More Early Morning Back Pain

Today I find myself awake at 4 am again. I think the pain on my upper back is actually worse this morning. Now it's radiating around into the front of my belly and ribs. If I move the wrong way it takes the breath out of me.

Brandon is out of town but coming home this evening. I tried sleeping in the middle of the bed with pillows surrounding me in case I tried to move too much. Still no luck. I'm on the recliner now applying heat to my back. My return chiropractor appointment is late this afternoon and I'm hoping they can try something else to help. Not only am I uncomfortable now, but it lasts into the morning and it comes back during the day. :(

I do hate to complain, but I desperately need a full night's rest. I haven't slept through the night all week and I'm worn down by 4 pm each afternoon. Plus not being able to breathe is scary. I will update after my chiropractor appointment tonight or either tomorrow. And again, sorry to keep complaining.


  1. This is horrible :( I'm so sorry sweetie. Praying that you find some comfort and relief from the pain. Hopefully the chiro can also find a cause!

  2. I am so sorry you are suffering like this. It must be horrible. I hope you get some relief soon!

  3. You have the right to complain. No one likes to be in pain. Hope they can do something for you soon.

  4. I sure hope you get some relief soon. So sorry you are not able to get the rest you so sorely need. Praying that the chiro can help you!

  5. Heating bad helped me a lot too, I also broke down and took tylenol every 4 hours. Maybe the baby is laying face down on your tailbone? Hope the chiro can help!!!!!

  6. That’s definitely not a good thing, especially in your condition. I hope your chiro appointment went well and relieve you from pain. I think back pain common among expecting mothers. I had the same problem when I was pregnant 2 years ago. Anyway, how are you now? I hope the pain is already gone and you were able to have a harmonious sleep. Take care!
