Hello,
Thanks for writing in to hcm.

I understand your concern.kindly consult your obstetritian as The safest pain killers that can be taken during pregnancy is paracetamol 500mg twice a day (donot exceed 1500 mg / day). donot take medication for longer duration.
It is safer to apply analgesic diclofenac topical creams on the affected area instead.
Also sleep n a soft bed and use a pillow comfortable to you.

Hope your query was answered.
Regards,
Dr.Riyanka
