Many people immediately associate lower left back pain with any muscle strains or injuries to the area. With how common muscle injuries are to the lower back, it’s no wonder that that’s everyone first assumption. The problem is, not all lower back pain is caused by muscle sprains or strains. It can be dangerous and even downright deadly to immediately assume that’s the cause and not seek treatment right away.
Most lower back pain associated in the center of a person’s lower back is probably caused by some sort of strain or inflammation in the area.

Back pain that’s located more on one side over the other could signal a potentially life threatening situation known as a kidney infection. Chances are, by the time someone is feeling lower left back pain from a kidney infection, the kidney infection has been going on for awhile. Kidney infections can cause permanent damage to a person’s kidney. In a worst case scenario, a kidney infection can cause a person’s kidney to stop functioning entirely.

Sometimes, the fever can spike extremely high, very quickly.
Kidney infections can be caused by bladder or urinary tract infections. If you’re prone to them, you really need to immediately seek treatment if you have lower left back pain. Bladder infections can be asymptomatic. That means, you can have one and never know it because you don’t feel it. Bladder infections can cause kidney infections by allowing bacteria to go into the kidneys. That’s why any lower left back pain really should be evaluated by a doctor to see if it’s the beginning stages of a kidney infection.
Another potential cause of lower left back pain could be a pinched nerve. Many nerves branch out over our entire body from the spinal cord.

This is the original recipe for making punczki that was brought from Europe by my wife’s grandmother when she first arrived at Ellis Island and the onward to Pennsylvania Where she finally settled. Just how old this recipe really is I have no idea but the only thing I know is how good the punczki’s are. You must follow this recipe exactly or it will not work well, I know, I have tried to create some shortcuts that were ok but not as good. This recipe yields 4dozen of the most delicious punczki that you ever had. Remember all ingredients should be room temperature. 1. Disolve : ¾ ounce yeast in ¼ cup warm water warm ½ quart milk add to the yeast and warm milk 3 cups flour and let rise for about ½ hour to create what is called a sponge. 2. Put together: ½ quart warm milk ¼ lb. Butter 2 tablespoons shortening ½ cup sugar 2 tablespoons whiskey 3. Mix steps 1 and 2 with 6 eggs, pinch of salt, 9 cups flour until you get a really good textured dough. Let the dough rise until double in size, cut the dough into 2 ounce pieces and form balls. Place the dough balls on a well oiled flat pan, let them rise for about ½ hour to about ¾ hour. Fry dough balls in 350 degree oil until well browned on both sides then put them on a brown paper bag to drain the oil form frying. Let cool for a while and fill using a pastry bag with a tip that has a whole about the size of a pencil, roll in sugar or 10x sugar and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee. You can fill them with prune leckvar or any jellies that you like.
If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a dozen times: “Make homemade cinnamon rolls? From scratch? Are you crazy? That takes all day! “ Actually, it depends upon the recipe. I have several recipes for homemade cinnamon rolls that do, indeed, take at least all afternoon, if not all day — scald the milk and let it cool to room temperature (30 minutes); mix the dough and let it raise for an hour (1.5 hours); punch down the dough and let it raise for another hour (1 hour); shape into cinnamon rolls and let raise for another hour (1.5 hours); and then, finally, bake the cinnamon rolls (30 minutes) — for a grand total of 5 hours from start to finish. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You really can make homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch in two hours or less. Here’s my recipe: 2 cups of warm water 1/2 cup sugar 4 teaspoons dry yeast (or two packages of dry yeast) 2 eggs 1 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup Canola oil (I use Canola, but you can use any kind of cooking oil) (you can also use shortening, if you prefer) 6 to 7 cups of flour Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let sit for a minute or two. Add the sugar and salt. Mix. Add the cooking oil (or shortening), 2 eggs, 2 cups of flour and beat until smooth. Stir in 3 more cups of flour. Begin kneading the dough, adding the final cup of flour. If the dough seems too sticky, knead in more flour, a quarter to a half cup at a time. Let the dough “rest” for 15 to 20 minutes. (I leave it sitting on the counter and use the time to wash up the bowl and other utensils and to clean off the counter top. ) Roll the dough into a rectangle that’s 24 to 30 inches long by about 16 inches wide. Spread with soft butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Starting at the wide end, roll into a log. Cut the cinnamon rolls into equal sized slices (approximately one inch wide each or slightly more) and place into two greased 9×13 pans. Put in a warm place to rise for 45 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (or until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown). Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then turn out of the pans. This recipes makes two dozen cinnamon rolls. If you want REALLY BIG cinnamon rolls, cut into 12 equal pieces 2 inches wide. Total amount of time needed from start to finish (including time to bake) is about 2 hours. ****************************
