For the last two years my lower back has slowly been getting worse pain wise. I'm not talking the muscles of the back either but the actual spine....or at least it feels like the bone of the spine when I stretch that hurts so badly tears come to my eyes.
This has never happened to me before my daughter was born 2 years ago and yes I remember have back pain during my pregnancy as well but it was minor stuff. Now it's like I cannot even lean backwards in any way shape or form; can't stretch above my head, or even pick up my daughter without the pain. It really makes it hard to teach my students movements for the songs we learn, the younger the child the more movement you need to help teach the song....especially if they are autistic.
My sister in law says it's probably my sciatic (spelling) nerve and there is nothing that can be done for it. She has that and that is what the doctor told her....gave her some instructions on what to do if it acts up. Her son was born 6 months prior to my daughter and get this.....we both had epidurals. I didn't know she had an epi until my mom told her about my back and she said that hers has acted up ever since then as well.
I'm planning on going to the Orthopedic doctor once my new insurance kicks in because I don't like the one I have now.....just a few more weeks until the new year so I can manage. But it got me wondering if there are other mom's out there that have something simular to this.
