Burning, sensitivity in lower back, hip area, old stretch marks, pregnant. Treatment?

For the last week my lower left back right above my hip area has felt burnt and sensitive to anything touching or runbbing against it. There is nothing visual on my skin other than old stretch marks . I am 9 weeks pregnant and this started last Tuesday and has not went away. Any idea what it could be or how I can make it go away as it is very annoying?

Dear lady,

I am Dr. (Col) R Karanwal, M.D. (Internal Medicine), Consultant Physician, for your assistance.

Thanks for reposing your faith in me and post your query on this website. I fully appreciate your concerns.

Increased or abnormal sensations usually occur due to compression over the nerves supplying the involved area. It can be due to protrusion of a disc(s) which are present between the vertebra of the back bone.

Since you have early pregnancy, X-rays/CT/MRI are contra-indicated.

Consult your Gynac/Neurologist to pinpoint the exact cause and prescribe medicines which are safe in early pregnancy.

Please feel free to revert back to me in case of further clarifications, if any.

I am sure that you will benefit from the advice.

May I assure you that I am always available for your assistance. My endeavor would always be to give you a sound medical advice, to the best of my knowledge and vast experience.


Fond Regards,

Dr.(Col) R Karanwal
