I lay on my side and have DH push on my lower back. That relieves the pain for awhile. My back ends up killing me throughout the night and when I wake up in the morning. I constantly toss and turn trying to find a good position.
My headboard is against the wall leaving the sides of the bed away from any walls and I'm considering turning my bed so that my back can be against the wall during the night. I just feel like I need something more solid behind my back all night long. The Snoogle is nice, but it's just not cutting it. DH might not make it 3 more months with the Snoogle and me in the bed.
for back pain, i just lay against 2 pillows on my bed (sitting up)
and sciatica.. once it's happening, there is not much you can do but keep moving around. it sucks.
chelseabride2009:Anyone else experience lower back pain and sciatic pain?? Help what can I do to relieve this pressure:
I don't recommend a prenatal message, I thought it would help with my sciatic I was wrong it made it worse. I took Tylenol and stopped wearing heels as well as heating pad a night. I have back problems to begin with since I was in an accident while I was pregnant with DD#1.
gahendersons:I just started physical therapy for my sciatic nerve pain this week but the therapist is confident it will help. I didn't notice any improvements yet (nor would I expect to as it will take some time) but I did hurt like a mother last night! laying on my stomach with a pillow under my feet and a heating pad on my back seems to dull the pain a bit. Of course then I have to get up and that hurts more than anything right now.
What does the therapist have you doing at PT? My Dr referred me to PT last week after horrible back pain, but I was told that the exercises/machines that would benefit me most were not an option since I was pregnant. I am looking for any relief, as this has been going on for over a week now!
