Common Causes And Treatments Of Back And Abdominal Pain
In most cases, back pain is caused by an inflammation of the muscles or spinal changes and occurs due to poor posture throughout the day, such as sitting on a computer with a bent back, spending many hours standing, or sleeping on a very heavy mattress mole. But when back pain radiates to the belly, the possible causes may be:

1. Kidney stone
What it feels: In the renal crisis it is common for the person to feel intense back pain at the end of the spine more to the right or left side, but in some cases may also radiate to the abdominal region. Inflammation of the kidneys, bladder or ureters, which cause urinary infection can also cause pain in the foot of the belly.

What to do: You should go to the emergency room because the renal colic is very strong and you may need to take medicine or even have surgery to remove the stone.

2. Column problems
What it feels: In the case of arthrosis, back pain is usually near the neck or at the back, being more centralized, although it can also affect the belly.

What to do: Go to the orthopedist to do a X-ray of the spine to identify the possible change and begin treatment that can be done with painkillers, anti-inflammatories or physical therapy to improve posture, fight the symptoms and avoid aggravation with the onset of herniated disc or parrot beak.

3. Gases
What it feels: In some cases the accumulation of intestinal gas can also cause back and abdomen pain, leaving the belly swollen. The pain can be pinched or pinched and tends to be localized to a part of the back or belly.

What to do: Taking fennel tea and then walking for about 40 minutes may be helpful to eliminate the gas naturally, but if the pain does not stop you can try taking plum water because it helps to eliminate feces which may be favoring the production of gases.

Making light meals by eating fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables and drinking small amounts of water throughout the day, and drinking chamomile or lemon balm can help relieve the pain.

4. Column fracture
Fracture of the spine is most common during a traffic accident; in older people with osteoporosis and when there are more serious diseases such as cancer in the bones.

What it feels like: The pain is severe, coarser, on the back and may or may not radiate to the abdominal region. In case of cancer, the pain does not improve with rest and the person can even wake up due to back pain.

What to do: You should go to the doctor to perform tests such as the X-ray that can evidence the fractures, and wear vests to recover faster.

5. Inflammation of the gallbladder
The stone in the gallbladder can lead to an inflammation that manifests whenever the person eats fatty foods, but it is not always severe.

What it feels like: When the bladder is inflamed the person feels a pain in the belly, and usually there is poor digestion, feeling of weight in the belly, swollen belly and belching. Abdominal pain can radiate to the back.

What to do: You should go to the gastroenterologist and have an ultrasound to confirm the presence of the stone and the need for surgery to remove the gallbladder.

6. Bowel diseases
Intestinal diseases, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, usually cause pain in the abdomen, but these can also radiate to the back, being more diffuse.

What it feels like: Symptoms such as abdominal pain with a burning sensation, on stitches or cramps may appear. There may also be discomfort in the foot of the belly, soft or very hard stools and swollen belly.

What to do: You should observe your bowel habits in order to identify whether it can be constipation, gas or diarrhea. A consultation with a gastroenterologist can be helpful in identifying other symptoms, getting tests to get to the diagnosis, and starting treatment. In the case of gluten intolerance, gluten must be withdrawn from the diet, but a nutritionist may indicate the changes required for each bowel change.

7. Pancreatitis
Pancreatitis is a serious condition that may require urgent medical attention, and emergency surgery may be performed.

What it feels like: The pain starts poorly localized and affects the left side of the belly, the part closest to the ribs, but tends to get worse and can radiate to the back. As the infection worsens the pain becomes more localized and becomes even stronger. Numbness and vomiting may also be present.

What to do: You should go to the emergency room to see if it really is pancreatitis and start treatment with analgesics, anti-inflammatories and specific enzymes for the proper functioning of the pancreas. If there is a blockage of the pancreas, surgery may be needed to remove the stones that are aggravating the disease.

8. Low back pain
What it feels: Pain in the back may appear more in the middle of the back, especially after making a lot of effort such as climbing stairs or carrying heavy bags. Staying a long time sitting or standing, tends to worsen the pain, which may begin to radiate to the abdomen. If it radiates to the buttock or to the legs, it can be an inflammation of the sciatic nerve.

What to do: Putting a hot compress on the back may relieve mild or moderate pain, but you must go to the orthopedist to do exams and begin treatment that can be done with physical therapy sessions.
