Hi doctor,

I have lower back pain. I believe it occurred when I was lifting stuff in the house. I am 30 years old, 170 cm tall and weighs about 90 kg. Please advice.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have caused sprain of muscles or a ligament of lower back due to trauma which is causing pain. You need to start NSAIDs and muscle relaxants for a few days and if possible an X-ray LS spine (lumbosacral) to look for bone architecture. Avoid forward bending and weightlifting.

Thank you doctor,

Can you provide me a sick note for today, only for work purposes?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

There are no options available for issuing prescription or sick note. However, you need to rest for 48 hours. Avoid work, preferably take 48 hours leave from office work that will help for early recovery.
