There are several basic diseases:

  • Gastrointestinal diseases – pancreatitis or inflammation of the pancreas, cholecystitis, diseases of the spleen;
  • Injuries – bruises and rib fractures, ruptures of the spleen;
  • Diseases of the respiratory system – pleurisy, pneumonia;
  • Kidney stones, especially renal colic;
  • Low back pain and herniated discs;
  • Diseases of peripheral nerves – intercostal neuralgia, and autonomic disorders, in which pain is wandering across the surface of the back.

Do not try to find out the cause of their own, at a minimum examination of the back in the back of 2-3 hours.

Pain in the digestive disorders are always associated with an error in diet, and exacerbation of chronic diseases provoked the offseason. Classic time the pain associated with cholecystitis – after 2-4 hours after a large meal, when for the breakdown of the bolus needed enzymes and digestive juices.

Pain in the back with pancreatitis is very strong, "dagger", more to the left ribs, an attack can last up to two days. Provokes aggravation fatty food, especially in combination with alcohol.

Sore ribs and back when you stretch the capsule of the spleen, in diseases of blood, chronic indolent infections, sepsis, autoimmune processes. Such pain in the rib area with food have almost nothing in common.

Injury in which back pain

The threat is of injury of the spleen and liver, their tears. These bodies – parenchymatous, composed of an actively functioning tissue, which is limited to the capsule.

Parenchyma – the main fabric body of the same function. Thus, the liver parenchyma consists of hepatocytes.

The structure of this fabric is soft, there are very few support elements. To resist mechanical stress parenchyma can not. When you break the capsule cage "out of order". Such breaks threat of a massive blood loss because the blood vessels in the parenchyma literally everywhere.

If any impact or injury in the rib area of the person is bound to send to the hospital and be discharged therefrom only when not detected no signs of internal bleeding.

Threat also hematoma of the retroperitoneal space, in which the back hurts the back. This happens when the trauma of the kidneys and adrenal glands, and duodenum 12. Concerned not only with the pain under the ribs in the back from behind, but sudden weakness, accompanied by drop in blood pressure.

Compared with the rupture of the liver or spleen broken ribs – much less risk. It is only necessary to ensure that the piece punctured the pleural cavity.

The pleura and kidneys

Pain in the back and the ribs can be dry pleurisy when the pleural layers RUB against each other. This is possible in case of advanced tuberculous process, cancer processes in the lung. This pain increases with any movement, coughing or sneezing. Also troubling shortness of breath, and in the nasolabial triangle appears blue.

If any chest pain or back it is advisable to perform an ECG to exclude myocardial infarction.

Resciesa pain in the back and ribs is at the discharge of substances from the urinary tract. Especially hard waste urate – stones consisting of potassium and sodium salts of uric acid. In appearance they resemble beans. They are an impressive size, very dense. The ureter should be thoroughly expanded to skip this stone.

back treatment

The oxalate is less dense small, easy to crumble, but they hurt on their way the inner part of the urinary tract, necessarily causing inflammation.

Neurological causes

This is a variety of infringement of the nerve roots emerging from the spinal cord. The spine can be damaged by the hernia, to be squeezed in the bone canal, muscle, a piece of vertebra, ligament, arc of the vertebra. Pain in the back and ribs are very strong, sometimes it is impossible even to breathe.

A lot of trouble – intercostal neuralgia, when burning pain pervades every breath, hurt all his back and breast. This disease is a complication of degenerative processes in the spine and not only. Contribute to the development of metabolic disorders, the carrier of viruses, endocrine diseases and abnormalities in heart rhythm or myocardial contractility, when tissues do not receive sufficient nutrition and oxygen.

Unclear is the mechanism for the development of autonomic disorders, in which the wavelike change of physiological parameters (respiratory rate, heart rate, and blood pressure), all accompanied by a migrating pain in the back and ribs.
