Has anyone else's back been hurting?

I have had back pain off and on since my son was born, nine months ago. It has gotten worse the last few days. Does anyone know how to help without taking medications?

  • did you get an epidural? that's one of the side effects from it.

    it takes quite a while for the back to heal from that. yoga and stretching should help.

  • Heating pads and ice packs might help a little =] Back pain sucks!

  • I have the same problem. My son is 5 months. I dont know why it does that, but mine has hurt long before my son was born too though.

  • Yes, I did have an epidural. how long do you think this back pain will last if it is from the epidural?

  • I had to have a c section and I wish I didn't. My back is in so much pain too and I thought for a long time that I had a cracked bone because there was an xray I took that showed it slightly cracked in my lower spine area. My son was born 7 months ago and I hate my back is always hurting.
