Even less likely in NZ is discitis from a dirty needle. Poor posture is usually to minor to write about. Check 4 ankylosing spondy ...Read more

Lower back pain over buttocks. Worse when lying down or sitting. What could it be? Is ice or heat better? Don't remember doing anything to cause it

Arthritis/stenosis: This could just be some arthritis of the back. In an acute injury it is technically better to use ice. If no injury, then which ever of ice or heat helps. You could also have some stenosis (just means narrowing) irritating (pinching) a nerve causing the buttock pain. If it doesn't get better on its own after a week or two consider doing some physical therapy to strengthen your core and back. ...Read more

Sorry, off and on eye twitching every day for past month and lower burning back pain when lying down, relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis?

Let's analyze: The eye twitching could be ocular myokymia, due to eyestrain, fatigue, stress, chemical imbalance, and the back pain may be due to degenerative spondylosis, or a disc issue. You list ampyra, (dalfampridine) a drug used to improve walking in ms patients, but do not list other ms disease modifiers. Do you in fact have ms? Maybe, your neurologist can sort this out if indeed you do.. ...Read more

Severe lower back pain and tightening that relieves after walking but resumes after sitting or lying down for a few minutes or more.

Severe lower back pain and tightening that relieves after walking but resumes after sitting or lying down for a few minutes or more.

Muscle Spasm: Pain with sitting typically stresses the disk in the lumbar spine (lower back). This is often relieved with standing or sitting as there is less pressure on the disk in these positions. Younger patients will often have only back symptoms without sciatica if they have a disc herniation. If your pain is truly severe and not getting better, that deserves an evaluation by a spine or pain specialist. ...Read more
