Severe Back Pain

1 Replies
Tonia - April 17

I'm 24 weeks and I just started having this really bad back pain, it stretches from my lower back on the right side all the way around to the front like halfway across my thigh but the pain is in my back and hip, I want to go and get checked out for it but I don't have any insurance for another two weeks and can't afford the doctor bills. Should I be worried that it is a sign of preterm labor or chalk it up as another discomfort of being pregnant. It wakes me up during the night, and I fall asleep crying because it hurts so much. It's really scary 'cause I haven't seen a doctor since January.

I would go to the Doctor as soon as you can. I am 15wks and I started having severe back pain a couple of weeks ago. It got so bad this weekend I had to go to emergency...It turns out I have a swollen kidney. Possibly from pressure the baby is putting on it or from kidney stones. The pain is still there but is more managed now with medicine. Trust me a doctor visit is much cheaper than the ER..try to get in to see somebody...maybe look for a clinic in your area that helps those without insurance. Or look into the WIC (women infants and children) program which provides Medicare/medicaid to those without insurance.
