Low Back Pain Linked To Bacterial Infection


Recommended Posts

Many people with Dysautonomia/POTS have mentioned having back pain.

"New research suggests that some 40% of chronic lower back pain (CLBP) could be caused by bacteria, and that a significant percentage of people with lower back pain following a herniated disc and swelling in the spine could find relief by taking an antibiotic."

Interesting. I haven't had significant low back pain (which I did for many yrs due to a herniated disc in my lumbar spine) since I took a long, strong course of an antibiotic cocktail for my babesia/Lyme. I had noticed this but thought the docs would look at me like I was crazy. And I certainly wasn't complaining that most of that pain was gone. :-)
