Lower back pain below rib when lying down?
I have a Lump on my right side more towards my back under my rib cage. It causes pain that goes all the way down to my lower back also bothering my hip. My right leg also goes numb at times.?
Go and see an osteopath or chiropractor, sounds like you've got some muscle starting too 'seize' up and this could putting pressure on some of your nerves. Seek professional a…dvice.
Typically a heating pad will help to ease lower back pain. The heat will help to get blood flowing in the area, dull the pain from nerve endings, and ease the tension on stret…ched muscles.
If you have pain in your entire back and it hurts to breathe and the pain is constant. It also goes lower down my back. What could it be?
Pain that severe is typical of a disk herniation in the upper lumbar or thoracic region. Sharp pain indicates a nerve problem, and when the back is involved it typically means… a disk is pressing on a nerve. Depending on where the pain path runs, you can determine which disk is likely involved. Nerves in the lumbar area will typically radiate pain past the waist and into the legs, where thoracic problems will affect the lungs and other organs of the upper torso region. I've included a link to a spinal nerve chart below that will show and tell you what areas of the body are affected. If the pain is that severe, don't wait to get it diagnosed, and go to a Neurosurgeon to have it done. Though they'll typically order an MRI or CT to verify it, usually with an office exam they can determine what your problem is by the pain and symptoms you're dealing with. It's also important that you limit your physical activity to avoid aggravating the problem further. Trust me when I tell you that you don't want the long term problems I and many others have had with spinal issues if that is indeed your problem. Do what it takes to get it dealt with immediately, and stay off your feet as much as possible. No lifting either, and by "off your feet" I mean lying down. Standing or sitting puts more pressure on the spine and makes it worse. Of course if it is a spinal problem, you've probably already noticed you feel less pain while lying down. Make sure you lay on your side, not on the back or stomach either - that also increases pressure on the spine. On your side in a fetal position with a large cushion between your knees is the most comfortable for most people, with a pillow behind you to keep from rolling, and another in front to keep from rolling on your stomach.
There can be a number of reasons for pain in lower left side below ribs. The most common reasons are: Heartburn or acid reflux, spleen irritation, gas in the colon, costoc…hondritis, broken rib, stomach ulcers.
This description is quite vague and could variety on a lot of factors such as your weight, activities, does it hurt after you have eaten, aanndd if there was any recent …trauma to the area. If it hurts just as much while breathing and also pressure, then i would assume a fracture. But could also possible be a muscle attachment problem

This sounds like sciatica. It can be really scary and bothersome, but it often goes away after a week or so. It can come and go. It is usually due to a pinched nerve in the lo…wer back, a nerve that leads all the way down to the foot. Taking care of tight muscles with nice warm baths, a good mattress and pillow, and massage might help straighten things out. If it is chronic (keeps happening), talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner.
There are many causes of pain on the left side of ribs: oesaphagitis and reflux, pancreatitis and stomach ulcers, angina and heart disease, chest infections, shingles, fibrosi…tis, referred pain from spine and occasionally from gall bladder disease and irritable bowel. A detailed investigation is needed to establish the cause of pain.
It could be gall stones.
Back pain is one of the most common ailments in the UK. It is thought more than 17 million Britons suffer from the problem, and the Health and Safety Executive estimates …that it is responsible for nearly 5 million lost working days a year. Probably the most common cause is when the back muscles begin to spasm. This can often occur after strenuous activity, or can be a reaction to repetitive strain. The muscle is damaged, or irritated, and goes into spasm to protect the area from further injury. This can be extremely painful, and can lead to muscle tears if undue stress is exerted. Other causes of back pain include arthritis, fractures and infections. In many cases experts believe back pain is a manifestation of emotional upset, rather than a physical problem. More serious causes can include a prolapsed disc, or degenerative diseases of the spine - but these are relatively rare. read more at :- http://www.edulords.com/index.php?option=com_alphacontent§ion=22&Itemid=4&limitstart=20 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It could be a pinched nerve. My mom had that same problem,Becuase of a penched nerve.
Maybe A budy of mine had similar problems and he had a pinched nerve in his lower spine. It was caused by an enlarged disk. * …A good source of information can be found at: Sciatica Foundation, http://www.sciatica.org
They hurt because you are applying force to them.
