Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The burden of pregnancy that the mother has to support for months can indeed leave pain along the vertebrae, starting from the neck, back, to the buttocks. This condition can be felt with light to severe intensity and limits daily activities. Not infrequently, this pain lasts for weeks or months after giving birth.
In fact, as long as the pain you are experiencing is of a mild intensity, without swelling, weakness in the legs, numbness (numbness), and urinary control disorders, chances are that your condition is still relatively normal and will improve slowly by itself. You can do the following tips to speed up recovery:
Compress the painful spinal area with warm compresses regularly Sleep on a comfortable bed, not too soft or too hard Choose comfortable clothes, which are able to accommodate your movements, including when sleeping Limit lifting heavy objects first, especially in a bent position (including when holding your baby) Get used to breastfeeding your baby in the right position, that is, sitting back in a comfortable chair, not lying on your side too often Start exercising regularly. Eating, drinking and resting regularly If the complaint still does not improve in 2 up to 4 weeks after delivery, it's a good idea to see a doctor or a neurologist directly. It is feared that the pain you feel occurs due to disorders of the nerves (for example due to diabetes, pinched nerves), disorders of the spine (such as infections, scoliosis, tumors, kyphosis), disorders of the muscles or internal organs they contain (such as stones or kidney infections. , myoma, ovarian cyst), and so on. It could also, the pain arises because of the side effects of anesthesia (anesthetics) used if you previously had a cesarean delivery. Several examinations, such as X-rays, ultrasound, electromyography, laboratory, and so on, doctors can also do to determine the best diagnosis and treatment of your complaint.
