My mom has around 15 yers old pain in all body and mostly back and shoulders pain I have tray lost off doctors but not resolve problem please help my mom.
Lower back pain is characterized by a feeling of pain around the lumbar region (curve of the back connecting the upper back and glutes- muscles in the buttock that are responsible for thigh movement) caused by muscle or ligament injury. The spinal area is most likely to be affected by lower pain as it may impair routine activities like walking and standing. Any lower back pain that lasts for more than ninety days can be considered as chronic.
Causes of lower back pain
There are plenty of causes for lower back pain. Anything that exposes the lumbar area of the spine to a level of stress beyond its capacity can cause lower back pain. These causes are-
1. Disorders of the discs - The spinal area in the lower back comprises of small bones called the vertebra, which are connected to each other by pieces of cartilage known as discs. These discs act as shock absorbers, and when exposed to excessive shock can cause the disc to bulge, resulting in herniated discs. Wear and tear of the discs can also occur.
2. Spinal stenosis - Spinal stenosis occurs when the area around the spine becomes narrow. It may affect the nerves surrounding the lower back, resulting in pain.
3. Wear and tear of the joints and ligaments - Normal wear and tear of the joints and ligaments cause difficulties in holding the spine in its proper position and this progresses with age. This may cause a vertebra to slide over another and affect the nerve endings, giving rise to pain.
Symptoms of lower back pain
The symptoms of lower back pain are usually a dull or excruciating pain in the lower back. It can also affect other parts of the body such as the hips and the legs. In case of severe pain, simple activities like walking, bending and sitting will be impaired.
The treatment options are based on source of pain - ranges from physiotherapy to medication to nerve root injections or keyhole endoscopic discectomy under local anesthesia, as a day care procedure. Open surgery is the last resort.

I work in software company as Admin and IT head. My work involves sitting in front of computer for at least 4-5 hrs everyday. I walk 30 minutes everyday. I drink at least 3 litres water everyday. From last 2 years I started feel fatigue and dizzy everyday. I lost nearly 10 kgs during suffering from severe acid reflux. I did endoscopy and colonoscopy after a Gastroenterologist advice. I took Ganaton tablets for 3 months. Now I don't have acid reflux but dizziness is there. Sometimes I feel burning sensation inside my palms and inside foot. Some times I feel like prickling in left leg calve area. My health checkup shows. If I touch very cold water, nerves in my palm bulge twice size and protruding. I have severe constipation and more gas formation. Fasting sugar: 90 Post sugar: 102 BP: 120/70 Total Cholesterol: 170 Vitamin B12: 26 I suspect it is because of Vitamin B12 deficiency. Can you please suggest me any B12 supplement and other food habits to follow to rectify the problem.
Neck pains can be due to muscle spasms, bone related like facet joint pains, disc related pains or nerve pain called neuralgia
A pain management specialist examines the patient thoroughly and puts on a combination of medicines like nsaid, neuropathic drugs and some exercises.
If severe pain is felt, injections are given at appropriate places.
Occipital nerve block for neuralgia
Facet block for facet pain
Epidural for disc prolapse
Trigger point injection for muscle pains
Patients usually get significant pain relief and are back to work.
Dear sir I have attack for back pain for last five years. I loss my good sleep Pain is over in my body. So please help me.
Early morning yoga, jogging/walking will reduce fibromyalgia symptoms irrespective of age. For severe pain, pain management specialist will give medicine or nerve blocks to relieve them.
Lumbar disc prolapse causes severe back pain and radiates down to one or both legs below the knee. MRI shows exact problem. After basic pain killers - rest for a week, do some physiotherapy if pain persists, a pain management specialist is needed. He will see the possibility of a root block at the nerve affected by disc prolapse. If severe degree of prolapse, endoscopic discectomy under local anesthesia is best as a day care and minimally invasive procedure.The patient usually is discharged in 12-24 hrs.
