Lumbago During Pregnancy?
Good night … I want to ask … I’m pregnant, pregnancy is entering 4 months but why from this morning I have a back pain … even when walking, it still hurts. please explain. thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lumbago during pregnancy can occur due to various things. Generally divided because of conditions that are related to pregnancy and which are not related to pregnancy.
When it comes to pregnancy, it can be due to the influence of hormones that make muscles relax and are more prone to injury. In addition, it could also be due to body weight centered on the stomach, so that posture becomes changed and causes back pain. But with a gestational age of 4 months, this might not be the cause.
Furthermore, for those not related to pregnancy, it could be due to an incorrect position when performing certain physical activities, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, kidney infections or pinched nerves.
What is clear, all the possibilities can not be ascertained if without direct examination. Therefore, we suggest that if it is very disturbing or accompanied by other complaints, you should check your complaints with your obstetrician so that you can do a history, physical examination and support needed. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, increase your consumption of water, limit physical activity, especially lifting heavy loads, warm compresses to the painful part or stick to patches, do not carelessly take drugs even though they are free drugs because you are pregnant, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
