Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am facing low back pain from the last one month. I have attached my magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) report.

Answered by Dr. Aida Abaz Quka

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com. Your magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) report (attachment removed to protect patient identity) indicates a disc herniation in the lower vertebral column. This could be the cause of your back pain. Coming to this point, I recommend taking Ibuprofen 400 mg three times daily and a muscle relaxant (Flexeril or Tiocolchiside) for 1 to 2 weeks. It is also important having some rest and avoid prolonged standing up or sitting position or weight lifting. A lumbar brace can help. If your situation does not improve or even worsens, consulting with a spinal surgeon may be needed. Treatment plan include rest, painkillers, muscle relaxants. The preventive measure include lumbar brace, avoid weight lifting.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
