Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
These are non specific symptoms. In true labor you ll get pain in low back and abdomen radiating towards thighs. It ll be associated with show. The pain increases in intensity during contractions which comes at regular intervals and your abdomen becomes hard. If you experience these symptom you should immediately rush to hospital. Take care

I am 34, and 38 weeks pregnant. I know what back pain is like, I have chronic back pain and have had a microdiscectomy L5-S1 in 2007. I have had a sensation but it has increased in the past 2 weeks. The sensation starts in my lower back and moves up to my head, then finishes in my chest. It feels like a pulsating electrical charge that is quite painful and stops me in my tracts. It goes away if I change my position. It feels like an adernaline rush up my spine. Im not thinking it labor pains, because it is not radiating to my tummy. I can t try and have orgasim because it causes the sensation. It is quite paralysing. I have a doctors appointment monday, but I worried because it is happened quite often if I get into the wrong position.
