I am facing severe pain attacks in Lumber Spine. These are specially when i try to rest or sleep.
I am being walking this last couple of weeks more than usual. Further, I also think that I sweat way more that normal.
The incident that worried me much was when I suddenly woke late at night and my left hand didn't responded to me. I lost control over it and it was dead. Intensive rubbing by me help gaining control over the hand.
I am taking multivitamins and pain killers as referred by my doctor.

Can anyone give me advice regarding the diseases I should testify myself for.

  • Hi, I am a physical therapist. Night time pain is not something to ignore. Most low back pain is associated with specific postures or positions (pain with sitting/bending/lifting vs. standing/walking). You can check out this site and see if any of the patterns of pain match your symptoms: http://www.joint-pain-solutions.com/Lower-back-pain.html . In the mean time you can try using ice (not heat!) by applying it to your lower back, 10-15 minutes at a time a few times a day. Also, avoid any aggravating postures or positions. If symtpoms do not have a pattern seek out an orthopedic doctor who can evaluate your symptoms. ~JTrempe PT, ATChttp://www.joint-pain-solutions.com
