back pain and bed rest

Anyone on strict bed rest with severe back pain? I have been on bed rest since I was 8 weeks and now I am 21 weeks. My back hurts constantly, I have used cold/hot packs and nothing seems to help. Any suggestions on what I can do to help alleviate some of the pain? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.


  • Oh, this sounds horrible, you poor thing. I'm sure you've tried this but a back rub/massage with warm hands is the only thing I find effective for backache.

    Is the pain muscular? Wuld Deep Heat or Voltarol help, if it's allowed?

    I'm sorry I can't be of more help :roll:

  • if you find anything that works let us know
    i cant walk more than 2 feet at the moment with out screeming in pain, i would love to just stay in bed for the next 4 weeks but i have two other kids that need me to run around after them lol x
  • Have you tried using an exercise ball? I find this fab with back ache. Either bouncing up and down or lying over the ball and rolling round in circles xxxx
