Viewer Question:

Can you have low back pain with yeast infections?

Doctor's Answer:

Low back pain is not caused by yeast infections, so another diagnosis needs to be considered. There are a huge number of causes of low back pain, so be prepared to give a detailed history of the duration, intensity, aggravating and alleviating factors, associated symptoms, etc. to the doctor. For more, see MedicineNet.com's Low Back Pain article.

Thank you for your question.
