    Any help would be appreciated.

    I am six weeks into my second pregnancy. My daughter was born 3 years ago. I had to have an emergency c section. I never had back pain until later on but I have been suffering really badly with pain in my back which centres around where my epidural was attempted..(10 times) has anyone experienced this and is it just a co incidence? I have been to doctor who said just take paracetamol and I don't get booked in with midwives til next week.

    I am not sure if I want to take paracetamol in the first 12 weeks... Any pain relief ideas will be welcomed.

    Thank you!

    Paracetamol is fine during pregnancy and won't affect the baby at all.

    You could try soaking in a warm bath xxx
