Hi doctor,

I am a 31 year old woman. I had a C-section before 8 years. Occasionally since then, I am having light to medium pain in the lower back. In the last few months, the pain has increased and is regular now. Especially, in the lower back on the both sides of center bone. I can localize the points where the pain is in the region. In the last few weeks, the neck region between both the shoulders also paining. I have pain in both knees and backside muscles. Some itching or irritation type of pain happens throughout the day. It becomes worse at night. These problems get worse during periods. Currently, I am using copper-T. This also gives abdomen pain. I had an x-ray of knee and it was normal. I do not have high BP, sugar and cholesterol. My Hb is 13.5. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You seem to be having sciatic root pains from the lumbar region (back), which is giving you back pain and the pain is radiating towards the leg.
  • You also need to do work up for arthritis, which includes ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), CRP (C-reactive protein), RA factor, ANA (antinuclear antibody) and HLA B27 (human leukocyte antigen).
  • There can be nerve damage during a cesarean section, but the possibility is less after seeing your symptoms.
  • Has the pain increased after copper-T insertion?
