PostSubject: Lower back pain during cycle   Tue Dec 01, 2009 9:37 am

Ugh... I guess it's gotta happen sometime Blue
I never really had bad cramps during those 'special days' lol. But now for the first time, I am along with lower back pain. It's awful No

I took some Aleve but not really helping. Does anyone else get lower back pain and if so, what have u taken?

I really think Motrin works well. Have you tried a heating pad?

Sorry to hear your in pain, Carol.


He doesn't always answer in the way that we want, but in a way He thinks is best for each of us.

I wonder if Rob has dealt with this issue? Whistle

Since I've injured my back three times, lower back pain comes and goes, but it's usually around during that time. Motrin is good and the heating pad can help, but sometimes cold does a better job for me. Walking helps to strengthen the muscles in your back, so I usually try to get out and walk once a week. Should be more often but my schedule doesn't allow it. Stretching exercises help me too. Those back massage products are pretty cool.

I hope the pain goes away soon Carol.

I sometimes get this. Advil always does the trick for me on all of those "special symptoms."

Carol, I would recommend an ice pack. I have back aches quite often, and I see a chiropractor every few months. He has always told me to use ice packs. He's never suggested heat. I've tried heating pads in the past, but I tend to think that ice works better. Heating pads would be soothing for cramps, though.

This is going to sound funny, but if I'm having cramps at night, and the Motrin hasn't kicked in yet, my little, hot blooded Italian Greyhound is used as my hot water bottle. She sleeps with us, and always lays up against my stomach when I'm sleeping on my side. She generates so much heat for such a lean, short-haired pooch. LOL!! But that's what they're known for. Yes, I know I'm weird!!

Teresa, that is TOO cute! Gosh, what a handy little guy! Laughing

Yep, I'm a 'Motrin' girl myself. A heating pad (or a hot blooded Italian man greyhound batEyes ) should do the trick. Feel better Carol!

Yes, ice is best. I thought heat too, but have learned with a frozen shoulder that ice is the way to go.

I often have lower back pain, but that is more associated with arthritis than anything else. Cold for this kind of pain only makes it worse, so I have to go with heat and ibuprofen.

More than back pain though, I always seem to get the worst headaches during my cycle and I have spoken to other women who have the same complaint. I don't know how the two would be associated though.

My chiropractor has always told me to alternate between heat and ice actually. I guess just try both Carol and see what works for you!

Pam, I get headaches sometimes too around mine. Actually, all of my symptoms at that time of the month have increased since I've been nearing the 'big one'. Whistle I have no doubt that I'm perimenopausal and that's why everything is changing for me. I've always been very fortunate with a lack of symptoms before and during 'that time', but now---not so much. scared Hormones are a powerful thing.

Wouldn't you agree Rob? HeeHee

It's nice that Rob is so in touch with his feminine side.

I have hit the "big one" and my cycle is still the same as it has always been. I say bring menopause on. I could use some hot flashes about now anyway. It seems I'm always freezing lately. Laughing

Pam!! LOL!! laugh3 You know, I'm thinking I am DEFINITELY going through the perimenopause...they just had a doctor on this morning saying that thinning hair is one of the symptoms. Um, that would be me.

I do experience back pain some months, in the days leading up to, and first 2 days of, my cycle. I usually take Motrin and it really helps alot...and usually some chocolate helps too grinsmiley Teresa, that's too funny about your dog - it's the same way with mine! Sometimes I joke around and call him 'my little heating pad' because he lays up against my stomach during the night too...it really does help a little like a heating pad! My husband thinks I'm crazy! ROFL. laugh3
