Weight in the gut: Pulls muscles in the back and can cause discomfort. Please see your doc to check for medical conditions and choose a food plan and some exercise (even brisk walking) to get back in shape. Peace and good health.

My girlfriend is suddenly having severe mid and lower back pain. More so on the left side. What could it be?

Multiple reasons: Pain could be from an ovarian cyst. Where you recently sexually active?, pain could be from painful intercourse as a result of friction or trauma. Was she lifting anything or doing anything that would create pressure on the back? Pain could be from a strained muscle to a herniated disc. Asked her if she's ever had a ruptured ovarian cyst, especially with her history of iron deficiency anemia.

Mid and lower back pain pops all the time and pight side hip pain hurts if I sit too long or walk a lot, what could be wrong? Going on months now.

Back Pain: Very common condition due to improper position and chronic strain. Will not go away immediately and slowly start stretching the back with yoga exercises- gentle stretch, avoid soft chair and bed, keep a good posture at all times, ice and get gentle massage when in pain. Firm beds are helpful to wake up pain free in the morning. Swimming is best exercise for back pain.

I have chronic mid lower back pain, it almost feels like my spine I don't believe its a disc but are there any suggestions on what I should do?

Back pain in young: Young patients rarely need further evaluation for back pain as it is usually self-limiting. For mild symptoms, muscle pains are most common. Consider also disc herniation which may cause pain without sciatica. Stress fracture occurs in 5% of the population without any symptoms. If symptoms persist, then see your doc for a more specific evaluation.

I had a bladder infection a week ago finished all medicine an now I have mid lower back pain?

Now its a kidney inf: Ection. Chronic kidney infections can cause serious kidney damage. Follow up quick with your md to make sure this is not happening. Kidney pain is usually on either side of the spine about a hand width from center and beneath the lower ribs. The problem also is you've had antibiotics that don't seem to have worked. Might be resistant bugs that need to be tested to see which med will kill the bugs.

My doc said I have a strained abd. Muscle but today after a nap I'm getting mid/lower back pain. Is this related? The back pain was so sudden

Possibly: The abdominal strain may be a separate entity from the lower back pain. Alternatively, the abdominal pain can the cause of the lower back pain. There are 10, 000 causes of lower back pain. The first step I would take is get a abdominal and/or a lumbar mri. Then we can possibly find out the cause of abdominal pain and/or liwer back pain.

Would having an epidural during child birth 19 mos ago cause mid to lower back pain while laying down?

Would having an epidural during child birth 19 mos ago cause mid to lower back pain while laying down?

Back pain after epid: It is not likely your pain is from the labor epidural after 19 months. What is more likely is a back injury resulting from the actual vaginal delivery and associated efforts. This can be caused by a strain or herniation. Also, you should not overlook the possibility of an unrelated medical problem. If the pain is not dissipating and does not respond to over the counter medications, see a doctor.

What causes bad back pain and stiffness in the morning? I have even got a new memory foam mattress and there is no change. Mid and lower back pain.

See doctor: Most likely musculoligamentouss and a good back excercise/stretching program will help, but you should see an orthopedist to be examined and get at least x-rays to rule out other causes

I was recently taking muscle relaxers for lower back pain, but now I'm feeling upper-mid pain when I cough. Could it be a nerve problem?

I was recently taking muscle relaxers for lower back pain, but now I'm feeling upper-mid pain when I cough. Could it be a nerve problem?

Could be disc: If the upper-mid pain you have is in the upper mid back, worse when you move cough, bend or rotate the spine in that area, it may be a disc in the thoracic spine part of your back, a strain or sprained muscle. I'm not sure that it would be typical of a nerve problem (meaning a nerve disease), but we do feel pain because of our nerves, indicated a problem in that area.

Mid to lower back pain after getting jumped on. A round of prednisone helped but after it was done pain returned. What could be the cause?

Mid to lower back pain after getting jumped on. A round of prednisone helped but after it was done pain returned. What could be the cause?

Depends on who jump-: -ed. Have 2 take a lot in determining the force, velocity, weigh & from what height. A child or adult. May B just a muscle strain still. Steroid make everything better. If no leg pain or no severe, try NSAIDS if able. If it interferes with quality of life, you should see your PCP & go from there. If you have done that see an orthopedic surgeon or a spine surgeon 4eval. A hands on exam & imaging.

I had a surgical abortion a week ago. Can this cause not just a lower back pain but an upper- mid right back/shoulder pain also?

I had a surgical abortion a week ago. Can this cause not just a lower back pain but an upper- mid right back/shoulder pain also?

Doesn't sound normal: A surgical abortion doesn't normally cause upper back and right shoulder pain. This type of pain after surgery is sometimes from something irritating the the diaphragm under the lungs. When the diaphragm is irritated, it refers its pain to the right shoulder. I would have it checked out because it doesn't sound normal. Best wishes!
