Neck Upper Back Pain

Has anyone else had this terrible upper back/neck pain? I'm 9 1/2 weeks along, and for at least 2 weeks now, I've had a lot of pain in this area; to the point where every day for about the past week I've had headaches from it. I try laying flat, or with pillow, on my back, or on my side when I sleep, just to try to see if anything helps . . . this pain lasts all day long and is making me miserable. Any suggestions/sympathy out there? Hubby doesn't understand why I hurt so much and isn't a good back massager . . . So I suffer :o)

I had the same problem when I was about 20 weeks. What worked for me was to have someone crack my back. I had the pain just above my shoulder blades and I couldn't crack it myself so I had someone do it for me. Let me tell you, the pain was gone that day. I haven't had any more pain and I am now 33w5d!!

Me too! Also 9½ weeks and I hate it because it disrupts my sleep and I wake up feeling more tired and grumpy. The headache doesn't help with the nausea I already feel either .

I do crack it periodically--I have a joint disorder, so I crack everything, pretty much, daily . . . that helps short-term but usually within a few hours (maximum), I'm hurting again. But that is where it hurts. Thanks for the input!
