Si joint pain help!

I tweaked my lower back getting up from sitting on the ground this morning and now I'm dying in pain. Ok maybe that's dramatic but still.
I'm 33wks laying down with a hot pack took some Tylenol. What else can I do? This is terrible and I'm just not sure what to do!!

Oh, mama, I'm sorry, I feel your pain! I did the same thing when I was about 20 weeks with my DD. I ended up in the ER getting morphine shots because I couldn't move and was vomiting from the pain when I tried to. I also ended up taking Vicodin for about 4 days afterwards... but it did get better quickly after that! Good luck, I wish I had better suggestions for you.

I would consider seeing a chiropractor to make sure everything is aligned correctly and that tweak didn't move things around. I hope it resolves itself and you feel better soon!

So sorry you have been through this too, it is terrible! But I'm happy to know there can be an end in sight. If its not improving tomorrow ill call my OB. I can't get comfortable right now and have no clue how I will sleep tonight

I called one nearby but b/c of Sandy I think a lot of places remain closed around here. I can't find any that even mention taking care of pregnant patients on their websites though and that makes me nervous

Ice packs. You don't want to use heat. I had horrible SI joint pain during pregnancy. Going to the chiropractor was the only thing that helped me. Hope you feel better!

I agree with this.

I had a miserable 2nd pregnancy b/c of joint pain. The chiro was a miracle.

I highly recommend going for a few visits. It helps SO MUCH with pregnancy comforts.

Well, the anatomy of your spine and your other bones doesn't change b/c you are pregnant, so they don't need to "specialize" in pregnant women. KWIM? They are just making sure everything is aligned and moving properly.

Maybe when some places open, try calling around and asking. I've never met a chiro that DOESN'T see preggo women.

Is there something in particular you are nervous about?

Re: Si joint pain help!

I am 30 weeks and have same issue.

ICE ICE ICE and see physical therapist. I saw mine on friday morning (barely able to walk). He did a few very gentle adjustments and iced my back. By lunch I was feeling 100% better.

You don't need to be in pain over this.

I have to go back to get strengthing exercises to keep SI/pelvis aligned. In fact I should call him right now.

Thanks ladies!! I just called one nearby and have an appt Friday. It is unfortunately the only day I have care for my two year old. I will ice until then and try and survive.
I guess I'm just so hesitant because I've never seen a chiropractor and don't know anyone who has so I don't even have anyone to recommend someone for me.
Thanks for all the advice!
