Woke up this morning with lower back pain. This happened before, about 4 months ago. What can the problem be? I have gained a lot of weight. ..

Many things...: Excess weight frequently contributes to musculoskeletal pain - sore backs, sore knees, etc. You may have strained it lifting something, using poor technique. There are other medical conditions that might explain back pain: menstrual cramps, urinary tract infections, endometriosis, etc. Alternating heat and ice can be a good first-line treatment. It's great you recognize now the impact of weight! ...Read more

I am 39 years old. This is the last day of my period which normally last 3 days. I woke up this morning with lower back pain and brownish bloody mucus like discharge. Could this be associated to my period or am I experiencing the beginning stages of Meno

Early for menopause?: I'm not sure I'd jump to that conclusion based on what you've said. No, let me rephrase- I'm SURE I wouldn't jump to that conclusion based on what you've said. Is this the 1st time you've ever had such a discharge? I suggest a visit to your primary doctor. They may wish to order a urine test and if necessary a visit to the OB/GYN. Good estimate for menopause when mother or sister began. ...Read more

I should have started my period yesterday and did not. I woke up this morning with blood in my panties and have continued throughout the day, though it has been light. I am also having constant lower back pain. Is this my period or is it implantation blee

I should have started my period yesterday and did not. I woke up this morning with blood in my panties and have continued throughout the day, though it has been light. I am also having constant lower back pain. Is this my period or is it implantation blee

Sounds like period: It sounds like you just started your period one day later than usual. Implantation bleeding is not really as common as the internet would have you believe. When it does happen it's usually 6-12 days after ovulation. A pregnancy test 7-10 days after unprotected intercourse is much more helpful. Implantation bleeding occurs exclusively in pregnant women. ...Read more

I have lower back pain in the right part when I woke up in the morning. The pain began to reduce when I left my bed. What are the possible reasons?

See a SPECIALIST: I hate to disagree with other physicians, especially as neither of us have exmined you, but my experience is that a primary care physician is first going to think of pills to fix a prolem like yours. I suspect 9and remember I have not seen you or your records) that you have a facet injury, and that can simply be dealt with by a good pain managment doc without the use of pills. ...Read more

NSAIDS/ice/heat: Anti-inflammatory medications (if no contra-indication for them), cold packs and hot compress 20 minutes on, and about an hour off prior to re-applying. Avoid any heavy lifting, and avoid repetitive bending/squatting/twisting by waist. If symptoms persist, seek medical care. ...Read more

Hi, I just got off my period Wednesday but this morning when I woke up I was spotting lightly and ever since I'm having bad cramps and lower back pain?

Spotting: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems Obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more
