What can I use for terrible back pain during pregnancy?

I’m 15 weeks pregnant with excruciating back pain. I have been going to physical therapy which helps tremendously but I still have pain during the week and was wondering if it is safe to use an icy hot or lidocaine patch to help with the pain?

Definitely try bio freeze!! Chronic back problems and this works way better for me than icyhot!

I had this problem when I was pregnant and I got prescribed baclofen it’s a light muscle relaxer that is safe for pregnancy it’s worth a shot!

If its really bad u can get script for Panadeine forte from dr.theres categories and its in the category where u can have it if needed in pregnancy .i had to for chronic pain when i was pregnant x

Turmeric really helps with inflammation

I used to use a heating bottle

I’d call my obgyn and make sure it’s okay to be on the safe side…hope you get to feelin better mama

A belly band has worked WONDERS For me!!! I use Baobeibody belly band and it 1000% is worth every penny. It helps my back pain, my hip pain, and my round ligament pain, days are not the same without it.

I was always told not to use any of that stuff, that I could use heating pads/ice packs and tylenol only.
