Physical therapy: Physical therapy may be helpful. The best thing for spinal stenosis is exercise to strengthen the paraspinal muscles that support the spin. It may hurt to do the exercises at first, but it will be worth it in the long run. Also if you are overweight- try to get your weight down. ...Read more

I have a chronic lower back pain. Before my back gets seized and I'm in excruciating pain, I start walking tilted to my left side?

Need Evaluation: Obviously, you should not let this continue. The answer maybe very simple and treatment equally easy. If you have had medicine, and physical therapy, someone must have prescribed it. Do you have a name for what you have. A diagnosis is key, thus treatment can be targeted. Hopefully by now someone has looked at your lower back via an mri, and your kidney function, at least for starters. Cheers! ...Read more

Use anti inflammatory drugs like Advil or Aleve (naproxen). Also rest is very important, Avoid bending and lifting. Also avoid exercises that cause pain in that area.

Just came off the pill - stopped taking a month ago. Having a sporadic period and dull ache in my lower left side that I can feel when walking. Help?

See your physician: After coming off the BCP your periods will often be irregular for a period of time. The dull ache in your side is likely unrelated to coming off the pill or your irregular period. If the dull ache persists or if your abdomen is tender in that area it's best to see your physician for the proper diagnosis and treatment. For information on abdominal pain see > http://bit.

Abdominal pain: Abdominal pain is a very broad complaint and can be difficult to get to the bottom of the cause. This could be from a variety of conditions, but you really need a physical exam to figure out what is going on. Diagnosis could range anywhere from muscle strain to hernia or inflammatory bowel diseases. Blood work and imaging can help to figure out the cause to your pain as well as physical exam. ...Read more

Some: Some of these symptoms are more likely a sign that blood flow to part of your brain may be partly blocked by a narrowing in your left carotid (neck) artery.
If this is what is happening it could lead to a stroke.
I would see a medical doctor and have the doctor consider scanning your carotid arteries and maybe brain.

If these tests are negative then you may have spine (back) problems with discs which may or may not be treatable but your doctor or a neurologist would be the right people for you to see (soon!), before the problem becomes worse or even permanent. ...Read more
