Back pain and its causes


Q: Hi doctor, from last 2 days i m having back pain which is at bottom of my back-bone. and the pain is increasing day by day. what can be the reason for pain and what should be done to get relief from it?


A:   This could be due to a mechanical ie a muscular origin back pain or due to some disc prolapse which will lead to similar symptoms along. However it is diffucult to say for sure without physical examination. I advice you to see a physician in person for a further inepth analysis. I hope this helps/.
