Back Pain Symptoms
Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Back Pain SymptomsIt is not uncommon to hear someone complain about back pain. We live in a society in which many people spend 8 hours of their days sitting in front of computers. This, lifting heavy objects on a daily basis, or any number of other activities can be the cause of back pain, neck pain, and even pain in other parts of the body. Below are some common symptoms of those experiencing a wearing down or injury of the neck or back.

Back Pain

While this may be the most common pain-related complaint among Americans, it is useful to know when a visit to the doctor is warranted. Acute pain is generally what most experience, as it describes a sharp pain that gets better with rest and relaxation. Chronic pain, however, can be more troubling, as it is not treatable with rest and relaxation. Acute pain can appear for any number of reasons, including a sports-related accident, poor posture, carrying a heavy backpack, or lack of muscle tone. There could, however, be more serious causes of back pain, such as an inflammation of the spine, or physical trauma. It is recommended that you contact your doctor if you are experiencing acute back pain after a traumatic physical incident, if you experience any numbness, develop a fever, or lose control of your bladder.

Neck Pain

Pain in the cervical part of the spine, or the neck, much like other back pain, can be either acute or chronic. If the discs in your neck deteriorate too much over time, you can develop slipped discs, spinal stenosis, or bone spurs. It is wise to go see your doctor if you are experiencing any sort of neck pain that does not get better within 72 hours.

Arm Pain

Many patients experiencing pain in their arms do not realize that the source of the pain could be the spine. The cervical spine could be projecting pain, numbness, or tingling in the arms to signify that their is a problem. If you have any one of these symptoms, and they do not dissipate within 72 hours, you should go see your doctor.

Leg Pain

Just like arm pain, leg pain could be a result of a problem in the lumbar spine or lower back. This is more common, as the lower back must become accustomed to carrying a large amount of weight. If you have pain, numbness, or tingling in your legs, you should consult your doctor.
