Pregnant, have severe lower back pain. What can be done?

Im pregnant with lower back pain , is there anything I can take? It was so bad I took a tylenol one day but I haven t done that again. I am only 10 weeks but I was like this during the second half of my first child. This time it happened right away. I also get headaches but I thought whatever I took for the back might help with this too. I told my OB and after leaving his office I realized he never answered my question!

Hello there,

Tynelol is paracetamol. The only pain killer preferred in pregnancy is paracetamol. Others should be avoided. So if you took tynelol then its no problem.
Although paracetamol readily crosses the placenta, at recommended doses it does not appear to increase the risk of birth defects or other adverse outcomes of pregnancy.
Taking more than the recommended dose of paracetamol may cause harm to the mother or baby's lives or kidneys. So taking paracetamol occasionally for painkiller in adequate doses is fine.
Inacse of severe backache, you can apply voveron gel over the back. Local application wont harm you in anyway.
