Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as your problem. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not improve in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I have pain in my lower back 2 inches left to backbone, feels sharp pain like needle stings not severe yet bearable. Cause is prolonged sitting on chair in front of PC at work. If I spend day with walking and less sitting then it is normal. As I sit on chair pain starts and keep on increasing. I got x ray but it was normal. Should I take tablets like neuroprene, calcium with regular exercise to strength en my muscles. Regards gagan.

Hi Your problem is one related to posture issues. Generally prolonged sitting in one position creates tiredness and sometimes spasms of that group of muscles resulting in discomfort and many times severe pain. Following measures should be taken:- 1. Don't sit continuously for more than one hour. Take a short break and walk as it will help the muscles relax. 2. Exercise daily for at least 30 minutes focusing 10 minutes specifically for back muscles. 3. Meditate daily preferably in an open area as it will help you relax in general and the fresh oxygen will help the muscles to get rid of lactic acid produced which causes tiredness. 4. Sit straight and always take back support. Don't lean towards sides as it causes extra strain on a particular group of muscles. Your problem is exactly because of this. Taking supplements might help but not for long as in your age considering your height and weight you seems to be fit. 5. For immediate solution take Rhus. tox. 30 thrice daily for two days. If the pain still persist after medicine then feel free to contact through Lybrate.

Hi pls find out whether the pain appear after you join the gym. If so it may be due to over strain or lack of guidence. Better take some rest for few days. You can apply any medicated oil and give a steam bath. If it s not working then you can take some ayurvedic medicines. Thank you.
