Ask the experts

Can you have low back pain with yeast infections? 

Doctor's response

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.
