Hi doctor,

I am 23 weeks pregnant. I am having butt pain from two days. I am unable to sit or stand. Please suggest what to do.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It probably comes from your ligaments becoming looser, getting ready for birth. It is very common in pregnancy.
  • I suggest you take Paracetamol 1 g up to four times a day (safe in pregnancy). Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
  • Look on the internet for back stretches. There are few websites which have a good section on back pain in pregnancy.
  • Also, you could consult a physiotherapist or chiropractor who can be very helpful.

Hope this helps.
