Nonspecific Lower Back Pain in Adults

Side view of lower spineAbout 8 in 10 people have one or more bouts of low back pain. In most cases, it is not due to a serious disease or serious back problem, and the exact cause of the pain is not clear. This is called nonspecific lower back pain. The usual advice is to keep active, and do normal activities as much as possible. Painkillers can help until the pain eases. In most cases, the pain disappears within six weeks but may come back (recur) from time to time. Chronic (persistent) pain develops in some cases and further treatment may then be needed.

Understanding the lower back

The lower back is also called the lumbosacral area of the back. It is the part of the back between the bottom of the ribs and the top of the legs.

Most of the lower back is made up from muscles that attach to, and surround, the spine. The spine is made up of many bones called vertebrae. The vertebrae are roughly circular and between each vertebra is a disc. The discs between the vertebrae are a combination of a strong fibrous outer layer and a softer, gel-like centre. The discs act as shock absorbers and allow the spine to be flexible.

Strong ligaments also attach to nearby (adjacent) vertebrae to give extra support and strength to the spine. The various muscles that are attached to the spine enable the spine to bend and move in various ways.

The spinal cord, which contains the nerve pathways to and from the brain, is protected by the spine. Nerves from the spinal cord come out from between the vertebrae to take and receive messages to various parts of the body.

Nonspecific low back pain

This is the most common type of back pain. About 19 in 20 cases of sudden-onset (acute) low back pain are classed as nonspecific. This is the type of back pain that most people will have at some point in their life. It is called nonspecific because it is usually not clear what is actually causing the pain. In other words, there is no specific problem or disease that can be identified as the cause of the pain. The severity of the pain can vary from mild to severe. This type of back pain is discussed further below.

Nerve root pain - often called sciatica

This occurs in less than 1 in 20 cases of acute low back pain. Nerve root pain means that a nerve coming out from the spinal cord (the root of the nerve) is irritated or pressed on. (Many people call this a trapped nerve.) You feel pain along the course of the nerve. Therefore, you typically feel pain down a leg, sometimes as far as to the calf or foot. The pain in the leg or foot is often worse than the pain in the back. The irritation or pressure on the nerve may also cause pins and needles, numbness or weakness in part of a buttock, leg or foot.

So far only only pain killers since I don't

Want to be on immuno suppressors for life.
I went on a seven day water only fast and it was amazing that the pain and swelling went away for the first time in a month but it came back in about another week.
Previous studies from Oxford University showed that people who went on a fast and then went on a vegan diet get long term relief from the symptoms. I had a feeling that it might not work longterm for me since I was already a vegan.
The person I shared a lab with in Boston is an MD and she thinks I may have been misdiagnosed and instead have Lyme disease arthritis (we have a summer home in new Jersey that is overrun with deer), so I am currently on antibiotics for a month to see if it goes away

Symptoms of lower urinary tract infections usually begin suddenly and may include one or more of the following signs:
* The urge to urinate frequently, which may recur immediately after the bladder is emptied.
* A painful burning sensation when urinating. (If this is the only symptom, then the infection is most likely urethritis, an infection limited to the urethra.)
* Discomfort or pressure in the lower abdomen. The abdomen can feel bloated.
* Pain in the pelvic area or back.
* The urine often has a strong smell, looks cloudy, or contains blood
