Post subject: back ache
im 20 week and have really bad back pain in my lower back iv been having time off work and my boss is not happy.i rang my midwife and she said when i have my scan i should ask to see a phsyieo (sorry for the [*@!#%*] spelling) she said she dont no what it is at 20 weeks i sunt really have it. i fink its cause i have flat feet. and while standing up at work for 3 hours in one spot then 2 moving around im puting pressure on it. iv already seen the doc and he said i should just put up with it and take paracetmol. but that dont help my boss. i think he thinks im liein or playing on the pregnancy and keeps saying im not ill im pregnant ( i could kill im when he says this) any advice plz xxx

first thing is go back to your gp and ask them to refer you to physio, there's a waiting list for this so the sooner your refered the sooner you'll be seen to. your gp can't deny you this, so just demand to be refered, if this proves difficult.

you could also get your doctor to write a note for your boss saying that you have been having back pain and have been refered to physio, that way even if it doesn't shut your boss up, you know you have the upper hand cause you've given a doc's note explaining your situaton. (you should keep a copy of the note for yourself incase u need it for legal reasons, unfair dismissal and that, although would it be likely that would happen)???

i have a bad back since i was 14, and it's no picnic, so i really feel for you here. definately get the phisio as this is a great help, and they also give back strengthening exercises that will help with pain, as im sure you don't want to be feeding you and your baby loads of pain killers.

anyways hope this helps, and the best of luck to you and baby.

i'd really push for the physio if it's really bad, just that u have to go on a waiting list for the appointment so better to be reffered sooner than later. did you mention it to her?? hope u get it sorted, and good luck on monday.
