, twisting, and lifting. Pain from a sprain or strain may be helped with nonsteroidals or local injections. You may need physical therapy to strengthen and stretch your muscles so there's not so much strain on that joint. Surgery probably won't help your pain and may decrease function. ...Read more
