Lower back pain during early pregnancy
Dear Doc, I am so excited!!!! It took me 11 months to fall pregnant again after my miscarriage. Did a test this morning after being one week late with my cycle & the 2nd stripe appeared almost immediately. However, I have extreme lower back pain (feels like a muscle that's cought). I am in tremendous pain & can't sit, stand or walk for a long time. Even sleeping at night causes discomfort. Is there anything that I can do to relieve the pain & is lower back pain normal at such an early stage in pregnancy?

I agree with your doctor though stress can certainly contribute.
