Throbbing pain in back during pregnancy. Should I be worried, how to get relief?

I have had a throbbing pain going on for 3 days in my back. It s towards the right side of my spine and towards the center of may back, not really that low like close to my buttocks , it higher. It s not up by my shoulders either. I has not moved to another spot in my back, it has been contant in the same exact spot for over 3 days. I am almost 7 months pregnant with my 3rd child. I remember having back pain like this before but it was right before my other 2 boys were born. Is this something that I should be worrying about or call m OB right away? Please help

Back pain during pregnancy is a common phenomenon due to altered posture and stretching. In your case you had similar episodes during past. These pains usually do not require medicines and hot foamentation and ointment massage would help in reducing the intensity.These pains are forgotten soon after delivery. So I suggest that you need not worry for now.
