I don't think there is a given number of how many is too many..what matters more is how consistant they are. Like are they every 5 minutes for an hour or two straight or is it like you get one,then another one in 5 then another one in 10 then another one in 6 then another one in 20? If so...thats normal...it helps to turn on a warm shower, get down on your hands and knees and let the water run over your lower back.
