Hi - have a question - I was pregnant and miscarried in june (3months) I knew I had to be miscarrying due to the pain in my lower back - I have had this pain more on than off since then. It seems to be more on one side than the other... I sleep with a heating pad and that seems to help thru the night - and have stopped using a pillow - as that seems to have helped as well... But still have the pain during the day - and gets worse by night - anyone have any ideas as to why this might be? And what can I do? -
plus----i believe I am pregnant again (only days) :)
thanx!

Back Pain
Hi-in responce to your question-i am a pregnant massage therapist, about 6.5 months (number three). I have been working with a great chiropractor for the past two years, who happens to specialize in pediatrics and pregnancy. Miscarriage can be a tricky subject because it can be caused by so many different things. But I wouldn't put it on the back pain alone. I have not gone miscarriage myself, but my sister had gone through 1 miscarriage and 1 molar pregnancy before giving birth to my beautiful nephew 5 months ago. From experiance, my sister and I have had low back pain with all of our pregnancies. I would suggest you look into the area for a chiropractor and massage therapist specializing in pregnancy. I have been regularly adjusted and massaged with each of my pregnancies and my sister with her last pregnancy. To be on the safe side, don't get any type of treatment till your four months pregnant. I think you problem could be related to a tilted sacrum and/or a misaligned lumbar verabre. Also you could be having stress related tension in your low back. So I know this will be hard, but try not to stress. Currently I am having high-blood pressure do to a little stress and the only thing that has been helping me is my adjustments and massage. Well, I hope everything goes well for you this time around.

Sounds like you may have some nerve compression from the disc bulge.

You should be evaluated by a spine specialist, either an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in spines or a neurosurgeon that specializes in spines only.

Back/Butt Pain
I have been experiencing this as well this past week. I'm 25 weeks pregnant (6 months along). Sharp shooting pain in my lower back/upper butt.And I can't move my upper body or my legs without getting this shooting pain! It makes my days so difficult to take care of my 3.5 year old son.

People keep suggesting it's sciatic nerve problem, but I do NOT think so as the pain does NOT go down my leg, nor do I get any tingling/numbness in my lower legs or feet.

You are not alone, & I have been reading the answers that others have provided for you, to use for my own situation as well.
I have never miscarried, this is my 2nd pregnancy, but I think what you are describing is exactly the pain I have been feeling as well.

I noticed your post was from 3.5 years ago. Did you ever find out what the problem was??

Sincerely,
Lissa

This is a common problem for pregnant women. There is a simple procedure that some have found "miraculous' results. But don't worry, it is not some quack procedure.It is administered by a licensed, board certified, medical doctor.

Good Luck
