Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
How are you feeling now?
Is there still some back pain or is it all gone?
Have you had such episodes in the past?
Feeling ok about 80% think the other 20% is down to feeling a bit nervous, only time I can remember is 20 years ago when I had a kidney stone but passed it in hospital, the back pain has gone
Where exactly on the lower back was the pain located?
At the side of my spine, I did have a bad urine infection 3 years ago which took about 10 week to make me feel ok again, anti biotica made me shake so I used Buchu Leaves which is herbal but my urine infection was cleard in a week
I thought it might have been a reaction to some cod loins I had eaten
I think that you should be seen for this and worked up with a possible CT scan of your pelvis and abdomen required to rule out/rule in a possibility of stone causing this pain.
I do not think its a reaction to cod loins that you have eaten.
I think that it would require further tests to make a clear diagnosis.
I would recommend that you should visit your GP to explore the cause. It could still have been a kidney stone since you have had a history of that happening in the past as well.
Are you with me?
Yes I understand
Any more questions that you would like to ask me?
Not really except have you heard of Buchu Leaves
Yes I have.
What would you like to know about it?
I have read it up and used it but I would like your take on it
My take on it is that I have never used it in any of my patients ever.
The thing with these herbs or supplements available in the market is that we can never be sure if they work or not.
There are no randomized controlled trials done on them.
So we can never be dead sure if they work or how they work.
So my advise would be to avoid such things :)
Any more questions?
Why is that when it works and is a lot better than filling yourself full of anti biotics
I understand that it may work wonderfully well for you.
For some its really great.
I am pleased to here as a medical man that you have an open mind to other cures
I but like I mentioned its something that has not been tested in randomized controlled trials so we do not know exactly how it works and if it works in all the patients in whom its administered.
But if its working for you you should continue to take it.
Well thanks for the chat, Goodbye
I have no issues with that.
