Hi, last Friday I was running a lot of errands and kept lifting my infant in his baby carrier in and out of my truck, I think this cause some type of muscle strain in my back. I had some dull pain that night and then woke up the next morning with incredible pain that was hard to walk around or do anything. I went to the doctor and was told it was musculoskeletal pain and should go away in a few days. I was taking a lot of ibuprofen for it which did not help at all and now the ibuprofen has caused me some gastritis (yay). The back pain gets better throughout the day but is incredibly painful at night and in the morning and it’s now been a week. Will this go away eventually?  I’ve never had back pain ever before so I am not sure what to expect.. thanks!

    Hi Nicole, pain in the back is horrendous, carrying a nipper about especially on your hip is sooo bad, where abouts in your back is it, lumber??

      It’s on the left side mainly lower but also I feel it the most when I put my head down then it’s a sharp pain. It’s very tolerable during the day but when I wake up in the night and morning then it’s super painful.

    Over the years I have put my back out a number of times and have always got full recovery from going to recommended physiotherapist. It sounds to me that it was caused by lifting your son's baby carrier out of a vehicle bending your back awkwardly and taking the weight at the same time. Best of luck Rhodri.
