I'm really struggling with back pain and spasms following the birth of my daughter. She is now 11 weeks old and the pain is getting much worse.
I have frequent back spasms which wipe me out for a day or two. I can walk at a snails pace and I can no longer lift the baby. It's really getting me down.
I have been prescribed Naproxen and Co-codamol but I am no better. Ice provides temporary relief. I am breast feeding so can't take more medication, but I am contemplating stopping feeding to get some diazapan.
I have been to Physio three times but it just seems to make it worse. She presses so hard and causes my back to spasm - the last session my back spasmed 5 times. I absolutely hate it and I find it impossible to get off the Physio bed without further spasms. I have also been to a chiropractor twice.
I feel I am in a viscous cycle, as spasms seem to set me back and so I am never taking steps forward.
Have any mums been through this and come out the other side? I am usually a very positive person but this is really getting to me.
Also, any others been through this and have got better?
