Every person at least once in their life from time to time with back pain. Most often, this symptom does not cause any concern and independently passes. But there are times when ignoring it is not so simple.
Back pain on the right may indicate a more serious disease than the usual physical strain.
In each case, to prevent the disaster, it is necessary to analyze all possible causes of back pain, and if needed, seek medical help.
What types of pain can bother us?
In most cases, back pain in the place where the pathological process.
Accordingly, pain in a particular place, when knowing the basics of anatomy, we can tell how the structure of the body is damaged or where to look for the answer. For example, in dry pleurisy, the pain will be over the lesion, usually under the shoulder or to the side, she appears at a depth of breath, is of a stabbing nature.
In other cases, painful feelings may not coincide with the site of the lesion.
Allocate 2 types of this pain:
projected – radiating from the center along the nerve fibers in distal parts of the body, for example, with osteochondrosis of the lumbar pain may be felt not only lower back right or left, but to give a leg;
flipped – develops due to lesions of the internal organs (mostly digestive tract), but in remote and superficial areas of the body. The basis of its origin lies the sensitive innervation of the skin in the form of a single, painful areas called zones Ged.
Back pain on the right has a different character:
cramping – comes and goes, is characteristic of lesions of the genito-urinary organs with the reduction of smooth muscles;
increasing the intensity of the pain progressively increases, is characteristic of inflammatory lesions (pneumonia, subphrenic abscess);
pain indicates a medical emergency (rupture some education, organ, embolism, intra-abdominal bleeding);
in the form of a cross is typical for diseases of the spine with involvement in the pathological process of the nerve roots of the spinal cord;
the constant and monotonous – is characteristic of the lesions of the body, for example, in diseases of the liver;
nagging back pain typical of traumatic and other injuries of the musculoskeletal apparatus.
Domestic causes of pain under the scapula or in the lumbar region on the right include all traumatic injuries (soft tissue injury of the back, stretching the back muscles, etc.). Also included in this group soreness after prolonged physical exertion, to stay in an uncomfortable position, lifting heavy objects.
This group of causes of back pain are not serious, usually resolves on its own after rest. But still we should not ignore such signs, because under the guise of the most ordinary symptom can hide a serious illness.
Diseases of the spine
This is the most common group of diseases that lead to the development of pain in the back. If long time back hurts on the right, you need to think about the possible pathology of the spine.
The main culprit of back pain is low back pain. Localization of pain will depend on what area of the spine pathologically altered. Most often affected are the lumbar spine. This results in a continuous aching pain in the lower right or left. With the defeat of the thoracic, painful sensation above the waist or below the shoulder blade.
With the development of complications of degenerative disc disease (pinched nerves, inflammation - sciatica) pain takes on a different character.
Rprojected pain syndrome – pain radiating along the course of involved nerve endings (hand, leg). This pain may be permanent (lumbodynia, thoracalgia) or in the form of a cross.
Pathology of the digestive system
With the defeat of the liver, gallbladder pain often on the right side of the back, the right upper quadrant. Often, such pain develops in diseases of the pancreas (surrounding the character of pain).
Pain right below can occur with appendicitis, especially if the atypical location of the Appendix (the position – he's hiding behind the caecum).
Pain under the right shoulder blade can often indicate an acute disease of the digestive tract. Here is the area of the Ged. Acute cholecystitis often begins this way.
Painful sensations may appear at a distance from the affected organ because of the peculiarities of innervation (Ged)
Although heart disease and typical irradiation of pain in the left half of the body, but in some cases it can give and right.
Very dangerous as I think atypical symptoms of myocardial infarction when pain under the right shoulder blade. Patients in such cases, don't even think about the possible heart damage, suffer pain, and in the meantime lost precious minutes that could save a life.
Kidney disease is often manifested by pain in the lumbar region. For conditions that are accompanied by increase in the size of the kidney (polycystic, hydronephrosis, tumors of kidney), appears constant, nagging pain lower back.
Colicky pain becomes pyelonephritis and urolithiasis. A typical example of such pain is a renal colic attack. The pain starts in the lumbar region, radiates to the abdomen and vulva.
If the woman I had nagging pain in the lower back and abdomen, it is first necessary to exclude gynaecological pathology.
It is due to such pathological conditions:
the tumor of the internal genital organs;
inflammatory lesions of the reproductive system;
if a woman is pregnant, then these symptoms may indicate a threatened miscarriage.
The defeat of the respiratory system
With the defeat of the respiratory system pain often in the back. To be painful can the following diseases:
dry pleurisy , the pain associated with breathing, increasing at the height of inspiration, has passed stabbing character, very strong, often to reduce pain, the patient begins superficially and shallow breathing;
pneumothorax (rupture of lung tissue from penetrating into the pleural cavity of air) – a sharp and sudden pain under the shoulder blade with the appearance of severe shortness of breath;
pneumonia with involvement in the pathological process of the pleura – the pain is similar to that observed in pleurisy;
cancer of the bronchi or lung tissue , painful sensations appear when the spread of the tumor in the late stage, the nature of pain and its localization depend on the degree of germination of cancer cells in nearby organs, and pleura.
Whatever the nature of the pain in right side of back, first and foremost, it should alert you. After all, it is a signal of the body about the violation, or a little more serious.
