"Why do I do it?.... because nights alone aren't permanent, missing him reminds me that I'm lucky enough to have someone to miss, and because I'm not afraid to make sacrifices for true love"
Heartstrings13:Ice works better for me than heat. I kept trying heat until my chiropractor told me my particular pain needs ice. About 20 minutes does the trick for me.
This! And laying on my side.
might not be instant but taking a magnesium supplement might help, as low magnesium causes muscle spasms.
Or seeing a chiropractor
Bethbsn06:If it doesn't get better call the dr. Could be ctx.
what is ctx?
also, I WISH I could see a chiropractor, my insurance doesn't cover it at all, I've seen one before because the office of my physical therapist had a chiropractor and they billed in in such a way as to bundle the two together, but now I can't go there anymore...
Most days lately I put some ice on my back while I'm sitting on the couch. Then before bed, I take a warm bath, followed by a massage courtesy of my husband. Doesn't make the pain go away, but it definitely helps!
Oh, and Tylenol, of course.
I've had bad back pain periodically for the past several weeks. I try stretching and moving around until I find a comfortable position (standing, sitting, laying). What helps the most is when I can get dh to give me a massage / apply counterpressure.
p.s. I think ctx means contractions
I'm investing in a heating pad tomorrow, I'm praying it helps, b/c my back litterally feels like it's on fire after 1/2 the day! Be-time supper comes around I just feel like crying! My poor kids! I just want this baby out so the pain will stop!
