My Back Pain Personal Experience

My First Back Pain

My first back pain was at the age of 28, and I still can clearly remember the feeling. I was ready to get up that morning, but I couldn’t do it. Because it was very painful when I did a little movement. I tried to turn over, but it was so painful.

Later with a break, I hold my back pain, and try to pick up my iPhone, then called my friend for help to get me to the hospital.

I hope that people with the same pain can know earlier when to see a doctor about back pain?

After the doctor did a series of checks on me. He told me that because of sitting in the office for a long time every day with incorrect sitting that I got the cervical spondylosis.

Then the doctor gave me two options:

  • Spinal Traction Surgery

Spinal traction is an important procedure for anyone and needs to be handled with care. So I chose more conservative treatment. So I went back home with my friends.

In the following week, I insisted on simple exercise every day, increasing walking distance and time. I also found a professional physiotherapy institution to do moxibustion and massage treatment on my back. The miracle is that after a week, the pain in my back disappeared.

I believe that many people will have similar experiences with me, so I have done some detailed research and hope that these blogs can help everyone. Let everyone try to understand the causes and get out of it.

In fact, the body’s ability to recover is very strong. I feel that only when forced to do so, choose external intervention to achieve the purpose of treatment.

Many people especially those who work in front of the computer are more prone to back pain. It may be because of sitting for a long time and incorrect sitting posture.

After my first back pain, I paid great attention to my back health.

Other Causes Of Back Pain
  • Cervical Spondylosis

For most people, cervical spondylosis causes no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they typically include pain and stiffness in the neck.

Sometimes, cervical spondylosis results in a narrowing of the space needed by the spinal cord and the nerve roots that pass through the spine to the rest of your body. If the spinal cord or nerve roots become pinched, you might experience:

    • Tingling, numbness, and weakness in your arms, hands, legs or feet
    • Lack of coordination and difficulty walking
    • Loss of bladder or bowel control

  • Neck-Sprain Or Stiff-Neck

A stiff neck can vary in intensity, ranging anywhere from an annoying discomfort to extremely painful, sharp, and limiting. Typically, attempting to turn a stiff neck to a particular side or direction will eventually result in so much pain that the motion must be stopped.

The amount of reduction in neck motion can affect the individual’s activity levels. For example, if the head cannot be significantly turned in one direction without excruciating pain, driving will likely need to be avoided until symptoms improve.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

RA is a long-term or chronic disease marked by symptoms of inflammation and pain in the joints. These symptoms and signs occur during periods known as flares. Other times are known as periods of remission — this is when symptoms dissipate completely.

RA symptoms, which can occur throughout the body, include:

    • joint pain
    • joint swelling
    • joint stiffness
    • loss of joint function

Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. It’s important not to ignore your symptoms, even if they come and go.

  • Frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder typically develops slowly, and in three stages. Each stage can last a number of months.

    • Freezing stage. Any movement of your shoulder causes pain, and your shoulder’s range of motion starts to become limited.
    • Frozen stage. Pain may begin to diminish during this stage. However, your shoulder becomes stiffer, and using it becomes more difficult.
    • Thawing stage. The range of motion in your shoulder begins to improve.

For some people, the pain worsens at night, sometimes disrupting sleep.

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

Patients with ankylosing spondylitis may have chronic generalized or persistent low back pain. The spinous process has a tender feeling. After the morning, the back and back are stiff. When the back is raised, the back and back pain is aggravated. After the activity, the activity is improved.

Patients showed limited activity in the lower back. Physical examination revealed lumbar spine tenderness, Paravertebral muscle spasm, muscle atrophy in the later stage, and even kyphosis.
