Thank you for coming back online.
The symptoms you have described of having pain in lower back is most likely due to acute lumbar strain causing stretching injury to the ligaments, tendons, and/or muscles of the low back. It is one of the most common causes of low back pain.
Another possibility is of lumbar radiculopathy.It is nerve irritation that is caused by damage to the discs between the vertebrae or it can occur when the nerves of the lumbar spine are irritated by mechanical cause or disease.
You need Nerve testing (EMG/electromyogram),radiology testing, such as X-ray of lower back.
Following will help you to relieve this lower back pain:
- Take tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter.
- Apply heat in the form of a warm wash cloth applied to the area for 10 minutes or so 2 or 3 times a day increase blood flow to the area allowing to subside the inflammation
- Apply analgesic gel such as diclofenac sodium twice a day
- Have bed rest as much as possible.
All these medications are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.
If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor to have X-ray & other tests and prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments.
Hope this helped.
