Panados, elevate your feet when sitting down and rest as much as you can

Hi Blondie

I know how you feel. Try this and see if it helps. When lying down, sleep with only one pillow and use a conti pillow underneath your knees. But as doc says get plenty of rest/ Unfortuneatly you can only have panados for the pain. Be careful of back muscle spasm.

Good luck!

Hi Blondie

Backache in pregnancy is very common. If you are worried, pls call your doctor.
