My mother had a severe pain in her lower back can’t walk far, sleeping all the time, spacey, urination problems?
My mother had a sever pain in her lower back that traveled upward and had trouble breathing a couple days ago, she is about 70. Since then she saw a chiropractor but wont see a doctor, she still has pain, cant walk far, sleeping all the time, spacey, urination problems unspecified but dark in color. She has me worried so any ideas would be welcome. Thank you
she seems to have a lumbar disc prolapse causing her spinal nerve roots to compress leading to pain. the urination problems and weakness dont seem to be related to this lower back pain though.
make her drink more fluids and give her vitamin supplements
SHE IS VERY DEFICIENT IN IMMUNITY AND SEEMS TO BE VERY WEAK. SHE HAS TO BE GIVEN IV FLUIDS FOR ATLEAST 5 DAYS IN A ROW WITH IV BOLUS INJECTIONS OF VITAMINS AND CALCIUM GLUCONATE. THIS WILL ENERGISE HER AND GET HER AMBULATING
she needs to drink more of fluids and water. oral rehydration solutions with more of electrolytes and fruit juices will help. she can use a waist belt to give support to her spine so that she can walk long distances. get her blood investigations done and consult a physician
I think these back pain radiating upwards is due to a degree of osteoprosis of vertebrae..she needs calcium ..vitamins and plenty of water…
