History noted, My suggestion is to follow some simple exercises and postural techniques. The relief will be gradual and makes you comfortable. Use a pillow under your thighs while sleeping, which straightens your back. Sit erect so that your back is straight while feeding as well as relaxing.Drink a cup of milk daily before going to sleep. For time being till you getting used to the modifications mentioned above, use pain relieving topical ointment twice a day.
Good day.
