Post subject: Agonising Back Pain
My girl-friend is coming up to week eleven. She has had back pain for the past four weeks - but it has intensified in the past week. The doctors say that is could be sciatica, and that it could be that the growing uterus is expanding and pressing on a nerve.
The doctor says that she can only advise to take paracetamol for the pain - can anyone offer any other advice for this? Has anyone else experienced this ... ? If so, what is the best way of dealing with it? Will this pain subside? Are there any exercises to do ... and so on?
Many thanks ...
