Re: Chronic Back Pain..

I believe most doctors do not allow aspirin or motrin when you become pregnant so you might want to check that out. Maybe an antidepressent ?

Instead of meds, you could try:

*massage
*accupuncture
*swimming pool
*cold packs
*heating pad
*biofreeze/caspician creme/ben gay/icy hot (check to make sure all ingredients are okay for pregnant women)
*physical therapy - stretching
*biofeedback
*tens unit
*relaxation tapes
*walking
*practice good posture
*watch pregnancy weight gain overall
*natural herbs - talk to your doctor

Hope this helps
