Lower Back Pain FAQ
How do I know if my lower back pain is serious?
It is important to know the difference between pain that is a mild annoyance and pain that requires immediate medical attention. The following symptoms likely denote signs that need attention:
- A sudden spike in pain, discomfort, weakness, or numbness
- Loss of bladder function
- Severe stomach pain
- Unexplainable weight loss
- The pain results from a fall or severe blow to your back
Is my lower back pain stemming from the muscles or spine?
Pain emanating from the muscles will usually be a dull, consistent pain that you feel throughout the day. When it comes from the spine, however, it will be a sharp, "electric" pain that you only feel when you try to stand. At Tricity Pain Associates, we can help patients recover from both of these types of injuries.
How long does lower back pain last?
Depending on if your pain is acute or chronic, it could last anywhere from a few days to over 12 weeks. For this reason, it's important to get your lower back pain diagnosed by a member of our team as soon as possible.
