OH MY GOSH MY BACK IS KILLING ME.
I feel like I lost a whole week to back pain.
I don't know if it is sciatic nerve pain from a weirdly positioned baby (possible-- I only feel her in the very front and very low-- I remember feeling the other kids on the sides and higher. Also, I feel her most when I am sitting straight up-- lying on my side not so much) or just plain old muscle pain, but OH MY GOD. I cannot even sleep it hurts so bad (and I hate sleeping on my side anyway, even with a body pillow and without debilitating pain). It's my right lower back area/hip, and it hurts all the way down my leg.
Things that sort of help:
Yoga and other stretches
Exercise (once I get going)
Things that suck:
Looking down while standing up (WHAT THE HELL)
Cow in cat/cow
Getting up from a seated position
Getting out of bed
I am not comfortable getting acupuncture or going to the chiropractor right now, even though I know both of those are recommended for either kind of pain, and I really don't want to take meds at all, but I WILL take Tylenol if it gets really, really, really bad. Any other miracle cures you can think of?
Anyway, that's where I have been.
