Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have pain in the lower back when I lay on a sofa or bed. When I stand, I have the pain in my back. This symptom appears only in the evening. It never happens in the morning or afternoon. I have taken X-ray and analytics. The results are: 1. SV 1 spina bifida. 2. There is a mild tilt of the lumbar spine to the left side. 3. ESR for the first hour is 42. 4. The second hour is 79. 5. ASO: Negative. 6. CRP: positive 15.2. 7. RF: Negative. I took medicine to cure sedimentation rate for only a month before two years.

Welcome to icliniq.com. I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms (local back pain when laying) could be related to the spina bifida. I do not think that there is any bulging disc or nerve compression. Anyway, I would recommend performing a lumbar spine MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) study to examine the spine better.I would recommend performing physiotherapy to improve your situation. Local warm packs can also be helpful too.

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