Achy achy back!!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi ladies anyone have issues with back ache at all? This last week i have really struggled. Its hard to describe but its like aches you get when you have flu. Not painful just draining. No matter how I sit or lie down its there and as usual with this peri meno I am starting yo exaggerate the worry. ... Is it my kidneys playing up etc etc.

Sat here now feeling blue ( whereas i had previously had quite a nice week or two).

If my periods were rdgular id say I wss going to come on ???

Ache is in my shoulder blades too and feel so drained. I tried to lie down and sleep it off with nurofen but just couldnt get comfy. Its been about a week now and im dresding going yo work sat st s pc all dsy as itll be so painful!

Any help/comments appreciated. Thank you x

    I could've written this!! My lower back been killing me all week, since I finished my period on Monday of this week in fact. I've also been having dizzy spells which I normally get around ovulation and my period. However the pain in my back is also in my womb area, like you, I feel like I'm going to bleed again, I feel drained too, emotional and my concentration is not up to much - definite 'period due' markers for me, yet I only finished 5 days ago. Just so sick of all this now. Hope you're feeling better soon x

    I have had that this past week. It's my lower back which usually only happens when it's time for my cycle but I just finished Monday. Then I thought it was my kidneys but remembered this happened to me around the same time last month. It's so darn annoying. I just have been trying to ignore as to not drive my anxiety crazy.

      Hi jamie well i just woke up from another uncomfortable night sleep!!. Painkillers for breakfast now! This is so tiring!! Ive not suffered with such aching back problems before so now paranoid there is something wrong like kidney infection or something?

      Head and arms aches a bit too like when you are getting over flu?

      Ill see how it goes today but looks like another trip to the docs needed or itll make the coming week ahead at work so difficult😂. Have an important meeting Tuesday and this is not gonna help me -grrrr!

      I'm sorry to hear it's bothering you. Sometimes the aching makes me think it's my kidney's too but I always get it close to my menses. But definitely see the doc again. It will help reassure your mind that it's not your kidneys. Hope you get some relief soon.
