I have had 3 kids & 10 epidural's all together & the back pain is coming from that. The doctor should have told you that getting an epidural could cause back pains in your future. After my 1st child I had back pains up to a year later.

I would guess that headaches and back pain are the most common types of pain that people seek relief for. As people get older, arthritic pain becomes very, very common.

The most common types of back pain injuries are usually improper lifting techniques and car accidents. You can avoid lifting injuries by always lifting with your legs instead of your back or upper body.

Many medications can help alleviate back pain. The common recommendation is to consult a medical professional as to the best medical course and medication for treating back pain.

Lower back pain is common, but the remedies for it are very conservative. Most lower back pain is treated with rest, over the counter NSAIDs, and physical therapy. You may receive handouts or pamphlets with back-strengthening exercises. The reason why the treatment is so low-tech is that many times the pain is in the muscles, not in the spine. For back pain that is not improving with conservative treatment, imaging and other studies may be required to rule out something more serious.

By far the most common form of treatment for chronic back pain involves what people do best and do naturally: they rest the back when back pain begins. Using a heat source is also an extremely common form of pain treatment for the back. As far as medication is concerned the most common form of treatment is the use of NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as Celebrex, aspirin, ibuprofin, etc. As far as natural Alternative Medicine treatment is concerned you will find that chiropractic care and acupuncture are very popular forms of treatment.

No, swelling of the low back is not normal, although muscle spasms and low back pain are a common side effect of pregnancy.

MEDICAL TEXT cites the MOST COMMON side effects of Seasonale are: abdominal pain/cramps; acne; bloating; fluid retention; dizziness; nausea; vomiting. In the less common and rare cases, it does not list back pain anywhere. HOWEVER: if you have found a good birth control you are happy with, mabey the relaxed atmosphere and good sexual relations are the cause of the back pain!?!?

Labor pain is felt in the abdomen ( think "cramps" while menstruating, lasting 30 sec. to 2 minutes, with intervals), as the uterus contracts. One can also have pain in the lower back region. Back labor can indicate that the baby's head has not yet turned into the best position for delivery.

One of the most common causes of back pain is poor sleeping habits. You should try sleeping on a different mattress, or position, and see if it helps.
