I have just recently quit taking pain meds after almost 4 years of chronic back pain (wanted to quit as my hubby and I want to start a family).
I am now just relying on Tylenol and Advil, for the daily-ongoing-pain. I have had (2) Microdiscectomy surgeries in the past 3 years...I am so over being in pain, every single day of my life.
Any other meds you can recommend for 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:
*biofreeze/caspician creme/ben gay/icy hot (check to make sure all ingredients are okay for pregnant women)
*physical therapy - stretching
*practice good posture
*watch pregnancy weight gain overall
*natural herbs - talk to your doctor
