For me after 5 months I went to the drs numerous times, had an X-ray done and finally was told that I needed physical therapy to strengthen my core muscles. Since I have been going 2xs a weekend there's some progress but ultimately after almost a year of being pregnant and taking care of her, the lower abs are now being worked out and we believe that will start to decrease the pain, which it has already

My daughter is going to be 5 years old in a few months and I still have severe back pain. I think mine is from the epidural too.. I usually take advil or sometimes when it has been really bad ive taken percosset.. But mine usually hurts on the left side for a few days and then will go to the right side.. Anybody else have it when it switches sides???

Well,my son is 5 and back pain is my worse enemy. Its always there. I usually take Aleve for the pain but sometimes it does'nt help. My mom says that its because of the epidural but I'm not sure if you had one. It just doesnt go away. WHY ME???

i have severe back pain, and what helped me was working on my core strength, I have a 7 month oid and I gained alot of weight during my pregnancy I have lost a great deal but my tummy is still all jelloee and my doctor told me once i started working on my abs and stomache muscles my back would feel better, i didnt really believe him but in 3 weeks im already feeling amazingly better. I could barely walk before by day's end i couldnt even get up from sitting down my back hurt so much , my son is 22lbs and very clingy so carrying him all the time really takes a toll, the excercises are very minimal and simple and u get your body back at the same time!!!!

One reply chiropractor. Alot of drs actually now recommend that women that have a natural birth should look into having some treatments straight after. If your back is out of whack it throws the whole system out. Heat pads are great but only a very temporary solution, but make sure to use one before going to a chiropractor as it helps relax everything so the treatment works better.

My daughter will be 10 months in a few days and I have a lot of back pain, too. The heating pad and tylenol is a great idea. The bubble bath, when I can get one, with really warm water and around 30 minutes or so of being in it really helps. If it's any encouragement, mine is starting to go away. Hang in there.

It sucks huh? My daughter is 7 months and my back hurts all the time. Im too young for this lol. The only thing that helps me is either a heating pad or ib profen/tylenol. You can always take a bath or ask for a back rub. Im right there with you though!
