pregnancy pain

I am 18 weeks pregnant. I woke up at 4:30 on friday and that was the last time I slept, because of the backache...

I know backache is normal during pregnancy and that it sould be monitored if there is any foot swelling.

But it felt like there was a vertical drawstring in the left lower portion of my back and every few minutes it would be pulled and for that time (just a few seconds) I felt paralysed (couldn''t even breathe).

is this normal? for pregnant ladies?

It could be normal, but best to let your doctor check it out.
