Back pain






Back strain treatment





I used to have this weird one - sided back a strained muscle or was very rare that Iv suffered a bad episode of pain..recently its gotten SO bad that it takes a lot of effort to get my back up. Every time I bend it gets stuck at a certain level and becomes so hard not to yell out "OUUUUUUCH"..i'm pregnant so I cant get an x-ray or anything done - I think - so any advice on what this cud b and how I can heel it with no medical interference?

Backache is so common in pg since you are dealing with weight shifing toward your middle and straining your spine. Although, it will be much worse if you had some back issues prior to becoming pregnant.
I have degenerative disk disease in my spine (lower and neck) and by the time I was in my second trimester I was feeling it. I was 29 at the time... By the last week of my pg, I was prescribed narcotics cause it got so bad!

My advise would be to do stretches and yoga to get your body moving and keep it from getting stiff. I wish someone would've told me that! By the time anyone offered that advise, I was literally the size of a cow and immobile lol.

Hope your enjoying your pregnancy! You will start feeling the baby kick soon!! That's the BEST!!!! You will be forever changed and won't take your hands off your belly till you deliver ;0)

I swear I'm about to cry!! I just can't believe I'v reached this point in my pregnancy..can u believe it?! 13 weeks today! anxiety increases everyday knowing that i'v gone this far..i just keep wondering how long it is until my "bubble is burst"..I seriously can't believe it..and can't wait to feel the kicking! I'm starting to enjoy this pregnancy but the backache and the vomiting from acid reflux is still making it difficult hehe..but at least i no im still very pregnant althu I don't feel it..
I'm sorry u had DISK during ur pregnancy maan!!! this must b horrible..both my parents have it...and its been SO hard to deal with it..
I dunno what I have exactly..but its kinda getting worse in time..
I love ur advice really..I'll definitely join a Yoga class next month since its not gonna harm the pregnancy and gimme the relief I need..:) Thanks!

hugs n kisses!

My back hurts on and off again and also gets to that extreme point where if I straighten it out, I can rarely avoid yelling out loud.  I feel like it's a muscle spasm sometimes (when it hurts that bad) but then other times it's just a dull pain.  I am not happy about it either but I don't think they have any good times for Yoga at my gym since i work during most of them.  Oh well, like you, I'm just glad to be PG and take the symptoms as they come...nosebleeds, backaches, and indigestion and all!  Take care!
