hiya i haven't had this but i have a problem kidney anyway from previous infections that have left my kidney blocked and scarred and it flairs up from time to time and has been quite twingy throughout this pg. It is really painful so I really feel for you hun. I wish i could tell you a way to get rid of pain but i don't know any, i just find that baths are quite soothing for my back if i'm in pain. maybe deep muscle rubs/creams might help? Def check what is safe for pregnancy first though obviously! I am told just to keep well hydrated and drink/take cranberry.
Sorry i can't help more - i hope u feel better and look after yourself

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
