Dear Pratibha,thanks for query.During pregnancy the weight of uterus is increased.Due to this its support are getting stretched.Normally this all changes come back to pre pregnancy stage after 6-8 weeks.This at times give rise to pain.At times when you are nursing your baby your calcium requirements are quite high.Please start taking calcium tablets along with proper diet till at least 1 year after delivery.At the same time if the backache is very severe please take help of orthopedic surgeon.bye and take care.

Hello Doctor I am a 67 yr old wht female I have worked with animals most of my life, from domestic to exotic, cheetahs, chimps, etc. Twenty yrs ago I developed a severe back problem after an extreme case of sciatica Fat forward to now, I have no medical doctor, other than chiropractor and occasional acupuncture Current Health Issues In the Extreme: Possible tape worm just collected after fast, pomegranates and oxygen just yesterday. Up to that point, blood and feces come back neggative for parasites. Other mainstream difficulties 1. Have not been able to walk upright for over 20 yrs now Back straightens up but cannot remain erect as muscle will not hold torso upp, so after about 15 steps i FALL FORWARD AND CANNOT HOLD MYSELF UPRIGHT TO WALK. 2. Moregellions in my hair, face all over of recent QUESTION; Is it possible the parasites weakened my back and stomach muscles and caused the back issue ? How to get rid of these damn Morgellons? Is there a cure as I am going nuts bathing three times a day and lost over half of my hair. Have recent cloudy mental and difficulty breathing Live in So Cal No insurance other than Medicare as I lost my job due to Morgellons.
