6mos post lami. Localized left lower back pain, feels muscular. Hurts when twist and extend. Dr. Wants facet rhizo. Muscles? Pain when i stretch. Mri?

Possibilities: In addition to pain management, especially if it's not helping, i would talk to your surgeon about getting new imaging. I would consider getting dynamic xrays to rule out any new instability. I don't know if MRI would add much if you aren't having leg symptoms. ...Read more

I have been having lower back pain for a few months that I believe is muscular. I am fairly active and I have had some dull testicular pain.?

Worrisome!: It is not fair to you for you to assume you only have a back ache. If you have associated symptoms and especially if they don't normally go together, you should have a thorough history and exam by your pcp or qualified practicioner and get an answer or start of one. There are many things to consider with your history. Some may be benign but there are some worrisome ones as well. Get it checked. ...Read more

I had a severe attack of lower back pain.Xray indicated no disc displacement and no bone lesion.But i m on bed and it seems to be muscular pain?

Muscularskeletal : X-ray is not an extremely useful tool here. Although there are other possibilities the most likely are an inflammation of what is called a facet joint, disc bulge or herniation, lumbar sprain or trigger points. I would begin treatment with drugs like advil (ibuprofen) which are ant inflammatory and analgesic, a muscle relaxant, physical therapy and possibly chiropractic care. An MRI to follow if needed. ...Read more

Lower back pain. I didn't have before laminectomy 9 mos ago. Surgeon says MRI looks fine (no fractures, instability). Thinks its muscular. Possible?

Likely: After surgery, the muscles of the back weaken (much more if the surgery was extensive and muscles were cut to get to the spine). Starting pt as soon as the surgeon says it is safe will most likely improve the pain. Therapy should concentrate on back and core strengthening. ...Read more

Lower back pain. Can't tell if it's muscular or kidneys. 21, active. Slight testicle ache. Std test clean. Ideas? Can I drink a glass or two of wine?

Wine should be okay: The bigger issue is the diagnosis.Most back pain in young people is muscular.However it is good you are aware other organ systems can produce back pain.

I've been having low back pain around the kidney area, but experiencing no other symptoms. Is it most likely just muscular?

I've been having low back pain around the kidney area, but experiencing no other symptoms. Is it most likely just muscular?

Spine Pain Options: This chronic pain in the distribution as you suggested is the result of an irritated nerve or facet joints or other injury typically in the spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease, etc requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist and may be candidate for facet injections/radiofrequency ablation and epidural steroid injection. ...Read more
