I have a knot on the lower left side of my back below kidney. It don't hurt all the time, buy when it does its bad and pain shoots down my left leg.

Complex Pain Synd.: The knot and the pain are probably not related. The knot maybe a lump of fatty tissue called a lipoma. Your doc should give you clear answers. The pain is myofascial and the advil (ibuprofen) and opiates are mucking up your gut and your natural healing process. See my notes. Start a wellness program, add in vits and minerals, start acupuncture, get your wellness team together and you have to be the qb! ...Read more

Im having my tonsils out in april and have a tattoo on the lower left side of my back. Does my ENT or anesthesiologist need to know?

Im having my tonsils out in april and have a tattoo on the lower left side of my back. Does my ENT or anesthesiologist need to know?

No one needs to know: When you come in for surgery, you put on a hospital gown. No one needs to see the lower left side of your back. The anesthesiologist may want to listen to your lungs, but you don't have to uncover much. Wear cotton underwear and it should be ok to leave it on. If you are embarrassed about the tattoo, consider having it removed by laser. ...Read more

The lower left side of my back hurts whenever I bend my neck downwards. This has been happening for a few months. What is the cause?

The lower left side of my back hurts whenever I bend my neck downwards. This has been happening for a few months. What is the cause?

Applauding awareness: I commend any younger person picking up on what their body is doing and inquiring about it. That kind of awareness over a lifetime will serve you well. Bending your head stretches your neck muscles which are connected to muscles in the back and low back. Pain described is often from poor posture. Strengthen and balance the core muscles. ...Read more

Infection? STD?: New or abnormal vaginal discharge or bleeding always needs professional evaluation, and you have both. With bleeding and odor, STDs are a good possibility; or perhaps bacterial vaginosis (although that doesn't usually cause bleeeding). See your GP or gynecologist ASAP, or your local NHS GUM clinic for expert, lifestyle-senstive care. Best wishes and good luck. ...Read more
