Bed rest need help!

Anyone on complete bed rest that has severe back pain that they can't get rid of? Need some tips on what to do. I have used hot/cold packs and moved for every position possible nothing helps. Also, have taken Tylenol. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you

  • Back rubs helped me more than anything. When I didn't have someone to do it for me I rolled up a towel and moved my body over it. Good luck

  • I love using a heatng pad. It won't hurt the baby if it's on low or med... I actually don't even know that it would if it was turned up but to be safe, low feels great and really helps with the pain. My OB suggested it and I go to a high-risk "special" doc. They know! :)
