Try taking a warm bath or shower try taking some Tylenol extra strength as that is the only thing you can take for pain unless your doctor prescribed something for you as you already state he/she did but your still having pain

My doctor gave me a referral to a physical therapist, who helps me with strengthening exercises and light massage, which has helped some. I'd recommend doing light exercises like prenatal yoga or swimming: I was so sick for so long that I think all my muscles atrophied and made carrying the extra weight really hard on my back but it's getting more manageable now. Good luck!

Here's some advice from the MedHelp website and our I'm Expecting app on back pain. You can find this in the app by going to the Pregnancy Diary from the home screen and selecting Back pain from the Symptoms menu. Then click the menu bar in the upper left and select Symptoms Manual to see your symptoms. Hope you feel better soon!
