severe back pain
AmandaDanielleBrown posted:
im at 27 weeks now and i sit basically my entire shift (8 hours) with maybe 2, 15 minute breaks (with a lunch break) if i can stand not to use the restroom between breaks. recently my back has been KILLING me, its either middle or lower back and i cant really change positions too drastically or move around. im just wondering if anyone knows anything i can do to improve the pain. my options are limited i know but any suggestions would help at this point. ive only gained maybe 7lbs so far so im not sure why its so bad since the "added weight" isnt much so it shouldnt be causing this much pain.
