throbbing back pain *YourMom* Due September 14; 2 kids; Pennsylvania 7298 posts

I'm almost 26 weeks into my pregnancy and everyday now I get throbbing back pain but only when I lay on my back. Last night I lay on my back and I felt it start....like I could feel my heartbeat in my lower spine and with every beat it shot pain up my back and I atcually twitched with each throb. Then after that I feel the pain for the next several minutes. I thought at first it is braxton hicks but I had no pain or tightening in my belly.

I also have a deep arched back. It's a slight bone deformity but nothing too serious...I've had back problems since age 12. I should be seeing a chiropractor and be taking pains meds but I don't do either.


What could this be and should I be worried? I have never had back pains like this before and have no idea if it could jst be my back adjusting to the extra weight of the baby or if it's contractions. I went into pre-term labor with my first and am worried it'll happen again.

Thanks in advance.

I do not think it's your sciatic nerve -- that typically causes sharp pain in your ass and down the backside of your thigh.



Personally, it sounds like your deformed bone is getting stressed and giving your connective tissues issues.

I just got off the phone with my doc and tey can't answer anything for me. I have to be seen. If I sneeze crocked I have to be seen. I hate my doctors office..they ALWAYS do this. I don't feel I need to be seen for it I just want instant relief.
