Lately for the past two weeks I've been feeling some discomfort in my back/abdominal area. The pain isn't very painful, just discomforting and sometimes I do feel a sharp pain. These symptoms don't last very long and are on and off. I'm 20, work out about 3-4 times a week (mostly weight lifting). I was using Muscle Milk for about 7 months about 5 times a week. However I stopped because I thought those pains and discomforts I felt were because of that. Also, I drink alcohol about 2 times a week when I go out with friends. I'm not sure what is causing these symptoms. Other than that, I feel ok - my appetite is normal, urine is normal, energy level is normal, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks..

  • Hi, I am a physical therapist. Low back pain and abdominal pain generally do not come together and if they do, they generally do not signify a muscle or joint issue. Low back conditions generally are aggravated by a specific position or posture (standing/sitting/bending) and typically do NOT involve abdominal pain. I would suggest that if you are having abdominal pain you see a good MD (maybe GI specialist?) as I would be more concerned with the stomach symptoms. Hope this helps. ~JTrempe PT, ATChttp://www.joint-pain-solutions.com/Lower-back-pain.html
