hello i m having a lower back sprain since 2 weeks. the pain isn't constant but it hurts wen I get up frm a place or when I m sitting. I have been using a spray prescibed by my gynac and also a painkiller Tramadol. but I hv used the painkiller tablet only thrice as I m scared to use more. Is There anything else I can do to ease this sprain.?

Dr Nikhil Datar

I suppose you are a pregnant girl. backaches are usually common yet one must rule out muscular injury by examination. regarding pain killers paracetamol 650 mg thrice a day can be taken pretty safely. you can add local cream hot foametation to it.

Dr Nikhil Datar

I now see that u r in early pregnancy 7 weeks. you may first try with local medication and only if required take medicine. paracetamol is considered as safe enough
