Back pain

I am 15 weeks tomorrow and I have horrible left lower back pain....upper bottome pain. It hurts so bad. I called the on call doctor and they said I must have pulled a muscle however I know what that feel like and it doesn't feel like a pulled muscle. First what can I do to help with the pain and second what could be causing the pain? I know you aren't doctors but I am just looking for suggestions on what could be going on so I can ask more informed questions to the doctor. Thank you

I have something like that around my hips and lower back. That is b/c your pelvis is stretching and pushing back into the lower portion of your spine. I've been going to the chiropractor for that and has done a WORLD of difference. It was so bad I couldn't stand. It is very common to have a sore back. As long as your not cramping or bleeding, you don't need to stress. It's very common for that. You can always call your doctor and see what he or she says. Just try and relax and maybe have a spouse, friend or whoever to rub it and see if it helps. You can even try an ice pack, if its swollen it will bring the inflammation down and take off some pressure. Good luck!
