I'm 32weeks pregnant & having extreme lower back pain and can't turn properly or get up from bed.what is the cause & what can relieve the sharp pain?

This can occur with : pregnancy just due primarily to the altered proportions and loads caused by the pregnancy especially in later stages.

I take pradaxa.  Will a steroid shot to relieve back pain interact? The pradaxa is for an irregular heart beat.  The lower back pain was caused when i lifted something too heavy.

Caution: Any blood thinner and what i assume is an epidural steroid injection you are referring to is a serious matter. Pradaxa is a relatively new drug and not everybody knows about it like Coumadin or heparin. The timing of stopping and restarting this medication with respect to a spinal injection is very important. Bleeding into the spinal space could cause permanent injury if done wrong. ...Read more

Lower back pain caused by walking or standing relieved by bending forward, lying down or sitting. Male in 20s.

SomeSlackInTheBack: You're a little young, but that 'better by bending forward or sitting' may indicate a problem in the spinal area that needs attention. Not like immediately but soon. so make an appointment to be examined. Most likely it will be something minor; age is in your favor. Some stretching, home exercises and conditioning will help.

Significant middle back pain. No relief from OTC meds. Mri showed disk bulges t8 thru t11. Is this the cause and what's the treatment going forward?

Maybe: Disc bulging is not concerning but degenerated discs are. Best way to reduce back pain is to be as light as you can (optimal weight) be as fit as you can (high level of fitness with good core muscle strength) and don't smoke. The intermittent use of anti-inflammatory medications will help as well. An epidural injection is also very effective. ...Read more

Will a breast reduction releave some of the back pain caused by fibromyalgia?

Will a breast reduction releave some of the back pain caused by fibromyalgia?

Not necessarily: Breast reduction can help to relieve the strain on the upper back, neck and shoulders by reducing the weight pulling in these areas from heavy, dense breasts. The pain from fibromyalgia may not respond entirely from this effort as the pattern of pain is often more diffuse and not always due to a defined cause. ...Read more
