Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Worst back pain of my life!

8 answers
This is my second pregnancy, I'm 18 weeks along and feel like my spine is being ripped out! I am even finding my legs giving out and my hips killing me! Thought I wasn't supposed to feel this toward the end. Someone said it could possibly be twins, I go for another ultra sound on dec 13th to see! What should I do! I've done hot baths, heating pads, icy hot and I'm out of ideas!

Call your doctor and tell them what's going on and what you're trying to do to ease your pain.Has your doctor okayed any type of pain medicine like Tylenol?  If he/she has, take the recommended amount and rest.
He told me tylenol was ok and Ibproufen every now and then and it's not helping at all. Rest is out of the question for the most part I have a REALLY hyper 5 year old little boy. The only thing the doctor says it that it is going to probably going to get worse I just have to go with it :(.
I've had the same problem since 9 weeks. It just keeps getting worse. The doctor ended up having me do pool therapy and lidocaine patches.
And I'm only having one baby.
It can happen with one. I had it for my first, and this one too. I suggest physiotherapy! And get a good support belt ( not the walmart kind, a proper fitted one from a medical supply store of physio office). Good luck hun!
I seriously just wanna rip my left leg off, and the right lower part of my back! It's to the point my knees hurt because of the way I have to walk!! Monday cannot get here fast enough!
