Seeking some advice from people here who also suffer from lower back pain

Posted by

HEllo bros~

I want to look for some advice from people here who also suffer from lower back pain.....

I am having lower back agony for couple of months as of now. At first just agony when I do some unbalanced movements like winding and twisting down. In any case, now it has compound to steady torment/throb regardless of standing or sitting, to the expand that when strolling I can't generally fix the back. Obviously I had been to the specialist's few times, each time he will take a x-beam and reveal to me that there is no issue with the spine and bones. also, there's nothing he can do aside from recommending some physiotheraphy. I went for physio for a while but situation did not get better. i went back and the doctor said the x-ray did not show anything and he really dunno how, so he suggested to do an MRI scan to check if the nerves are ok.

My question is: are MRI scan really useful? I am worried that after i go through this expensive scan the doctor is going to say that the scan shows nothing and direct me to physio again. then i would have wasted money to go back to square one.

 any bros know of any good places that can treat back pain?

Before they do the MRI scan for the nerves they will inject dye into your bloodstream so that during the scan the dye will highlight the nerves. How effective, actually very hard to say. Did have any medical history whereby you hurt your back? If it's a recurring injury pain the scan won't be of much help.

more of recurring injury bro. I dun recall one injury which i sustain which caused my back to be like that.

last time when young it was on and off. nothing much, and i could be very physically active also.

but now the pain is always there and i cant really do much physical things.

anyway, so MRI really also useless? hai and it costs a cool $500 cash, cannot be paid by other means.

what other options do i have man :(

If from the x-ray that you had done do not see any symptoms of slip disc or spinal cord compression dan very likely it's the lower back muscle. You dare to try TCM acupuncture? It may help relieve the pain, cure I dunno. 

I used to have back and lower back pain. So ppl recommend I go see a bone setter, he helped correct my posture which helped my back. And I also went to see a TCM to do acupuncture on my lower back which also helped and no more pain but this takes a number of sessions unlike the bone setter which is effective only with one session. It also depends on my medical history cos I dun have any back injury before so I was lucky to get out of such pains. Before that I also saw a polyclinic doctor who later refer me to a hospital specialist, like you I almost went for the MRI scan to check on my nerves.

I have such recurring back pain too. Doctors told me its muscle spasm, weak back muscles. And yes, when the pain comes, really can't stand straight. Gotta slowly adjust posture straight in order not to have pain. Sleeping is the worse when u wanna change from side to side, damn pain, can break out in sweat. Dr usually prescribe painkiller and muscle relaxant. U can try to buy something that looks like a giant cigar fm TCM shops. Burn the tip and get someone to circle around the affected area.
