  • you should go get a massage. it could be from standing with your hip out to the side while holding your kids. there is a little muscle above your hip called quadratus lumborum that causes A LOT of pain. hope this helps

  • You can take Advil and Tylenol together for temporary relief. Get a checkup before it gets worse.

  • Been there. Turned out to be a gluten allergy that caused inflammation. Within 5 days the pain had gone & I could walk again. Go gluten free and take a daily probiotic.

  • I don't know what you use to massage it but there is this ointment i have to trust that works wonders~ talk to your dr and if it turns out to be just body aches you may contact me about the ointment. Hope you feel better soon~ i know your pain because I had aches too.
