I’ve always had a problem with back pain. Even on good days it’s there. When I got into an accident a couple of years ago and had to have some x-rays done it showed signs of arthritis an mild scoliosis that we never knew was there. I usually ignore it or it’s minimal I don’t think about it but every once in a while it causes me some severe pain.
Today it started out dull… by 6pm I was almost in tears every time I stood, bent, shifted my weight, or my left leg in any way. Pretty much anytime I moved I was hurting more than I remember having it hurt before. I tried to ‘stretch’ it out and that was a BIG mistake. I also tried walking around. A short shower seemed to help, for a little while. If I stood in one place or sat a certain way for a while it would dull to the point where I’d forget about it till I moved and the pain shot through me. Being pregnant isn’t helping since the strongest thing I have that I can take is extra strength Tylenol, and the pain is laughing at that.
I’m not going to fret about it too much. I already have an appointment on Monday with the Doctor for the baby so I’ll ask then if there is anything else I can do. If you all have any ideas till then I’m all ears!!
