A 44 year old male, no known medical problems at this time, however I have lower-mid back pain on the right side by the spine, above my hip,pain when bending, twisting, sitting.
It is constant,no shortage of breath,it lasts for long periods,its been 4 days now.
I do not recall doing any type of streneous activity that could possibly cause a pulled or strained muscle.
Is there any possible diagnosis or possible cause to this pain?
The muscle involved seems to be the Quadratus lumborum, a major lower back support muscle. It originates along the top rear of the iliac crest, and along the iliolumbar ligament to the bottom edge of the 12th rib and transverse processes of the first four lumbar vertebrae. It flexes the spine lateral (sidebends). Energetically the muscle is related to the large intestine and, in particular, to the I.C.V.(iliocecal valve) situated between the small and large intestine. This valve often malfunctions when a candida problem is present, like an overgrowth. I suggest an anticandida diet for a week to ten days. Avoid all simple carbohydrates like flour, sugars, potato dairy products and eat heaps of vegies. Lentils (Red) are good, and so are root vegetables like turnip, parsnip, swede, sweet potato and carrots. They are also slower to digest and alleviate hunger pains. Drink lots of clean filtered water to diminish the Herxheimer raction which will follow when the candida dies off.
Massage the right side of the lower back between the spine and the bony knobs of the pelvis (PSIS's) 30 seconds at a time 10 times a day for a week will reset the muscle.
