  • Try a heating pad on your back! I use one every night and my back pain has gotten SO much better. I usually lay on the heating pad for about 30-60 mintues then my boyfriend will rub loosens it up and helps alot!

  • I had the same problem and I went into the hospital because the pain was so intense I thought I was going into labor but after being there and running test I found out I have gallstones so maybe you should just talk to your doctor about getting an ultrasound done to check.

  • I have been dealing with it too and tried everything you mentioned with no help. The miracle: an excercise ball! sitting on that thing is the only way that I have found to relieve my back pain. Hope that helps!
